A reader sent me the kindest note. Brought tear to my eyes. Thank you for taking the time to write it, Janet.
Patrice, once again I am indebted to you and your blog. Not just for the Cream Puffs (though I'm sure they are delicious), but for everything. Simply everything. As I log in to my PC daily I am assaulted with BAD NEWS from every angle, and I have my PC set this way so I can catch every sordid detail and remain 'on top of things' although I no longer know why this is important.
Well, I must tell you that I looked over the wealth of international bad news and bad lies waiting for me just now and I did what any sane person would do.... I jumped on over to your blog because I knew I would find a small corner of Eden. Rest for the soul. In the midst of all the worldly tremors and frights, we all need a good dose true daily life as God intended! I am comforted and uplifted to see photos of your new birthday calf (Congrats to both of you!) and your garden and canning jars and the milking stall. Thank you for providing a little bit of Heaven here on earth for us, especially in these days ahead.
As I write this, tomorrow is 9/11, and I will be spending at least some of it in prayer for our nation and what is ahead of all of us. As Elvis Presley once sang "I know not what the future holds, but I know Who holds the future, it's a secret known only to Him."
