Becky's Farm Life

The simple life, living off God's land, one day at a time.

Thank you for recipes and prayers

Thank you all for the recipes. Yes, I do have a crock pot. I have printed off the recipes you left and Tommielynn is getting to pick out which one’s she wants for dinner, which she loves. They all sound so good. Thank you again.

Yesterday and last night were bad for Tommy. I updated Caring Bridge last night and will update it nightly now. Tommielynn finally accepted the fact that her dad is dying. She broke down last night. We have told her everything, every step of the way. Please say a prayer for her.

Thank you all for your prayers as they get us from day to day. And all your wonderful comments really touch my heart. To know some many people care and are praying for us is a wonderful feeling. Thank you all again. May God bless you all to overflowing.

Very thankful and humbled,

  1. Here are a couple easy and good recipes. I normally make the pie crust for the Chicken Pot Pie but the ones in the store freeze well and taste good. You could even use a can of chicken if you wanted to make it very easy. The Taco Skillet is easy enough for your daughter to make. My husband does not like casseroles but enjoys this one.

    As I was reading your update on Tommy I thought of this U-Tube I saw this week and hoped it would encourage you.
    The Lord is ever-present and promises that His grace is enough. I am praying for you and your family.


    Chicken Pot Pie

    1 can cream of potato soup
    1 can cream of celery soup
    16 oz. Veg-all
    2 c. cooked diced chicken
    1/2 c. milk
    1/4 tsp. thyme or less
    1/2 tsp. pepper (make sure it’s not the coarse pepper or use less)
    Put inbetween 2 crusts and cook until crust browns. Somewhere between 30-45 minutes at 375-400.
    Taco Skillet

    My husband doesn’t care for many casserole dishes but really liked this one when my daughter in love made it.

    1 pound ground beef
    1 can tomato soup (10 3/4 oz)
    1 cup salsa
    1/2 cup water
    8 6″ corn tortillas cut in 1″ pieces
    1 cup shredded cheddar cheese

    Brown beef in skillet, drain grease. Add soup, salsa, water, tortillas & 1/2 of the cheese. Heat to a boil. Cover and cook on low 5 minutes. Top with remaining cheese.

  3. Hi again,

    I just ran across this video that I know will minister to you. He talks about his diagnosis of prostrate cancer and how God used the gospel to minister to His heart. Click on the link below.

  4. We are lifting Tommy, you, and your family up in prayer, Becky. May God comfort you all, strengthen you, and give you peace that passes all understanding. Wish we lived close enough that I could bring supper to you. Sending you lots of love and hugs.

  5. Becky, I am praying for You,Tommy and Tommielynn. I agree with Stacie, I wish we lived close enough that I could bring you supper. God has blessed you with remarkable courage and strength. He has given you the knowledge and ability to not only take care of your family but to also teach us how to take care of our families. And you are doing this while you are dealing with your husband’s illness! May God give you and your family rest and comfort.
    God Bless!

  6. Oh Becky, my heart goes out to you and yours. I can’t imagine the feelings you must all have right now, but you are on my mind and in my prayers. I know there are alot of ladies in the blogging world who feel the same about you. We may not all know each other in real life ~ but your blogging sisters have your back! Lol…

    Lots of prayers for you my friend.
