Good Morning Friends,  Just wanted to share some photos from the barnyard where we are staying.  These photos will bring lasting memories of a fun vacation, in the dead of winter.  Love this momma goat-aren't here markings just beautiful!
 I love these guys-so very cute.  I think I would love to shear their wool as well and knit lots of sweaters-o.k. I'd give it to my girls and have them knit lots of sweaters.

 The colors here are amazing, even if there are no Aspens.  San Juan island reminds me so much of Maine.

Love his expression.
This morning I received this in my inbox and thought I'd share it with you.  It is referencing my life verse and I  love the encouragement it offers.  Maybe it will encourage you today as well.

SMALL STRAWS IN A SOFT WIND by Marsha Burns -- 10/18/11:
You are My offspring, says the Lord. You belong to Me. The past days, months, or even years of struggle are becoming a thing of the past as I prepare you for this time of new things. Refuse to allow the fears, disappointments and failures of the past to dictate your current course. Allow Me to bring forth a transformation. I will heal the brokenness of the past and give you new hope for the future.
Jeremiah 29:11 For I know the thoughts that I think toward you, says the LORD, thoughts of peace and not of evil, to give you a future and a hope.

Today we are heading to Orcas island; looking forward to exploring there too.  This has been a wonderful place to visit and I'd definitely come back again.  Have a blessed day!  Noreen
