Fencing…

With an apparent drought again. Ugh.Β  Fencing is dominating our free time.Β  Suppose, I best up the ante on the prayers for moisture…

My Dad’s cousin sent me this. It fits today perfectly.
She loves being outside working with Daddy!

Happy Feast of the Annunciation!

Well Read Moms met last night. I really value these ladies. They hold me accountable in being the best wife, mother, and friend that I am able to be. God Bless them and All that help us grow closer to God.

Happy St. Patrick’s Day ☘️

Helping out a neighbor and doing his chores.
Older version:

O my God, I believe in Thee; do Thou strengthen my faith. All my hopes are in Thee; do Thou secure them. I love Thee with my whole heart; teach me to love Thee more and more. I am sorry that I have offended Thee; do Thou increase my sorrow. I adore Thee as my first beginning; I aspire after Thee as my last end. I give Thee thanks as my constant benefactor; I call upon Thee as my sovereign protector. Vouchsafe, O my God, to conduct me by Thy wisdom, to restrain me by Thy justice, to comfort me by Thy mercy, to defend me by Thy power. To Thee I desire to consecrate all my thoughts, my actions, and my sufferings, that I henceforward may think only of Thee, speak only of Thee, and ever refer all my actions to Thy greater glory, and suffer willingly whatever Thou shalt appoint. O Lord, I desire that in all things Thy will be done, because it is Thy will, and in the manner that Thou willest. I beg of Thee to enlighten my understanding, to inflame my will, to purify my body, and to sanctify my soul. Give me strength, O my God, to expiate my offenses, to overcome my temptations, to subdue my passions, to acquire the virtues proper for my state. Fill my heart with tender affection for Thy goodness, a hatred of my faults, a love for my neighbor, and a contempt for the world. Let me always be submissive to my superiors, kind and courteous to my subordinates, faithful to my friends, and charitable to my enemies. Assist me to overcome sensuality by mortification, avarice by almsdeeds, anger by meekness, and tepidity by zeal. O my God, make me prudent in my undertakings, courageous in dangers, patient in affliction, and humble in prosperity. Grant that I may be ever attentive at my prayers, temperate at my meals, diligent in my employments, and constant in my resolutions. Let my conscience be ever upright and pure, my exterior modest, my conversation edifying, my comportment regular. Assist me, that I may continually labor to overcome nature, correspond with Thy grace, keep Thy commandments, and work out my salvation. Discover to me, O my God, the nothingness of this world, the greatness of heaven, the shortness of time, the length of eternity. Grant that I may be prepared for death, fear Thy judgments, escape hell, and, in the end, obtain heaven. Through Christ our Lord. Amen.

Padlock Grazing

Andrew designed electric fence padlocks in the marsh in order that we utilize every stitch of grass and grazing area with our yearlings.Β  We use the horses every day to round them up and move them across the road.

☘️ Happy St. Patrick’s Day tomorrow! Corned beef and cabbage.☘️

Read

I suppose it’s partly by my nature, and probably how I was raised, but I really hope to instill a love of reading in my children.Β  A lifelong reader, of good material, is a lifelong learner.

Storytime.
March is reading month.
