About Me and My Blog

I am a Christian wife, mother, grandmother, teacher, friend and who ever else I am. I have been married for thirty-one years to my best friend, Greg. We live in a small town in East Texas. I am the FCS County Extension Agent. I enjoy sewing, camping, gardening, spending time with family, traveling, riding with Greg on his motorcycle. I am learning about beekeeping, soapmaking, rainwater catchment and other farmish type activities.
The name of my blog comes from a sermon I heard once about a time when Paul had been arrested and was being taken to Rome as a prisoner. The ship, on which he traveled found safe harbor, for the winter, at a place called Fairhaven. The captain of the ship wasn't content with staying so he set sail again and later was ship wrecked. I apply this to my life in that I want to be content with where God has me and what he has for me. If I am not I may end up like the ship that carried Paul, shipwrecked.

No baby pooch yet.
These are the baby chicks I bought three weeks ago. This is when I first got them. They have grow tremendously. I will include a picture of how big they have gotten soon.

I was out of town for the weekend and Greg actually washed a load of clothes and hung them on the line. I took a picture for proof.

Last Sunday at church

Last Sunday Todd, Janice and the boys were in for a visit. Micah had been saved several years ago, but never baptized. So, they wanted to baptize him at our home church in a swimming pool. I was glad we could all be apart of the baptism.

Planting at Mike and Linda's

A few weeks back we went out and helped Mike and Linda on their farm. Since their car accident they haven't been able to do a lot so we went and helped them plant green beans and potatoes. Can't you just taste a big pot of green beans with new potatoes floating around in them? The top picture is Linda and her cast and the next two are Greg and Mike hard at work. The day before we came out to help, Mike was running the tiller with broken ribs. I think we came to help just in time.
