Promise Land



“While waiting for a Moses to lead us into the promised land, we have forgotten how to walk”


~Wendell Johnson


Though this may not be the promise land of biblical times it is certainly a sight for sore eyes and tired, weary hearts to rest. This neglected bit of property resides a half hours drive from our new abode, and although it is a bit overgrown, untended and seated with a collapsing barn devoid of salvage, apart from some weather worn boards and a metal bed frame & posts (as well other treasures that amass in old abandon barns) is a welcome sight to our agrarian hearts.

It will take prayer and a bit of mammon to acquire, but even if this is not the parcel we purchase in the end, it is seated in the heart of a community that holds values dear to our hearts and that's farming, fields & family. Time will tell.......................until next time..............Regards.

Catching up with old friends! Did you get this parcel? Have you a plot of promise land yet?

Blessings to you,

As i recall there is only one promises land and its in Israel (about 12 East), so i guess you can settle on the other one.
