Storms…

So many storms going on right now. Details might be different, but the needs are the same. I was led to Isaiah 40:11 this morning while I was praying for a friend and it struck me how the answer is always the same: JESUS! He is the Way, the Truth, and the Life. He is the Good Shepherd, the Comforter, PEACE.โœ๏ธ

Father, draw more to Yourself through these storms in our lives. As we submit to You, help us to recognize You are THE SUSTAINER: carrying and gently leading us. You will never leave us nor forsake us. PRAISE GOD!๐Ÿ™๐Ÿผโค๏ธ


[pondering Isaiah 40:11, Matthew 11:28-30, John 14:6, John 10:11, 2 Corinthians 1:3-4, John 14:27, Deuteronomy 31:6]

Resting in green pastures


Getting the girls this morning for milking…this scene made me think of Psalm 23, especially verses 2-3.  He lets me rest in green meadows; He leads me beside peaceful streams. He renews my strength. He guides me along right paths, bringing honor to His name.

Lord, our girls are so good at resting in green pastures. Show me how to feel rested like that. Restore my soul in the midst of Today. Amen๐Ÿ™๐Ÿผ

Pondering Scripture

Nothing more beautiful than pondering a line of Scripture and more Truths are brought to your mind…โค๏ธ

I read Proverbs 12 this morning and verse 14 really spoke to me: From the fruit of his lips a man is filled with good things as surely as the work of his hands rewards him. 

My chain of thoughts:

Luke 6:45 & Romans 15:13 (GOOD FRUIT – what I speak when I’m overflowing with Hope; the fruit of my lips)

Psalm 90:17 & Colossians 3:17+23-24 (It’s the Lord Who establishes the work of our hands, and when I remember that and walk in thanksgiving to the Lord Christ Whom I am serving, I am rewarded…BEAUTIFUL!๐Ÿ™๐Ÿผ

Just sayin…

Clinging to what is GOOD (Romans 12:9) is a whole lot easier if you FOCUS on what is TRUE, NOBLE, RIGHT, PURE, LOVELY, ADMIRABLE, EXCELLENT or PRAISEWORTHY (Philippians 4:8)…

….instead of whatever the perceived offense is I am choosing to dwell on.

DUH.๐Ÿ™„

What an amazingly patient Father You are, Lord! Sink these Truths deep into my heart. Lord, have mercy. AMEN๐Ÿ™๐Ÿผโค๏ธ

4th calf 2016

What a beautiful morning here!โ˜€๏ธ  

Mike and I started the morning out blazing a trail through the briars to get to our cross. It was a beautiful morning of prayer together on this Resurrection Sunday.โค๏ธ

  
  
Next, we headed over to check on the girls, and spotted some extra little legs…  

PeaPod had a girl! We named her: Hope.โค๏ธโœ {Click here to read PeaPod’s post from last year.} 

I had forgotten that we’ve had calves on Easter before… If you’d like to read about them, click here and here and here.

 
They walked over to the hay we brought.  

  
And then we prepared for the walk down to the barn.

  
  
  
These two weren’t as smooth as the last three sets were. Ended up giving Hope a ride down the rest of the way while her mama sauntered down at her own pace.๐Ÿฎ

  
  
  
  
  
  
Used some hay bales to close up a temporary pen for Hope…
 
…and then she promptly did a jailbreak right through it, lol!๐Ÿ™„ So Mike had to take a few extra minutes to build something a little more durable.๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿผ  

  
And then reinforced it with the bales…

 
Couldn’t resist sharing this pic of Blake introducing himself to Hope.๐Ÿ˜

  
We weren’t able to make it to our church service this morning, so the four of us headed back up to the cross together. Paul picked us some daffodils, and off we went. Mike read Luke 24, and we shared/prayed together. It was nice to kinda reenact the Easter sunrise service we used to have…โœ

  
Tally now is 3 girls, 1 boy.๐Ÿ˜Ž

Thank You, Lord, for HOPE!โค๏ธ

Scripture pictures and frames

Over the past few years, we have played with adding Scripture to pictures we’ve taken as we “walk”.ย  Here is a post about the frames we made from our old pickets as 2014 Christmas gifts, and a link to a new page on this blog that will house the pictures. ๐Ÿ™‚

IMG_0297IMG_2810IMG_2651You’ll notice we had to change the location of the white note – not a good idea to cover up the hole where the dowel rod should go, lol! ๐Ÿ™‚

Since I didn’t have enough pockets for each frame, some got envelopes instead. ๐Ÿ™‚
