Hello Farm Friends,
Don't get weary, don't give up, don't get tired, and whatever you do don't STOP! Those lessons seem to hit me from so many different, seemingly unrelated angles in my life right now that I thought perhaps I should share this thought! I seem to be reminded that perseverance pays off at every turn. It will be a huge blessing to us to be finished with the construction of our new hoophouses, but in order to complete them…I have to keep going! It will be wonderful when Dylem learns his alphabet and doesn't call "u".."t" and so forth, but in order for that to happen we can't give up we have to keep on teaching and learning. But more importantly, when it seems like the whole world has been turned on ear and I hear things that scare me, shake my foundation, cause me to question if I REALLY have the kind of faith it takes to move mountains in order to maintain peace in my heart…I have to totally remember to not grow weary in trusting God. He is the same today as he was at the very beginning of life. He created a good work in me, in my boys, in my farm, in this whole world and He will see it all through to the very end…with us all each step of the way!
Wherever you are, whatever you are doing see it through to completion! Don't give up, refocus and keep going!
"Let us not become weary in doing good, for at the proper time we will reap a harvest if we do not give up. Therefore, as we have opportunity, let us do good to all people…Galations 6:9-10

BONUS WEEK! Check out our latest farm addition that we lovingly call Hoophouse #3! and then check out Dylem's latest ride...
According to Dylem he now knows how to drive a bulldozer after Jonathan Johnson gave him a ride and lesson on his bulldozer! And if anyone out there has a desire to learn to drive a big piece of machinery here is how expert Dylem explains it…"you just pull this little lever up and down"…there you have it folks! Jonathan was here with his bulldozer to do leveling and ditching around the new hoophouses. Both boys were totally entertained for the entire time he worked. I told Jim we could just have Jonathan come over and we could go out for a date…then Jim reminded me it would be about $300.00 an hour for babysitting! Haha!
