Hey Guys! Happy Monday of a new year! Is that excting? Fresh and new? I think so too. I really do. I am excited about what God is going to do for us here at Along the Dirt Road this year. I have been giving it serious thought and prayer. He and I have been looking it over together, and I think that moving forward with this blog is the thing to do. You all are so gracious to drop by for a bit. I love that. I love to share the love of God and family with you.
So today…to get us started…I am going to share a little tid bit with you. Here it is:
If you struggle with the gloom of winter…houseplants help. I know. Rocket Science.
You may say, “Kel…I do not have a green thumb.” Don’t worry, sweet Dirt Roader. There are plants out there…made for those with the most black thumbs of all. They are called succulents. They are everywhere. Wal-Mart would love to sell you one. They require little care and they put a tad of green in your world…when everything else is brown and gray.
It is my secret for combating the after Christmas blues. I organize our home and tend my houseplants until spring. I know. I am a real wild woman. lol! It does help though. A bit of green in the house perks my spirit. That…and my faux lemons. I need to get those out. (If you are a lover of the long, cold, winter…you already think that I am crazy.) It’s not really that I despise winter. I love the coziness that comes with it. It’s just that I am a child of the summer. I love the growing things.
That brings us back to this blog. May it grow and stretch and cause us to do the very same. The main reason that I am in this…is just in case someone who needs a tad of hope..happens by. I want to be here…holding the love of Christ out to them. It may be wrapped in a post about soup. It may be wrapped in a post about farm chores or new baby calves. It may be in a post about crafting or cleaning. Whatever we do here this year, I want the love of Christ to be at the very center. Along the Dirt Road is a place of fresh and new. A place about growth and birth. I am so glad that you are here.
Love from the Farmhouse,
Hello 🙂 glad to hear you are going to continue to be with us . As one of my favorite movies says in it ” all the nothing’s and little something’s mean more than all the big things sometimes ” . So whether it’s a cooking tip or gardening , I always enjoy the read here .
It is a new year. I never make resolutions , I figure if I need to change or change something I shouldn’t wait until the first of each new year to begin. Each day is new start again each day with a new hope .
Well don’t know if you remember my poor house plant story, I miss a plant but not sure if one would survive four little hands yet. ( one sweet little girl picked my Christmas tree leaf garland to a sorry state – we are gonna send her to school with a sign that simply says …sorry. Lol!
Glad your still blogging !
Carol…shebwill fit right in. I love it! ❤️ Thank you.
