Thoughts on the New Year Ahead

Well, I've lived to see the coming of another year, which is no small accomplishment on the mountain named Hunger. Last year had its ups and downs like an other year and I figure this next one will too. We are making progress in the journey to be less dependent on the "system" and more dependent on the Lord and our fellow saints. Whats on the plate for 2006 you ask? We plan to extend the garden every year. This year we hope to get enough new ground tamed to start market gardening. We plan to have a new chicken coop this year. We are going to try a hand at growing some pole beans with sweet corn, small plot this year to see how it works. I'd like to start a pair of oxen this spring, but it will depend on few things. Dad has agreed to look into the possibility of marketing some raw milk from the dairy. Another thing we're working on is website for our Heritage Hill products. We have been very blessed to enlist the help of fine Christian lady who has agreed to do some website design work us......more on this soon. We are having good results selling soap. The soap will be our first priority for the future website. I plan on offering a few E-Books this year. This is something that has been in the works for a while, but had been put on the back burner for spell. So we head into the new year with some projects to keep us busy. We pray for all the fellow Christian Agrarians out there, that you will make progress in the journey toward your goals and that would grow in the Grace of Jesus Christ. Let us continue to encourage one another as we advance the Kingdom and build a culture that honors God and His laws.

Scott, you so have hit the nail on the head with this. It is not to be independent for which we are striving, but rather, to be interdependent: dependent on the LORD God, and on those who are faithful to Him.

May the LORD grant that you have success in those faithful works in which you are endeavoring, and may you continue to be a city set on a hill -- a lighthouse for those many who look to you for information and inspiration. May He, Himself, do this work in you!

Hello Friends,

It is encouraging to hear of your heart to see a family homestead in Christ. We bless you in Christ's name as he leads in the "everyday" life of being a Christian. Agape, Mark
