How a famine can bring restoration and plenty

May 23, 2017 Rhonda Schrock Rhonda's Posts

I’m running along our country road, talking out loud to the Father I’ve come to know. “Talk to me about famine.” That’s what I say, for what’s on my heart this day is my own lean famine years. For so many long, lonely years, I did not know this good, kind Father. Oh, I knew […]

“Consider it pure joy, my brothers and sisters, whenever you face trials of many kinds, because you know that the testing of your faith produces perseverance. Let perseverance finish its work so that you may be mature and complete, lacking nothing (James 1:2-4).” On a bright, sun-drenched spring morning, the picture comes. A lovely, green […]

Why you don’t have to be Martha Stewart or the Queen of Pinterest

April 18, 2017 Rhonda Schrock Rhonda's Posts

I posted this on Facebook yesterday, and judging by the number of comments that came in, it struck a nerve with my friends. I’m sharing it here in case someone else needs permission to keep it simple. Quick, little confession to start the week. I don’t like planning big, official hoo-ha’s. Like graduation parties. I […]

Why “summer love” beats young love any day

April 12, 2017 Rhonda Schrock Rhonda's Posts

Spring has come to The Three. Looking out across The Back Forty, the grass is an emerald carpet rolling past the garden and past the swing; a cozy blanket tucked carefully around The Big Red Barn and the chicken coop. Trees are budding, birds are hollering, and the air is scented with joy. Spring is […]

What the Lilacs Say

April 11, 2017 Rhonda Schrock Rhonda's Posts

Walking up our country road, it comes. Wafting along on the wings of a breeze, the scent of lilacs invite. And there they are. In spring’s fullest bloom, wearing purple dresses, the neighbor’s lilac bush is full, is fragrant. And just like that, I’m back on the farm, running ‘long the lane. At Grandma’s house. […]

When a stranger texts–and God answers

April 4, 2017 Rhonda Schrock Rhonda's Posts

By lamp’s soft light on this chill April day, I open the Word. And this is the verse that I read. “For the eyes of the Lord range throughout the earth to strengthen those whose hearts are fully committed to Him (2 Chron. 16:9a).”¬† What follows is true. I carry the proof, and I’ve changed […]

March 28, 2017 Rhonda Schrock Rhonda's Posts

  Today, I’m gonna pass along a little tidbit (well, a kinda big one, actually) that’s been bringin’ me a whole lotta peace and rest. It came from Mr. Schrock once when he and I were talkin’ about his Great Travail and how he broke through to full peace and freedom and rest. “I just […]

“There is one Holy Spirit, and you’re not Him”

March 27, 2017 Rhonda Schrock Rhonda's Posts

Though it happened years ago, I remember it still. There in that century home with its high, towering ceilings and wooden stairs that creaked, it had been Armageddon. A knock-down, drag-out that ended with The Mister outside the house, choppin’ wood for all the world like Paul Bunyan. And with Babe (that’s me, not the […]
