"Don't wish me happiness I don't expect to be happy all the time....It's gotten beyond that somehow. Wish me courage and strength and a sense of humor. I will need them all." Anne Morrow Lindbergh

The fridge- part three

It's been awhile since I wrote about my non working gas fridge. Mrs. J., a lady in her eighties had an insightful conversation with me. She grew up on a farm in northern Manitoba. In those day's nobody had a fridge but everyone found a way that worked for them. In her family it was porridge for breakfast. Lunch was the big meal, supper was leftover's and sometime's that meant soup. There was very little waste she said.  I applied this to my own life even though I don't have a farm and it has simplified meals. To begin with rather than pay a repair man to come and look at my fridge I invested in a new All American designed and manufactured in the USA pressure canner. It is a wonderful tool and I can't say enough good things about it. ( My own opinion - I'm not getting paid for saying that) I bring my vegetables back from town and I can them right away. We than spend the next few weeks eating what I canned up. It works very well. My broken down fridge is now a beautiful pantry. I'm at the point where I can't even imagine wanting - much less needing a functioning fridge. Life is simpler without it.

Along the way

As I walk along the beach the summer light is changing like musical notes in a song and my thought's turn to the Creator who made it all. This space is sacred. It is His. "The land belongs to me.....you are my tenants and stewards." Leviticus 25:23 Am I being faithful in what I buy, the clothes I wear and how I live my life?
