Our story was one of peace and love. A story that only God could of wrote. As I reflect back over the past year, I am humbled at the work of our Lord in our lives. I'm reminded of the passage of Scripture of when Jesus was preparing his disciples for His death on the Cross:
“Peace I leave with you, My peace I give to you; not as the world gives do I give to you. Let not your heart be troubled, neither let it be afraid.” — John 14:27
It is from His hand that he has provided. It is from His hand that our Homestead has grown. It is from His hand that he has chosen to bless us....not only with earthly treasures, but with love and peace.
Our journey has been a pursuit to live more simply. To focus on loving one another and living for Jesus. As one person put it....to be old fashioned on purpose. And God has blessed us in this pursuit.
As the new year begins, I usually make a New Years resolution. Last year I had made the resolution to slow down and enjoy the ride. I was always focusing on our end goal and not enjoying getting there! I think I held pretty good to that resolution. This year's resolution is different.
This year I want to serve Jesus more. To help others more. To give more, both of myself and financially. I want to spend more time in the Scriptures with my family. I want to pray more. These are my resolutions for 2021.
So Happy New Year from the Homestead! We have been blessed from the many, many kind words from those who have joined us on our journey through our YouTube, FB and Website. May you seek the peace of our Lord Jesus as you journey through 2021!
