I know - I feel awful about it

I'm sorry I haven't posted in so long. I really have been busy and I still do not have internet access in the RV. My husband and I had a wonderful wedding and he is such a good husband. He always opens doors for me and even insists on going out and scraping the ice off of the car for me. It truly is a miracle that I found someone like him. Things are good between us.

We moved off the farm at the beginning of October because the weather was starting to turn bad and we needed to move closer into town. We are parking the RV at my aunts house with our two cute puppies. I have to go into my aunts house to get online, but I'm finally at a place where I have more free time in order to blog. I'll try to post more often in the future.

July update

We have been living and working on my sisters farm for the past two months. I got a 1978 Persuader RV for an engagement ring and we are getting married July 27th. Its a crazy month since we have 6 birthdays, an anniversary, the huge family reunion and then we get married and have our honeymoon. Life is very good at the moment, quite possibly the best it has ever been in my life and I'm very happy with the way things are going. I would love to post all the amazing stories that we have been experiencing but we don't have internet access where we are staying and I'm only checking my email once or twice a week if that. We will probably be staying on the farm for the next couple months or at least till the fall since there is a lot of work here and we can stay here rent-free.

Hope you all are doing well and I will try to post when I can, but it will be sporadic at best until things settle down and we have internet access again. Take care my friends!

Whispers of the farm...


Long time readers will remember that my sister's farm has always been an oasis for me on my journey. Many times I have found healing and refreshing there. I have been back in Oregon for 10 months. I have been on 26 job interviews without a job offer. Most people say I should be thankful that I even get job interviews and that is due in part because I have such a rocking resume. But let me tell you - after being on 26 job interviews without an offer it can be very discouraging. Except that it isn't. Every time I did not get a job I knew it was because the Lord did not open that particular door for me and I just needed to wait until He did.

I knew very clearly that the Lord had closed all the doors for me in Casper and opened the way for me to come back to Oregon. For the first couple months here I was very discouraged and wondering if I had misread the signs after all. Until in August when I met the best boyfriend ever and everyday I spend with him, I know for a fact that I am where I am supposed to be.

My sister and her husband both got laid off from their jobs. They began to seriously look at the idea of having a working farm that generated an income. They got a nursery license and a business license. There was a part of me that was jealous because I wanted to be able to work on the farm too - an endeavor I would enjoy so much more than working for the man.

My boyfriend and I are going to buy an RV in May and we talk very seriously about getting married then too. ("It WILL happen" he assures me.) We discussed how cool it would be to park our RV at the farm and help work it, and maybe even have some chickens of our own or something like that.

We had my sister and her husband over for a BBQ because my boyfriend is a master chef and his BBQ sauce is the BEST. I realized that was the first time I had ever had them over for dinner before. When you cook like I do, inviting people over for dinner is not really such a good idea. During our conversations I told my sister that I could help set them up with a website. She called me a few days later to ask if I was still interested in designing her website but she said that she would not be able to pay me. So I told her about our idea of parking the RV at the farm - and as a barter system - help them work the farm instead of paying rent. She said she needed to bring up the idea to her husband and they would get back to us.

A couple days later she called back to say they thought that was an excellent idea. So starting in May we will be out of the city and living at the farm full time. It is very exciting. My boyfriend and I took a 5 week class called "Seed to Supper - A beginners guide to starting your own garden" and planted our own container garden that can go with us in the RV. We are excited about our future.

Lots of love!

The Ages Within

Wow. I just read one of the most profound articles. If you can understand the truth that what is without you is also within you than you will be blown away with this truth, just as I was. From J. Eby Preston, a man who I have the utmost respect for:

God has plenty of time. His plan is the plan of the ages. Consider how many ages the Lord’s people have passed through since the day Adam and Eve were driven from Eden! God’s progressive purpose began ages ago, and will extend into vast ages yet unborn. In one sense each of us is a microcosm within the macrocosm. There are ages within us. I lived a Pentecostal age, and it ended. I lived out a Latter Rain age, and it ended. I lived out an Anglo-Israel age, and that ended too. I lived out an Apocalyptic age, and God took that heaven and rolled it up within myself. Everyone of us has lived ages within ourselves, according to God’s plan of the ages. All creation will come the same way, not necessarily with identical ages, but they will grow experientially into God from glory to glory, and God has plenty of time! God has brought us from Abraham to the Manchild in our brief lifetime, for the ages are within us.

You can read the rest here.
I'm sorry but WOW~! That so made sense to me.

Life is a series of answers. You just have to ask the right questions.

Whatever is without - is also within.

The kingdom of God is within you. That is the beginning of your search.

Lots of love my friends~

Cold Wind Blowing


It is the middle of the night but I needed to get up and write this down. The other night I had an amazing epiphany as I heard the wind outside the window but when I tried to write about it in the morning – I could not remember the words the same way.

I am beginning to understand the idea that no man-made authority is valid. We are in charge of ourselves and no man who would rule over us – in any capacity – has the right to do so. Even in the Declaration of Independence it states clearly, “We hold these TRUTHS to be SELF-EVIDENT, that ALL MEN were created equal and that they were ENDOWED by the CREATOR with certain UNALIENABLE RIGHTS, that among these are LIFE, LIBERTY and the pursuit of Happiness.” It goes on to talk about how should a government take away those rights the people should rise up and replace it, but that is not what I’m talking about right now. Back in 1776 those truths WERE self-evident but we have been brainwashed and lied to and indoctrinated so much that we couldn’t see the truth if it hit us in the back of the head.

I understand now, clearly, why God was not happy with the children of Israel when they wanted a king. The Creator is the only authority we need in our lives and wherever you are in your journey, it is because you have been placed there to learn what it is you need to learn, even as I have been placed where I am. But He has given us all things for life and godliness and even our faults and the mistakes we make, and we make some pretty major mistakes, are all there to accomplish what needs to be accomplished.

There is the story of a man who was living in the tombs. He was among the DEAD, and crying out and cutting himself with STONES – THE LAW. The adversary had sent an entire LEGION to attack this man. Yet, when the man saw the TRUTH he was healed and the legion had to leave and he was seated and clothed and in his right mind. The legion went into a herd of swine – those that would turn and rend you if you gave them pearls – and then THEY who FED the swine were afraid of the man whose mind was healed by the truth. Yeah, I bet they were – because those who feed the swine hate the truth.

There is a cold wind blowing my friends. The winds of change are coming whether we are ready for them or not. There will be safe havens and I pray that all of you will be protected when the time comes.

Lots of love,
Linda
