Knolltop Farm Wife

Welcome to my blog! I'm a wife, mother of four and a self-employed freelance writer. I live on a dairy farm with my family and I enjoy sharing our life with family, friends and anyone else who wants to visit the farm. There's no telling what the I will write about from day to day, but hopefully you'll be enriched when you stop by! Have a wonderfully blessed day!

Turkeys times two

It's another cool, cloudy morning here on the Knolltop!

I've been waiting to share this story for a week now, but every time I sit down, it slips my mind!

A couple of weeks ago, I interviewed a man from southern Hillsdale County named Jim Gier(shown above). The purpose of the story was to write about his hobby, building horse drawn wagons. I found out about him from his daughter Penny who asked me if I was interested in the story and by the way, it was his birthday in November. So of course, because I think the world of Penny, I have ever since she and I worked together at The Farmers' Advance, I agreed to write the story.

While interviewing Jim, I was drawn to him. He was just one of those folks you didn't want to leave. He was so kind, full of great stories and had a deep compassion for dairy farmers since he had milked cows himself.

I wrote the story and hoped everyone liked it. The day after Thanksgiving I was sitting at my computer writing while the washer was going and folded laundry sat on the table and I heard a knock on the door. I looked and it was Jim and his wife Ruth!

Jim said he had something for me in the trunk of his car, so I followed him out and Ruth and he pulled out two 20 pound turkeys! He said he had just gotten them on sale and thought our family could use them!

I invited them in and we sat and visited about our respective Thanksgivings, he told a few stories and then they got up to leave. Before he left, he looked at me and said, "Just hang in there, I know the dairy business is tough right now, but the Man upstairs will take good care of you."

A lump swelled in my throat as tears came to my eyes and I gave him a hug and said, thanks. They left and I just marveled at God's grace and love. Sending this retired couple to give me just the boost I needed proves just how much God loves each one of us!

That is just the coolest story. The Lord always knows best. We need not worry if we know Him He will take care of us. Have a great day. Rebekah.

Pretty chilly at the FourDot also, Christmas baking is getting done, The garden harvest was tremendous, fed lots of folks. Two weddings next year, so it is good that I retired from the local FSA office, Grandma will be 90 on Saturday.

Regards to all of you.
