When it Comes to HoneyBees...

One of our favorite things about homesteading on Pilgrim's Farm...
is beekeeping

it's a whole world of  bee cities that thrive on being busy...

in a most delightfully sweet way

to watch the honeybees as they bring alive the jungle of bush...

and in the gardens as they hum and buzz...

winging their way back and forth...
never complaining of hard work

just doing the duties that sovereign God gave to each little bee

truly, the honeybees work at making honey much harder than we do at beekeeping

and the end result is this...

we get a lot of requests for our honey...
sometimes, we have enough to sell to a few...
sometimes, not

I do have one special little jar of Pilgrim's Farm honey...
just for my readers

next week, please do look for a sweet give-away from our farm
I'll let you know more, then

If thou forbear to deliver them that are drawn unto death,
and those that are ready to be slain;
if thou sayest, Behold, we knew it not;
doth not He that pondereth the heart consider it?
and He that keepeth thy soul,
doth not He know it?
and shall not He render to every man according to his works?
My son, eat thou honey, because it is good;
and the honeycomb,
which is sweet to thy taste:
So shall the knowledge of wisdom be unto thy soul:
when thou hast found it, 
then there shall be a reward,
and thy expectation shall not be cut off.
Proverbs 24:12-14

May your day or night be like honey in the grace of God.


  1. I've always liked bees. I have a wasp problem now...
    Look at that picture of Foxie in your sidebar! She's never a bad girl!

    1. Well, wasps are good for something too, but bees are better : ) And Foxie, she's good at faking looking like a good girl...ha-ha. She can be ornery, but I still love her.

  2. What are wasps good for? I gotta spray em with killer, and get rid of the nest....

  3. Bees are amazing creatures.
