Our Russ-Stick Plan (Revisited)


We have been kicking around a plan for quite some time now.

It's not a "green" plan, per se. 

It's our plan. 


It's about using horse power to get where we want to go.

The kind of horse power that comes with a tail. 


And dog power.  



In sync with nature.  


Depending on the season. 

Our good farm friends, Pat and Deb, with their beautiful horses. 


Sure, it may take a little longer. 

Good things usually do.


And there may be times we need to lean on the support of family and good friends

~ and pay for a special trip ~

just like the Amish.

But it won't be often.


Truth be told, everything we need is right here.


On "our 40".

At Russ-Stick Acres.


So, come along for the ride, and watch us plan to go backwards in time. 

Until tomorrow ~ God willing,

This past Saturday, the Good Lord nudged us... 

as our truck was rendered undriveable. 

(No accident...just wear and tear took its toll.)  


Since then,  amazing blessings have been poured forth upon us. 

We love being weak, so that we look to Him for our strength.    

My grace is sufficient for you, for my power is made perfect in weakness.  
2 Corinthians 12:9   

 God is SO GOOD. 

Count it all Joy!!
