A Promise I have Found to be True

Last Sunday one of the heifers birthed a brand new calf (I’m not actually sure how any other kind of ‘birth’ is possible... But it just sounded good). After the fires and floods, COVID and drought, it was the first calf born on our farm for more than a year. After all of the events ...

So how was your holiday break? Let me tell you about mine……

Week 1 12/10/2020 How was your holiday break? Well, that’s enough about you! Ask me how mine was. Thanks for asking, let me tell you all about it… The first week we won’t talk about. It was mostly working around the farm getting things sorted. All a bit boring. The second week. Well, let’s just ...

The Big Question??????

There are some ‘big questions’ in life that just have to be answered. We’re not talking about things like, ‘Where do babies come from?’, although there is a TV ad getting around at the moment that covers that one off quite well much to the horror of the child who asked the question from the ...

Is it Time to Set the Reset Button?

Flying in was an experience! It was late evening and a ground fog covered most of the landscape. That light, wispy grey that just hangs as the temperature drops and the humidity slips from invisible to visible. It had been a long flight in, and as we peered out over the nose of the aircraft ...

Thank God, He is not like us!

I admit it. It was completely irrational. I have no-where to go but straight to, ‘I made a mountain out of a molehill'… So I have been having this battle with our tractor. The front tyres take it in turns to deflate over a couple of days, meaning every time I want to use the ...

Relationships are the Bedrock of Life

Friends of ours have this house. I think you’d call it a ‘work in progress’… At the start, the plan was pretty simple (and modest). As my mate explained all those years ago, stick a three bedroom home on the farm they had bought that would, “Keep the rain off the kids, the dust off ...

Give it a Red Hot Crack!

Week 3 11/8/2020 Race tracks are like people. Once you get to know them, you discover most have a personality... Ringwood Motorsport Park near Newcastle is one of those technical, tight, low-speed tracks. It’s a frustrating place in a heavy and powerful car that likes to be turned loose. Any track that we don’t use ...

We Rest in the One Who Does Not Change…..

Over the past few weeks, we have found ourselves with space to breathe a little more freely without the commitment of daily routine as we know it. While routine, love it or hate it, is what all of our lives need, it has been wonderful to rest from it…especially when that routine has had to ...

Routines and Change – How are you going?

I spent the best part of six hours on the tractor last weekend. After we off-loaded most of our cattle due to the drought and also the fires that came through a few months ago, the rain has brought paddocks with grass up above our knees. And no cattle to eat it! The old tractor ...

Our message to You – Geoff, Casey and Sarah

This Easter, we don’t have the distraction of busyness to take our attention from the true celebration Easter is. Now, more than ever, we find ourselves in vulnerable spaces where we feel a lack of control and an uneasiness about the future. It probably looked and felt this way for all of Jesus’ followers ...
