Silver Sunday

And the words of the Lord are flawless, like silver... Psalm 12:6 NIV

I am thankful to the Lord, my God, for:

- coming home
- a new raised bed finished!
- tomato plants
- overnight rain
- a scissortail flycatcher in the yard
Silver Sunday

My soul yearns, even faints,
    for the courts of the Lord;
my heart and my flesh cry out
    for the living God.
Even the sparrow has found a home,
    and the swallow a nest for herself,
    where she may have her young—
a place near your altar,
    Lord Almighty, my King and my God.
Blessed are those who dwell in your house;
    they are ever praising you.

Water is Life: Week Three of the Self-Reliance Challenge

Welcome back to the Self-Reliance Challenge! I've joined a great group of bloggers who are striving to be more self-reliant. All during the month of May we're sharing our goals, ideas, successes and maybe even some failures. I've linked to all the bloggers at the bottom of this post so you can visit them too.

You'll find my posts for week one and week two here.

Water is life! Here are some tips and tricks for storing and saving water. #selfreliantchallenge

Water is life, so it's one of the most important things on our homestead. Besides the two humans that live here, the animals, birds, garden and even the bees need water to exist. We go through a lot of water here at Oak Hill.

Easy Chili Jam

Easy Chili Jam, a sweet and tangy sauce for sandwiches, cream cheese or crackers.

Most of us have something growing in the garden by now, but harvest still seems a long way off. While I'm waiting and pulling weeds and nurturing the plants in my raised beds, I collect recipes of things I want to make when harvest-time is finally here.
