Hey friends!!! How are things? We have been busy lately. (Nothing new there.) We are in our annual “Get everything done, the church folks are coming over.” mode. We are gearing up for sharing Independence on the farm.
Each year, on the Sunday night around the Fourth, our church people, and anyone else who wants to join, come to our little farm and we celebrate. We celebrate the freedom in Christ and the freedom in this country.
It’s such a sweet time and an honor to share our home with others. I love the way that some of our older ones join up in their lawn chairs and just visit. The grill gets fired up and the fellowship is sweet.
This year as we come together, we are a group of believers, that are holding onto each other. Our sweet pastor went to be with Jesus in April…and as a church…that he taught ever so well, we are all in this together. Fellowship seems more important than ever at this point, and the Mister and I don’t take that lightly. As we share our home this year…the main goal will be to provide as much balm as we can for broken hearts, all for the glory of God. Brother Hight…we sure do miss you.
I won’t leave you there, in the sadness, sweet readers. Our pastor loved to laugh and we all do too. We plan to eat hot dogs and make homemade ice cream. We plan to fellowship and ooh and aah over the babies. We plan to listen to a devotion and absorb what God has for our lives, and we plan to sing together on this little hillside farm. We plan to open our hearts in every way.
We will be sharing Independence on the farm, Lord willing…and the creeks don’t rise. 😉
