In the Stillness of the Soil is Growth —- Tuesday, May 26, 2020

The corn is growing might nicely

Terry just finished cultivating all the many, many rows, giving the little baby corn a fighting chance.

One more field to plant—more than likely alfalfa or grass or a mix of the two.

What We Have Been Doing —- Sunday, May 24, 2020

We finished up hauling all the much-needed soil/dirt

Gradually, the new ditch bank and soon to be farm road started to take place

Blade work with the tractor and shovel work with … the SHOVELS!

Done!

And all the while—keeping the irrigation going.  Terry is standing on the new road.  Pretty nice!

Brilliant Shards of Glowing Light — Thursday, May 21, 2020

I must announce—-BOOMER IS TRULY BETTER!!!  YAY!  He slept well, he is breathing much, much better.  His nose is the same equal size on both sides and he LOVES HIS FOOD!

Then for the very first time in a very long time, he wanted to GO irrigate!

The wind was terribly strong, but he still wanted me to put him up on the four-wheeler—so, of course, I couldn’t turn him down. 🙂

Then on my FaceBook page, another wonderous gift appeared

“I know you love rainbows.” Cheri Schwartz-Harder wrote.  “I had to send you this one from my backyard yesterday.
We had an epic 1 1/2 inches of rain in just a few hours and a thunderstorm that was awesome. Then right before sunset, looking East, this appeared. ❤️”

There is was a flaming magical rainbow over their ranch— filling the whole sky!

Music in the form of a billion little drops of light!

Thank you, ever so much, each and every one of you for caring and being there.

My heart is full.

Your friend,

Linda

The Glimmer of Healing —- Wednesday, May 20, 2020

Gradually, Boomer is healing.  The very strong medication seems to have worked, although, he is still exhibiting some signs of breathing trouble

Now his old bones are refusing to move comfortably—I have something for arthritis, which I hope works

I watch him carefully all the time —trying not to let despair creep into me like an early morning mist

Wait! I said to myself….What is there, right by the tire!?!?

A HEART ROCK!

I picked it up and took it home. When I washed it off I saw that the heart-rock was a tad worse for wear…a series of chips on the corner

A big chip on the other side

Still a gift of love from the Universe to me.

Peace and love and hope and concern are oftentimes fraught with worry,

Boomer and I will take everything one day at a time.

Thank you so much, once more, for all your thoughts, concerns, and prayers.  My hope is Boomer Beaglie Brown will get back to his joyful little self; I will do whatever I can to help him get there.

That and pray.

The Sun, the Rain, and a Healing — I Hope — Tuesday, May 19, 2020

I must admit, that I have had fear for Boomer’s life riding in waves through my heart

I KNOW he is elderly and the time is growing short, but…

Still…then after beseeching the heavens and My God and Your God and the God of all this world,

I knew I could move forward, because of the medication, Boomer’s will to live, and the fact I asked for the power of collective prayer—peace filled my heart.

Opening my email, another glorious rainbow, from the Black Forest in Colorado…shouted—

Hope!

Thank you, each and every one!

Linda

 

 

The Power of Believing —- Monday, May 18, 2020

Through the power of collective prayer, the antibiotics and gifts of hope,

We are starting to see huge improvements with Boomer and his nose

Once more, from this marvelous world of Blog Friends where love, Friendship, and real Hope lives my email opened up to a delightful gift.

Asta sent me a rainbow from Sweden.

Dear Linda, here is a rainbow for you! It was the early evening after a day with rain and humidity. Suddenly the evening sun broke through and was shining on the lakeshore opposite us. And there it was- a perfect end of the rainbow mirroring itself on the water 😊

If you want to publish it is ok-it is your rainbow!
All the best to you, Terry, Boomer, and Mindy!
Asta

Boomer and I, Terry and Mindy are truly blessed by wonderful friends like you!

From my heart to your world,

Linda

Gifts of Love — Sunday, June 17, 2020

What a whirlwind of worry, I have just been through.  Things are better (not completely over yet) but better.

I can see an improvement with the little beagle nose…the swelling is down

He is able to sniff with both nostrils now, and the snot is lessening.

Your prayers/the medicine–and Boomer’s desire to get well are all helping. He is still not well, but he IS better!  Thank you ever so much!

Then on that golden world we call the earth I found a rock heart

Walking along the next day on the ditch bank…I found another one!

Vadarae sent me a rainbow—a double rainbow filling the sky and her very large farm in Texas.

Just the perfect answers to my sadness and despair—Hope!

Hope— in all of these wonderful and buoyant messages!

You are the very best…each one of you for you do care, and have sent healing prayers to heaven for me and my wonderful little beagle!

 

From my heart to each of your hearts,

Linda

 

In the Quiet of the Early Morning —- Thursday, May 14, 2020

The wind, ah, the wind, days of hard blowing wind

Ever so necessary to melt all the snow on the Uncompahgre Plateau

And dry up all the mud

Still in the early morning air

The blooms stand straight and tall

Instead of whipped about and leaning.

The sun is bright overhead,

the air warm,

and in the early morning air

you can smell the grass

and earth and

the irrigation water soaking the land;

all the while birds are filling our ears with song.

From my world to your heart,

Linda

 

 

The God(s) Answered — Wednesday, May 13, 2020

The dust has been building for a long-time

The wind picking it up and flinging the tiny bits of soil here and there

In all directions

But Monday

The rains came

Big dark clouds, with light misting of rain on our farm (heavy rains in other parts of our area)

Beautiful phenomenon blessing the land, settling the dust

Creating a warm mist in the air

Freshening the earth, all over again.

Your friend on a western Colorado farm,

Linda
