It is the law of the prairie homesteader the lessons learned by our family of the land from the plains of South Dakota and Nebraska to the rolling orchard of Oregon
the land was never worked alone "take my yoke upon your shoulders" the yoke that broke the land always had room for two... the oxen shared the load broke the land carried the burden and never held the yoke alone from then... until now we learn the lessons of the journey into the Advent of Now.
I am the oxen. the yoke has room for two sharing the load the impossible becomes possible Grace enters and the work becomes lighter the load becomes bear-able the journey is shortened I am the oxen
I am the oxen who was not summoned to the stable by angelic tone but to give witness to the power of travelling together: to be and act as one sharing both the load and the harvest as we discover new frontiers on our way to the stable ahead of us. I am the oxen.
I am the oxen I am here on the road to the stable to remind you not to walk alone. For this is the road where the new begins the road where the old ends. Walk together to the stable Share the load of love to the stable. Expect the Miracle.
