An Uncertain Future

IMG_6626

As I lay awake on this early foggy morning, I find myself wondering about my future.

With our original plans to leave our little homestead on November 1st, we’d bought a camper. Nothing fancy… Just a small, 21 foot camper with enough room to eat, sleep and bathe…

Yet, even now, it sits in our driveway… waiting for us to hitch it up and head out on the open road…

We’d found homes for all our chickens…

It’s been more than a month since we’ve had delicious, farm fresh eggs!

I miss our chickens!!!

But, delay after delay keeps up on the homestead.

There must be a reason…

My niece, who had originally planned to come with us, found herself pregnant and decided to stay behind.

Having made arrangements, that did not go as planned, she now finds herself in a quandry… and now, both she and her estranged husband want to ‘tag along’ when we go…

I honestly don’t know how I feel about this latest development…

Do we let them tag along?

If we don’t, choices they’ve made will mean they are homeless within the week…

Have our continued delays kept us here for this purpose?

Mom and I have had a plan from the beginning… To travel these United States… to see those places we’ve only seen in pictures…

We’d also planned to look for a piece of land that has those things we did not know or think to look for when we found our present home… such as a ranch-style home, a creek, and a spring fed well…

And yet, here we stay… Delay after delay, keeping us here, facing an uncertain future…

There must be a purpose…

I can only trust that God has His reasons for our delays…

He must have some sort of plan…

Desperate for change, I left the city behind and moved to the country... I am obsessed with raising chickens, old barns and cooking from scratch. Welcome to my homestead!
