Two Years Ago...Dreams Do Come True

"It is not on any map. True places never are."

Herman Melville ~ Mody Dick


If you could wake up tomorrow and not have to answer to anyone.

Except Mother Nature.

Enjoy a pot of coffee over an open fire.

Raise your own beef.

Enjoy fresh milk each day from your favorite milk goat.

Slow cook that tender roast ~ enough for company too.

An alarm clock, not that you would need one...and an egg a day.

Life simply. Outhouse simply.

Build your own furniture, from your own trees.

You can.

I can.

Start with a teeny tiny idea.

Write it down.

Make it yours.

Focus on that plan.

Make it your plan.

Your desire.

Your dream.

Follow that dream.

And remember, "less is more".

"The longings of your heart are not incidental, they are critical messages. The desires of your heart are not to be ignored, they are to be consulted. As the wind turns the weather vane, so God uses your passions to turn your life. God is too gracious to ask you to do something you hate."

Max Lucado ~ Just like Jesus

Until tomorrow ~ one day closer to my plan ~ God willing (and smiling),


SIDEBAR:  This Blog was originally published on 3/24/09...almost two years ago...

and now I am "livin' the dream" with 1/3 Living.  Start now folks ~ make your plan. 

It WILL come true!

So encouraging, thank you. And that Max Lucado quote is 1 of my all-time favorites. I use it ~ & think on it ~ often.
