Sunday Afternoon Feels….

So we aren’t the only ones that work on this property.  There are 2 housing estates being built on either side of the farm both of which are part of the farm. So we have a number of workers working on the estates that use the farm as a thoroughfare.  Sunday we noticed that the mob of cattle were in one of the estates currently being built so it was all systems go to get over there and get them out.  !40 head of cattle wandering around the residential areas is not ideal!  My husband is a very capable horseman thank goodness!

Lead Us Not Into Temptation……

I don’t know about you but I am tempted every day.  Whether it’s to spend money I don’t have,  or lose my temper, be annoyed with my husband over stupid crap, eat what I don’t need to eat and so on.  I was watching Joyce Meyers the other day and this is what she says on a daily basis and so I am going to also!  Makes perfect sense!

Let Us Pursue Peace….

So I run a facebook page where I share information pretty similar to this blog just more of it. I share our daily lives on the farm, scriptures affirmation and anything that will help others in their walk with God.

Yesterday I had some woman attacking me for a post I made on introducing a new horse to our flock.  Now apparently to introduce in front of a steel gate was stupid in her eyes and that we were idiots and blah blah blah.  We have been doing this sort of thing our whole lives, my hubby had his first horse at 2, competed in many events as a youth and then rodeo in his adulthood. We are not new to horses, but she felt we were.  I didn’t go off at here even though that was my first instinct I just prayed for her, remembered God loves her just as much as me and maybe she really needs help. So I didn’t even delete the thread which other pages would have.

The thing I am trying to say is that we are coming together to pursue peace and love and to build each other up and edify each other, not tear each other down and the best way to combat that is by prayer.  As soon as I had prayed for her she stopped and I haven’t seen her since. I told her we loved her in Christ and we are there for her if she needed us, that would not have happened 6 months ago lol. But how can I expect God to help me if I am not prepared to help others. Tough lessons we get taught but worth it!

These are the photos that she was so offended by. Take note that my hubby was there the whole time and those gates are not dangerous to horses at all!

 

New Oil Company

Hi guys just thought I would share the news that I have changed oil companies.  I have joined Doterra because in Australia it is a better fit. Their rewards system is really good over here whereas Young Livings rewards system for Australia is really quite bad.  I love Young LIving oil but I must say that I am still hunting for the oil that gives me a really profound experience. I bought 3 roller blends off Doterra yesterday and all 3 oils effected me straight away so I am sold already.

I will be changing my cover image and the oils info this week to reflect the new company so bear with me on that.  I will also share more oil info because I really feel like we need to know about these oils in a more hands on way.  So stay tuned and watch this space!

Have a great day guys!

God’s Grace Abounds…..

So for the past few weeks my youngest daughter has been getting threatening messages from the girlfriend of her brother-in-law. Apparently, these days you can’t be friends with the opposite sex even if they are family. This other girl is quite clearly not had a good upbringing.  Her family has been implicated in some pretty serious drug crimes and is not the type of family her brother in law should be involved with but that’s a whole other story!

So my daughter has been ignoring this rubbish for weeks, she won’t get involved in childish crap but a few days ago she received another quite threatening message, but this time my daughter decided it’s time to get mum involved. See my kids won’t let me get involved in their crap because I am waaaaay too passionate when it comes to the safety and well being of my kids. Anyhooooo she forwarded the message and was like I have had enough mum. My first instinct of course was to find this girl and beat the crap out of her! Of course my second instinct is the one I followed, I messaged this girl and told her it was the last message she was going to send or I would take it to the police and then get my solicitors involved.  Well that really scared her and she told my daughters brother in law that she would stop if we don’t go to the police. Mission accomplished and I didn’t have to behave like a crazy person and stoop to their level.

HOWEVER, God was not finished with this!  He told me to pray for this girl!! I was like hmmmmm then the scripture, “But I tell you love your enemies and pray for those who persecute you” Matt 5:44, came to mind. I was like ooooooof course Lord and I went and prayed and I can honestly say that prayer was led by the Holy Ghost, it was so different to how I usually pray, it’s like I KNEW what to say already!

We have not had any more trouble from this girl from that minute forth. God took care of it and it’s over. God is so good and it just proves the scripture, “pray always with all prayers and supplications” Eph 6:18 does not just mean at prayer time. It means ALL the time!  God reminded me that how can I expect to receive grace from Him if I didn’t give it to others?  And I felt nothing but compassion for this girl that threatened my daughter. Now THAT is only by the Grace of God!
