Image Spotlight: Mary Forrester (MaryE)
By Sharon Brown on December 6, 2010

I have a lovely friend who inspires me with every word she writes. She paints pictures with her words and takes us on trips through sunrises and snowfalls. More than likely she'll take you for a ride on the back of her horse if you ask. Let's go to Oregon for a little while; she's waiting there for us.

Beauty that is more than skin deep is what I have long recognized as being evident in Mary. This article really demonstrates that wonderfully.

Thank you, Zany. The readers who visit your jigsaw puzzle forum will recognize the barn that you made into a puzzle.

Thanks Sharon for this spotlight!

Mary, what a great tale to tell. You have led a kind and interesting life which seems to be just beginning. I really enjoy your posts and now things kind of fit together. Thanks for sharing with us. I love the little lambs....
No, wait, it can't be! Mary had a little lamb!
Great read.

I was going to entitle the article: Mary Had a Little Lamb

I was afraid Nap would disown me.

That IS pretty cute! Mary had a little lamb. I hadn't thought about that. I suppose Mary gets that a lot, huh?

Yes, I do. And you know, the little lamb that the famous Mary had, who followed her everywhere, even to school, had to be a bottle baby because that's just what they do. They bond with the person who feeds them and have no idea they are sheep!
Of all the things I've lost, I miss my mind the most.

That is sweet, Mary. I guess they really are little lambs?

Nap and Sharon, we must vow to never again reference Mary having
a little lamb. Well, maybe just once in awhile.

Dear Sharon, a great Article as usual. It is nice to know some more about Mary. As the other day I got a message from Mary asking if I would consider putting a picture of one of my Tree ferns with some snow on it, on the Jigsaw Puzzle cubit as Mary claimed it would make a nice Jigsaw! She was right of course as Brenda agreed with her. Now reading the story I can see what beautiful things she can do and indeed likes.
Remarkable.
Regards from a cold England.
Neil.

Oh Mary, what a beautiful story and beautiful lady you are. WOW!

I'm just now at my age (60) learning about horses as our neighbor is boarding a horse next to our property and Pepper (horse) comes to visit us at the fence and I give her a carrot. They are beautiful gentle animals but I have to tell you, I'm intimidated by their size.

God has blessed you richly!

Thank you Sharon, for sharing another wonderful story.

Great.. great.. great. Hurray! I was reading along, totally enthralled and got to the part abotu the lambs and said, " Oh, I have met Mary. She the Little lamb thread, I had enjoyed so much."

If you haven't read it, you should. It been along time, but hoping it will be revised to read about this years lambing.

Mary.. Yep, you never know where God will lead you, but He sure did lead you and your hubby down the right path. Thanks for sharing your story. I never realized that about vacations and private time for pastors and preachers and glad they have ha d you both to come too.

Funny too, I was going through old cook books and found one for baking from ration time s and also found a publication from 1935 from Texas Ag department on canning meat in the home and was wondering if I could try and learn to do it. Now I know who to ask.

Maybe if ya get the time, you can start a thread somewhere for us folks who want to learn how to do it. Times are tough and we now need to learn these skills from folks like you.

Thanks again. Was nice getting to know you as more than the little lamb lady. Thumbs up

Wonderful, beautiful article and lady. It's so nice to read about the lady behind those glowing descriptions of land, animals and people. The Lord truly has great ambassadors in you and your husband Mary.

Awww, you are all so generous and kind with your remarks. Looking back at my life I can see how God used our experiences to prepare me to help other people and do things. Much of it wasn't easy but we came out the other side smiling.

As to advising people on food preservation, I don't feel qualified although I've done a fair amount of it. I've never canned meat, I freeze it. My Ball Canning Book is my main guide, along with a big notebook full of information from the Oregon State University Extension Service. I refer to them a lot because I want the food to be safe and because I don't remember numbers well enough to trust my memory on processing times.

Neil, that fern is so pretty. Thanks for showing us again. I'll be sure to do that one when it becomes a puzzle. Many who read this thread might not have been aware of Zany's puzzle forum. I've been working on another one for several days now, making verrrrry slow progress but I'm not giving up!
