This post has absolutely nothing to do with farm life. It has to do with finding a place that soothes your soul. Several weeks ago, I went to the beach with my youngest daughter, her husband, and my two granddaughters. Bill doesn’t care about going to the beach so I had not been in years. When I was growing up, I went every summer.
We had a fabulous time. I had not realized how much I needed the sun, sand and sea. There is just something about the ocean that’s good for your soul. Laying there and letting that sun soak right through your insides, warms you up and burns away every bad thought. Experiencing this with my little granddaughters made it twice as good.
This post is going to have something to do with farm life after all. Of course it is. Since I’ve been home, I’m reminded that living on this farm is good for my soul, too. Sitting on the deck and watching the sheep graze is about as peaceful as you can get in this life. Seeing flowers and vegetables grow from tiny seeds I planted fills me with good feelings all the way down to my dirty, barefoot toes. And having the dogs to love on, the eggs to gather. Need I say more? I’m thankful to God for providing this soul-soothing farm for Bill and I to be a part of. We love the farm life! It sooths our souls.
