Greetings From Chris 

   " Black Dirt " 


It has been a very long winter. I am so grateful that we were kept safe through all the storms. We are enjoying the little glimpses of spring that we are starting to see. The grass is starting to look green and the sun is definitely getting warmer. Another sign of spring is an unbelievable phenomenon that takes place every year. We live out in the middle of a field. We have a gravel driveway that is ΒΌ mile long. Every year I probably spread on this driveway at least two truck loads of gravel. This driveway has been here long before I lived here. I am guessing that there has been gravel on this lane for nearly 100 years. I could not begin to guess how much gravel has been placed on this driveway during this time, but I know it has been a lot. This is why I am blown away at what happens every year. As the frost leaves the ground, the middle of our driveway begins to explode upward out of the ground and this black dirt begins to emerge! It is unbelievable. Where did all that gravel go and how did the dirt get up here?

 I am sure I have probably written about this before, but it is so amazing. It so reminds me of some of my own natural tendencies. Jesus said that out of the over flow of the heart the mouth speaks. In my own life it is easy to try and portray someone that I want people to think I am. The spreading of gravel in my life is the propping up of walls to cover up and hide who I really am inside. But the fact of the matter is it doesn't matter what I try to do to hide or cover up. It will come out. God knows what's in my heart and eventually through my speech and actions it will come out. One of the greatest things that I am learning as I get older is to give the inside of me to God and Jesus and not try to hide my weaknesses and imperfections, but to let God use them to show his greatness! It is a very humbling thing to admit all your faults and mistakes, but also the most incredible freeing thing ever! It is so refreshing to admit who I really am and let God take control and make me more like Jesus every day.

 Thanks again for being such a great customer family! We truly appreciate you! You are a blessing to us! Happy Easter! He is Risen!
