The Sting of Rejection

The Sting of Rejection

I Peter 2:4 says, ” As you come to Him, the living Stone–rejected by humans but chosen by God and precious to Him.” Last week,  Farmer Dean called me and asked, “Ma’am, did you change the password on our computer?” “No,” I stated flatly. “Well, it won’t let me in,” he answered. We tried again […]

The Space Between Tragedy & Reality

The Space Between Tragedy & Reality

Many years ago, my best friend from New York called me sobbing.  She was at work when she learned the sad news that her father had passed.  Her world revolved around the kind man, and it was a horrible tragedy. She was at her desk and completely undone.  I asked her calmly to hand the […]

What’s Humility Look Like On You

What’s Humility Look Like On You

Recently, Farmer Dean and I were at a store looking for a new jacket.  Dean was along for his opinion, but as a shopper, I pretty much know what I like and what I don’t like. The Farmer is kind and gentle.  He’s not boastful and he’s pretty good at being humble.  So when he […]

No Vacancy

No Vacancy

Today is dark and wintry. There is stillness in the air that has enveloped me and as I look out over the farm, the sun is slowly setting. A night like this always makes me remember a journey some thirty years ago. It was a cold, wintry night when all hope seemed lost. That night, […]

Sounds Like a Plan

Sounds Like a Plan

When I met my husband, many years ago, I picked up on all of his habit-phrases.  You know the ones I mean … when people say the same thing after the same situation occurs. One of Farmer Dean’s familiar sayings comes after my delivering some desires and hope of what we should do over the […]

Developing a Child-Like Faith

Developing a Child-Like Faith

As I carried my granddaughter up the stairs of the old 1910 house, each step creaked loudly, echoing the sounds of yesteryears.  I imagined how many times the stairs were climbed as a little child was carried off for nap time. The day was struggling between releasing its summer warmth to embracing the coolness of […]

Can You Live With Silence

Can You Live With Silence

The first thing I do after I open my eyes in the morning is talk to God.  Then, I talk to Farmer Dean.  Then, I turn the music on at my house. My brother calls it “grocery store music,” but I call it music from the 1940s and 50s.  It’s soothing to my soul.  As […]

The Fundraiser in the Grove

The Fundraiser in the Grove

Last weekend was the 4th annual fund raiser for Best Life Ministries.  The week before the event, the farmer and I worked diligently to prepare every single detail to make things comfortable, welcoming, and enjoyable. We always think about what will help people experience a glimpse into the past, and one of my favorite things […]

The Wedding

The Wedding

There is a hot spring breeze blowing through the big trees outside the living room.  As I look past the tops of those trees, I see my beloved little 1900’s church steeple and think about yesterday.  It was a milestone for us both. Since I was a little four-year-old sitting next to Daddy in the […]

What’s in Your Closet

What’s in Your Closet

  In television comedies, like I Love Lucy, an actor opens a surreptitiously bulging door to a storage area and is buried in an avalanche of junk. Something similar happened one day when all three of my daughters visited my home. My youngest, Jenessa, tried to open the basement closet door. A small pow-wow between […]
