My dear readers (and a heartfelt welcome to my newest readers), I need to begin sharing life on our homestead with you all again. Unfortunately, first, I have to share why I’ve been gone for so long. This will be an unusual post for me, as I don’t generally post things of an extremely personal nature, and God willing I’ll never have to do anything like this again.
On March 12tth of this year my only nephew attempted a violent suicide. The next day, on March 13th, I stood at his bedside as he died. Charlie was more like a little brother than a nephew and my heart has had a piece torn out.
The world took Charlie and I should have seen it coming. If there are people you love who need the peace you’ve found or believe you can find in living a simple life; if there is someone who needs to hear the Gospel; share it all with them.
I love you Charlie. I’m taking care of your things. I hope we can be together again someday.
