What a couple of weeks we've had! This Texas weather.... it has been something else. A couple of days of snow is FUN but when it's rainy and cold and gray day in and day out, we get serious cabin fever! We have done a bare minimum of outdoor chores to keep the animals happy and healthy. We are ready for some real outdoor work...starting Saturday with the beginning of our newest project: A barnyard/corral area. We will be bringing home our 2 cows soon, a momma and her heifer. (names coming soon!)
With the abundance of indoor time, we have had plenty of time to think, pray, and do a little planning. This journey we have decided to embark on can be a little overwhelming, a little scary, a lot exciting. Those little signs we get that confirm we are staying in God's will are always a relief.
It feels like we've experienced many losses in the last few years, especially in the last few months. Last week, we had to say "See you later!" to a dear friend and Christian pillar in our community. A great loss we were all hoping wouldn't come so soon. But we rejoice that he is flying on wings as eagles... running, walking. And we rejoice knowing that we will see him again!
We are looking forward to spring. To new life. To growth. To flowers. To greenery. Spring is so refreshing! Spring chicks. Spring gardens. What's not to love? Oh... the springing forward in time this weekend. That's the only thing I can think of. Ha! ;)
