Tuesdays Unwrapped - New Life

There is a family we have joined into a covenant with; to walk together, sharing our struggles and our victories, our rejoicing and our mourning, to hold each other accountable to the life God has called us to. This is both the hardest and yet the most rewarding type of relationship.

Yesterday we were blessed to gather, for prayer, fellowship, support, food, encouragement and time to simply love each other.

We blessed new land they have purchased as their farm continues to expand. This ten year transplant from the big city loved every moment of visiting with this year's calves and their mamas as they came jogging over to savour a treat of chopped grain and minerals.

I had the chance to inhale the scent of new life and thawing ground. In that moment, the Lord reminded me that even in the midst of change, turmoil and uncertainty I can rejoice in the truth that some things just are.

Cows are cows. Land is land. Friends are friends. And God is God.

Know this: God, your God, is God indeed, a God you can depend upon. He keeps his covenant of loyal love with those who love him and observe his commandments for a thousand generations. Deuteronomy 7:9 The Message

I love that thought...some things just are. And I agree with you about relationships that are most rewarding often being the hardest. It sounds like your two families have something very special.
