Home Sweet Home

"It is not on any map.  True places never are."
Herman Melville ~ Moby Dick


If you could wake up tomorrow and have the day be free of any stress.
{ can.}

What does freedom look like to you?

Perhaps raising your own food?

Or simple preparation of that food?

Or making sure others are fed?

Simple transportation?

Live simply?

No mortgage.  No insurance.  No hassle.  Just our ancestors lived? 

Build your own furniture, from your own trees?

You can.

I can.

Start with a teeny tiny idea.

Write it down.

Make it yours.

No one says you have to live like the masses.  Mortgage-free living is attainable.  Pick a small parcel.  One that borders state land is also desired.  (You get the benefit of having land around you, without footing the tax bill.)  Of course, water on your property is very much desired, even a small stream.  Water wars dominate the world today.  Actually they always have... 

The key is to dream.

Focus on that plan.

Make it your plan.

Your desire.

Your dream.

Follow that dream.

And remember, "less is more".

Living simply goes hand in hand with living debt free.  But don't beat yourself up if that is not currently the situation.  You can work your way out.  It's is doable, no matter how bad the situation is at this time.  Please believe me on that...

Just start small.

And look for like-minded friends who will support you, and perhaps work with you in a community-type setting.  Friends who lift you, and love you.  And be there for you, in thick and thin.  Friends who pull together.

The Bible teaches about non-accumulation.  Our society teaches the opposite.

Where do you stand?

The choice you make today will affect your life forever.

You can do this...

"Delight thyself also in the Lord: and He shall give thee the desires of thine heart."  Psalm 37:4

Until tomorrow, Lord willing.  Hope to see you here.
