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.

Fallish Activities

I love the fall, it is my favorite season.  The cooler days and sunshine just make me smile.  Here are a few things we have been up to.

Outdoor birthday party

Visit to the Tyler Rose Garden.  I didn't
take any pictures of the roses though.

Trip to Galveston for the day to eat on the seawall, ride the ferry
and go to the Railroad Museum.  This ship was
a little to close in my opinion.

Here's a picture advertising 4-H
Anything outside is great this time of year. 
It won't be long until we light up the chiminea(spelling?)
and cook some campfire stew or just sit around and drink coffee.
I love sleeping with the window open in our bedroom.  I also
look forward to the lower electric bills.  I think if we had a fenced
in backyard I would set up our tent and sleep outside.
