I am getting excited and nervous all at one time ,especially now that the packing has begun and it has really begun to sink in that I am moving. I am leaving on Saturday and moving into Mountain View on Sunday and then beginning my new work on Monday.
I am spending lots of time with my dogs right now and enjoying every moment of it. On Sunday Ruth Ann took pictures of my dogs and I. It was more difficult than other years because Matilda is in heat and Duke couldn't understand why he couldn't spend time with her. We spent an hour trying to get a couple good pictures and we did succeed getting a few good ones.
Two weeks ago my parents had a farewell party for me and a lot of my friends came out and it was so nice to see them all together and being able to say one last goodbye. I got lots and lots of cards that were such an encouragement to me and I put them in a picture book and now I am going to take them along and look at them whenever I please.
That same week on Sunday the church had a commissioning service for me. It was so nice and I wasn't even nervous when I stood up to give the speech ,I was so glad that I sat the whole way at the front so I couldn't see who was all behind me until I got up to talk. Then they had the message and then our Bishop asked me some questions then I kneeled down and our 5 ministers laid their hands on me and prayed for me and my journey down in VA.
This past week was my last week working at the shop and I cleaned up the entire bottom of the shop it was a lot of work because it was especially bad this year but it was so worth it because it is now all clean and dad will be able to find all the parts when I am gone. I will very miss working here and also miss all our very nice customers.
I hope you all have a blessed week.

I was away over the weekend and came home to see that Brittany Maynard had ended her own life because she had a stage 4 brain tumor. She had ended her life via pills on Saturday with her husband and mother by her side.
Now the reason I believe this is wrong is because I believe in doing this you are taking your life out of God's hands and saying "this is my life, my body and may do as I please with it" , and in a sense you are telling God you know better than him when it is your time to go. He created us and knows better than anyone what we can handle in life and if he sees that you can handle cancer he will give you the courage, grace, and strength you need to get through it every step of the way.
1 Corinthians 6:19-20
Do you not know that your bodies are temples of the Holy Spirit, who is in you, whom you have received from God? You are not your own; you were bought at a price. Therefore honor God with your bodies.You may say that I have no experience in this area. No, I haven't experienced it first hand ,but I have had 3 aunts and an uncle that went through cancer and no it wasn't painless and nothing in life will ever be ,but they had God to lean on every step of the way and I believe that the reward of Heaven makes all the pain and suffering so worth it. To be able to see and live with Jesus every day makes every step and trial here on earth worth it all!!!
And you if you do choose the route to end your life you may never know in what way God could have used you later on in your days on this earth ,because God has a plan and a purpose for each one of us on this earth and he desires greatly to have each one in Heaven with him.
There is a lot more I could say on this subject but I think I will leave it there for now but I may touch on it more later.

On Sunday we headed home at 8:00 so we could be home by 12:30 so we would be home for dinner. Then we had the viewing the viewings were from 2-4 and 6-8. It was so nice to see all the people that came through and to hang out with my cousins again. The funeral was on Monday it was a very nice funeral my grandma was a very sweet compassionate lady. She looked so peaceful.
Well I hope you all have a good week!!

The next morning we ate breakfast at the motel then we headed out to Boston we arrived in Boston at 11:30 then we drove around quite a bit and we found the Paul Revere house and we couldn't park so we went and found the trolley where we could hop on and off all day long and still see all the hot spots. We rode around and saw the entire Boston :)!! Then it was time for supper and we wanted to eat on the pier so there was a restaurant called the No Name Restaurant it was SO good Ruth Ann and I got dishes that had several types of fish on and dad got shrimp, mom got lobster, and Rachel got a cheeseburger. Best meal I have had in awhile. After we left there we went and checked into our motel.
As some of you may know about a month ago I got all four of my wisdom teeth pulled well while we were on vacation the one side of my mouth started hurting so I just took pain meds but on Sat. it started swelling and then on Sunday morning it was swollen so bad I couldn't close my mouth at all. So since we didn't have any of my pain meds along we decided to head for home a day early so I could go see the doctor on Mon. So we traveled home on Sun. and then on Mon, I went to the oral surgeon and he cleaned out the hole and prescribed some antibiotics. Now to Heal :)
Hope you all have a good day it is raining here today!!

