Dear Harold,

I’ve always been a dreamer….dreaming of something bigger than me….dreaming for others….but that’s what they’ve always been…dreams….dreams that I never could obtain.

Four years ago I had given up on everything but my faith in God. I knew He was bigger than me and if it was His will he could heal me completely. He could set me free. He could give me a reason to want to live again…He could rekindle the fire in my heart and soul that had died over time.

God waited quietly for me to seek Him. It was a beautiful spring day when I found him next to me in my garden. I heard Him softly whisper…this is where life begins. I didn’t know at the time what that meant, but on my knees, as the tears flowed, He planted a seed of new life deep within me.

Over the next three years I sought God in a way I had never sought Him before. He watered the seeds I planted. I had a hunger for His word like I had never had before. Day after day I would sit at my kitchen table reading chapter after chapter. Seeking. Praying. Growing. Writing. Sharing. Giving. Loving. Living.

I began to dream again….now God is saying I will share my dreams with you!

I dream of a life seeking God daily in His word with you, our children, and all who God puts in our path. There isn’t a place here on the ridge I don’t like seeking God. It can be at my kitchen table, sitting on a hay bale with my chicks, in my garden, or riding on the tractor.

I dream of a life with daily walks and talks with God. Oh, how I long for an intimate relationship with my Lord and Savior that never ends. I pray this for our children as well. There is a peace and purpose of life that comes only from Him.

I dream of a life where I learn new things daily. God has so much to teach me…and He’s going to continue to use you, our children, His creation, and this ridge to teach me.

I dream of a life where God uses my writings. I know I’m not the best at it…but I love writing. It’s not that I want them to be “self help”, I just simply love sharing the love of God through my eyes.

I dream of being a light in the darkness. I love God and I want to share this love with the WORLD. I have so many God size dreams for Hill of Zion.

I dream of giving to those that are seeking that which is good. I want to invest in PEOPLE. I believe God is going to give us everything we need to do His Kingdom work where He has planted us.

But mainly I dream of living a simple life seeking God in EVERYTHING…the good, the bad, and the ugly. If God only grants this last dream…I’m good with that.

And ye shall seek me, and find me, when ye shall search for me with all your heart.

Jeremiah 29:13
