I usually don't write two blogs in one day.But for some reason this day it was different.I had mentioned to hubstead about people doing their own homeschooling of their children because of these shootings.I thought that maybe we are going backwards instead of forwards.After all we are growing our own food,canning,making our own clothes,staying around the farm,raising animals for meat and milk and eggs,oh and cheese.Why go to the grocery store anymore.This keeps a person so busy there is no time for T.V. or even being on the internet unless you want to look something up.Back then it was talking to more experienced farmers to learn what was wrong with your garden or livestock.Some still do this too.If you wanted to go to "town" you just got into your horse and buggy and go.Getting close to that because of the gas prices if they go up again.During the winter if you were fit,you used snowshoes to walk on.If not there was always a sleigh or horseback or wagon.Back then it was to survive and feed your family.So much has changed in our world now.The movement of getting back to our basics are growing stronger in alot of people and I think that is where we are headed.I hope so.I feel like people are are just dead dogged tired of living the way they are,we aren't made to live in this world as slaves to money.It's nice to have, comes in handy to buy those special things every now and then but not like what it has done to the human race.
In most religions we are told to be in Harmony with the earth,God put us here to take "care"of the earth not destroy it.We are to keep it clean and bountiful and green and to teach our children what each living thing is.To show compassion and restraint.To help when we can.To not be selfish and give what we can.I don't know about you but I would rather have this than what I have now.To say wait a minute this isn't working.If this is what it takes then so be it.I would rather have my peace and quiet and a compassionate attitude than the all the money in the world.Someone told me if you aren't happy with the way you live then change it.Looks like that is around the corner.Do what you love to do.Live the way you were meant to live.You have one life and only one.And FYI I am not afraid of anything in this world except one thing and that's if I do something wrong I get the wrath of God on me. Yes I do believe this ,it has been proven to me over and over.Since we have committed to this adventure we are starting,everything has fallen into place like it's meant to be.God gives you only as much as you can handle.He puts you where you are suppose to be.This is what I believe.
Ok now I'm done I just wanted to share something that was on my mind ever since I woke up this afternoon.I wonder what it's going to be like to live like my ancestors did.But with a few changes?
