It happened. I didn't want it to. I thought I was stronger than that. But, looking back, I see that I let it happen.

For several months now I have not been feeling myself. I have been irritable, anxious, intolerant, angry, smug, and overwhelmed.

I gave satan a foothold. I gave him an inroad.

I am probably like many of you. Checking my Facebook every know, the "newspaper" we read first thing to see the latest happenings with our friends and family. Only it's not that anymore. It's become a cesspool of politics, anger, greed, self indulgence, how to fake your life for the world to much is not even real anymore. It's exhausting trying to wade through it all to find some sort of truth, to find something real...Oh there is the occasional scripture I come across, but even then it is a photo of a scripture that is either taken out of context or from a translation that isn't even close to the real meaning.

Redneck Walkway

The path from the house to the chicken coop can get very swampy and muddy when the weather gets wetter. It gets really messy. I finally decided I was tired of it. We had some old pallets laying around that weren't being used for anything else yet, so I decided to make a walkway.

We had some ruts from a bobcat we filled in with useless dirt (bagged dirt I bought thinking I would use it for plants...terrible stuff) Anyway, I then just laid out the pallets and wahlah...a redneck walkway. 😁



It'll do for now...

It's Been a While...

It has been a few years since I have written in this blog. A lot has changed! For starters, I am no longer sick! I was healed 3 yrs ago this month :D It's a long story, but you can hear the testimony here. In 2015, we spent 5 weeks in Venezuela doing mission work. My son graduated high school. We have added a ton to our prepper stash. (more on that in a future post) I started making and selling handmade soaps and hand-blended teas that are made right here on our homestead. You can visit our Etsy shop here.

We visited Idaho this winter. What a beautiful place! We also got to finally visit Montana, too. Glacier was so pretty!

Our winter here in Illinois has been very mild and has me catching Spring fever already! I have to hold myself back from planting anything too early. Instead, I am focusing on ripping out old garden beds and burning parts of the property that are overgrown.

I've got a ton to do around Moose Head Homestead today and better get to it! Have a great day!
