Follow along on our 40-acre farm and sled dog kennel - tiny cabin and outhouse-living, in rural northern lower Michigan. We're not fancy...just folksy...and giving God all the GLORY.

Anxious?


Me too...
for winter...

However, it will come soon enough.



Plus, 
I don't want to skip my favorite season...

Autumn.



Until then, we will continue to enjoy what each day brings.

The good...


And the bad...



Speaking of anxious...
If you are not familiar with what is happening with our skies, please watch this...
it's a "must see" for all.  



Until next time, dear friends.  
Lord willing.
(And know He is sovereign...)

Friday Amish Visit

Soon...


I'll be among them.


To me, it's the best thing...


...this side of Heaven.

Until next time, dear friends.
I'm off visiting the Amish folks.

Lord willing.

Not-So-Random Act of Kindness

If you've been on the Mighty Mac lately,
you might have been on the receiving end of a
random act of kindness.


Years ago, I was the recipient of an act of kindness while crossing the Bridge.

The vehicle in front of me...
paid my toll.

I was stunned...and thankful.

Since then,
whenever I cross the Straits of Mackinac,
I enjoy doing the same.

Paying the toll for the vehicle behind me.

Whether you are in Michigan, or in San Fran, try it.

You'll have a smile, and so will the car behind you.

Pass it on...

Until next time, dear friends, Lord willing.

Amish Hospitality

It's been nearly two weeks, since I stepped into the world of the Amish.


This time, I was invited to attend their church service.


I can't write about it yet.  

It's still too sacred, too raw.

Too spiritual.


But soon, I will share the treasured time.  

It is truly one of the most blessed days I have ever spent in my life.

I felt...
at home.

Until then, God willing.

To Him be the Glory ~

Beck, Beans, Blackberries, and Buggy Training

With my hubby back from Texas...we can now get down to business.

{Russ was gone for 13 days...at Restoring Love in Dallas}


Russ was off serving others, and honoring our country.

I held down the farm {and sled dog kennel}.  
Barely...

Now, we both can continue to harvest our vegetable garden, 
pick the wild blackberries,
with Zip's assistance...


and


begin to train our youngster, 

Nauish (Now-eesh)







I can't wait to see him prance down our dirt road...hauling us to town, and back.



We'll keep you posted.

I can't wait to share more of our life with you, Lord willing.

To HIM be the Glory!
