Still Here

These last few weeks have been really busy and I just haven't had the time to sit down and write out some new posts. Even though they have been busy, I haven't felt overwhelmed or stressed out. It's the continuous lesson of living intentionally and keeping my priorities in order.

Much has happened in the last few weeks...

The bible study that I am leading here in our home is going so well... what an answer to prayer. I am looking forward to the weeks to come as we continue or way through Faithful Abundant True and can't wait to hear at the end what God has done in the hearts of the women.

I have had a little dream come true in the last few weeks as well. A friend of mine is graciously giving me riding lessons. I am having the best time and learning so much. I took riding lessons when I was younger and never thought I would be at a place in my life when I could do it again. My friend has given me a gift and I treasure every single minute of it.

My sister, mom and I had a WONDERFUL time at the Country Living Fair and we are already talking about going back next year. The only thing I regret is that I didn't take more pictures. I came home with a few treasures - a vintage chicken feeder (I think I am going to line it with candles and evergreen and put it on our dining room table at Christmas), a really neat field basket, and a bracelet that my Mom got for me. I've been getting over a cold these last few days, so I promise there are pictures to come.

Hope all of you are enjoying these first days of Fall!!!


  1. It's so wonderful to read how God is working through the Bible Study...Our church just started one this fall and it is so encouraging!

    Riding lessons? That is an amazing gift from your friend. You look great on that horse!

    I so enjoy reading your posts, and look forward to seeing your pictures. Have a wonderful Wednesday.

    By the way, I love your September header. :)

  2. Christy. WOW...riding lessons on that gorgeous horse. How fortunate you are to have a friend bless you with that gift. I sure wish you could do your Bible study sure I would get much from it. Thank you for sharing all that you do.

  3. So glad to hear the Bible study is going well. Can't wait to hear more about it. I always wanted to learn to ride. What a gift you've received.

  4. How FUN that you are taking riding lessons! I'm excited to hear that your bible study is going well. Oh, and I am more than half way through A Mother's Hope and enjoying it so far! I've been sick, so it was perfect timing that it was on hold for me at the library right around the time that I had lots of time on my hands to read!

  5. Living intentionally and keeping my priorities in order! Love it! Great to hear about the Bible Study. I am on the ground floor of planning one in my home. I want to check out the one you made reference to. Continue to rest in HIM and have fun!

  6. It is wonderful to hear that your study is going well. I'm sure God will reveal great things. Yeah for riding lessons, what a friend you have. Jamison rode a horse for the first time last weekend and love it. Enjoy. I love the County Living Fair too, but didn't make it this year. The weather was lovely though so I'm glad you had a great time. When you're back next year make sure to wave at me :)

  7. I'm loving your blog!! I'm so glad you commented the other day. Riding lessons would be my little girl's dream come true.
