Happy Wednesday!!

Hello all my sweet friends!!! I hope you all are having a wonderful day today!!
So far my day has been going well.I usually go to the farmers market on Wednesdays with a friend. Today my husband decided to invite his father and step mom,so we ended up going with them instead.I absolutely love going to the market.There are several Amish and Mennonite people that work there.My friend and I have been talking to a Mennonite woman at a stand where I buy raw milk.She is a very nice lady. We had some questions about the Mennonite faith and she was happy to answer them.It is`n Old Order,like the Amish faith.It seems to be very Christ centered.She sells those little aprons for the dish soap and also some hand made pillow shams and a few other hand made items.I`m wondering if she would be willing to teach us how to quilt? I would be absolutely thrilled if she agreed!! I think I`m going to ask hr next week.
I`m on the third book in The Heritage Of Lancaster County,by Beverly Lewis and I`m really starting to take an interest in learning more about a simple life.
Thank you all for your prayers for my friend`s aunt. She is still in a coma.They plan on bringing her out of it soon because the swelling seams to be going down.They don`t know how much brain damage she has yet though.They don`t even know if he can breath on her own or not.Much prayer is still needed for her and her family.
My excises program is still going well.I am thrilled about it and praising God for His strength that is carrying me through this journey:)I woke up very early yesterday morning so I could work out before I got the kids up.Then hubby and I headed to the gym and worked out some more.I`m actually finding exercise fun.Monday will be 3 weeks since I started this program.I`ve been working out 6 days a week.This is the most consistent I have ever been my entire life with exercise.This is how I know t is not of my own strength,but from God.I will keep you guys posted on the progress I make.So far I have lost about 6 pounds.Woo hoo!!!!
Well I`m off to do some laundry(oh joy) and then some reading before the kids get home.Bye for now!!!

You go girl! 6lbs wow! I am still praying for your friends aunt. Thanks for keeping us up to date on her. I dont ever get to go to a farmers market except in the summer the closest one is about an hr away. We do have a small local one that opens in summer though. I love to get the fresh homegrown veggies! Have a blessed Friday. Karen

I finally tried your garlic knots recipe. It was pretty good. Will take some practice though getting them all the same size :)

Hi Toni!
Thanks for stopping by and following my blog! I'm new to blogging and although I found it fun to set up my blog, I couldn't find any other blogs of interest to visit. And then, I stumbled across one of the blogs I follow and found all these other blogs by wonderful women of faith! I am so excited! Not only are all of you women talented and creative, you're overflowing with love for the Lord! I admire you for that, Toni and I love reading your blog! It's so heartwarming and filled with joy. I like to surround myself with positive, happy people and I've found some right here in blogland! Oh, and I want to say congratulations on your exercising! I've gotten to love it, too. It can be so much fun! Take care and God bless!
Hugs and Love,