THE WONDER OF WONDERS AS SHE LOOKED ON HIS FACE
THAT THIS LITTLE BOY SPOKE THE WORLDS IN THEIR PLACE
THE STARS AND THE MOON, SHINNING BRIGHTLY ON THEM
THE EARTH AND THE SUN WERE CREATED BY HIM
THE WONDER OF WONDERS AS SHE HEARD HIS SMALL CRY
THAT THIS VOICE HAD THUNDERED ON MOUNT SINAI
THE HAND THAT SHE HELD SO TENDERLY
HAD MADE A DRY PATH THRU THE MIGHTY RED SEA
THE WONDER OF WONDERS AS SHE LOOKED DOWN AND SMILED
THAT HE WAS HER MAKER AS WELL AS HER CHILD
HE CREATED THE WOMB THAT HAD GIVEN HIM BIRTH
HE WAS GOD INCARNATE COME DOWN TO THE EARTH.
THE WONDER OF WONDERS OH HOW COULD IT BE
THAT GOD BECAME FLESH AND WAS GIVEN FOR ME
THE ALMIGHTY CAME DOWN AND WALKED AMONG MEN
THE WONDER OF WONDERS HE DIED FOR MY SIN

My dad got some one to help him take tractors apart. It is a very nice set up because he takes them to his house two at a time and then when he his done he brings all the parts back and we put them away then we load two more up and he takes them to his house. It takes him about a week to do two right now but as he gets better at it I think it will go faster for him.
Ruth Ann's dog Lucy went into heat about 10 days ago so we took her to the breeder on Friday last week and hopefully she gets bred this time. The people that had her before tried to breed her once or twice and never were successful so hopefully this time we can get her.
On Wednesday one of the ladies I sold a puppy to two years ago brought the puppy back for me to babysit for a couple days. I love when people bring their puppies back for me to see. She is such a beautiful puppy. She has her long beautiful hair and lots of feathers on her legs. She is a replica of her mother she is very dark colored.
Well I hope ya'll have a good week!!! I am recovering from surgery right now. I got all 4 of my wisdom teeth out on Monday via oral surgery. So now the next couple of days I have off but not because I want to. Thank you to all my friends for the encouragement and also to my friend Emily for the flowers :).

On August 29, 2011 this beautiful girl and her littermates were born. But they weren't born at my house they were born at New Holland Vet via c-section after the surgery I brought my first litter of puppies home to raise. And after months of reading books and pouring over the internet I thought I knew alot about raising puppies well boy was I in for a shock. They made me grow up really quick and gave me lots of experience and happiness and tears :).
I knew I was going to keep one of the puppies and it took me weeks till I picked out Matilda and I am so happy I did I couldn't ask for a better dog, oh sure she has her quirks and makes me upset at times , but I wouldn't trade her for anything. She makes me smile at her antics and her very expressive face and I love how protective she is of me and her puppies. And I can't believe she turned 3 already where did the time go? Ok I am done being sappy :) HAPPY BIRTHDAY MATILDA!!!!!

