My family and I live on a small hobby farm where many opportunities exist, including that of exploring an interest in raising and showing dairy goats. I milk up to 10 goats twice a day for ten months out of the year and kid everyone out around March. I keep the herd small and manageable to enable each of them being on my show string. Having the goats has truly been a wonderful hands-on learning experience and many sun-rises have been enjoyed out in the barn during milking time. During the spring and summer, we garden and preserve the harvest and seek to be at least some what self-sustaining. Numerous hours are spent enjoying the outdoors and working on many farm projects. Once the cold sets in, baking is a particular enjoyment of mine and my family doesn't mind all the practice. Each day is a treasure that I thank the Lord for and seek to live it with much joy and thankfulness, appreciating the simple things in life and finding the extraordinary in many plain ordinary things. One day I earnestly hope to look back over my life and say in hindsight, that it hasn't been wasted and has been lived for Christ's glory.
This blog began as a home-school project, a tool to make creative writing enjoyable...over time, it has morphed into a free time hobby, a picture journal and a blessing in my life. Sometimes I just let the blog sit and don't write anything at all. There are phases of deep inspiration from the Lord, and times of silence too, which I have learned is to be embraced: to be still and listen to the Lord. Wherever I am on the journey, it is my heart's desire that whoever reads this blog can look past my imperfections, and see the incredible sovereignty of our Lord Jesus Christ, who has given me a new life in Him, hope and joy in many little things. If there is anything on these pages that encourages you , it is all because of Jesus.
Thanks for stopping by.
