We're entering our 3rd full week of living on the ranch! To be honest, I had to look at the calendar to check that because so much has happened. We're loving living at Freedom Ranch!
Move-in weekend was full of activity- paint, new floors, lots & lots of boxes and lots and lots of mud!! Since then we've been unpacking, organizing, hanging pictures, and we put gravel down--so thankfully... less mud! The children and pets love it here! And so do we!
We've had lots of snow this weekend. It's still snowing! Well, more like freezing rain now. We all played in it- hiked through the woods and built a snowman. The boys loved it. Well, it took Micah a little bit to start liking it. Yesterday he told Julia that we needed to vacuum the snow up. I could relate. It's pretty, but I'm ready for summer now!
Yesterday we moved Bella & 'Lil Bit over from the farm across the street to our ranch. And we did it in the snow with snow coming down in our faces! Zoe and I walked them over while Rich followed in Zoe's SUV so no cars would run us over. Fun experience- 'Lil Bit slid on the hill coming down the driveway, and so did I! Thankfully Bella didn't run over me. :) Julia was waiting in our lane to welcome them home.
A big thank you to Tim and Brenda from Black Pond Farm for taking good care of them for the past month and a half!
Bella and 'Lil Bit love it here, too. We have so much long grass in the pastures. They're having a feast!
This week we're bringing home a new little guy. Stay tuned for that excitement!
Sometimes I look around and just thank God that we get to live here. We're looking forward to sharing this place with so many people and bringing freedom to people's lives.
True freedom only comes by knowing Jesus Christ as our Lord and Savior. Do you know Him? He's real and has given His life for you, so you can be free. It doesn't matter what has happened in your past, or what you may or may not have done. The grace, mercy and forgiveness of Jesus are yours if you just choose to believe and receive.
Will you pray with me right now? It's very simple, but so profound. And it's the most important decision that you'll ever make in your life.
Pray this, "Dear Jesus, I believe that you are the Son of God. I believe that God raised you from the dead. I need you in my life, Jesus. I need freedom. Thank you for forgiving me. I receive you in my life right now. Amen."
If you prayed that today, we would love to talk with you! Please let us know! Reach out and send us a message from our website, on facebook or instagram or simply send us a text. We'll help you with the next steps in this new journey of Freedom!
