Just a little team work will do

We have been blessed beyond means in this last year and it just keeps on coming. We finally got slowed down enough to get the horses out for some potato digging and a little harrowing on the side. There is no better place for us than right here, we want to honor Christ in all we do and we are so thankful that HE has blessed us enough to let us be in this place at a young age. 1st Corinthians 9:10 "...this is written, that he that ploweth should plow in hope and that he that thresheth in hope should be partaking of his hope". 

 what a magnificent animal the horse is

 we hitched 3 abreast for kicks, and since Delilah is really a Jezebel we had to keep a spotter on the outside to keep her in check.

 Luke 9:62 "And Jesus said unto him, no man, having put his hand to the plough, and looking back, is fit for the kingdom of God"

2Corinthians 12:9 "And He said unto me, my grace is sufficient for thee: for my strength is made perfect in weakness. Most gladly therefor will I rather glory in my infirmities, that the power of Christ may rest upon me."
