About Me

My photo
Fayette Co, KY, United States
I am a country girl stuck in the city, for the time-being. I enjoy the country way of life, and practice that in my home as best I can by canning and preserving foods, cooking and baking from scratch, crocheting, living vicariously thru the many blogs I follow about country life. I enjoy learning about raising livestock, and glean from my past employment and personal experiences of working with animals to fuel some of my postings. I have 5 cats, who keep my life interesting. And I am also an amateur poet. Thanks for stopping by and checking out this Farmer-gal who is caught in town, for now.

Sunday Sabbath

I'm taking an idea for a Sunday blog post from Sandra over at Thistle Cove Farm - some of my favorite quotes that you may find interesting or encouraging.

Make it your ambition to lead a quiet life, to mind your own business and to work with your hands, just as we told you, so that your daily life may win the respect of outsiders and so that you will not be dependent on anybody. 1 Thessalonians 4:11-12

"To be yourself in a world that is constantly trying to make you something else is a great accomplishment . . ." Ralph Waldo Emerson

"Do not part with your dreams or aspirations for when they are gone you will exist, but you have ceased to live." Henry David Thoreau 

But he said to me, "My grace is sufficient for you, for my power is made perfect in weakness." Therefore I will boast all the more gladly about my weaknesses, so that Christ's power may rest on me. 2 Corinthians 12:9

Everyone - have a blessed Sunday, and enjoy your weekend. From Fayette Co KY.

The first one rings true for me. I surely have lead a quiet life. I've always worked with my hands and tried to mind my own business. Not to be dependent on anyone? hmmm. Don't think I'm quite there, yet. Have a blessed day.
