A moment alone with my pals

A moment alone with my pals

November 11, 2013

   We finished getting the sugarwood hauled and stacked. The wood shed has only one row left to go. That place I will cut some fast burning slab wood for times when I need a quick “pick-me-up”…in the heat department.

   I am so very happy to have the woodshed filled. It is a relief. The weather is turning bad as I write. Cold rain pelts the window and snow is forecasted for later tonight. All the split, chunk and round wood is now stacked and curing under the metal roof…did I say I was happy? 😮

   As we were loading the wood, I had a chance to daydream. It was as if I was alone in the woods. I was looking at the park like setting we have now created. A project that started last February when I cut the crooked, undesirable, cull trees from the little sugar maple grove.

   I believe this will become one of my most favorite places on my farm. The trees will soon grow large and shady. The branches will stretch and provide a quiet place to sit and reflect. It will be much like a church. A quiet place, filled with life, where God touches everything in sight.
