The 'RULES' of Life...

R there such a thing, 
one has to sit & ponder the thought!
~Pamela Anthony 

Pondering the thought of 'RULES'...
you may say... why, YES... they are to life as air is to breathing!

BUT, throughout life... often times than NOT, there
have been those imaginary 'RULES' that filled my mind with
what I thought was the gospel, you know...
those 'RULES' that came from everyone else's view, opinions
OR tradition!  And, I JUST assumed... not wanting to create OR
make a fuss... allowed THEIR 'RULES' to have an impact on how
I lived my life OR reacted to certain circumstances!

Well... with each passing year of '43', there has been
learning curves, suffering pain & raw grief that has ALMOST destroyed
everything that was used in my creation from God, my heart & soul!

It's brought me to a point, a chapter... better yet... a season!
A season, in which... would not have BLOSSOMED without the past years of
what was JUST described, NOTHING I would hope upon my worst enemy
(heaven forbid if I have any)!  BUT, what the devil meant for harm, God
brought forth good in order to bring about my current being!

Therefore... I've claimed VICTORY over
those so-called 'RULES' that kept me bound with restrictions & doubt
for SO many years!  

There is & are GLORIFIED reason's for my life today...
a life JUST not of existing, BUT, of a life worth living X 10!

Not, ONLY did I share these words for me, BUT most importantly
for someone else, whom may have OR may be there at this VERY moment...
to believe & know, without a shadow of a doubt... YOU TOO ARE WORTH SAVING!

God created YOU & I for greatness... it's up to YOU & I to claim that GREATNESS!
He NEVER said the cross would be light... it carries weight, a weight worth
carrying... throughout the season's of life!

NOW, pick it up & GO forth to your GREATNESS, my friend!

JUST in case your wondering... 

Why... I paired these photos up with this testimony...
WELL... they are apart of my evolving... my life without the following
of 'RULES' from others, from the past of pleasing others!

I've been on the road since September 2014 now... following my heart & WHEREVER
the road may lead!  The opportunities have surpassed ANYTHING of my
understanding & continues to bless my soul!  My goal is for other's
to see JESUS through what I have to offer along the path of road trips!

It's NOT by my hand, BUT by His grace & strength!

Where Days R Well Spent...

I had rather be on my farm
than be an emperor of the world.
- George Washington

The 1st day of June, dawned EARLY...
here at the farm!  There's SO much to be had within
the next, few weeks with upcoming
deadlines, project completions & a GRAND
show in the fix.

Of course... the farm duties are repeat
actions, NO matter the moment, everyday
chores that wait for no one!  SO, I've
been REALLY trying to capture those
EARLY morning dew drops
between my toes, as I tip through
the grass to start the day!

The 'ladies' find it quite welcoming
for the EARLY morning greetings,
from inside the coops, now!

For the days past... consisted of them
WELCOMING me outside the back gate
to the porch, bickering frantically that
I had forgotten them!

Oh, how they ADORE me now... :)

The mornings bring SUCH beauty
as the stroll takes me toward the coops!

The 'Annabelle' Hydrangea's... are scattered,
tucked & nestled throughout the gardens!
They are now, JUST a memory in sight... though,
while giving way to other 'Hydrangea' varieties
to make a show!

As previously mentioned... 
I'm in complex preparation for one of the
GRANDEST shows/pop-up fairs in the South!
'Beehind Thyme Farm & Garden'
will be attending as a vendor, as well as
being a guest speaker for both days there
at the event!

Be sure to mark your calendars for one,
fabulous time of shopping, gathering idea's,
eating & ENJOYING the talented hymns
that will be offered!

'City Farmhouse Pop-Up Fair'
June 19th & 20th

With the date moving at a rapid speed & time
seems to have been cut in half...
I STILL long 
to offer EACH of YOU
 a glimpse into 
the days that are WELL spent 
here at the farm!

Hope to see YOU... soon!
BLESSED day...
