We Lost King Today

"King" the White Rock Rooster

We were saddened today to find King dead in a pen with several roosters.  The culprit J.R. had to go.  I've secluded him in a makeshift jail for months.  I even gave him his own flock of hens.  Nothing ever seemed to work.  He was just crazy mean to other chickens be they hen or rooster.  He put my precious "Spot's" eye out and almost took the other out.  He killed the young rooster of King's and now he has killed "King".  He had to go.

The Old Shack & Hand Pump

Good morning!  Do you have favorite spots from homes in the past?  Spots that just steal your heart?  I do and this little shack that was hand built by a family member who has now gone on to Heaven is just one of those.  Join me as I share the old shack and hand pump...

Casper and the Chickens

Casper, the dirty Great Pyrenees, King the White Rock Rooster, Pat The Hammer (named by my grandson) and Cora Lee

I think it's time to show these wonderful creatures.  It's been awhile since I've shown them.  The weather was pretty and a few ventured out the gate to eat.  Come on out as we sit and watch the backyard animals.....

Authentic Haven Brand Moo Poo Tea & Hibiscus House Roses

I've been blessed with some very good, well excellent old garden roses.  I've lost some due to hot weather then there are some that just thrive no matter what happens.  I did lose four of my favorite roses from the heat and dry conditions we had here in South Carolina last year.  Today I want to tell you a little bit about Authentic Haven Brand Moo Poo Tea and how it works with my roses.  I should say show you what it does for them.  Please come on out to the rose gardens with me if you will.

Hey, Let's Take a Walk to See What's Blooming!

Yellow Jasmine our South Carolina State Flower.  It is very pretty and smells so good.  I saw this while taking a walk on a pretty morning last week.  I thought I'd share some of the naturally beautiful things in Spring.

He is not here!

Jerusalem Tomb of the Garden

He is not here, He has risen, just as He said.  Come and see the place where He lay.
Matthew 28:6

Jesus Christ on the Cross "Good Friday"

2 Corinthians 5:21New International Version (NIV)

21 God made him who had no sin to be sin[a] for us, so that in him we might become the righteousness of God.

Jesus Praying

Matthew 26:38-42 (New King James Version)
Then He said to them, “My soul is exceedingly sorrowful, even to death. Stay here and watch with Me.” He went a little farther and fell on His face, and prayed, saying, “O My Father, if it is possible, let this cup pass from Me; nevertheless, not as I will, but as You will.” Then He came to the disciples and found them sleeping, and said to Peter, “What! Could you not watch with Me one hour? Watch and pray, lest you enter into temptation. The spirit indeed is willing, but the flesh is weak.” Again, a second time, He went away and prayed, saying, “O My Father, if this cup cannot pass away from Me unless I drink it, Your will be done.”
