Welcome to Home Shalom!

Welcome to Home Shalom and Shalom Farm. We pray your visit here be blessed. We are learning to walk in the Ways (Torah) of our Father YHWH and follow Y'shua, His Messiah until He returns to "set things straight". We call it a "Messi-Life". Our walk is neither tidy nor perfect, but it is filled with passion, devotion and desire to serve our King. We are learning to be humble servants, and to be good stewards of the things that He has entrusted to us: His Word, our marriage, our children, our family, our community, our health, and our farm. Hitch your horse and stay a while--our door is always open!

Poetry Left Behind

These are two simple poems my Grandma wrote and left behind for her family when she died. I am not claiming she is Shakespare, nor would she, but these "last words" reveal so much of who she was. You can see, she wanted to...for one last time...encourage us, comfort us and leave us with hope. THAT was my Grama! I thought I would share them.


When I have left this world, don't cry for me;
For our Father God has decreed where I should be.

God in His wisdom and His precious love;
Has taken me to my home up above.

To each of my children still here on earth;
Each moment I have treasured with you from your birth.

To my husband "Thank you for the years we shared";
For all the times, you me showed you cared.

All my Grandchildren and the one gone on before;
All the blessing you have given me, I cannot keep score.

Life is for those here on earth to use and to give;
To serve our Lord and each other as long as we live.

Maybe the best thing we can give to the memory of those we love;
Is to live our lives for each other and our God above.

My Graduation

The day of my graduation has come
My time on this earth, my work is done
The Streets of Gold are laid out for me
All of God's glory and my Saviour too see
My husband and children have all my heart
And now, just for a little while
We will be apart
You have been such a joy
Words I cannot find
I love you so much
Its hard to leave you behind
But God in His wisdom, has made this great plan
That we will all be together and walk hand in hand
Until the sunrise of that morning comes
May you walk with the LORD in the victory He has won
I will be waiting on the other side for you
So keep your heart with pure LOVE, in all that you do
