Have you ever dreamed of a simpler life, one that did not require long drives through tremendous traffic in order to make a living? Bob and I have been dreaming this dream for a long time now and are beginning to take steps to make it happen. We pruchased a small tractor as a beginning step toward that goal.
We hope to use it as an income stream for retirement and are working on getting a small business started by tilling gardens and other stuff that this machine can do. The beauty of this machine is that it is versitle with the bucket, tiller and box blade and it is small enough that it can get through a 48 inch opening. This makes it ideal to help homeowners with small gardens and other little jobs in yards.
Bob has always loved working with tractors and other equipment and when you do what you love, if you can make income with it, you are usually happier. I think it is fun to drive too.
I believe that God guides us into ventures that will sustain us and keep us happy. The day we first saw this tractor we were looking for a machine to rent to fix a mess that we had in the back yard. I took one look at it and felt something drawing me to it. The more Bob and I talked about it the more we felt we wanted to purchase it.
Once we have an established business we plan on moving to a more country atmosphere where we can grow our own food and live off the land. It is all about simplifying our lives and enjoying this earth that God has given us to steward.
Genesis 2:15 (NKJV)
Then the Lord God took the man and put him in the garden of Eden to tend and keep it.
I pray that each and everyone of you have dreams and that you are working to make those dreams come true. Enjoy your week and I will be back next week with more.
