this past month working on the farm has been incredibly peaceful and, in a funny way, liberating.
every morning Kevin and I wake up early,
pack our monstrous lunches that hold us through our 12 hour days,
and suit up in our old jeans and flannels.
the drive to work is a highlight, as Kevin and I talk and read the bible and pray together.
we dream about our future going back to southern california in a few weeks.
as a confession, i’m so unsure of the future there is so much to pray into.
but that is exciting to me:)
we get to the ranch, and we spend the first hour greasing our tractors.
this is probably my least favorite part.
i’m not exactly a muscle woman so I literally have to give it my all to complete this task, haha!
then, I sit in a tractor for almost eleven hours and drive and chop straw.
Now, I’m sure the very mention of this monotony may put you to sleep,
but truly this uninterupted time has been a beautiful sanctuary for the imagination,
as I feel profoundly justified and liberated to just sit there and dream and pray.
lately we’ve been dreaming of where to live when we move back to Southern California.
I dream of an old house in an immigrant neighborhood.
With a big porch and room for us to host anyone that passes through.
a house that is filled with love and laughter and parties and
candles that burn and fill the room with a delicious aroma.
so i’ve been trying to pray boldly into that.
trusting that God is going to move in an epic way.
i’m excited to see what He’s up to in that department!
but on the farm, I get to dream because all I have is time:)
I love these farm sunsets…they inspire me.
and add to the mystery of this God who asks us to pray BIG and BOLD into our dreams.
What are you dreaming of lately?
