I just read my friend Barbie’s post about Abiding.   Ah, just reading her post stirred such a longing in my heart.

I missed church yesterday because it was my Sunday to feed my parents and our parking lot on our farm was already filling up at 11:25am.

Sigh … I missed being with my church family and I missed having corporate worship.

This has just been a strange weekend on our farm.  I am definitely going to anoint our land again today.  People just seemed to be on edge.   One of our employees caught me walking through our “midway” and said, “We have a situation here.”  There was a woman cursing out her husband.  LOUDLY.  She chose to do this right in the area where our youngest children played.  Her own kids stood around and watched her.  The young employees didn’t know what to do.  I decided she was too “hot” to try to escort out, so I walked over and stood right beside of the couple.  I began to pray in the Spirit quietly and the woman immediately stomped away.   I don’t know what was going on with people this weekend, but I now know I must cover our farm in more prayer.

Yesterday morning our phone rang before we could get out of bed.  One of my husband’s best friends died.  He had been battling cancer for some time, but this sudden death was unexpected.  They have asked my husband to speak at his funeral.  Please pray for him as he speaks, but mostly for this man’s family.

Back to Barbie’s post.  I miss having quiet time with the Lord.  I feel pulled in so many directions, but I hunger for Him.

John 15:4
Dwell in Me, and I will dwell in you. [Live in Me, and I will live in you.] Just as no branch can bear fruit of itself without abiding in (being vitally united to) the vine, neither can you bear fruit unless you abide in Me.

I want to abide in Him! Just one month of increased busyness and I feel on edge … dry.



Have a blessed day everyone! I pray each of us have time to abide in His presence today.
