Fear Not Tomorrow

Good evening Dear Family Cow Friends,

I'm not going to even pretend that life is normal. It's not. I'm 50 years old and I've never seen times like these. I've talked with some who are 80 and they've never seen times of uncertainty like this either.

So we are in new territory. None of us really know what is ahead of us. But I do have a feeling that the people and relationships in our lives are going to be more important and special to us than ever before.

And I also know this. We have a God who does know the future and He is in control. So even when our human panic wants to rise, if we instead choose Faith and Trust and Hope in Him, peace and calmness of soul is possible. Yes! Peace even in the middle of COVID's reign of fear.

Since we are in new territory, please allow me to share some food for the soul. Food for the body is good. But in times like these, it's food for the soul that we all really need.

So to each of you... may I suggest that wherever you are, sit back, relax and take seven slow, deep breaths. When you have finished, please take a moment to listen and meditate on the message of this song: Fear Not Tomorrow... God Is Already There

I hope it speaks peace to you.

I typed the lyrics of the song out for better reflection. Read it and meditate while you listen and let the words sink in. 

This song was Courtney's idea. Courtney Lehman is a friend from our church who has been a part of The Family Cow team for close to 4 years. She answers a lot of your email and phone questions, so if you have corresponded with our farm, it's likely that you've talked or emailed with her.

Anyway, I know Courtney loves music and likes to sing so I asked her if she had a special song that she thought fit these troublesome times. This is the one that she sent me. So if you like it also... thank Courtney! :)

Here is wishing Faith, Hope and Health to each of you.

As always, feel free to share these posts with others. Use this link.

Blessings,
Your farmer ~ Edwin

Fear Not Tomorrow

In this age of uncertainty...
Questions come to my mind...
What is waiting ahead for me?
And the rest of mankind?
Fear not tomorrow!
God is already there!
He's charting the course you'll take.
He sees each hidden snare.
He's waiting to guide you
Through each burden and care.
Fear not tomorrow!
God is already there!


Are you troubled over things to come?
Is your future unsure?
Are you dreading the coming dawn?
A long day to endure?
Fear not tomorrow!
God is already there!
He's charting the course you'll take.
He sees each hidden snare.
He's waiting to guide you
Through each burden and care.
Fear NOT Tomorrow!
God. Is. ALREADY. There!
