Relationships

I wrote this over at my other blog Pushing Forward with Grace but felt moved to share it here since we do have a Grace section! I hope you enjoy it.  🙂 

I created this graphic after going through session five of the bible study Sip, Savor, and Drink Deeply by Deb Burma.  You can purchase the study a few different places if you are interested.

Now that I am finished with it I would recommend it to anyone, even if you do not drink coffee.  It includes recipes, craft ideas, tidbits about coffee drinks, and a great many other things about God’s Word. Lucky for me I was able to walk through it with a group of other ladies but it could easily be done on your own!

Now back to that graphic and why I created it for myself.  I wanted to have easy access for a reminder from areas of the Bible.  Some of the relationships in my life are stagnet, not comfortable, flourishing, open, comfortable, or have just gone by the wayside. But today I’d like to talk about one of the most important relationships I have in my life.

The one with my spouse, my husband of 14 years.

When this session was presented before me it was a good thing.  At the time I wasn’t so sure because things were stressful in that very important relationship I mentioned before.  No need to air my dirty laundry or share more than my hubs is comfortable with.  Just know that reading through creating something in me to focus on changing my responses.  I’m still a work in progress and so is he.  To date, I have not been able to sit down and visit with him about this session.  The farmer is too busy and it’s okay, we will when time allows. I have it on the top of our “to do” list!  But I see the help it has given our relationship already, without him evening knowing what it’s about!

When I walked out of the Monday night bible study the night we did this session I saw things differently. One thing I realized is that it’s a duty as a Christian to have those difficult conversations with others.  Am I scared?  Yep.  Will I pray on it?  Yep.  Have I strayed from my faith before?  Yep.  Do I still struggle with things today?  Yep. Have I repented?  Yep. Am I forgiven?  Yep.

Psst….. you can too.  Jesus loves you.

Now, feel free to save the graphic or print it off for personal use.  I plan too.

Grace is a gift,

Julie

Milo/Grain Sorghum Harvest – 2017

We began our milo harvest on September 20, 2017 on the field we call Farvers.  It was irrigated grain sorghum. We have 110 acres of grain sorghum to harvest this year. We had just finished up our corn harvest the day before. Milton had to change the combine header and make a few adjustments before heading to the field.

Our daughter drove me out to the field so we could give Dad some supper.

 He stopped for a bit to visit with her and catch up on our days.

I was able to get some instagram video and good photos while in the field.

I headed back home by foot while PV rode in the combine for a bit.  I have been working on exercise and getting healthier since January of this year.  You can read about it on my other blog Pushing Forward with Grace if you care to.  PV drove the “mule” home and of course beat me although I started way before her!

This is a shot of the grain sorghum that was harvested from this field. I think it looks so very pretty!  I love the colors of milo throughout it’s growing season!

Don’t forget to follow us on one of the following as we post more there than on blog posts!  Feel free to ask questions too!
