Five years ago today I said “Goodbye and good RIDDANCE” to breast cancer. It was one of the darkest and most scary times in my life. And yet, one of my most blessed times as well. Sound odd? Believe me, it does to me too. But I guess sometimes when you’re at the lowest and most fearful point in your life, things happen.
It’s hard to believe we’re already in the waning days of 2017! And we’ve got a bright new year in front of us, full of possibilities & promise. But I’d like to take a moment & reflect on 2017 first. Today I’m sharing the top 10 homesteading posts of 2017. This list includes a few recipes such as no-knead Boule Bread and our favorite Planned Leftovers Meal – Carnitas Tacos. And it also includes some crafts such as making your own chalkboard labels with things you’ve already got. There are also some posts about interesting social observations that y’all really liked this year. Grab a cup of coffee & c’mon in, y’all!
For fellow Christians who really want to keep Christ in Christmas, there’s no need to demand that companies say ‘Merry Christmas’ instead of ‘Happy Holidays‘ or fight the masses about the design on a disposable cup. It’s actually much easier than you’d think.
Let’s all strive for a kinder, gentler holiday season this year.
Today’s a special day for me, since April 12th, 2013 was the day I Kicked Cancer To The Curb! Praise God, today I’m still cancer free!
My prayer today is for strength & healing for those still struggling with this awful disease, and to remember those gone way too soon because of it.
C’mon by & sit a spell! Come hang out at our Facebook Page. It’s like sitting in a front porch rocker with a glass of cold iced tea. There are lots of good folks sharing! And you can also follow along on Pinterest,Twitteror Instagram
