All day it was pray and write. We looked at many things in our lives as two old lovers on a journey to down size the work load do.
Diffinitly selling the farm now to dear daughter number 5 and her husband with their 4 children. Actually swapping houses. Leaving the farm and moving to town. Their home is on 4 lots which is very pleasing to me as the chickens can still crow and the gardens can still produce their bounty. Their home is actually bigger then the farm house here. So we can still have the big family up/roars around the farm house table.
Thank you Father for giving us each other nothing seems to difficult knowing You are with us.
The Journey Not to long ago I posted Trunks and Bags. It was a soft post on how life was changing for our family. The need for downsizing. And trying to live a simpler life. …

Appreciation of the Mystery
14 For this reason I bow my knees to the Father of our Lord Jesus Christ,15 from whom the whole family in heaven and earth is named, 16 that He would grant you, according to the riches of His glory, to be strengthened with might through His Spirit in the inner man, 17 that Christ may dwell in your hearts through faith; that you, being rooted and grounded in love, 18 may be able to comprehend with all the saints what is the width and length and depth and height— 19 to know the love of Christ which passes knowledge; that you may be filled with all the fullness of God.
O-Appreciation of the Mystery: This Mystery of Love is to be Humbling to us. Nothing should compare with the knowledge of this Great Love of the Father toward us through His Son and Grace which was given at the Cross. More then just forgiveness, more then just Heaven the Power to Live pleasing to the Father in all things, starting in the inner man. This awesome Love which is to take root in our inner being is to be comprehended. I am certain this will take some time as we are growing in Faith as we exercise faith. Just appreciating this truth is amazing in itself. That my Father has done all He could do to convince me of His Love which is bigger and stronger then anything I could imagine.
A-Take time to meditate on my Father’s Love for me. Waiting on the Lord humbly bowed knowing that He alone has my name held in His name the name above all names. Literally my Father’s Love is so complete that the knowledge in and of itself is perfect in every way, dealing with my inner self to the fullness of His Glory in all things. Hello! Did I just read this? Did I just hear this? I am given the privilege of knowing the LOVE of my Father it is to be comprehended by me. I am overwhelmed at the fullness of this LOVE given to me.
P- Father please again forgive my lack of obedience to Your Word. It’s here with me everyday and I pass it by like it is unimportant and not necessary, when You have warned us that it is Your WORD that will give the Spirit power in us. Jesus Your Son is that very Word that needs to dwell in us richly. May this be my quest, let me thirst, let me hunger for this Love that is bigger and better then anything I have ever imagined and let it now begin to humble me to my knees.
