I'm still around. . .

I'm up very early today, to get started in the kitchen.  I was up an hour ago, but needed a few cups of coffee to jolt me into work mode.

I have much to do today, and hope to get it done before Hubby gets home.  We have more work to do after he gets home.  I know I am lacking on blog posts, but will make up for it later.  We've been under more stress here at the homestead....


Sunday afternoon, after we investigated a portion of our property, we discovered something.  No wonder our daughter was scared.  She did hear something late at night, and so did the dogs.  They are using our private property (and they know it, as they are driving past a "private property, no trespassing" sign) for their mud bog.   We are not talking just a few feet either.  The Sheriff was called and a report filed, and photographs taken.  It's also possible that these people are coming up to urinate on our property.  A dog tells all here.

God is amazing, so I (we) continue to pray.

Hebrews 11:1-39 - Now faith is the substance of things hoped for, the evidence of things not seen.(KJV)
  
Romans 12:19 King James Version (KJV)
19 Dearly beloved, avenge not yourselves, but rather give place unto wrath: for it is written, Vengeance is mine; I will repay, saith the Lord.

Romans 12:19 Never take your own revenge, beloved, but leave room for the wrath of God, for it is written, "VENGEANCE IS MINE, I WILL REPAY," says the Lord.

I hope that this all comes to a favorable conclusion for you. Just how much space do the idiots need for their 'mud' bog. Maybe, with the evidence you have and the Sheriff's involvement, they will wake up and smell the coffe - and pack their bags and move on.

The fact that they are driving past the private property sign tells us they are either drunk, drinking, just plain trouble makers, harassing us, or all of the above.

How totally immature of them.
Joining with you in prayer.
Thinking long 2x4s with long spikes turned upward buried just a few inches below the soil on your property might stop them from trespassing, at least with their mechanized toys.
God bless.
