Gibsons working goats

Paul and Gill, the happy new owners of 6, Redeemer's Garden Cashmere goats.

the property and view!
Last month we had the privilege of sending some of our goats to work in Gibsons BC. They have the most amazing piece of property to live, work and play on. Ocean-front beaches, forest, crystal clear creek running through and owners who are crazy in love with them. Their 'job' is to clear about 10 acres of land, which has all kinds of vegetation. It is a huge smorgasbord of grasses, weeds, trees and shrubs including their favorite, blackberries. For some great pictures, see,

Roadside stand:

At Redeemer's Garden roadside stand and egg fridge, we operate on the honor system.  This provides a convenient service for people. However, it can only work as long as people act in an honorable way. Yesterday, someone, or more than one person, took $53 worth of food product. If this continues, the stand will have to move and only be available when someone is here to serve customers.  At first I was very angry, wanting God to 'get' them. Then hurt and disappointed in whoever this was. But God whispered in my heart's ear, 'bless those who curse you, do good to those who do evil to you, forgive and love your enemies....'  I admit, this wasn't something I wanted to do at first and am still struggling with, but as I surrender my emotions and will, the peace of God returns to my heart. And I trust Him to heal the pain as well.
If the person(s) who has done this reads this, I say this to you.
"You are forgiven and loved. What you have done is not right and it will steal the peace in your own heart, but there is a remedy for that. Perhaps you have never known peace in your heart, so you have no idea what I am talking about. You may think you have gotten away with this act, but you can't run and hide from yourself. The way to peace is to turn from evil and allow the Prince of Peace to wash you clean, and become a child of the Heavenly Father. I may never come in contact with you, but if we do, I will treat you with respect. I am willing to enter into a dialog with you and lead the way to the Prince of Peace if that is your desire."
