Spring has literally sprung overnight here at Love’s Farm. We went from shoveling snow not long ago to now needing to mow grass. And I love it! 😉
As you know, we had a rough winter. March hit us with several major storms. And this week, we were able to find redemption from those times. (quite honestly, physically, and also in some personal areas. God has been faithful!)
Back in March, during one of the most severe storms of that month, we lost a very large pine tree on our property. Thankfully there was no damage and the tree fell in an area where it didn’t even need to be removed right away. We were thankful, as so many in this area weren’t so fortunate, and there was quite a bit of damage and power outages.
Anyway, the past few weeks, Steve began to redeem that broken tree. He milled his own 18-foot wood planks and has been working to change our garden a bit. He used the planks to make new beds for the garden and they are beautiful.
It is all I could think about.
Taking what was once a hardship, refining, and making new.
And these beds will bring forth new life…
Just like God does in our lives all the time.
And look at that old wooden cross. The ultimate in redemption. What once was a rugged tree, brought life and hope to the world.
How do you see God redeeming things these days? I’d love to hear.
Simple Spring Days
Here are some more snapshots of our simple spring days around the farm. Life is busy, but oh, so full! I am enjoying every bit of sunshine and being outdoors with my kids. Outdoor school is our life these days!
The boys made this fort!
This summer, I am hosting a women’s retreat in Gettysburg, PA. In a world of excess, we are going to focus on that fact that Jesus is enough. The world will tell you YOU are enough. But truly, HE is enough. He is all we need. We don’t rely on ourselves, or earthly comforts, but on Him alone. I have lived with it all stripped away, and I have seen that yes, Jesus is enough. In fact, Jesus is MORE than enough.
Early Bird Registration is Open! Join us for this life-changing and life-giving event. You will spend two days with other sisters in Christ, tired of what the world offers, and ready to live the life that HE offers.
