My View


This was my view this morning.  Beautiful.  To me that is.  To others it may not be and that is fine.  They have their own view that they think is beautiful.  Each day I am blessed to be able to look out at my view, take a step outside, breath in the fall air and say, “Thank you”.

Thank you for what?  For another day on this earth.  For a husband who loves me and children who need me.  For the wind and the rain and the sun and the moon.  For the talents God has given me.  For the crops and the livestock.  For family and friends.  For a roof over my head and food on my table.

There are things that make us unhappy, sad and even mad.  These things can only do that if we choose to let them do so.  So today I chose to look out at my view and remember that, “Every morning I wake up knowing that I am truly blessed and right where God planned for me to be.” 

No matter what is happening in the world, country, your state or your home town; say a thank you for yet another day and a view to look at.

Blessings to you,

Farm Picture Friday #17

FPF #17

Beautiful Blue Sky’s!  This is what I saw yesterday morning bright and early as the guys were getting the planter ready one more time for the final bit of planting 2013.  Seth got around very early (much earlier that I like to be up in the summer) and headed to the field to replant a few beans at our cash rent farm.  It is far enough away and there is some black top roads to travel on that we don’t go  unless there is someone to “flag” for the tractor.  Thus the reason I too was up at the crack of dawn! (I really need to write a post about flagging for farm equipment.  You would be amazed at what some people do and don’t do when they see a large piece of equipment coming at them.)

The morning was beautiful, but by 10:00 a.m. the clouds had once again rolled in and we had a chance for more rain.  Thankfully the rain stayed away, so even thought it was a little green, hay was bailed and the kids got to play their final baseball games.

Yesterday not only wrapped up planting, be we also had some visitors to the farm.  We were very excited to have Ms. Rebecca, Mr. Mark and Ms. Jenna here at our home.  The reason of their visit will be reviled soon, but for now we just want to again say thank you for coming!

Blessings to you,
