Life on the Farm

What is life on the farm what does it mean to a weary person? Life on the farm is the place where after being up at 5:30am and working all day you still make a meal at 9:00pm for the other person who has been working all day. Or perhaps this is life as God meant it to be that we bless others before ourselves. Last night I was at my great aunt’s place and she made me a meal. We ate and then all of a sudden I was so tired that I could barely keep my eyes open, so she insisted i lay down. I slept for 20 minutes, but it felt like 4 hours. Then we watched a movie called The Other Side of Heaven. It was so nice. It is a Disney film about a Mormon missionary. He goes away for 2 ½ years and sees God heal a dead boy, his own feet and people finding faith. I know that there are things that are not particularly doctrinally sound in their faith, but I was so inspired. I think it was definitely a God moment. I will talk more of this movie later for now back to the farm.

Life on the farm is about sweet fresh air sleep. I have slept 11 hours each night waking up a little bit during the night but then returning to sleep. There are no drunks out my window and not stale hot air to try and sleep in. I am blessed. My stress level is descending as is my fat lip that grows with stress (cold sores). I feel very lost and very free down here. Lost in the wonders of God’s creation and free to revamp my relationship with my LORD. Shalom, peace.
