My Favorite Things

Happy Sunday, everyone. I hope you’re getting a bit of downtime to relax with family and friends over this long memorial weekend.

My family, we’re doing a bit of both. Yesterday, I was overjoyed to wake up without a care in the world as all 3 children had spent the night with Abuela and Papa so that Gabe and I could hit the town for an evening. We had such a wonderful time, engaged in great conversation at a new brewery in town called Exile. Their local craft brews are just what this mama needed after a long week filled in homeschooling, horseback lessons, baseball games, home made meals, and everything in between.

After our lazy morning, we filled our Saturday by picking up the kids, hitting the farmers market, and working on our homestead.  Nehemiah cleaned up the new chicks’ brooder, Gabe worked on the hen house by separating their run so that we can start planting grasses and weeds and alternating them within those areas (I’ll explain more about my idea on this later), and I worked in the gardens, mounding potatoes, watering, and sowing new seeds. It always feels great to sleep after a hard days work on an urban homestead; however, the work never seems to be done. Let’s get to my favorite things.

Below are a few of my favorite links from this past week

Favorite Verse of the Week

For to me, to live is Christ, and to die is gain. Phillipians 1:21

I’ve been reading this book by Beth Moore. The life of Paul just fascinates me. His sincere love for Christ that he would willingly die knocks me off my feet. That faith, that love, is what I pray for everyday.

    I feel you when it comes to Paul! Philippians 3:8 has been my life’s verse since high school, but since then I’ve expanded it to include more context… “But whatever were gains to me I now consider loss for the sake of Christ. What is more, I consider everything a loss because of the surpassing worth of knowing Christ Jesus my Lord, for whose sake I have lost all things. I consider them garbage, that I may gain Christ and be found in him, not having a righteousness of my own that comes from the law, but that which is through faith in Christ—the righteousness that comes from God on the basis of faith. I want to know Christ—yes, to know the power of his resurrection and participation in his sufferings, becoming like him in his death, and so, somehow, attaining to the resurrection from the dead.” Such a fantastical truth that I hope to always strive for in the Spirit!

    What a beautiful lettuce garden… the picture immediately caught my attention as my garden goes to cover crop. I can’t wait to try your rhubarb french toast!
