What a surprise

June 20, 2017 Rhonda Schrock Rhonda's Posts

Yesterday, The Cub turned 11. Man alive. What a surprise that whole thing was! I was 38, rushin’ headlong at 40 when the stick turned pink. I’ll never forget it. It was the Monday after Thanksgiving is what it was. Which was when the evening stars fell straight from the heavens, the earth tilted on its axis, […]

Rain for dry sponges (you can!)

June 16, 2017 Rhonda Schrock Rhonda's Posts

Heads up, girls. Today, you will meet other women. Girls of all ages, shapes, sizes and talents will cross your path. The truth of it is that most of ’em aren’t convinced that they’re lovely or acceptable or worth much or just flat ‘okay’ the way they are. And the way they aren’t. What the […]

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.

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 […]
