Books on the Stack at the Farm
Parable Treasury, by Liz Curtiz Higgs:
so this is ridiculous. Our kids grew up on these parable stories from Liz Curtis Higgs. Hands down favourites that they asked me to read to them a million times. And literally: More than 1 million of these parable stories have been sold — so there’s the proof: These are classics. Childhood is made of the stuff of these wondrous stories, one for each eason — And now they’ve been compiled into one gorgeous, huge, padded treasury book — for $8.79. How is that even possible?
Any child you’d like to have a gift for a birthday, a holiday, or any “I just love you” day — buy a stack of these to have on hand. I promise you: Kids will absolutely love you — and your wallet will be thrilled.
aren’t they absolutely darling? and then? then they go ahead & play the track from “Up” —
complete with Carl’s tennis-ball cane, the “Adventure Book” and even a “Squirrel!” reaction from the family dog.

okay, so this bride got brave & cancelled her wedding at the last minute — (these things happen)
you know, there really are heroes & angels & glory around us everywhere, you know?
a face, a hand, and a heart that stayed… you have gotta watch this
just….for every single one of us, no matter what: amazing grace…
… behind closed doors & behind brave smiles, there’s a whole bunch of us marching on private battles nobody knows about, climbing hard mountains that nobody sees, wrestling tough things that nobody has any idea about. But us? We do hard & holy things.
We stay in play. We stay in the game. We stay in Him. Because the really mattering part? The mattering part is that:
Blessed is the one who perseveres & does the hard things.
Tough times never last but those who hang on tight to God always do.
That’s all for this weekend, friends.
Go slow. Be God-struck. Grant grace. Live Truth.
Give Thanks. Love well. Re – joy, re- joy, ‘re- joys’ again
