Here is a comment just received:
:::While milk ( whole not powereded) as many have tried to politely point out to you for so long is healthier.... While we are so glad you are blessed with a cow, and the Lord is good. While we are glad you are no longer doing the powered milk, etc please stop bragging of the milk in front of many who don't have that right now. Be thou humble , and blessed. Shared in love, A sister in Christ:::
First off, I should apologize maybe ?? for trying to find recipes and ways to use up the milk we have?
Maybe I should apologize for my husband, who got an idea one day to check some farm market type sites, and who happened upon a cow for sale, and who put thought and prayer into the purchase and subsequently bought said cow?
I shouldn't, I suppose share the recipes we have found and others have directed us to, for ways to use our fresh milk...or your store-bought milk as well...to extend our food budget and do more from scratch?
This blog shares a lot of things. we try to make things useful, but it's also a chronicle of our days, our sharing with family and friends, etc. It is US and how we live day to day.
Now, we have been blessed with a cow, and with that comes milk. I still, by the way, have a stock of powdered milk and during our dry time we will put it to use, along with the fresh I am putting up in the freezer. The fresh milk does not compare to store-bought milk, and that is still a purchase I will not make. Yes, I am well aware of the blessing we have in fresh, healthy whole milk. I never said I wasn't.
In addition to this latest blessing, this blog also shares about our journey and blessings in being debt free....if I create animosity or jealousy ?? over sharing that, shall I apologize for that as well because some who visit here are not debt-free? We have bills, and we have plenty we could do without that would be considered excess to others, but we are blessed nonetheless for limiting what we have to the point we are now, and I blog about that.
I share about homeschooling, and certainly not everyone who visits chooses to follow a homeschooling life. Still, it is what we do and I share about it.
I'm not sure I understand the comment shared. I have shared about having the cow, and about having far more milk than we knew what to do with. I have given countless gallons away to neighbors, and even paid for our feed by selling a few gallons. I am searching out ways we can put the abundance to use here, such as butter, yogurt, and the cheeses we are learning to make. I feel totally blessed, and I feel it is perfectly alright to share what we are learning and doing here, with the milk as well as everything else we do. I do not feel I have been 'bragging' at all, and don't feel that the comment was shared 'in love' at all. It was a comment out of jealousy as far as I can see, and to that I feel I owe no apology.
Folks blog for various reasons. Should a blog entry offend someone, hurt someone's feelings, even bring encouragement, it is not the fault or purpose of those doing the blogging, but is left for the emotions of the visitor. I will apologize for the impression you took away that I was bragging, but if there's more than that, you'll simply have to spell it out in short words for me because I'm lost.
