Like a walk through the country side living on a small farm is full of daily surprises, sometimes wonderful and amazing, and other times puzzling and sad. I hope you will walk with me as I live out my dream of living on this tiny farm. You will come to know the dogs, cats, Shetland sheep and chickens that make up this farm and what goes into keeping them happy and healthy. Come and join the journey with me.

Look what happend.....

....While I was looking the other way.....

Caught up in the pressures of life, trying to get it all done, its so easy to not appreciate the beauty that surrounds us. After a long, harsh winter, we longed for Spring. Then suddenly, we woke up in a whole new world. The browns that clothed the land, now show a tinge of green. A little rain, and overnight the pastures are a glittering emerald green. Ah.... SPRING. Then the next moment the green is splashed with yellow dandelions. The air is heavy with the powerful sweet scent of hyacinths, flowering plum, cherry and apple trees. Color is suddenly everywhere---the grape of the hyacinths, white cherry blossoms, pink redbuds, the brash yellow of jonquils. Like a paint by number picture, slowly and lovingly the vibrant colors are filled in.

Take time to look and see! Spring is so very busy, I know, especially if you are a shepherd and the new babes are filling the stalls and pastures. The season is busy and brief, but take a moment to sit out there amongst the newborn lambs, smell the heavy sweet aroma of spring and enjoy the glorious color of Spring that God extravagantly blesses us with.
