1000 Gifts: On the farm



The splendor of a King, clothed in majesty,
let all the earth rejoice,
all the earth rejoice...

Amazed by His grace and overwhelmed by His goodness, I give thanks.

Looks like a lovely, peaceful place. I love farms and field trips with friends! And what's better is seeing God's goodness in it all! Wonderful list again, Heather.
We start up school today! 7 weeks to finish our year... say a prayer for us today? :)
God bless you and yours today and always!
