Life on the farm at The Garden Gate is filled with common daily life experiences that fill us with a goodness that overflows out of our heart and into all we do. "Farm Girl Wisdom" is an outward expression of my love of nature and all that is in it. My desire here is to show how God is in everything because He is Creator of all....
"You must love all that God has created, both His entire world and each tiny little sand grain of it, then your mind will open itself to an all embracing love." Fyodor Dostoyevsky

"Christ, the Blessed One", Tozer
Beautiful words to the Christian's ears...
Beautiful words to those that love the Lord...
Here was a devotion that I received awhile ago...
Take my yoke upon you, and learn of me... For my yoke is easy, and my burden is light. Matthew 11:29-30
feel great sorrow for those who read the Sermon on the Mount and then
conclude that Jesus was providing a word picture of men and women
comprising the human race. In this world, we find nothing approaching
the virtues of which Jesus spoke in the Beatitudes.
Instead of poverty of spirit, we find the rankest kind of pride. Instead of mourners, we find pleasure seekers.
of meekness, we find only arrogance, and instead of hunger after
righteousness, we hear men saying, "I am rich, and increased with goods,
and have need of nothing" (Revelation 3:17).
of mercy, we find cruelty. Instead of purity of heart, we encounter
corrupt imaginings. Instead of peacemakers, we find men quarrelsome and
resentful, fighting back with every weapon at their command.
said He came to release us from our sad heritage of sin. Blessed is the
sinner who finds that Christ's words are the Truth itself, that He is
the Blessed One who came from above to confer blessedness upon mankind!
You, Father, for Your open-armed invitation for Your children to cast
all of their worldly cares upon You. Lord, teach me how to trust You
more deeply." Tozer.
