On this Lord's Day, the first day of the New Year, I would like to share some thoughts with you.

The Lord made the sun and moon to rise and set creating days and nights. The twenty-four hours turned into days, days into weeks and weeks into months. He created four seasons which made up one year. And time goes on. Years become decades and decades become centuries.

All this talk of time brings me to one of the reasons why I believe God created time as he did. Hope. With each new day there is hope of a better tomorrow. A new week and month brings with it the hope of a new start. The changing seasons give us hope for better planting conditions, crops, harvest, renewal of life, and in winter rest. The principal of seed time and harvest can be applied to all areas of our life.

Without hope of a better tomorrow we would be overwhelmed by the burdens of life. So this Lord's Day, the first day of the New Year I am filled with the hope of promised better days ahead for each and everyone of us. What we sow today we will reap throughout the year so let's make this a great day full of kindness, peace, and joy.

Well said Sara!

Happy New Year and Gids blessings on you all.

Have set my goal on being more un tune to Gods wants and not mine, trusting him with where He leads me. I like control so this is big. I plan to continue to downsize in things and spending. I have discovered with my library card I can borrow ebooks not only from my local library but also two other larger systems in my state! For a book loving person this is big and will help on my spending! I still love the feel of real books and won't give them up totally but this will help. The library is half hour away so always glad to not have to drive, especially since there is close to an inch of ice on the country roads here! Not my idea of a good time #128563;

Blessings to all!

Rae, I see you are up early too. Your goals are similar to mind. To listen to what the Lord is telling me, simplify, de-clutter, and enjoy being in the moment. So glad you found eBooks. When I retired I promised myself I would no longer drive on ice unless it was a matter of life and death.

Sara and we aren't suppose to have rain storms in MN on Christmas! Crazy and that is one of the joys of retiring from outside work, bad roads no driving!

I have to admit as I get rid of I feel lighter and helps me stay focused on where I am headed and when quiet enough to listen to God the journey is more pleasant.

Rae, I love what you say about the connection between de-cluttering and staying focused. I find I also need to rid myself of negative and unhealthy relationships that wear me down and drain my spirit.

I understand on the relationship thing, I had to do that last year. I had a friend who was becoming toxic and I felt very strongly from God that I needed to end the relationship at that point. I try to remember to keep her in prayer and will go from there. It is hard but more and more I feel one needs to be careful as there are many who would try lead us away from our faith.

It has been so long since I've visited here. Nice to see everyone.
Rae~ Snail mail will be on its way to you soon.
I feel the same on simplifying and decluttering. Seems to be an ongoing mission here for me. I started with the seasonal things and I am hoping I can keep the momentum going.
Blessings to you all!

Hello everyone! My heart is heavy for our country so everyone please pray for our new President and leaders. I have never seen such bad behavior after a election and it makes me very sad. We all have people who lose elections but we accept it and make the most of it the best we can. If we don't like things be sure you vote. We can all write letters, make phones calls and have discussion with being hateful to those who may not agree with us. I hear so much about tolerance but it appears from those yelling the loudest it only pertains if you agree and that is truly a sad thing. Is it only free speech for some? Also free speech, not free yelling and screaming, no one listens to that.

Didn't mean to get on a soap box but it is sad the behavior going on from top officials and down the line. We live in a wonderful country and should not take that for granted. Many have died for our privileges and I pray that God will bless the USA and pray that we will bring back our Christian roots and leaders will make wise decisions for us all.

Agree Rae. I am embarrassed for our country and what others are watching here. And saddened too.

Rae... My hubby and I can't agree with you more. It is a fact free speech is only if you agree with them. If we try to discuss opposing views we get yelled out. The worst of it is, if you call yourself a Christian or a conservative you are labeled a terrorist and or a racist. The rioting and vandalism is inexcusable. I heard a woman on the TV refer to conservatives as Nazis and we need to be taken out. How narrow minded is that. We will meet you in prayer. Whether people like it or not this country was founded on Christian principles by God fearing men and women.

As we've been watching the news, all that comes to mind is Matthew 12:25:

"25 But Jesus knew their thoughts, and said to them: “Every kingdom divided against itself is brought to desolation, and every city or house divided against itself will not stand."

And 2 Thessalonians 8-12:

"8 And then the lawless one will be revealed, whom the Lord Jesus will overthrow with the breath of his mouth and destroy by the splendor of his coming. 9 The coming of the lawless one will be in accordance with how Satan works. He will use all sorts of displays of power through signs and wonders that serve the lie, 10 and all the ways that wickedness deceives those who are perishing. They perish because they refused to love the truth and so be saved. 11 For this reason God sends them a powerful delusion so that they will believe the lie 12 and so that all will be condemned who have not believed the truth but have delighted in wickedness."

And, Matthew 4:24:

"24 For there shall arise false Christs, and false prophets, and shall shew great signs and wonders; insomuch that, if it were possible, they shall deceive the very elect."

And 1 Corinthians 3:18-23

"18 Let no one deceive himself. If anyone among you thinks that he is wise in this age, let him become a fool that he may become wise. 19 For the wisdom of this world is folly with God. For it is written, “He catches the wise in their craftiness,” 20 and again, “The Lord knows the thoughts of the wise, that they are futile.” 21 So let no one boast in men. For all things are yours, 22 whether Paul or Apollos or Cephas or the world or life or death or the present or the future—all are yours, 23 and you are Christ's, and Christ is God's."

Yes, let us pray for sure... 'Time to delve into The Word now, more than ever, sisters. Keep the faith. Trust in Him. And... God bless us, every one.

Much love,

Nini

Hello Farmgirl Sisters,
I've been off the boards for a long while. Nice to come home and find a Christian thread with so many praying for our country. So, in political news, I am excited we finally have a new Supreme Court Justice.

How is everyone's Easter celebrations going? I am still contemplating during the Octave. Yesterday while praying the rosary it struck me so deeply what the Apostles must have felt when Jesus ascended. I became overwhelmed with sadness, loss and hope all at the same time and was left with a longing for heaven that I had never felt before. Just to think about being able to see Jesus face to face, I can hardly wrap my brain around it and I just can't stop thinking about it, what a miracle and mystery indeed. What is your heart contemplating right now?

Hello Christian farm girls! Been a long time since anyone posted so attempting to bring this back up. Hope all are doing well.

Felt lead to stop on this thread this morning, ladies we really need God and major prayer. Our schools are back in session and children need prayers for protection from a lot of the garbage they are going to be presented with and forced upon them. I fear I would be in trouble if I were still working at the school with the stuff they are pushing. Our country needs prayer and ladies Christians really need to be out there and not backing down. Too long we were quiet and lost a lot of rights.

Ok will try not to stomp too loud on my soapbox but I really have fear for what is coming.

Hey sisters!
Just wanted to pop in and say hello :) I am a very new Christian! Even though my father was a pastor and I was on the missions field with them for 2 years when I was younger, it took me a long time and a very roundabout way to come to my faith but I am so glad I did :)

Good morning Ladies. So glad you brought this back up Rae though it has been a while since I've really been involved in anything here. Some of you are aware that my dad passed away in August. Seems 4 years was a very short time to have been able to have him living with us. But I cherish it and the time I got to spend with him. He was ready to go home and it had been his prayer that the Lord would take him, though very difficult for those of us left behind.

I hope to be active here as much as time allows. Prayers for all of you my sisters.
