Solitude

Is it just me?

Or do you crave it too?

Solitude...


To me, solitude is right up there with air and water.


I need it.

I crave it.

It soothes my soul.



If you are looking for solitude, I hope you find it.

And if you haven't gotten "right with God"...
who provides the ultimate "soothing of the soul",
you can do so by going to this website (highlighted below).

Have fun flipping the pages on this little book...computer style.

Until next time dear friends, God willing...

Summer Sizzle

My life is simple.

No alarms.

No office to head to.

I am lead by one thing, and one thing only.

Jesus...
Oh, but I try...




Two new (just weaned) lambs grace our small farm.

Retrieved this past Saturday, from an Amish farm, a couple hours south of us.


It was a wonderful trip, with my friend, Ellen.

We were within minutes of the Horse Progress Days,
but couldn't stop with our precious cargo.


If that's not enough, I'm heading on a solo trek on Thursday,
to get our new piglets (just weaned),
from another Amish farmer.

I love my Amish farmer friends.  

Until then, keep your eye on the prize...God willing.


"Through him we have also obtained access by faith into this grace in which we stand, and we rejoice in hope of the glory of God. 
More than that, 
we rejoice in our sufferings, 
knowing that suffering produces endurance, 
and endurance produces character, 
and character produces hope, 
and hope does not put us to shame, 
because God’s love has been poured into our hearts 
through the Holy Spirit who has been given to us."
Romans 5:2-5
