I cannot figure out how to change the time on this blog, but I can assure you, I was not posting at 3 am. So, please bear with my lack of computer savvy until I can get my brother to help me figure this thing out. :) Thanks
Well, I have to keep this post short because I have to get out and milk the goats, but as I was checking my e-mail this morning I came across a news headline which blared "Clinton, Obama go on Attack in Pennsylvana Compagain Finale"-Democrats Hillary Rodham Clinton and Barack Obama questioned each other's character and readiness to be commander-in-chief in last minute television ads as the six week Pennslyvania primary campain steamed toward an uncertain conclusion on Tuesday" Great, "I am a better leader than you because I don't do this, this and this." Any five year old can give me that immature junk, constantly jabbing with the 'are you able to handle this responsibility?' and the answer comes back 'sure, we'll just put everyone on gonvernment run health care and we'll be fine'* You know, to be very frank neither of them have yet (to my knowledge) proven that they are fit to fill the bill of leadership. Micah 6:8 says, "He hath showed thee , O man, what is good, and what the Lord requireth of thee: surely to do justly, to love mercy, and to humble thyself, to walk with thy God." and in Matthew 20:26-28 we read, "But it shall not be so among you: but whosoever will be great among you. let him be your servant; and whosoever will be chief among you, let him be your servant: even as the Son of Man came not to be served, but to serve and give his life as a ransom for many." Hm, you figure it out.
Neither as of yet has either shown discernment in the issue of the Iraq war. The more I read about what's going on over there the more I am convinced that neither Clinton or Obama have stopped to take any thing into account other than, 'we gotta get our poor boys home'. Laides and gentlemen, as a Navy brat I understand the grief of missing my father (among other things) and believe me, I want our men home with their families, but, and I believe that they will be the first to tell you, we've got a job to finish up, and we are doing well right now. Well, I'll have to finish this another time, because I am late to milk the goats already.
I am the blessed wife of my dear husband, Jonathan and the mother of a precious little girl with #2 due in mid June. I am young and still have much to learn but I trust that my gracious Heavenly Father will continue to lead and teach me.
I rejoice in the priviledge to be a stay at home wife and mother and desire to share with others some of those life lessons I am learning and simple pleasures that God so richly blesses us with!
"Contemplations of a Farmer's Wife" was established as an attempt to communicate what I am learning in regard to family life and God's high calling for women, first as daughters and later as, Lord willing, wives and mothers. Obviously, I am merely a finite human being, with much still to learn :-) In a way, this blog is part of my journey as I seek to pursue Godly womanhood and share what I am learning with you, my readers! I hope you are encouraged by what you read.
Also, I am more than open to post suggestions, if you have any topic you are interested in hearing what I think or have learned, feel free to leave me a comment.
