Finally Home!

This has been a dream of mine for quite sometime, to start a blog such as this, a blog for country folk. Farmers, ranchers, full time, part time, or just wishing they were! Makes no difference, none at all. Over the last four years I’ve blogged and had a very good readership. As the years went by the pull, or the call to go in this direction has been strong, very strong.

I don’t care what denomination a person is in, if any. I don’t care if a person never attended a church in their life. Jesus loves them and they are welcome here. Now this blog is written by a farmer/rancher, a beef cow guy. And besides raising the cow calf part of the outfit I keep steers and fatten them up too. Plus the raising of replacement heifers. The breeds we raise here are Black Angus and Herefords, Horned Herefords. We raise all the feed for the whole herd on any given year except for a few recent drought years that hit this area hard. But I’m believing that this year and for many years to come there will be no need for hay being bought and all will go well again!

So as time goes by this is where I’ll be settling in. Hopefully it’ll just be a laid back place where farm and ranch combines with faith in a risen Saviour. Shortly, if all goes as planned I’ll be retiring a couple blogs that I’ve had for a few years and going mostly full time here. This will also be an on line extension of our rural based farm and ranch ministry that we are setting up. news will be here and happenings, but mostly just thoughts and conversation.

Folks in the rural areas need Jesus too, and so many are not going to step foot in any established church. It is our desire to reach many of those that are left behind. To bring the love of Christ to those who have never experienced it! To those outside the walls!
