Happy Mother's day to you all. This morning I have been thinking of all of us who have lost their momma's. Today is bittersweet for me. This is the first Momma's Day with out my Momma. I thought a lot about it yesterday when I was out and saw all the daughters with their Moms. I haven't ever thought about it much, but yesterday it really struck me hard. I am so thankful that Momma is with the Lord. The best gift for her right now is that I continue to walk with the Lord and teach the next generation the Truth..........I will......to the best of my abilities. Leaning in hard trusting the Lord for His leading!
I have no greater joy than this, to hear of my children walking in truth........3 John 1:4
As you know we have a lot of college boys that the Lord has brought into our families life. It has been precious to watch how our 5 children here on earth have also adopted them right into their own lives and also into our grandkids. We have a bigger family now. Anyway this morning I woke early again.........I knew that one of our college boys had asked if he could come out to the farm and just do some "stuff" (our little farm needs lots and lots of work done to make it our own)......he loves to work. I will tell you later about what we did yesterday.....but we were gone. We told him of course......he loves to be out on the farm. It is peaceful and very quiet. I didn't know what he was going to work on........this is what I saw this morning. I stood their crying like a baby.......stunned. He had cleared "ALL" the area where my dream greenhouse is to go. A Momma's Day present to me.......from from a kid that is not even mine......to experience the love from this whole act of kindness was amazing to my heart. To think 3 years ago when we started working at the college I would have more kids to love on then I could ever imagine........but the fact that they love me......now that is a "GIFT"....straight from the Father's Hand. I am so excited!!!!! God is unfolding his plan for Prairie Flower Farm right before my eyes. Today we will be celebrating Momma's Day......I will have my own blood children with.......but also the ones that have been grafted into my heart........ones that I will spend eternity with...some who have found Jesus and want Him like we do.......it will be a celebration! We were told yesterday that "our presence at the baseball games have been noticed.....we keep asking them to church......maybe not today.....but maybe one day!
I love you sweet ladies.......who faithfully come and are a part of my everyday life. May the Lord bless all you Mommas.......and those of you who feel like you have been forgotten.......ask the Lord to give you someone...their are so many kids that need a Mom. You can find them in the colleges.....the schools......in the Sunday School classes......or maybe right next door.
If your Momma is gone......I am praying for you! If you have never been able to have a little one......I am praying for you even harder.......God has you in the palm of His Hand.....He knows what He is doing with your life.......some of it really stinks it seems......but it doesn't change His position or care for you! He is faithful..........I promise.
I will give you treasures of darkness, riches stored in secret places, so that you may “know that I am the Lord, the God of Israel, who summons you by name. Isaiah 45:3 Oh to know Him!
Hugs from the farm,
