Well, I may not have the resources to run a modern-day homestead, where I raise my own chickens and live off my own land, but if living with a disability has taught me anything it is that there is always something I can do, even if it’s small. If it’s nothing more than switching my son over to local, organic milk, then so be it. That’s how change comes for most of us! That’s how change naturally occurs in all God’s creation: one moment at a time, season by season, inch by inch…
…and one day, our eyes finally perceive something dramatic that has been happening all along.
How often we see what we want, or what we want to be, and yearn to be it all or do it all now. We get so discouraged by our inability to achieve everything, that we fail to achieve anything. I’d like to start bringing small somethings to your attention, if you don’t mind. In doing this, it will be the motivation I need to bring about small changes in my life as well.
Can we help each other make small moves – inch by inch – toward more natural, wholesome lives?
I will still write about things I’ve always written about, but this is becoming a consuming passion of mine, so I believe it belongs here. My blog has always been about honesty… honesty with ourselves, with our God, with others. I see natural living as just another form of honesty. There is something honest about creating clothes for your children, eating food from your back yard, being able to pronounce the products you put on your skin, and spending more time outdoors. This is the life I’m going to begin inching, inching toward… will you inch with me?
Are there ways have you begun inching back toward natural living?
Are there topics you’d like to see discussed?
