Do you want to see it? Imagine a beautiful hilly farm overlooking rice patches with no other house in sight. Small dirt houses built into the hills. Big fruit trees scattered around the property, each with a tyre swing gently blowing in the breeze. A huge fresh vegetable plot with adults and children collecting vegetables needed for dinner. John is over in the valley checking on the fish pond. The cows in the barn are mooing as they are milked by the girl that arrived the day before. She is giggling and squealing as she tried to grab the teet and shoot the milk into the jug. Her smile is triumphant as she gets her first complete stream in all on her own. She’ll be drinking that milk tonight and maybe even making some cheese with it tomorrow. After dinner we all sit around the fire with a guitar, singing and praising God and telling stories about our days. The piglets that were born, how many eggs the little kids collected, what we learned in school. All in all we are tired but so happy, content and in awe of the God that put the stars in the sky and still knows the number of hairs on each one of our heads.
Onto family life… yes Charlotte is almost at toilet training stage! Apart from being scared of her toilet and potty it is great. The other day I watched in awe and shock as she squatted on the deck and peed all by herself. Then she walked over to her pool, scooped up water in her cup and poured it over her pee. I’m still not sure what I think of this – but thank you very much Charlotte for cleaning up your mess?? Charlotte is growing and learning new things every day. She loves going to watch the cows in the fields near our house and collecting the eggs from our chickens. We are so blessed to call ourselves her parents.
Love the Sops
