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.

The strangest thing happened last night.  I got a call from Greg as I was coming home from class.  He asked why the little bench in front of our house was crushed and neatly stacked in a pile.  I had no idea, it was fine when I left home.  Evidently, someone pulled in the drive in front of our house and ran into the bench, crushing it and messing up the siding on the house.  We are hoping who ever did it will confess.  This is the second time our house has been run into by a car.  We don't live on a corner and to hit the house would take an effort.  Maybe someone came by to see us and accidently put it in drive instead of reverse.  It is a mystery.
