Has it Been a Year?
This morning I noticed that Homesteader Life just had a birthday, I think they call that a blogaversery. It doesn't seem like its been year since I started this crazy thing. Looking back, I have to laugh, I never thought anyone would read it(much less take it seriously)
and within a years time it sort of took on life of its own. I had no idea that there were other Christians who had the same thoughts and ideas that I did. People were stopping in here, not because I was a gifted writer or that I "had all the answers", but becouse they were just plain thrilled to see that they were likeminded folks out there. They found a place to hang out where they we not treated as bonified nut cases but valued contrbutors. Frankly, the quality of the stuff I've been doing here the last few months has slipped a bit. I've been taxed for time and energy, as of late. The beauty is it don't matter anyhow becouse most of my origanal readers and commenters have started their own blogs and they have far surpassed this one in many respects. The whole idea of distinctivly Christian Agrarianism has come a long way, and our merry little band of bloggers has played a role in the advancment of this cause. I'm looking foward, Lord willing, to continuing the battle of ideas in this new year. One thing I would like to tackle is how the church as a whole has abondoned the concept of covenantal stewardship and why they have a negative veiw of creation in general. Stay tuned.
