It might be possible that when you arrive here on the farm you may be like, “what is this lady writing about this picturesque farm?” “her writing must be smoke and mirrors” or “she takes pretty good pictures” … It could be one of these…
But the way I see it, I see hope and a future. I am truly in love with this work of “art”, this farm. When I rise I am excited of the possibilities in a day and what it can bring here. I love a project. It would be boring for me if everything is done. Some see it as a lot of work, I see it as a lot of life yet to be lived, or a blank canvas waiting to be painted.
What you see here is my heart. When I take a picture of our farm, this is what I see. I see hope, I see a legacy, I see peace. I even see GOD!
There are many unlovely photos I could take, but I just don’t see them. I believe life can be what we choose it to be or what we focus on. Beauty is in the eye of the beholder is such a true statement.
Some ask us in a sarcasm or mean tone, “so, are you going to move again”? We have moved more than some, but for us, life is not meant to be lived in one spot. How boring that would be! Alas, to think in the 100 years of our life that for 1 year we lived as we just did…. We wouldn’t trade it for anything.
The palace was an absolute work of art, BEAUTY and more. But it was finished. Our time there was done as the project was completed…
I thank my Lord for new horizons, as this humble farm home, HE is new every morning! With all of the challenges we wouldn’t want to be anywhere else at this point.
