As you may imagine, moving from the city to the farm was quite an adjustment. Grocery store trips now encompass an entire morning instead of a thirty-minute errand. Paying attention to the gas gauge is actually important when the nearest gas station is more than ten miles away (I say this from experience). And meeting people, that is the biggest challenge of all. Not for a lack of wonderful people, simply a lack of numbers. And while those challenges are real and affect our daily life, I think that the beauty and freedom of living in the country has won me over. I love that I can freely send the kids outside; I love that the girls can tag along with Dad while he works; and I love that we can have pets and they don’t have to be inside our house! Whether you live in the city or the country, we share a common truth- being outdoors is good for the soul. It’s quieting, comforting and stirring all at once. It reminds us that there is something, or rather Someone, who is bigger and better and more powerful. So whether you are working in an office or at home or on a farm, find the time to get outside today! Your body and soul will thank you! And now, a few pictures to remind us that it won’t always be this cold!
