Hay... that's cute!

No, I can't spell but that is actually not the problem today. LOL We woke up to a field covered in hay bails this weekend. A neighbor asked if he could hay our field and since we have no tractor and it becomes a fire hazard if you don't harvest it we gladly accepted! They look so cute... like little packages all over the field!

My little farmer Ben could not have looked any cuter sitting on a hay bail in his Cartharts... adorable... absolutely adorable! As if living in a John Deere add weren't cool enough... he has to go be that cute. I am so blessed!


I know everyone (ok, not everyone... but a lot of you! LOL) thought that we would be miserable out here but we love it. I cannot tell you how nice it is to see the sunset over the mountains, sit out under the stars, make brownies with the eggs you just got out of the chicken coop 5 min. ago or having to close the window in the evening because the crickets are so loud instead of the neighbors next door fighting again. You just get to see so much more of God here. There is more of his handiwork than man's everywhere you look and I am so grateful everyday that we get to live here.

Well I was going to point out your glaring mis-spelling of "Hay" but I finally figured it out. Go me. ;-)

I really think there is something to what you said about seeing God's handiwork everywhere around you. I think this is the reason major cities and heavily populated urban areas trend the way that they do, they see more of man's handiwork than God's. Something gets lost in the equation when you don't recognize God for who He is, the creator and sustainer of the universe!
