I love how wild flowers pop up all over the farm even in the grass

I have no idea what this plant is but it blooms all summer and it completely covers a small hill at the side of my house

It is such a joy to be able to walk out and see the horses enjoying the 5 acre field in the back of our farm

Sorry this picture is a little dark it was taken early evening and I love looking out over the fields and seeing the different shades of green and gold from the wheat field and the pinky tones in the sky. I am so aware of how beautiful the country side is and I am so thankful that the Lord has placed us here

I Hear Your Voice

I hear Your voice when the winds roar through the tall pines

You wink at me through twinkling stars in the night skies your majesty on display till the end of time

My mornings begin with muted tones of orange and pinks as You paint for me the sunrise

Each one unique and special my own secret find

As I let the dogs out the dew is heavy and I watch my water-loving Newfoundland rub against the bushes enjoying nature’s shower

Reminding me how You provide for all Your creation great or small we can see your power

Around this time You sing to me

Through all the birds that surround this place wild and free

The clock moves on and I head toward the barn and I can see You waving to me in the wild flowers that sway to and fro

Later as I walk the field with my goats I am reminded of what a Great Sheppard You are  as the breeze wafts by gentle and slow

When one is lost You always take stock

Nothing is more important to You than your sheep, your flock.

And with gentle care You guide them back with a loving hand

No matter where they have been or what they have done throughout the land

You love has always been unconditional You are always ready to forgive

And I rejoice that Your mercies are made new every morning like the air we need to live

While watching my horses run the meadow kicking up their heels is such a joyous sight

I am in awe of Your imagination to create the animals we enjoy, it’s just another display of Your power and might.

And as I look out across the fields and see the patchwork display of greens, browns yellow and gold

I see You again in the land you created to give us bounty that’s untold

But as it is said in your word that If I or man ever failed to praise Your name

The very rocks would cry out to the heavens and praise You just the same

Jesus Walk Me Home

Sometimes I get so discouraged here on earth, living on this block

It’s times like this when I need to take a moment and just take stock

Despite the never-ending problems that I face day by day

I have a glorious Savior who understands what comes my way

When I feel defeated, scared, or hurt Jesus is the one I turn to in the night

I can pour out all my feelings and He knows just how to put things right

All I have to do is trust Him with all the details of my life

He knows the things I am right in and He knows what decisions cause me strife

I have a loving savior who loves me and knows how to save my life

He is my great protector, my Father and my Friend

He’s with me in the darkness, He walks me to the light, He’ll never leave me or forsake me is the message that he sends

If I make a mistake He forgives me that’s just the way He is

His Love is never-ending and He is patient to forgive

Jesus I am so happy that I know You and that I am not alone

You’ll be with me no matter what, until comes the ,day when you finally walk me home

The Hope I Have In You

Romans 12:12-rejoicing in hope, patient in tribulation, continuing steadfastly in prayer.

1 Thessalonians:5:8-But let us who are of the day be sober, putting on the breastplate of faith and love, and as a helmet the hope of salvation.

Hebrews:6:18-19 that by two immutable things in which it is impossible for
God to lie, we might have strong consolation, who have fled for refuge to lay hold of the hope set before us.19 This hope we have as an anchor of the soul, both sure and steadfast and which enters the Presence behind the veil

Who walks the wee hours of the morning with me when sleep is nothing but a fleeting illusion

Ready to bring in a new dawn where His mercies are made new and forgiveness is a forgone conclusion

Jesus your strength enables me to handle the pain for Your arms hold me up

And You breathe life into me as I sip from your cup

Not a servant but a friend I am to You, for you whisper my name

Saying I am your precious child and things will never be the same

It is Your hand that guides me onto the right path when I can’t find my way

It is Your love for me, that made you lay down your life for mine, a price a could not pay

Your promise, never to leave me or forsake me, echo’s forever in my mind

Your presence behind the veil, a refuge of protection, that continues for all time

Jesus You are faithful even when things seem to go all wrong and I feel misunderstood

Your always working on behalf of me to make all things workout  for my good

Jesus You are that miracle worker that takes away my sin and gives me new life

You make me lay down in peace that I don’t deserve and hear my prayers on high

No matter what happens in this life I know the hope I have in You

The promise of everlasting life in heaven and unbroken fellowship so true.
