Becky's Farm Life

The simple life, living off God's land, one day at a time.

My new life’s journey

Well I can say I off to a rough start, but I am kicking hard. And by God’s grace we will make it.

Well for starters, the day Tommy went home, my truck broke- timing chain and water pump. So I got these fixed. But today the truck started spraying oil. Ok, Now I really want/need a horse and buggy.  But wait there is more. The Social Security Office said Friday that I would not get any widow benefits until May(a whole month and the first on the month is this week.) I am a little rattled to say the least. But then this morning I went to the food bank, and saw a family getting paper goods(plastic bowls, and silverware) so they could feed their kids as their power was turned off last week.  My heart broke, here I was getting upset because of money and my truck, when I do have so so much to be thankful for. And the lady that runs the food bank talk to me a while. Thank you Lord for her. I had had my eyes on myself and not others and God. So I got a spanking from God today. She asked about this blog, and I told I had not been here in a while. She said people needed it.  So I am back and now you all will see me start this new journey, my new life. Let me tell you it’s scary at times, as I do not do change will.  But I am holding tight to God’s hand as he walks me through each moment and each day. I am very thankful for my food storage. And everything I learned to make it through the hard times.


Thank you all for your prayers and comments here, they are such a blessing to me and the girls. Thank you again.


Ok, now I am trying to sell the small truck and the beef bull. Rent, power, phone bills have to be paid this week. So if you all we say a little prayer that someone would buy these. I was going to put the bull in the freezer, but we still have 1 1/2 cows meat in freezer and there is now only 3 of us. So that is a year plus in meat.


Some of you have asked questions that I have not gotten to, but I will this week, ok. 

Thank you all for reading my blog and may God bless you all.

Until in the morning,

  3. Becky,
    I agree with the woman at the food bank, I think we need to hear from you and this may be good therapy for you to write out about what is going on with you. It will help you sort things out.
    I remember when my hubby died, I was in the middle of remodeling my house. I continued to do that and I always wondered how many tears were in the paint? LOL. It was good therapy. I also spent a bit of time on the tractor weeping. Talking was good for me too. Just remember above all else, you are not crazy and you are not going crazy and you are not the only one who ever went through this. Its ok to talk about Tommy and its ok to cry.
    take care and God’s blessings to you and yours.
    Mrs. Olson

  4. Becky –

    I have been checking in daily to see if there was any word from you and if you were coming along okay. I’m glad to see you are back. Remember, as much as we are here to learn from you how to live a good, frugal, Christ centered life…we are also here to support you. So please, lean on us when you need to…we have very broad shoulders.
