The Road Less Traveled

We spent the last few days visiting our Christian Agrarian friends on their new homestead. 
3 adults.  6 children. 
No TV.  No cell phones.  No electricity.  No lights.  No air conditioning.  No flushing toilet.  Very few mondern "conveniences". 
There was peace.  There was tranquility.  There was trust in the Sovereignty of God for ALL things.  There was loving and encouraging one another. 
It was a time of reflection, renewal, and refreshment. 
What a blessing!!!

"Now about your love for one another we do not need to write to you, for you yourselves have been taught by God to love each other. And in fact, you do love all of God’s family throughout Macedonia. Yet we urge you, brothers and sisters, to do so more and more, and to make it your ambition to lead a quiet life: You should mind your own business and work with your hands, just as we told you,  so that your daily life may win the respect of outsiders and so that you will not be dependent on anybody." ~1 Thessalonians 4:9-12
