A Land Flowing with Milk and Honey

"Exodus 3:8 And I am come down to deliver them out of the hand of the Egyptians, and to bring them up out of that land unto a good land and a large, unto a land flowing with milk and honey."

http://www.backyardchickens.com/classifieds/feedback/index/current/feedback/user_id/315709The phrase came to me recently.... It was a pleasantly warm Sunday day but not a humid tropical one....We're closed to the public for sales on Sunday, and spent that day praising God and rejoicing in our blessings and spending special time thinking, pondering, learning and growing, and listening and reading His word.

Having spent the early morning with tending the goats and all the animals, and later pouring up part of the recent honey into jars, this verse came to my soul.

I thought of how we came to this small farm in Bowdon so many years ago, going through the years of looking for a farm place that would be called our farm home... Where we could garden and be in a small, peaceful and Godly community where we could grow in our faith and better serve Him. He called us to the place with a name we'd never known because after all our self directed efforts, He just brought us here, when there was no where else to turn and in our praying He heard our heartfelt desire.

We knew the minute we arrived God had led us here. A place I first spelled as Bowdown...And truly it fits our situation.
We had been wandering around Georgia and Alabama and even looking further out yearning for clean air and peaceful countryside. God placed us here in His Time. When I see the beauty around me, the bees drinking nectar from the honeysuckle and vegetable blooms, when I milk the goats, my soul had to turn to this memory verse from Vacation Bible School years ago. Thank you Bowdon and surrounding communities for welcoming us so warmly.

Thank you Lord for your bountiful Love and that You give us What We need in Your time....
