"....Your children shall be like olive plants all around your table." Psalm 128:3

Years ago...

I have often said how I long for the "good ol' days" when life was simpler.

Days when...

....instead of teachers, parents and grandparents.

....instead of friends, siblings and cousins.

....instead of neighbors, aunts and uncles.

....instead of a random neighborhood, a community of brethren.

....instead of kindergarten and school, homeschooling.

....instead of the nursing home, family.

....instead of the office, the garden and barn.

....instead of being all over town all day, staying at home.

....instead of going out for dinner, homegrown, homecooked meals.

....instead of the public pool, the backyard creek.

....instead of organized sports,  farm life and family fun.

....instead of a movie theater, a good book.

....instead of a facebook wall post, a private letter or card.

....instead of shopping at the mall, sewing and knitting.

....instead of blogging, a diary.

....instead of sharing thoughts on the internet, sharing thoughts with the family.

....instead of family movie night, family devotions.

"Therefore, whether you eat or drink, or whatever you do, do all to the glory of God." - 1 Cor. 10:31

Have a blessed day,
