Faith and Maddie are surprised the next day when she meets the very handsome and eligible Andrew (de la Fuente). At first, Faith thinks that her Christmas wish has come true. But as Christmas nears, Faith begins to wonder if Andrew is really perfect for her, or if the wish is leading her to her best friend, Wyatt (Hilton).

Shining His Light!

In honor of this farm-themed Fall Harvest movie, Love, Fall & Order, premiering this weekend on the Hallmark Channel, which is near and dear to my heart, because I am from a farm family, I wanted to share below this meaningful scripture about planting and reaping. These days, farming may be fueled by technology, big machinery, the stock market, etc..., but more importantly, it is grounded and rooted in faith.

"Remember this: Whoever sows sparingly will also reap sparingly, and whoever sows generously will also reap generously. Each of you should give what you have decided in your heart to give, not reluctantly or under compulsion, for God loves a cheerful giver. And God is able to bless you abundantly, so that in all things at all times, having all that you need, you will abound in every good work."

~ 2 Corinthians 9:6-8
