Sometimes I find myself just needing to slow down and it's funny how God realizes this. I run, run, run until I'm ragged with little time for the REAL things, the THINGS that matter. I look around my house and I know that it could be cleaner, the laundry could be done in a more timely manner, but is that what makes me more holy or accepted by God? No, absolutely not. As our family continues to grow, as I continue to work in town, and as my husband continues to put in long hours farming I have come to realize that time is very precious. These are the years we can't get back with little ones growing as fast as weeds. These are the years to stay focused on our marriage, even with littles needing us often. So the other morning when I woke to this reminder to slow down and SOAK IT ALL IN, how could I pass it up?
"My purpose is to give life." John 10:10
I couldn't. I knew I needed to document this special time as it's just a small piece of my crazy hectic life. Each day is a true reminder of the gift God has given us. There is SO much life to be had. So I need to remember to stop, take a deep breath and enjoy my surroundings, crumbs stuck to my feet and all.
I'm Lisa, a farm wife, mom and old lady at heart (or my husband tells me so). Agriculture, quilting, and baking were my first loves and now I get to enjoy them with my family!
