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.

Cleaning out Dawn's garage

When we moved from Kirbyville to Burkville in 1997, we stored some of our stuff in Dawn's garage, actually, at the time it was Memaw's garage. Well, mom has been on me to come go through my stuff and help get it cleaned out. Dawn said most of the stuff wasn't hers but she was wrong. We spent yesterday going through boxes and stacks of stuff. I found all of Courtney's baby clothes that I had saved, a few dishes, and lots of papers. I threw some away, left some there and brought some home. Above, are the before and after pictures. I think we did a pretty good job.