One of the key reasons people deal with anxiety is worry and worry comes from when we are focused on the world and since the world is full of sin and things going wrong we get scared and feel insecure. If all the people in the world (including me) would constantly trust God and know that he has a plan and a purpose for our lives ,and that he has us all in the palm of his hand we would no longer have the problem of worry and then our anxiety would fade away!!
Here is an article that was very helpful to me it goes over the points of dealing with worry and anxiety. Trust me I do not have this area in my life totally taken care of I still deal with it but learning to pray about it and trusting God with every aspect of my life (which is a day-to-day thing as well) has definitely helped!!
Here is the article and the web address!! http://christianity.about.com/od/topicalbiblestudies/a/anxiety.htm
Dealing with Anxiety and WorryWarren Mueller studies the keys in God's Word to overcoming your struggles with anxiety and worry.
Anxiety (Worry)Life is full of many concerns stemming from the absence of certainty and control over our future. While we can never be completely free from worry, the Bible shows us how to minimize worry and anxiety in our lives. Philippians 4:6-7 says do not worry about anything, but with prayer and supplication with thanksgiving make your requests known to God and then the peace of God will guard your hearts and minds in Christ Jesus.
Pray About Life's WorriesBelievers are commanded to pray about life's worries. These prayers are to be more than requests for favorable answers. They are to include thanksgiving and praise along with the needs. Praying in this way reminds us of the many blessings God continually gives us whether we ask or not. This reminds us of God's great love for us and that He knows and does what is best for us.
A Sense of Security in JesusWorry is proportional to our sense of security. When life is going as planned and we feel safe in our life routines, then worries subside. Likewise, worry increases when we feel threatened, insecure or are overly focused on and committed to some result. 1 Peter 5:7 says cast your cares upon Jesus because He cares for you. The practice of believers is to take our worries to Jesus in prayer and leave them with Him. This reinforces our dependence on, and faith in Jesus.
Recognize a Wrong FocusWorries increase when we become focused on the things of this world. Jesus said the treasures of this world are subject to decay and can be taken away but heavenly treasures are secure (Matthew 6:19). Therefore, set your priorities on God and not on money (Matthew 6:24). Man worries about such things as having food and clothes but is given life by God. God provides life, without which the concerns of life are meaningless.
Worry can cause ulcers and mental problems that can have destructive health effects that shorten life. No amount of worry will add even one hour to one's life (Matthew 6:27). Therefore, why worry? The Bible teaches that we should deal with each day's problems when they occur and not be obsessed with future concerns that may not happen (Matthew 6:34).
Focus on JesusIn Luke 10:38-42, Jesus visits the house of the sisters Martha and Mary. Martha was busy with many details regarding making Jesus and his disciples comfortable. Mary, on the other hand, was sitting at the feet of Jesus listening to what he said. Martha complained to Jesus that Mary should be busy helping but Jesus told Martha that "…you are worried and anxious about many things, but only one thing is needed. Mary has chosen what is better and it will not be taken away from her." (Luke 10:41-42)
What is this one thing that freed Mary from the business and worries experienced by her sister? Mary chose to focus on Jesus, listen to Him and ignore the immediate demands of hospitality. I do not believe that Mary was being irresponsible, rather she wanted to experience and learn from Jesus first and later, when He was done speaking, she would fulfill her duties. Mary had her priorities straight. Put God first and He will free us from worries and take care of the rest of our concerns.

This has been on my mind a lot lately probably because I am moving away from home to go into mission work ,but not only that but because it has been paining my heart to see the Christian youth of today walk away from everything they have ever known and been taught since they were young and go the opposite direction saying that God was telling them to walk away from their faith. Oh if only they would know the sadness and regret that will fill them when they stand in front of the Lord and he says "I never knew you" they may not care now , but I guarantee they will care when Judgment day comes.
I think this subject is so important to me because I haven't always been the Christian I should have been and have done some things in my youth (even though I am still youth) that I regret very much but then I came to the realization one day ( a couple years ago) that if I had died that day I would not have gone to the wonderful eternal home I had been anticipating going to. That is the day I gave my life over to Christ totally and completely and told him "God this is no longer my life it is yours you can do as you please with it and me" And that is total surrender and when that happens God will move. It didn't happen instantly but I grew closer to God and as that happened I felt called to "go" and serve God elsewhere and I had the distinct feeling I was no longer where God wanted me.
Of course the process was much slower than that :) I had no idea where God wanted me to go ,but I figured in his good time he would show me and he has, it was amazing and funny to watch how God pushed me in the direction he wanted me to go!! I can honestly say I feel I am at the place as far as where I am (location wise) is where God wants me. It was by no means an easy road and now that I can finally see the end of all the very hard decisions as far as preparing my heart and mind to leave home and telling my dad are over I can honestly say I am now sitting back and enjoying the ride and watching God work.
Well that is maybe more than you wanted to know ,but I felt led to share my heart. Hopefully it has encouraged or inspired someone!! All Glory goes to God!!!

