Stranger in a Strange Land

I haven't been here for so long, I wanted to stop by and say hello.

It's been a madly busy time for us, and it's not letting up.

Two weeks ago, my beloved little horse, Archie, died of acute colic. It was the most horrid thing, and I owe an enormous debt of gratitude to both my husband and my vet, who dealt with the very worst part, while I wept uncontrollably with my daughters.

Money is tight, and as of Tuesday, I am beginning training to work from home taking call centre calls. I am praying that by the time the training is finished, God will have clearly shown me there is another way for me to contribute to the family income. A massive upsurge in orders for veg boxes would be one favoured way.

We have bantam babies, and pregnant goats.

We had no rain for like, MONTHS. Last night we had a huge (OK, US friends, it was not huge by your standards) thunder storm, and we made up a little of the rain.

I want to change everything, and find that I can change little.

God is in charge, and He knows what's going on. Which is good, because I so don't.

God bless and prosper your veggie box sales, and all your finances. God send you what you need to flourish and be happy xxx

Hello Jackie

My I am sorry to hear about your horse...I am also wondering if you have ever tried crafting and selling your goods on a site called I sold my knitted toys there for a while and that really went well. Infact, some times I could not keep up. Maybe browse the site and see what your family can make. People sell anything homemade~

Just a thought.
Happy day to you
