Goat Kids, Young Living Essential Oils, and Flu

It has been life has been busy. Don't I always start with that? I know, I know, we are all sick of the "I am sooooo busy" posts and such. But anyway, I'll just start with what I have been up to.

Last month I did a baby session which went AWESOME and got some adorable pictures. (Which reminds me I need to go edit the rest of that session this week before it gets any later!!) Isn't she the cutest thing? :D

The other week back I decided I would start up my schedule and STICK TO IT...well a little after that, kid goats were born. They kept coming and coming- which wasn't a bad thing per se, except the fact I ended up having to bottle feed them for many reasons... Nursed one back to health after it almost died, two were abandoned by their mother, and one's mother didn't get  milk in, etc....It was crazy. I wasn't getting much sleep taking care of them all. Well, some died, some had to be put was soo sad, but now two are healthy, lively and happy and I still battle-feed them.
Finally last week, I was getting good amount o sleep and ready to start this schedule I have been putting off. So started it I did...Went as planned for one day and the next day I started coming down with something...not just "something", but the flu of all things, annnd I got a fever too. It was terrible. I was in bed most of the day and then some. So now I am pretty much better (just a lingering cough) and I am starting this schedule again. One day now it has gone great! Praying it actually finally stick from now on!!

I am still working at the post office in the mornings and it has been going well. Nice to get money and start actually saving up. I am only going to be at this job until the Spring. My neighbour works with me and she is going to leave to get a "better job" to be able to buy a car, etc. She is going to be baby-sitting at peoples' houses (or a family's house), which I know she'll be good at since she's been baby sitting and her sisters have been since she was very little and she has her practice in for sure....I am slightly jealous about that actually...But I help her out with kids she babysits at home sometimes and I usually end up with a headache for some reason. ;) Children apparently don't know what the word 'quiet' means...but I think we all knew that, didn't we?

I got my first shipment of essential oils this week from Young Living and am sooo excited!! My Dad is not convinced of using oils, but the only way to know if they work is to test them out, right?!?! ;)

I also started a new Food Blog! Click here to view. :)

"I have written unto you, young men, because ye are strong, and the word of God abideth in you, and ye have overcome the wicked one. Love not the world, neither the things that are in the world. If any man love the world, the love of the Father is not in him. For all that is in the world, the lust of the flesh, and the lust of the eyes, and the pride of life, is not of the Father, but is of the world. And the world passeth away, and the lust thereof: but he that doeth the will of God abideth for ever." ~1 John 2:14-17

Which reminded me of a quote by Samuel Rutherford from his 'Quaint Sermons' on Philippians 3:8:
"To Hell with all other things that do not help me serve Christ!"

So, here's to blessed rest of this week. God bless you all and stay strong in the Lord!! <3
