When I Grow Up

Finish this question, "When I grow up...". I'm sure I'm not the only one that heard that as a kid. If you're like me, you may have more than one answer, or at least changed it a few times before you decided on one.My earliest recollection of being asked that was answering "President." Well I'm ...

Homestead Dreams

Dream Planning

Dear readers, buying our little hobby farm in 2009 was the realization of a dream. A big dream. I recently ended the last story of our first summer on the farm by using the anonymous quote: “When one of your dreams come true, you begin to look at the others more carefully.” I can’t ...

Together with God: Hopes and Dreams

I’ve had a dream for a long time now that my mother would come to live with me, but we are 1,300 miles apart. Such a long distance, and yet we can cross it with one phone call, one thought of love, one wish for the other’s well being. I think about her being here to the point that I can ...
