{soothing the soul}

04.18.12

Under a perfectly warm, sun-filled, cloud-painted sky, is where we got to spend some time with our cattle this week/end.  Both the morning and evening time are where some of my fondest memories have been out in the field or in our garden.  Simply taking it all in.  Taking the time to be thankful for all that we have.  Taking the time to put away all the worry, complaints, stresses, fears, unknowns… and simply just be.

Letting the peace and happiness of the warm sun seep into your soul is incredibly revitalizing.  Recently, both Tyler and I have been feeling the reality of owning your own business.  The weight of it is almost crushing at times.  But when we get to go out and just farm, be with nature, and be quite & still, those are the times that perspective floods in and we realize it’s all going to be ok.  If the birds of the air do not sow or reap or store away in barns, and yet your heavenly Father feeds them.  Are we not much more valuable than they? Can any one of us by worrying add a single hour to our life?

When we go out and tend the animals and let Creation engulf us, I am filled.  And Truth is spoken to my heart by being in this beautiful place.
