Up With the Chickens

Raising children and chickens on a little buffalo farm

Farm Blessing…

on February 16, 2013

Buffalo Morning

We haven’t gotten much snow in the Southern Ozarks this winter.  In fact, the dusting we got this morning has been about it.  But that was just enough for me to snap this photo.  By noon all the snow was gone, so I am happy I got the shot.

I’ve been feeling especially grateful for all the blessings of farm life lately.   It has put me in mind of the following prayer…

Bless, O Lord, Almighty God,

this farm.

May health and purity,

goodness and meekness 

and every virtue reign here.

May all those who dwell here

be filled with faithfulness to Thy law

and with thanksgiving to God,

the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit.

May this blessing remain on this farm 

and all who dwell here.

Through Christ our Lord.

  1. Beautiful photo! You really captured a moment there and it works well with your blessing. 🙂

    • Thank you. The photo makes it look like the herd was trudging through a terrible storm, but we actually only got a dusting of snow and it was warm and sunny the next day. For that, I really am thankful!
