Here is one of my Sunflowers I grew! Funny thing about this is I planted a whole package of seeds and I only got these two big ones!! It was either the birds or the squirrels or chipmunks!! Or better yet probably all of them!!

 I plant these so I can dry them out!! They are so cool after they dry but the birds usually get them before I can bring them in! I have to dry them outside first darn it!!

But I am dreaming of drying them here at this place!!

And of drying apples too!!

And maybe churning some butter too!

 I am also dreaming of living in this house!! This house was built by my husband Sim's Great-Great Grandfather named Simon!! There is a chance this house may go on the market!! We are praying and if it does we would love to buy it!! It is in Gods hands. I would appreciate prayers!! This house is in the same town we live in!! I have always wanted to live in a farm house! This would be the first house Sim and I bought together!! I could grow so many Sunflowers on this land and even if the birds did get to them I would still have some!! LOL There is the cutest little out building just for selling veges and whatever you want!! And a big barn and other out buildings! This dream is so much more of a reality than the Antique Shoppe I was dreaming of!! I looked back at those pics and realized this house and barn and outbuildings match that shoppe alot!! This property has more outbuildings than you can imagine! Wonder if God might have other plans!!

And this cute little outbuilding will be perfect for my Etsy items and projects!!

And these Mums are in my yard now reminding me of the beauty of Fall and telling me once again it's ok to dream. But when you give everything to God He can surprise you!!  His beauty is everywhere!!
XO Fran.

I really believe that God is in control of our lives. .

I pray if this is the next step, the house doors will open and welcome you in.

Homesteading is the word that comes to mind. Setting down roots, not in sand but on solid ground.

Lord, we come to you in agreement that your will, will be done. Protect them Lord is this is not in your plan, and bless them in abundance if it is! You are good, all the time and we love you and praise you for new beginnings in your perfect will and plan for our lives.
In Jesus name we pray. The name above all names.

Your sunflowers are gorgeous!! I really want to plant them along my fence line but most of it is shady.

I can seeing why you're dreaming! The home and land is beautiful!! But yes, God will put you where He wants you and needs you. I really hope that's where He wants you, hehe! Praying for you and with you girl!
