He hears even the smallest

prayers. Folks I know I say it all the time but I just keep having to repeat myself GOD IS GOOD!!! Yesterday I got up to a chore I really didn't want to do, had by coffee ,got dressed and met my mom in the driveway she had come to pick me up. So we get to my mailbox and I went to mail some letters and guess what I see.....a sweet farmgirl package just for me! It was the prettiest bluejean tote with pink polka dot handles. Too cute and inside a couple of notepads. So of course I feel better and not so bogged about this chore. So we go ahead and go to Hampton and pick up a large food shipment for our co-op. Now remember I don't even want to go in the first place they load mom's van and I look back and they have stuck a package of 6 ice cream boxes in the backseat which would be fine if they where not melted and dripping down the back of the seat and into the floor, we have a 45min ride of dripping ice cream..Grrr...Satan is trying his best to make me have a bad day and with the attitude I have he may succeed. So I do what ever gal would do, well at least each of you...I stop and pray, quietly. Lord forgive me of my sour attitude and help me to do this chore with happiness and Lord we are low on meats at home please throw in a can of stew, viennas or chicken and dumplings. Thanks you Lord, Amen
Now we have to separate this load into 10 separate piles and we have tons of can drinks,salad mix and other misc. items. We start separating and guess what was there? Yep you guessed it chicken and dumplings!!! We get everything separated in the heat both mom and I are dripping sweat, mom takes me back home and we unload and I start my day, I come to my rocking chair and as Im sitting here it hits got chicken and dumplings............a smile crosses my face and tears come to my eyes yes Lord , thank you so much for hearing even this small prayer. He hears each word each thought and yet he still loves us and gives us the things we desire, maybe not all things but he knows what we need best of all. So today I am hear to tell you pray about everything, even something that seems so small he wants to handle every problem and issue we have, then be patient and wait his timing is perfect.
Hope you all have a great Friday! Blessings,Karen

Have you ever thought about.....

the tales that antique items could tale?
I am an antique freak and here lately as I acquire items to sale I have begun to wonder say for instance of the lovely vintage aprons what wonderful stories might it have like, the night a heart was broken and she wiped away the tears, or the surprise birthday party that she assisted in the baking. All the wonderful things she could tell if only we could have the ears to listen. The older I get I stop and think of times my kids have told me something only for me to be so busy not to remember what they even said. Why is it we have gotten so busy we don't take the time to listen?
When we lay down at night or get up each morning and say our prayers are we busy spitting out our wants and never stop to listen what God wants....I know I am guilty. I think from know on I will try and be more like an apron quiet with the all listing ears to hear the praise and sweet soft voice of my father. After all he is the reason this vintage gal is still here. Blessings, Karen

So much time has passed....

since I was last here and so much has gone on since that time. Where do I even begin? Well I guess i could tell you the biggest thing which happened not the best but the biggest was we lost our home to a fire 4 dys before Christmas. If you have ever had this unpleasant experience you know how it feels, if you haven't I pray you never have too. We lost pretty much everything we owned. God is good and brought us through with our heads held high. We now have a new home 3 miles from the old homeplace. It is farther back in the woods on 4 acres and we just love it.
Since that time my oldest son has moved back home so its back to the 5 of us and each day I continue to pray for my 3 boys. I am trusting Christ to keep them and I know that he will bring them all to salvation in his time. I will continue to learn what patience is and trust in my precious father's word.
I have become a more sympathetic person, I believe, and I pray that with each day that I have that I can grow closer to Christ and look forward to the day when I see all my family in church and praising him! God's goodness shines forth everyday, this month my husband and I celebrated our 8th wedding anniversary. I am so blessed to have such a loving husband, who took me and my 3 boys and has never looked back. I love him more with each passing day. I know now what True Love really is, and again I have to thank God for bringing him into our lives. One day I hope and pray my boys will see what this man who although is not their biological father but has been more of a father to them than the blood father ever has will have their eyes opened to see what he has truly done for them and given to them all unselfishly.
Well I guess this is my praise report that we have made it thus far and with Gods help will continue. I pray that each person that reads this will be blessed in whatever need you may have, until next time friends. Love and Blessings, Karen
