Preparing the Hobby Farm for Spring

Spring Cleaning Hearts and Homes

This weekend we will finally be home and have some time to prepare the little hobby farm here for spring. It is my absolute favorite time of year!

The excitement of warm weather on the horizon, the birds have returned, flowers are beginning to bloom, trees are budding, frogs are croaking, and the feeling of LIFE is everywhere!

I posted this spring SYMPHONY on Instagram last night! It was heavenly at sunset! Click on the video to listen to nature’s music!

 

A spring symphony. 💛 #enjoythesimple #simplylivingforhim #lovesfarm #spring

Easter is upon us, and rebirth is on my mind. Spring is such a beautiful time of year and everything about it points to our Savior. It is a time of rebirth and rejoicing! Spiritually, spring holds so many special qualities for me.

And then there are the practical things we must do to prepare for spring around here at Love’s Farm.

Steve and I plan on working this weekend to get the gardens ready for planting, get the animals comfortable again, and celebrate the newness of this magnificent time of year.

As we work to prepare the farm, I will also work to prepare my heart. There is so much there that often needs some deep cleaning as well. I am comparing it to the deep cleaning that is about to take place- it must be done so that life can burst forth!

Hallelujah!

If you have a little hobby farm like we do, or a yard and garden, here are some jobs that we are working on that may help you in planning your spring cleaning.

Podcast Ep 30 • From Suburbia to Hobby Farm

Hobby Farm

Many of you know that almost two years ago, we packed up a  26 ft. Uhaul and moved to the country. We didn’t grow up this way, and many may wonder how on earth we ended up here? Why did we trade in the sidewalks of suburbia for woods and a stream? Why did we choose to spend evenings chasing chickens instead of life in a neighborhood?

There are many reasons why we chose this life, but mainly because God gave us the desires of our hearts. We are now loving life out here, growing food along with a ministry, raising chicken, ducks, and guineas, and the serenity that comes from our little slice of hobby farm heaven.

You Don’t Need a Farm to Live Simply. Learning to Live Right Where You Are

You don’t need a thing to live simply. That’s the beauty. You don’t need a farm. You don’t need land. You don’t need a tiny house. You don’t need chickens or a garden or a lifestyle change. You need a heart that is willing to let go of things, but how that looks for each of us may be different.

Living simply is a mindset more than a lifestyle. It is chasing after God, and desiring less of what the world offers. When we seek Him more we pursue less “stuff” here on earth.

Last year we bought our property– a small hobby farm. Yes, it has allowed us to live more simply because God has placed the desire in our heart to garden, get back to basics, raise chickens, and enjoy His creation.

Yet that same desire may not be in your heart. You may love the city life or suburbia, or wherever He has placed you. The country life may not be for you.

We can all live simply right where we are. It isn’t about our surroundings, but what we do with where He has placed us.

Smack in the middle of the city and the hustle and bustle you can live simply. You can seek Him wherever you are and choose people over things. You can choose to be a light in the dark. You can choose Him wherever He has placed you.

Seek Him wherever you are. In the country, in the city, in a foreign land. Choose to live with less and desire Him more. Choose to develop relationships over accumulating things. All of that can be done in any setting.

Don’t wait for the perfect time. Start now. Choose to desire God over everything else and see where He leads you.

Living simply is a matter of the heart, not just a choice to have less. It is a desire to do more real things, live intentionally and with purpose, and seek Him above all else.
