A Comforting Tradition When Going Through Hardship

by Texas Homesteader ~ 

In my family we have a tradition. It’s one that brings comfort again & again. We each have a small cross that we keep with us.

The ladies in my family keep it in the lipstick pocket of their jeans. When things get tough in life, we can reach into that pocket, feel that cross and know this comfort:

We do not walk the path alone. God is with us.

I carry a pocket cross with me when going through life's trials. It's brought much comfort. The message on my pocket cross says BELIEVE! #TexasHomesteader

Living Life With NO REGRETS!

by Texas Homesteader ~ 

Most mornings RancherMan & I engage in what I consider to be an intense conversation about any number of hot-button social topics.

In the past these topics have included religion, law, politics, elections, etc. (groan…)

Thankfully most of the other’s thoughts are met with an energetic nod and the words “Exactly!”.

So we’re typically on the same page but WHEW! Intensity sometimes reigns at during these conversations!

But a recent topic? Life’s regrets.

Living Life With NO REGRETS! Quietly going about the natural rhythm of my days in ways that make sense to me - not some corporate head #TexasHomesteader

The Fast Life: Slowing Down, Living More

by Texas Homesteader ~

RancherMan & I decided life seemed to be too busy for the things we felt were really important. So we decided to slow down but live MORE!

But how? And what to replace our busy lives with? We took matters into our own hands to slow our busy lives down. But oh what we replaced it with is priceless.

Are your days packed, leaving you feeling like a hamster on a wheel? Us too! See how we've taken a hard look at what fills our days & made changes - for the BETTER! #TexasHomesteader

Blessing Basket – A Gardener’s Joy of Sharing With Others

by Texas Homesteader ~

We’ve all done it – that zucchini is relished when it first starts producing in the garden. But after a while you find yourself (and your family) growing tired of the excess. Even your zucchini-loving family moans when they hear it’s on the menu tonight… yet again!

But you hate to waste it. I mean, you planted that seed, tenderly took care of the seedling and delighted in its production. What can you do?

A few years ago I started something called my ‘Blessing Basket’.  Here’s how it works:

Blessing BasketL One day each week, harvest everything ripe in the garden and put it in a basket. Then share that bounty with a friend or neighbor. #TexasHomesteader
