HAPPY BIRTHDAY FARMStrong!!
YES Friends, it's hard to believe it but FARMStrong has turned two. You can see how it all got started right here.

In that same spirit of higher math-- I offer this two year birthday present.

Knowing Much + Thinking Much of yourself = Pride
Knowing Little + Thinking Much of yourself = Arrogance
Knowing Little + Thinking Little of yourself = Ignorance
Knowing Much + Thinking Little of yourself = Humility

In other words, I once thought I was humble. Now I'm sure I'm ignorant. How about you?

How about a little birthday shoutout comment love for FARMStrong. Tell her what she's meant to you.

Huh! That is a cool parallel to consider - between the first and latest post. I can definitely say that FARMstrong is the most aesthetically pleasing of the blogs I read ;)

Happy Day!

Smiles,

Much love to FS. Thanks for the poetry, theology, and Walt clan updates!

Certainly aspire to humility, but more often arrogance or ignorance is the case, unfortunately.

Happy Birthday FARMStrong!

The best place on the web for theology (the christian year never looked so much fun), poetry (still wainting for the farmstrong forty) and humor (how much sand and poo can you fit in a baby diaper?).

FARMStrong... the best thing to come out of Arkansas since Bobble-Head Hillary.

(by the way... i always thought i was ignorant; now i humbly know i am).

Congrats to FARMStrong, what will the terrible 2s have in store for us? Hopefully more photos of the Walt family and poetry by an evangelical United Methodist who loves hanging out at a Roman Catholic Trappist Monastery.

My birthday yesterday (29th) so we're nearly related!

Well, except the date isn't actually the same, and (of course) the year misses by much, much more.

I always love to drop by and be inspired. Keep it coming JD. And thanks today for the picture of Jesus in his suede jacket, it brings back fond Asbury memories!

think...rhyme...love. that's my summary and i'm so grateful for it. in the short time i've visited, i've been mentally challenged (wait...i don't think that came out right) and emotionally moved. i've also started my own blog as a result, so even at the age of 2, farmstrong has children! thanks jd.
