Let's Go Home

Every morning, when I run the sled dogs with the ATV, I give commands.



Gee.  
(right...)

Haw.
(left...)

On bye...
(aka IGNORE)
(especially when our free-ranging rabbits run in front of the team...)


But my favorite command of all...

is...

Let's go home.


I can't help but get a big smile on my face, thinking about when I will go home.



Home to my Heavenly Father, and see the face of Jesus.

"In my Father's house are many rooms.  
If it were not so, would I have told you that I go to prepare a place for you?"

John 14:2

Until next time, dear friends, God willing.

Sherry

Do you allow your bunnies to free range all year round? I have alot of bunnies and have been considering this, but the temp goes down to -30 for at least a month every winter...thanks!
Amish country also looks devine!

Thank you Ang, for the wonderful comments. Yes, the rabbits are on their own, although we do feed them throughout the winter (not so much in the summer, but they encroach on the chicken's "leftover scratch"...:) We also keep water out for them. They also go in with our pigs. And eat with our horses... They do wonderful in the winter...and we have lots of woodpiles for them to nest. And they go under out cabin. Right now, we have bunnies everywhere. It's fun to see, but makes gardening difficult. :) My Blog has several posts showing them in action. Have fun. And thank you for following. I LOVE your Blog too! Can't wait to catch up with it, when I have time.
