Three on Thursday – On My Wall

As you walk up to our trailer,
you’ll see these three things hanging on our wall.

An internet repeater,
we share internet service
and this little box helps us have reasonably consistant service.

Our keepsake from our 2017 Topcrain Journey,
purchased in Ohio in Amish Country.

Our keepsake from our 2007 Topcrain Journey,
I didn’t look up where we purchased this star;
it is made from old metal roofing.

Before you ask,

from a picture I gave the Farmer,
I received this coat stand for Christmas one year.
the Farmer can make almost anything from a picture.

One Thousand Gifts — January Joy Dare


January Joy Dare–capturing these gifts and joining Ann Voskamp at A Holy Experience.

“Joy is always a function of gratitude — and gratitude is always a function of perspective. If we are going to change our lives, what we’re going to have to change is the way we see.”

Three gifts that might never have been

4 of my children if what the doctor said had been true.
A 53 day road trip across the USA if we had not owned a business.

A song heard  —  “Every Need Supplied, Cleansing, Healing, Sweet peace inside, Every Need Supplied.”
A soft word  —  “Well, Good Morning” every day by the Farmer.
Where you saw light  —  Every night I look up to the heavens and check to see the moon and the stars, and I’m thankful for yet another day.

a gift found

On a paper–  “Bought in 1923. In Peters Drug store in Pawnee, Okla. 19cents each.” Written on a scrap of paper by my Grandmother Ripley and tucked in between three clear glass bowls. I have loved using them. Now they live with my daughters.

On a person  —  enjoying that fresh washed baby powder scent  on a little one while rocking it to sleep

In a picture  —  I love this Grannie’s arms and hands, sheltering, supporting, loving, being there with all she can
