Count Your Blessings Monday!!

Here is an opportunity for you to give thanks unto the Lord for a blessing in your life. If you have a blog, please sign Mr. Linky below and post on your blog. Please link back to this blog and you may use the picture above. If you do not have a blog, leave a comment on this post telling us what you are thankful for and what you are counting as a blessing today. This is a way that we can encourage one another. Many of our blessings we will have pictures of and we can share those as well. I think that many times we forget that it is a blessing to be able to breath, to get out of bed, to hold a baby... Share your blessings with us. They encourage others. We can share so many other things.... special gifts, recipes, let's take the time to share how God has blessed us!!

Today I am thankful that my store is up and running. I had asked on a couple of lists I am on for them to go and check it out. I wanted to see if they thought the navigation was easy, what they thought, etc. One lady went ahead and placed an order and paid for it and it came through wonderfully. I was so tickled. I am still doing a lot of fine tuning and putting all the stock we have in the catalog. I am adding things every day. That has taken quite a bit of time, but once I get the majority in, it will just be maintenance and adding a new item every once in awhile. I am learning how to do it as I go with lots of help. I am grateful for the gentleman who is helping me. He has been very patient and is helping me learn instead of just doing everything. We are praying that this really takes off. We are hoping it will become enough that maybe Michael could stay home. Plus, we could live anywhere and do it. We still want to continue raising our own food and some for others. This is just an extension of that. We are carrying items that we feel good about and help you prepare or preserve whole foods. We are praising the Lord for allowing us to do this.

Morning Marcie! Your storefront is very nice. I especially like the banner of photos across the top. Have a grand Monday!

It is wonderful that you are able to do this! My daughter recently met a nice Christian young man whose family has a farm and raises their own meat and grows their own veggies. They make their own cornmeal and such. We have always been interested in this as it is a much healthier way to eat. Maybe one day I'll be able to purchase something from your store!

Best wishes on your store! As soon as we are settled in our next house, a grain mill is on my list to order from you. I am just plain lazy - I don't want to pack and move it! I know you are excited about the upcoming wedding. I can't believe it is only 2 months away!
