Title Overview

As a teenager & young adult living in the fast lane it surely did make me try to lose my mind (as the song says). But then there was a change that occurred in my life in which I am glad to say “I’d like to keep my mind !” Guess that’s why I love 2 Timothy 1:7 For God hath not given us the spirit of fear; but of power, and of love, and of a sound mind. That goes to show me who had control over my mind! Don’t think for a moment that we are not who we hang out with, listen to, read about or look at! I am thankful for a new walk, and a new talk for I once was lost but am now found!

Fence Building Cont'd

Then, you gather children, nephews, neighbors and nail three boards across (2x6's I think). Finally, you nail your fence board in place using string across top for perfection.  Now, these are basic instructions (from a woman of course), so if you are really interested in building a fence "google it".....lol 
My children have been such a blessing throughout this process!  They put up the majority of the fence, took down the old fence and soooooo on!  Thank you boys and yes my lil strong daughter as well!

 Looking Good! (now remember, the boys are the ones who put up this whole section of fence board) Awesome job!!!!
The next thing will be to paint a protector stain. 
We also recycled the old boards to finish back of fence since it is in front of the woods.  And, because of unleveling, those old boards were used as a barrier on bottom so the dogs can't get out!

All Puppies Gone!

Good-Bye to the last puppy.  He was the tiniest of the bunch.....he weighed 2lbs when he had his first visit.  I am excited to have been able to spend an extra week with him and that he has an awesome home to be a part of.  Enjoy and may your new addition be a blessing to your home!

As we celebrate this day, remember those who fight for our freedom in prayer.  Most of all, thanks to our Most High God for freedom of worship & freedom to praise His Name!
Thank God for freedom from the yolks of sin! 
If my people, which are called by my name, shall humble themselves, and pray, and seek my face, and turn from their wicked ways; then will I hear from heaven, and will forgive their sin, and will heal their land.
If you have never read the Bible, I encourage you to take this opportunity to read while you have a chance. The first is a link to a dramatized version King James Version.  Very good and highly recommended!

Domestic Engineering 102
Notice where the old fence is......
Step 1 Dig deep holes (rent a hole digger)
Step 2 Pour water & cement into hole with a leveled pole in middle (ha) (use a leveler) and twine to make sure poles are level and straight.....& wait a day or so for it to dry.

Good-Bye Puppies 
Well, this is it! How time flies.....the puppies are ready to go to their new homes. Here's a couple of good-bye pictures.......
