A Blessings Beyond the Barnyard update…
>getting ready to host my very first GIVEAWAY..a precious, vintage top, hand stitched quilt!
Compliments of my precious mother. Details coming SOON!
>If you are not following blessingsbrnyrd on Instagram JOIN IN..when the days are full Istagram is the easiest way to stay connected and informed of the latest happenings on the farm, at the store and life in general…Sometimes the pics are inspirational and other times they’re real like ..the scary, scary picture of one of the boys skanky rooms I posted this morning…
Seriously, Instagram is still my newest favorite place.
>I’m waiting to share an AMAZING story that developed after one of the boys prayed a special prayer. I hoping he is going to agree to record a quick video with me..This story is too good not to see it told in real life. (If you were at WVCC a couple weeks ago you know the story)
> A graphic designer friend and I have something simmering. YOU DO NOT WANT TO MISS THIS..Stay tuned…
>Yes, I’, still writing the manuscript. While dusting (#gasp, I know! I dust. who knew?) the other day I had an epiphany, probably onset by all of the dust but it came to mind most of the major events in my life personally have developed after long seasons of wait. Our children, evidence #1. My journey home from public school #2 The development of this blog and the list goes on. I have made peace with the fact a book can take years. I am writing late at night while my kids are sleeping and growing because when they are awake, it’s busy and fun and I don’t want to miss a thing.
I ask that you bear with me and stick around. The manuscript is developing (slowly but surely) Good things come to those who wait.
>Partnered with a friends yesterday and visited the local jail. It was the best, most refreshing thing I’ve been a part of in a log time. I’m still processing all of the good things that happened and hope to write about it soon. Pray for me as I prepare to go back this Sunday to encourage the ladies in The Lord.
> CHRISTMAS TREES are going FAST! if you are local GET YOUR TREE while supplies last at Fort Payne Feed & Garden.
whew… here is an oldie but a goodie to keep you in the Thanksgiving spirit.
A timehop that’s worth repeating…

6 days ago I posted this on Facebook:
“I pray whoever finds the 100 dollar bill I just dropped and lost in Bruce’s Foodland needs it worse than I do or will be honest and return it to the service desk :(”
God hears and answers prayers!
the THANKSGIVING MIRACLE!

That is just absolutely awesome. I once found $170 under my car at the bank. I took it inside, thinking someone has got to realize they lost the money. Plus, it wasn’t mine. The tellers thanked me for my honesty. Three months later the money was still unclaimed and they put it in my account. I totally didn’t expect that. Anyway…=)
