Welcome to the Homestead Blog Hop!

It’s Blog Hop day again!

For some reason my site had a glitch. I pasted the blog hop at the correct time, but made a misspelling, and gave the hop the wrong number. Well…that just seemed to mess everything up in terms of my permalinks.

So I’m deleting the post and redoing it. Hopefully this will now function like it should. ?‍♀️

I hope you are enjoying your summer! ? We have been enjoying our wild berries, still doing garden prep, and have been thankful this week because we got a good rain! We also had sickness run through our family, and knock the boys down for several days.  It may sound funny to say, but I enjoyed helping them during their sick time.  We are so scattered these days that the sickness forced us to actually stay home together.  But I don’t wish for more sicknesses, that’s for sure! Today on the hop I am sharing probably my most useful topic.  Our family and others have used this remedy time after time, and you will too once you find out how easy and effective it is. Here’s a sneak peek into what will be on the hop.

Remember…no matter what your day or week looks like, God’s mercies are every morning. That’s a promise we all need!  

Through the LORD’s mercies we are not consumed, Because His compassions fail not. They are new every morning; Great is Your faithfulness. “The LORD is my portion,” says my soul, “Therefore I hope in Him!”

Lamentations 3:22-24 NKJV

Now on to the Hop

Homestead Blog Hop will take place every Wednesday and is for all things homesteading: real food recipes, farm animals, crafts, DIY, how-to’s, gardening, anything from-scratch, natural home/health, self-sufficiency, self-reliance, natural remedies, essential oils, & more! Basically anything related to homesteading.
