What you do in your house is worth as much as if you did it up in heaven for our Lord God. We should accustom ourselves to think of our position and work as sacred and well-pleasing to God, not on account of the position and work, but on account of the word and faith from which the obedience and the work flow. ~ Martin Luther

Going Visiting

Good friends make life so pleasant and I've recently found a few more.

It started with a free bed on the side of the road which I happily and thankfully snatched up.

I returned with a strawberry rhubarb crisp in order to thank them for their kindness (and, just because, I included an invite to the book exchange.)

Turns out, we have quite a lot in common.

Thus, a friendship was born.

They have just the sweetest girls. I can always tell the quality of the parents by the quality of their teens.

We enjoyed a wonderfully fun day at their house, admiring gardens (and BEAUTIFUL garlic-just LOOK!),

exploring, laughing, wading, sheep petting, admiring, and getting to know one another.

By the end, we were happily exhausted.

It was a GOOD day.

How wonderful to make new friends especially so close to you!! What type of sheep? If you find that they would love to share sheep info I would be all ears!!

I must admit I am too in garlic envy! Haven't grown any since we moved up here and we lived in a garlic growing area in OH!!

That is so wonderful that a simple exchange between strangers has started a new friendship! The kids are all so cute, but the baby with the flower behind her ear in the last photo...soooo sweet!
