Blessings that I cannot see

Hello Farm Friends,

Well, I tricked the animals this week…I didn't even go to the market and everyone behaved themselves! Imagine that!

You know that old saying that if a tree fell in the woods with no one around would it make a sound? Well, of course we all know it would, there just wouldn't be anyone there to notice it. This weekend at church we sang the words…"thank you for the blessings that I cannot see" and it made me wonder just how many things…blessings, are going on around me that I for some reason am unable to see. I suppose there are some things that I just physically cannot see because I don't know where to look or even what I am looking for, but more often I think there are plenty of blessings around me that I am just too busy, too frazzled, too consumed to see. The beauty of a butterfly, a turtle living in our water trough, a killdeer nest in our potato rows, a hawk nest in a tree on our ditch bank, earthworms, grapevines that I thought were dead from last years drought…these and a few hundred other things God has allowed me to "see" in the past few weeks as I have made an effort to slow down and at least look where I am going. To slow down and at least listen to what my little boy is trying to show me in this wide world. To take a step back and give thanks for my sweet little family and their safety. Thank you God for showing me the blessings that I could not see without You! Have a great week!

God Bless You all!
Love
Julie
Franklin Farmers Market
Rocky Glade Farm will not be at the Franklin Market this weekend. We are between cool season and warm season crops! Don't worry…all the good stuff is just around the corner! We will keep busy putting up hay and working our livestock…see you week after next!


Need a Fridge?
We have two refrigerators for sale. Both are 4-5 years old, 20.5 cubic feet, freezer on top, white in color, we have the manuals and both are clean and in great shape. We have an ice maker to go with one of the units, but it is not installed. Both are very clean and have been used to store eggs or vegetables in here on the farm during their lifetime. We are asking 200.00 a piece. If you are interested and would like to see photos, please email us jvaughn@rockygladefarm.com. Thanks so much!

Photo of the Week
Jim was bushhogging one of our fields close to the ditch bank when he ran upon a rabbit's nest. A hawk swooped down and caught a rabbit, gave the bunny to another hawk and went back for "seconds". If you know anything of nature…hawk's DON'T share, unless there is a good reason to. Jim searched and found the hawk's nest with two baby hawks inside. We all have enjoyed watching them grow. When folks ask about the benefit package of being a farmer this ranks right up there at the very top of our list…nature close up and REAL!
