Hospitality, Friendship, Encouragement

We had a nice weekend, I hope you did, too. 

Friday, Tim had an inspection and then he and I went to a local cafe (Amish owned) and had lunch.  

We were chatting about a conversation I'd had with of our our daughters, which he found funny, so he was texting her to tease her.

He's still so handsome!

I've been reading lite fiction to counter all the stress of our nation right now.  I read The Enchanted Barn, last weekend and started The Substitute Guest at the end of the week.  Didn't read much this weekend but this is my favorite Grace Livingston Hill book.

I like to keep my hands busy so I started a new cowl in soft greys, pinks, and red.

I couldn't watch the impeachment trial in the Senate this past week, though I kept up with it and watched clips. It makes me sick to see the hatred people have for 45. It's based on lies and it's irrational.  Its shocking to see that someone who comes from outside politics is the one who really does things for the people of our nation and politicians from both parties don't like him for it.  They want to destroy him because he knows their secrets.

We've really become awakened to the fact that our politicians don't really serve us, they serve those who put them in office (financially) and they serve themselves.  So much of foreign aid money gets laundered back to them.  It's so corrupt, I'm not sure how it could be fixed.

Maybe if we actually ran the country according to the Constitution we might actually get serve the people of our great nation.

I will go on record here to say that I thought Trumps lawyers did a great job. They didn't have lie or manipulated information.  They didn't have to rely on hearsay.  They just showed the full truth.  The media has been so bad in manipulating the narrative, by only showing clips of statements 45 made.  For the first time many people actually got to see the whole of speeches etc, that 45 gave and prove that the media had worked to give the impression of something else.

We need to continue to pray for our nation.  I believe that God is not done with us yet.  I also know that all over our nation are freedom loving, peaceful supporters of the president. 

I hope that whatever your weather is like, you are safe, well, and warm.  Our friends in Texas are really in a cold weather pattern!

Let's make this a good week, and encourage one another, and as I heard someone say recently, "Let's not be our brothers' keeper, let's be our brothers' brother."

Sounds like a very nice Valentines week-end for you. I have found it very helpful to double check much of what is said about politics especially when it comes to#45. I will probably do this from here on out.

We had a cold weekend here in Iowa. Negative temperatures and more to come with lots of snow on the ground. I didn't watch the trial, I just couldn't do it. I do a lot of praying, and I agree, I don't think God is done with us yet!

Like you, I couldn't watch until I watched the clips after I knew the outcome.

Once upon a time, long, long time ago, I heard a sermon on the who is our keeper question. I believe that God and He alone is our Keeper.
Woe be unto anyone who has me as their keeper. They are in great big trouble.


  I hope you all had a wonderful weekend. We spent Saturday, doing things around the house, and then we swam. Kyle and Sarah left after that...