Well this week has been a very exciting and profitable week. I got my acceptance letter from Mountain View and John called me as well and told me that he is sending my letter off but he wanted to personally tell me that I was accepted and wondered if I had any questions. I will probably be moving Lord willing in mid November. He is hoping it doesn't go into December but he can't tell this far ahead when all the people are going to be leaving. It is going to be really exciting because the month after I come they will probably be moving into the new girls dorm that they are in the process of building. So that is definitely something to look forward to!!
The due date for the puppies is coming up here very rapidly and I am starting to get momma and the kennel ready for delivery. She is starting to slow down but her eating is still very good so we are still on schedule. Tomorrow it is 3 weeks exactly to her due date so we shall see if she goes early or late this time!! I will let ya'll know when they are born. But if you know of anyone who want a golden puppy send them my way :).
I went out to breakfast with a friend from school on Saturday and it was so nice to catch up again and see how she was doing. She is going to be moving to Bradford County to teach school for this coming school term. So that was something her and I could relate to because we will both be away from our families for a long period of time!!! But it is an exciting adventure and I believe we will both learn a lot from our time away and hopefully grow spiritually.
Well I hope you all have a good week and hopefully have a smile on your face!! I know this saying is so cliché but SMILE GOD LOVES YOU!!!

And I am planning Lord willing to move down to Virginia for a term of service. I am planning to go for a year ,but it will probably turn out to be a year and a half. I am planning on leaving in November. I don't know what dad is planning on doing as far as the business for right now he and mom are going to be keeping it afloat by themselves ,but I think come summer he will need to hire someone. I am not positive what I am going to be doing , but as it sounded I am going to be in the kitchen and those of you that know me well will smile because you know I am NOT a good cook and I burn things a lot :) but I think with time it will come easier.
So those are some of the changes that have been going on around here. I have been staying very busy since we got back from vacation. I already have the puppies advertised and now have 2 people on the waiting list :) which is very nice. This litter is really special to me because it may be my last one forever I kind of doubt it because I love puppies but I never know what may come up in the year that I am gone. Ruth Ann is planning to breed her dog Lucy next month and I am really happy about that because then I will be able to see them before I leave.
It was really funny I was on the phone with one of my dog contact people (who actually happens to own Duke's dad) and I had talked to her numerous times before and well this time we actually got into a deep conversation and when I told her I owned one of her dog's children she was like ok so we probably saw him when I was at your house and I was like oh you know me and she said oh yes I have known you since you were a baby. Here her and her husband used to go to our church. (talk about funny).
Well it is pouring down rain here this evening so I am going to go listen to it rain :) Until Next time.

A week ago a senior class from Terre Hill were down in Grenada and one of their fellow classmates drowned. That has hit the senior classes really hard especially the one down there because they had a classmate that stayed home because he had doctors orders to stay home because he is in the last stages of bone cancer. If you think of them pray for them as the funeral is today.
Yesterday was a difficult day for me because Duke was at the vet all day having "surgery" getting his hip certified and when I went to pick him up he was very loopy he looked very worn out and tired. And while I was there I gave them the paperwork of one of the puppies that is coming back just to make sure that what the people say is wrong with it that ,that is for sure the problem.
And I also sold my goats yesterday which was very hard for me because I had raised them since they were three months old. I miss them already their little bleeting sounds and soft noses. But God has a reason for everything even though we don't understand it and I wouldn't give up the fun and experience I got from having them.
Well hope you all have a blessed day and don't get wet :)!!

field and am unable to keep them. Thumper (the male) (he is castrated) is very laid back and such a sweetheart and I love him to bits! Flower (the female) would be known as "Quiet-till-known" she can be a little jumpy at first but is such a sweetheart once she knows you!
I have had them since they are three months old and they are half siblings and have been together since birth so they will stay together I will NOT sell them separately. I am asking $300 OBO. Call me only if you are truly interested in the goats. Thanks (717) 271-4563
