Here's are some things you would get to see if you came to our farm. Everyday I wake up, I love the smells, the sounds, the colors, the animals, the garden, its home until I get to my real home.....I love country but I will love heaven more!
and you would see all the strawberry blooms....where berries
will soon be, Lord willin'
so us humans can eat and eat and eat em'
I am about to tell how old I am......when I was in school, my English teacher taught us to recognize a prepositions by asking a question, "if it is where a mouse can run." Like in, out, around, up, down. I was not a studious student at all, I was a lost girl, seeking fun and pleasures of this world but somehow I do remember what a preposition is. I was reading in the book of I Peter this morning and it has to be one of my favorite books. It speaks of suffering, how to endure, faith and what is ahead. I think Peter understood suffering, he was used of the Lord to record for us, me, of how too endure a "trial of our faith." I saw three prepositions that encouraged my heart, "by, from, to." .......hath begotton us again unto a lively hope by the resurrection of Jesus Christ from the dead, to an inheritance incorruptible, and undefiled, and that fadeth not away, reserved in heaven for you. (I Peter 1:3-4) Reading God's word is like going on a treasure hunt to me, I so enjoy finding "little" pieces of truth/gold to meditate upon. These three words did just that this morning. As I thought of "by," I thought of how we sometimes have to pass by suffering having it enter into our lives for a season, like how the cross is associated with the resurrection. With the word "from death" I thought of how in a sense we get to run from death, our earthly tabernacles will die, but we will live forever with the Lord! And the other wonderful preposition "to," gives hope of what is ahead, where we are going to. To the inheritance....heaven! The scriptures say that by every word we live, it speaks of jots and tittles, so even these three little words speak truth to my heart.
Its super cloudy today. Guys are working but if the rain starts, they will have to head home. If the rain holds off, I guess I am going to be the hamburger cook-er-ator tomorrow at Dave and Kate's roof raising. Most of them will head over in the morning and then the rest of us will go over towards lunch and get the grill going for hungry fellas.
Most of the crew will hit the inside volley-ball courts tonight, Terry and I will hang here and sip coffee and watch the littles.
Have a great weekend!!!
