Been a bit busy lately.

Wow, it's been a while. When I wrote that last post I was commuting 130 miles each way to work. Somehow I just didn't have a lot of energy for keeping up a blog. At the same time my wife Susan's health started taking a turn for the worse. It continued to worsen up until that magic day in the fall of 2009 when we got a diagnosis of breast cancer. She had 3 surgeries and 6 months of chemo and radiation treatments and is only now recovering from the cancer treatments. All of her scans and tests have come up clean for the last year, so we're holding on and hoping.

Not sure if I'll keep the blog going, but since I haven't any readers it's not a major issue.

  1. I'm so sorry for what you and your wife have had to go through. My husband and I had been seeking a way of life similar to what you describe. We felt God leading us to this way of life but had no way of doing anything about it. He lost his job, we lost our house, and went through some pretty severe hardships. Yet, God still seemed to direct us to hold onto hope. Through intense prayer, we discerned that He was calling us to a specific town in Eastern Wa. By "coincidence", my husband was offered a job (through a chance phone call related to something completely different) there even though he couldn't find a job in the entire city of Spokane. After several months, he was given (it was really just handed to him) a job that we could only describe as sent from heaven. We are now moving into our dream property where we are starting a farm. I know that all of our hardships that we have had to undergo have been to increase our trust in God. We homeschool and ideally, we wanted to find a community where we could share our Catholic faith and our children would have friends who shared their faith and values. We had quite a close group of faithful Catholic friends back in Spokane, but none of them were interested in community living and those who were, didn't have the ability to do so. So now God has placed us here. We will wait patiently to see what He has in mind as we begin this new farming adventure in our lives.

    I pray that God blesses you and your family and that He fully restores your wife's health. God bless you.
