Contented Farmer

  The temps are still cold (17 with a windchill) but it is beautiful out.  The snow is again falling as I sit here in the kitchen typing.  I never get tired of the snow, extreme cold, yes, but not the snow. It does help that work for me is here at home so I do not have to travel unless I want or need to. The only outside thing I must do is tend to the animals and once I am suited up in coveralls, good boots and warm gloves, I am able to work outside for as long as needed.  I am a "contented farmer"  :)

"But godliness actually is a means of great gain when accompanied by contentment.  For we have brought nothing into the world, so we cannot take anything out of it either.  If we have food and covering, with these we shall be content."  1 Timothy 6:6-8 (NASB)

My youngest daughter and I both gasped at the lacey fence. God makes everything beautiful. Thanks for seeing and sharing.

You are welcome, thank you for all of your kind words. I took several shots to get this just right. Sometimes the camera just can't quite capture the "awe" of God's handiwork...
