This is a wonderful perspective. ❤️🌱I know. You're not suppose to put your dirt on Facebook. But here I go...
Looking at the floors today I found myself a little frustrated at the daily dirt that seems to come out of no where. And then, something stopped me.
This dirt didn't come "out of no where".
This dirt was carried in on the boots of a man who works sun up to sun down to take care of me, his animals, his land, our machinery. A man who asks very little in return.
This dirt came in on the hands, pants, and feet of grandchildren who are exploring their world to find their way, their purpose, and their God.
I carried this dirt in with potted plants, eggs from the chicken yard, honey from the hives and fresh produce from the garden and orchard that feeds us every day.
This dirt crawled in on four paws of our cats and dogs, who every day are helping us learn and relearn about responsibility, love, and loyalty.
This dirt came in from out there. Out there on our farm, the farm that for some crazy reason God has blessed us with. The farm that feeds us, spiritually, literally and figuratively, every single day. The farm that we use to feed others.
I imagine there are places to live with less dirt. And I know there are people who live with less dirt, maybe even people who live with no dirt.
But after thinking about it, I think I'll stay right here and just be thankful. Thankful for all this dirt... ...
