I have treasured the words of His mouth,
more than my necessary food." Job 23:12

I think often about how I live my life for Christ. I want so very badly with every grain of my being to live life for only him. Although there are so many beautiful creations, wonderful feelings, and pristine landscapes.......they all pale in comparison to the thought of bowing before my maker.

I cry to think of him saying 'Leanne...my daughter,my faithful servant'

Come, Lord Jesus, come.

I went for a walk to the back of the farm last evening and decided to take some pictures. It is so peaceful back there. The barn kitties came out to greet me and stretch their long, lean paws and the cows sauntered over to stick their tongues out at me. There is a long dirt path that leads to the back fields and it has two worn tire tracks from years of tractor treads (and footprints from other admirers, I suppose) . I walked along one of the tracks, trying to avoid the long scratchy grass and made my way to the rolling fields of grain. It was warm and breezy, the sun was setting and the clouds were sliding across the sky. What a beautiful time to ponder life's ponderables.

The peonies on the front lawn have decided to grow flower heads so large that they bow down to the ground. Bowing before their creator, not proud and pompous with their bright, sweet blooms, but rather seeming humble and grateful to be adorned with such beauty.

I live on a Jersey farm in Ontario, where the big brown beauties live right next door. There are green rolling fields surrounding us and a barn in the backyard. Somewhere I never thought I would end up, and now, somewhere I could never leave.

I have 2 children...G (2) and A (8 months) and a wonderful husband, D. We have been married 4 1/2 years now and will be celebrating our 5th in October.

Life is so fleeting.... I thank God for putting me where I am to enjoy his wonderful creation. I experience a life here unlike anywhere else. The sunsets, seasons, and scenery. It's truly Gods pallette.
