This decision to go private has made us reflect on the reason we blog in the first place. It's not just so we can show off our beautiful children (although that would be good enough, wouldn't it ;-), or that we assume anyone really wants a view into our pretty simple, laid-back lives. The purpose for our blog is to exemplify Christ and prove that our amazing God still uses ordinary, ill-equipped people to do extraordinary things. And guess what - He even uses those who weren't 'born under the pew.' My dear hubby was 40 and I was 36 when we came to know the Lord, and we had a lot of catching up to do. We were a long way from looking like Christ (still are!), but we strive to claim the abundant life He has given us through His sacrificial death and resurrection, even in the times of turmoil and uncertainty. I guess that's why it's such a difficult decision for us to lock the blog. Many of you have 'stumbled' upon us and chosen to hang around - thank you! Many have been dear friends for a long time and have ridden the roughest waves with us - thank you! Many we would have never met but for the miracle of adoption - thank you! If God has spoken to even one heart through this blog, then we've served our purpose. We will continue to seek and follow, and you are welcome to come along for the ride ... and to Him be the glory!
This is why we are so busy! Mr. Greenthumb is raising some amazing corn! He did take time to pose for me at 6:30 a.m. on the sorter!
That's a load of corn. It has to get from the field, to this trailer, to the bags, to the rig, to the customer all in the same day!
Sortin' before dawn. Beautiful sight!
Our 'boss' being cheesy for Mom! Just load the corn, dude.
I tried to get a picture of Mr. Greenthumb cutting corn very early.
That's what I'm talkin' about!
