Herb Lady’s Helping the Homeless

Hey, y’all! I sure hope ya had a blessed holiday season with yer family and special friends!

Herb Lady is happy to say she enjoyed a mighty fine Christmas and New Year, with her family and friends.

Now, for Pete’s sake, I can’t figur out why I’m a talkin’ in 3rd person! Ha!

On a serious note, I ain’t been blogging ‘bout herbs lately’ ‘cause I’ve been busying myself helpin’ the homeless in these here parts.

Fer Christmas, we took some goody bags to the homeless. This wasn’t fer necessity, but to let ‘em know they aren’t fergotten. A many of ‘em nearly dropped their purty bag of bread, cookies, and candy, when they saw that there Christmas card just fer them!

Now, we’re also workin’ on the necessities – we’re makin’ toiletry bags fer the homeless. They’re needin’ all kinds of stuff to make ‘em feel good and clean and loved!

We already taken ‘em some crocheted and fleece scarves and hats.

Kevin, a homeless man, gave us his permission to share his story with y’all so you can see that all homeless aren’t addicts, alcoholics, or mentally ill. A lot of people are homeless these days ‘cause they lost their job and ain’t been able to find more work, that’s all.

You can read about Kevin on our ministry site: Putting a Face on Homelessness.

homeless, face, hope, story

We’re also workin’ hard on raisin’ money fer Momma’s Houses. I want to be them there folks’ momma and help get ’em back on track.

We need at least $80,000 to buy our first building. We’re still needin’ $79,928.22 to reach our goal. Our electronic fundraiser ends January 27th – we’re in a hurry ‘cause we don’t want someone else to get the building and because the homeless are out in them there bitter cold streets, a freezin’!

Ya can’t just give ‘em an herb or cup of hot tea, we need to heal their heart and troubles and get ‘em on their feet!

Survival Fair: Sustainable Living

Hey, everbody! Herb Lady’s been busy as a bee working hard (and I DO mean HARD) at festivals and outdoor markets, selling herbs and stuff.

Sustainable livin’ is something the ole Herb Lady has been interested in for a long, long time. I’ve stared at magazines and read and re-read articles about it. I’ve worked hard toward learnin’ more about it so I can someday be self-sustainable.

A local Survival Fair recently popped up in our neck of the woods. I went, and thought you might like to see what it was like!

There’s too many pictures and too much neat stuff to share in this here one post, so I’ll share  more in the next ones. In this one, I’d like to tell ya about the eco-friendly Dome Home….
