Days without the humidity!
A light breeze.
Coffee tastes so good in this weather.
I notice the trees.
I straighten the porch swing.
Maybe a few days without rain will keep it dry enough to be able to swing.
Someday we’ll replace the tin roof that leaks.
I will just cherish this stretch of cooler weather.
I will sip my Hot Coffee and breathe.
Hay is down.
We’re so short on hay.
It’s been a horrible year for us.
I’m not stepping into fear.
I don’t know what the future holds;
but I know who holds the future.
Life has been so busy this summer I have lost a bit of who I am.
I have been caught up in the doing and missed so much of the being.
We’ve opened the farm to so many as we raised funds for Elijah’s Memorial Fund.
What an amazing day.
I am still recovering from all of the preparation and emotion that day brings.
I’m learning how much I need to be quiet.
Gone are the days where I thrived on activity and hustle and bustle.
Now, I find myself easily overwhelmed and in need of quiet and peace.
As I draw closer to God in this process I am learning many things.
I am grateful for these lessons.
I send my next to youngest off to the High School this year.
So many changes.
I am truly trying to embrace all this change.
I am letting it guide me instead of fighting it.
I am trusting God in the details.
I am letting go of my fears and expectations.
Joy finds me around the corner when I let go.
It is amazing to me.
When I cease to have expectations or the need to control I find myself free and open to enjoy the process.
God has all these plans already.
I need to just be ready to do His work and be His Hands and Feet.
As I sit and drink my Hot Coffee and and enjoy the cooler weather this morning, I will continue to look up.
I will look up to the heavens for guidance and strength.
Joy will find me.
When anxiety was great within me, your consolation brought me joy.
