Wise advice from a farmer’s wife.


Sunshiny SA Site

I’ve always had a penchant for rural life. When I stumbled across this post on Facebook, I smiled and thought to share.  Good, wise advice any day!

1.      Whenever you return a borrowed pie pan, make sure it’s got a warm pie in it.
2.      Invite lots of folks to supper. You can always add more water to the soup.
3.      There’s no such thing as woman’s work on a farm. There’s just work.
4.      Make home a happy place for the children. Everybody returns to their happy place.
5.      Always keep a small light on in the kitchen window at night.
6.      If your man gets his truck stuck in the field, don’t go in after him. Throw him a rope and pull him out with the tractor.
7.      Keep the kerosene lamp away from the milk cow’s leg.

About Jonathan Caswell

Poet, author, servant of God the Heavenly father and the Lord Jesus Christ...working out his salvation with fear and trembling. - Not trusting in his own deeds, but depending totally upon the finished sacrificial work of Jesus Christ to be, by God's reckoning, a new creature, clothed in Christ's righteousness...which mortal humankind can never attain by their own weak efforts, apart from faith in Christ's work on our behalf. - College-educated, yet wise enough to see that what a man does will not be his ultimate identity nor affect how God sees him or her. - Called by God to do a very difficult thing...apart from God's grace, mercy and strength...to love the sinner (which we all--by nature--are) but hate the sin, which is only paid through Christ, God's Son, - My own God-given gift is that of being a Poet..showing that in all parts of life...God has a loving part in it...as hard as that is to always understand or perceive...given life's realities! Come join me on my journey of discovery?.
