Stack on the Farm
“Always put each other first: each other’s needs, wants, and desires.
Making your spouse happy will in turn make you happy.”
“Leave your mark on the world.
The residue you leave, will be like layers of love leading you, your family, friends, and neighbors to a place called home for generations to come.” I love this book!
“We can get so busy taking care of life that we forget to take care of love.”

… choked me up… what we’ve been praying together as a family this week
Even if You don’t…
Okay! The rest of this week?! We’re going after JOY!
Not because we have it all together or not because it’s all going to go perfect, but simply because: Choosing an ATTITUDE of GRATITUDE is how we KEEP CHOOSING JOY!
Because: Gratefulness is not what you feel AFTER times of joyfulness — Gratefulness is what you have to CHOOSE to GET to times of joyfulness.
The bottom line is: Being grateful IS WHAT MAKES YOU joyful.
Gratitude in our circumstances — is what changes our circumstances.
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
Share Whatever Is Good.
