Happy Father’s Day Thoughts

Taking a little trip down memory lane, I did this post on facebook last night:

Facebook post on Father's Day June 16 2013

And then I began thinking about my Heavenly Father — you know the One Who Made us all?!

Father’s Day is not just about your earthly dad.  I am pausing to say thanks to my heavenly Father for all His tender loving care along the Way!  I am grateful especially for His patience, mercies, healing touches and gentle nudges at just the right time.  He does things in a way so that I can see and hear and understand a little more about Him each time!  The unfolding revelation and the comfort of His presence is beyond compare and an eternal promise.

I have a lot to be thankful for!

Blessings,

Sandie

Alaska Adventure – Jim’s Wild Ride and a New Flock Too

Recently some good friends of mine moved to Alaska and have started blogging the adventure! The posts are amazing as are the photographs. So I thought that you all might enjoy a sample to find out a little about how they are settling in and learning to live in really cold weather and prepare to live off the land as needed too. Here’s the most recent intro to his new flock.

Jim’s Flock
Two and a half weeks ago, Jim made the decision to start a flock of poultry. His goal is to move away, even if just a little bit, from dependence on the grocery stores. After talking to some friends who’ve raised farm animals for food, chickens for eggs and meat seemed like a good way to dip our toes into a new level of self-reliance.

It started out innocently enough, with an order for a dozen chicks from the local feed store. Poultry raising is popular here, and certain birds have a waiting list, such as the Aricauna hens that lay blue and green eggs. We have six of those, and four golden Wyandottes. They’re all pullets and we can expect them to lay eggs beginning this fall. Here are most of them the day they came home:
