Ever feel like your life is one big question mark? Or, if not your life, than at least your future? Some people like to talk about their five and ten year plans. Us? Well, lately it seems we’ve been residing at the corner of I Don’t Know and Well, Maybe… We haven’t said anything here [...]

It’s hard to know exactly what to post sometimes. I know many of you are still praying for our land situation, and I want to keep you updated. To be perfectly honest, it sort of feels like we’ve been the metaphorical fire hydrant in life recently. {You know, “some days you’re the dog, and some [...]

We’re still here. Still farming. Before I get into the details though, I just have to say, “Thank you.” We were blown away by the way our prayer request was snatched up and passed around. Prayers were multiplied much more than we could ever know, I’m sure. Family and friends, we felt your support as [...]

This morning is a lazy one. It’s the first “normal” {stay-at-home} day since our family left. I’m sipping on a little coffee and doing “internet stuff”, while Elliot watches Floyd beside me. The dishes are still waiting to be washed. There aren’t many – mostly cups and about two dishes from breakfast. I just scrambled [...]

We have water in the well. Lots of it! Today, I was finally able to see it for myself. I have been to the location, but I haven’t seen any of the work since the guys first started digging about 2 weeks ago. After breakfast this morning, Farmer Jonathan took Elliot and me for a [...]

There’s so much good stuff going on around here, it’s hard to know where to start! Mike, Cheryl and their three boys arrived safely and on time on Thursday. They’ve adjusted very well and have already helped us accomplish a lot. Let’s start with the farming stuff {since that’s why we’re here!}: Mike and Jonathan [...]

I realize that sometimes I talk about projects we’re starting and then never finish the story. This is true for several reasons. 1. Things tend to progress slowly, and I have a habit of only wanting to post completed projects. 2. These projects make up our normal day to day life, therefore, I don’t always [...]
