July 7th

Hi! Me again! Still working on uploading pictures. Two problems...1. They all have to be resized and that takes time. 2. I'm having a heck of a time getting a good signal. But I'll get it done! I have a prayer request from Tony & Shonda. Tony's mom had a stroke yesterday and is in pretty bad shape. No left side movement, slurred speech, some damage to the brain, etc...They have asked for prayer for a full recovery for her. Thanks. Comments: Terri, Crickette, & Rachel...thanks for the encouraging words and I'll still get to the blog whenever possible. It's not over til it's over! God bless you all. Please keep holding us up in prayer, and all the others! Faith

July 5th

Hi all! Well, we got all moved over to our new place! Exciting but, lots of work! Mark was so excited to have space that he set up a wagon ride for the 4th and then ended up having to work! But...5 wagons and 3 riders came anyway. We went ahead and rode for about 3 1/2 hours leaving Bob & Casey behind in the barn. When the gear started coming out for the other horses, Bob stayed WAY back in his stall. I think he was glad to see us all drive away without him. There were 3 teams of mules in the mix and what a nice peaceful ride it was. I took LOTS of pictures so I'll be posting them as I resize and edit. We are renting a farm that has a 9 stall barn, 10 fenced acres, a HUGE shed (60 feet), and 3 catfish ponds! With living quarters!!! And we didn't even find it! It found us! God just always watches over us! I have a prayer request from MI. Our good friends Larry and Linda need rain!! So, if everyone could pray with us for rain in Perry, MI so the beans don't burn up in the field, it would be greatly appreciated! Comments: Mike...HEY!!! Nice to hear from you!! We think of you guys every time we see chickory coffee (which is often down here)! Glad all is good for you and I'll try to get back to blogging more as we get more settled. Crickette...All is well here. How are you doing? Better? Joan...Big kisses to both! Thanks Rachel... glad you love the new place! We love ours too! I need to go shovel stalls so I'll keep everyone posted on our progress here! God bless! Faith
