    is your faith evident?

    where-poppies-blow-3

    Recently I was quite disturbed by an Instagram post by a photographer I respect and admire. This woman, who says she’s a believer, posted something of this nature: “I’m a Christian. I love Jesus. But let’s admit it, I cuss a little. I read questionable romance novels. And I want to shoot your wedding no matter what your relationship is and whatever you identify as.” (Paraphrased.)

    Excuse me?

    A Jar of Fireflies: A Summer Short Story

    a-jar-of-fireflies

    Hey guys! I have something a little different for you all today…I’m releasing another short story! This one I wrote in one sitting after being inspired by a picture, and hardly did any editing…some things just happen like that. I love this story. It’s one of the favorites I’ve ever written! Since it’s so short, I’m not going to publish it on Amazon but just post it in my blog post. I hope you all enjoy!

    Feeding the Chickens

    where-poppies-blow-4

    I sure seem to be doing a fair amount of farm life posts now, don’t I? Actually, the pictures for this post and the last two I took all in the same day! Anyway, after we milked the cow, I decided to follow Eden feed the chickens, and oh my, the light was GORGEOUS! It was exactly how I love it and ahhhh, everything was so pretty. So heh heh, more pictures!

    How to Milk a Cow

    where-poppies-blow-10

    Hey, you guys! I thought that it would be fun to write up a tutorial on how to milk a cow, since we have one and I’ve never gone into detail before! The other day my Granddaddy was gone and I was supervising my cousins milk so I decided to bring along my camera and take pictures. I got the idea to make a tutorial out of it, so I hope you all enjoy (and learn something)!

    If you ever get a cow, now you know where to go. 😉

    Growing: May

    where-poppies-blow-35

    Hey you guys!

    Things are growing so fast! We’ve been having such lovely weather out here on the farm and AGH, everything is sprouting up! Yesterday morning I went out real early – well, early for me – to try to get pictures of everything before the sun hit. But I wasn’t fast enough, so a good of these pics are sunny! But that’s okay. Here’s what is growing in the garden right now…

    How do you wait?

    where-poppies-blow-20

    I once read a story of a woman who anticipated her life away. She couldn’t wait to be 16 so she could drive. Then she got a little older, and she looked forward to graduating from college. In college, she met a guy and she couldn’t wait to marry him. Then she couldn’t wait to have kids. When they were babies, she looked forward to the day when she could send them to school so she could have a little freedom. Once they were in school, she couldn’t wait until they were older, more self-sufficient. And then she anticipated the day when they would go to college and leave the nest so she could have time again for her husband and herself. After they spent part of their retirement traveling, she anticipating each next stop, they came home and settled down. She couldn’t wait for grandkids. Years passed. She spent her time with them by anticipating each next step.

    Recently: photos & a life update

    where-poppies-blow-19

    Hey you guys! So as you might have noticed, it’s been around 11 days since my last post. Which isn’t too bad, but definitely: it’s been a little while. The reason? LIFE. So I thought I’d write a quick (note: rambling) life update and post some of my recent pics. :) Enjoy!
