Growing Up Agrarian

We are four Christian, homechurched, homeschooled, homesteading, agrarian children growing up in Central Texas on a Ranch. We are Tracy,(15) Jennifer,(10) Robert,(9) and Sarah(5) Bunker. We also have one more brother, Thomas Shepard Bunker, who is in the courts of glory. We like to read books, raise animals, and play on the land. Tracy will be writing about the stuff we do. We hope you enjoy our Adventures!



Daddy and Robert went fishing this morning, but they did not get any fish. The girls stayed home, and did school until the boys got home. Tracy wrote a poem and would like to share it with you:

Good morning this day,
Today I am going to pray
Lord, thanks for life
I don't know what I'd do
If I didn't have You!

You saved me from death
You gave me Your breath
I don't know what I'd do
If I didn't have You!

If I didn't have You
I would suffer and die
But You died for me
You died to set me free!

I didn't have a choice
I didn't have a voice
But You did what you do
So I can live with You!

I have life eternal
And praise you I shall
You gave me bread
And a place to lay my head

I pray on my knees tonight
Lord, give me Your light
Make my blind eyes see
What You gave for me

You died for me
So I shout for glee
I don't know what I'd do
If I didn't have you!

Did you like it??
Well, there are chores to do before lunch!!
God Bless,
The Bunker Children

What a beautifully written poem Tracy! I like how it shows your complete dependence on the Lord for every single thing He has done, and continues to do, for you.

God’s Blessings Bunker Children!

I really like your poem Tracy. Your delight in and love for God is genuinely expressed in your words of appreciation for his sovereignty and creation. It displays more spiritual maturity than is shown by many of the adults I know.

Excellent poem. It would be great to put it to music and make a hymn out of it.
