My first day at the farm

Ah strawberries,  good juicy sweet, summer in your mouth.  Not your average store bought but a fresh one from a local farm.  There is nothing like it.  This is one of the many things that will be in my share from the CSA farm I am working at this summer. I started to do my work share yesterday.  Hard work, good work, achey work, God's work.  I loved every minute of it. Working the land, to feed my family.  That is all I needed to keep me going.  Yesterday I planted seedlings of broccoli, brussel sprout, and cabbage.  Then I weeded for two hours!  But it just flew by because I was weeding, not spraying toxic chemicals but weeding the parsnips.  We had to make sure they didn't get choked off by the weeds so we could have a beautiful long white carrot like root vegetable that I love.  That is why it wasn't so hard for me to do.  Working for a share of food is a labor of love, love for your family, for the land, for myself.  Yes I am sore today but a good sore.  Beats any workout!

Namaste Summer

Ah summer.  We are, as usual going to be busy.  We have many trips and vacations planned.  We love to give our children experiences, life long memories they will cherish.  The kids and I start out going to Camp at Pilgrim Center in lovely Green lake.  I love it there, and so does my oldest as he has been going to camp since he was in 2nd grade.  I am going to Mom and me camp with the littles.  My two youngest.  It will be something very wonderful for us.  My wonderful husband Christian(holding up to his namesake) will be on the mission trip with the teens from our church.  Even though I will deeply miss him I know its good for the soul to do unto others.
The God within me salutes the God within you- Namaste.  I say it all the time.  Namaste puts love into a greeting.  It reminds us of our own divinity.  We are all one with God.  Everything about us is.  When I doubt heavenly existance I have to remember that.  God has always been here.  We don't go to see divinity in heaven because we never have been without Divinity.  Remembering we all have divinity helps us to overcome and be one with all humanity, with God.
