Farm update.....

Lots has happened, and I mean a lot...since we arrived at the farm after my retirement.  I guess really, a lot was happening before that, I just didn't see it.  But that's another story.  I'll just come on out and say it.  We're done....we're done with the farm.  God gave us that farm for a very specific reason, which Erin and I are well aware of now.  He wanted us to own it for such a short time to show us something, mainly me, that I'd been missing for several years....God wanted to show me something, someone..and I'll leave it at that.  We know, and that's what is important.  Naysayers will say I told you so, and we're ok with that.  We know how it looks on the surface, but only a few know inside, God's true plan with that.  I won't lie, I love the idea of homesteading, but honestly we also bit off way more than both of us could chew.  We just went "too" deep, too off grid.  But hey, when have we ever done anything small right.  I know many of you will have questions, and I'm not trying to be mean, but you'll just need to learn to live without the answers.  Just live knowing that God's will is being done and all the Glory is His.  We don't think of this as a failure, in fact just the opposite.  God has His tools, some bigger than others, this was a very big life lesson.  I'm thankful for the experience, thankful for the friends I made out there, and thankful that He gave us the farm for His reason.
     What's next you may ask...We'll let you know when we find out.  We aren't going back to the farm.  I mean I'll go back eventually to pack and move things again, don't know when though.  I'm sure I'll go back to take care of some business.  But for now, we're on the road.  Enjoying some time together as Husband and Wife, and a family.  Visiting with friends and family and just listening to God.  I guess you could consider us Nomads for now, but that's ok...We will keep this blog, along with it's name, "Our Side of the fence"  Cause it still fits us and our life...we just have a movable fence now.  We look forward to our next adventure, heck we're on one now...Keep us in prayer that we'll continue to seek God and He'll continue to bless our family as we travel.

Ciao` for now....

  1. WOW! I am shocked, but you know what? it will be ok. God obviously has a bigger better plan. My offer for lodging and entertainment (such as it is) still stands, and I cannot wait to hear what you pick up "along the way" to your next destination.
