May Journal | Letters from the Homestead– is a once a month letter taken from my journal and shared with you.
“It is not the bees touching of the flower that gathers honey, but her abiding for a time upon the flower that draws out the sweet. It is not he that reads most but he that meditates most that will prove the choicest, sweetest, wisest and strongest Christian. “- Thomas Brooks
If I could bottle up the smell of the spring rain for you, I would. As I sit here writing to you the thunder claps outside my window and the tap- tap- tap of the spring rain crescendos as the spring birds happily sing the joy of another day; a gift from their maker.
This rain is exactly what the landscape needed. For as the storm drifts away the sun is left in the skies and the drops on the grasses are a beauty to observe. They look like crystals in a vibrant bowl of green.
May brings life, happiness and colour all around me. Hardly a day passes without a new bud in bloom or a migratory bird returning. Planting season has begun as between the rains I plant a berry bush here and a fruit tree there. The hens happily peck away and seem almost as cheerful as me for the return of the spring.
Helmer and Hayna our rabbits, absolutely love dandelions and feast away on them throughout the day. I’m thankful for the compost they provide for my vegetable beds and can’t wait to finish seeding and planting.
A fragrant blossoming scent fills the air and the lilac bush begins its bloom. I simply must collect some for the indoors.
What beauty surrounds me, what feast of colours. From the birds, to the plants, to the trees to the flowers.
The heavens declare the glory of God and the firmament showeth His handiwork. Day unto day uttereth speech and night unto night showeth knowledge. Psalm 19: 1-3
So I hope this letter finds you well and come rain or shine that you will rejoice in the day that the Lord has made.
Until next time,
