Welcome


Thank you for visiting. This site is set up to be an outpouring of faith, hope and love.  It is a sharing of the light that has grown so many things here on the farm.  What things you ask?  Well for starters it has grown...

Light My Way FM


So many musicians have shed light on the path.  For years this little radio station / playlist has taken root and grown on the farm. Closing in on 300 songs it spans decades, includes  diverse musical genres (if you're a one genre sort, you've been warned) and yet lyrically all of it never fails to lift up this humble farmer. Perhaps it will lift you up as well and like me, you’ll keep coming back for another listen... or better yet it will inspire you to make a station of your own.

Ponderings and wonderings appear in the blog section.  Many old blog posts are being revamped and new thoughts about love and light, faith and hope are on the way.

Images and Words


These prayers and images have been cross pollinating on the
farm for years and have finally grown into a form that
is easy to give away to others that find them helpful.
During quiet times, certain prayers seem to sprout up and cross pollinate with images and icons.  In time these grow into little prayer cards that capture their essence. They get shared with others who resonate with their truth and beauty. Such people find them to be helpful focal points and reminders.

Sometimes these cards are left in places where people might appreciate them; like prayer chapels and such.  In fact you may have arrived at this site as a result of that.  In the Images and Words section those little creations are explained a bit.  You may find it helpful to explore that.

These and other gifts are given freely to bless you.  Some of you have asked if you can give something in return.  It had never occurred to me to allow this as I am not a non-profit entity nor do I wish any material profit from the books, prayer cards or other things shared. (See Photon Farms financial statement here.)

That being explained, in order to be capable of blessing more people, I am happy to accept your help.  That can be done at the right, at whatever level your heart desires.

Meditations for Christians!



A special section of images and words has developed as I've stumbled onto a tiny way to take to heart Jesus' prayer for all Christians to be one, as He and the Father are one (Jn 17:21).  One thing has led to another and I have found myself adapting a very old but beautiful devotion into something that can help all Christians obey the scriptures which repeatedly instruct us to meditate on God's word.  Since the Word became flesh and dwelt among us, these commands to meditate now include a special focus on Jesus Christ, The Living Word.

The story of how this is continuing to play out can be seen here at Meditations for All!.
