ok, this one is just for fun. this came to me in the wee hours of the morning after hubby left for work i could not get back to sleep. sometimes my brain just wont shut off and i think a million thoughts at a time. this one was kind of fun though.
i have always said i was born during the wrong time period. of course i know God doesnt make mistakes. sometimes i just feel out of place in this modern world. i love the pioneer days. i love everything from the hard working people,to the clothes. i love the family values. i love the simplicity of the life. although they were busy working hard from sun up to sun down it was a simpler way of living. i believe with all of our modern conveniences we have made life busier and more complicated. and at the end of the day they had something to show for all their hard work and busyness. everything they did during the day was to sustain their lives. they made their clothes and food and worked their land. typically both mom and dad were in the home. working the home or working the land.
i often say i was born and raised in california but i am not a california girl. i would love to have some animals on some land. maybe it is just because i love history so much that i find this era fascinating. i watch movies of the amish and i think i would love to live like that if not for their religous beliefs.
when i read the scripture verse psalm 128 " blessed is everyone who fears the Lord, who walks in His ways. when you eat the labor of your hands you shall be happy and it shall be well with you." i think that God is saying it is good for man to work hard with his hands. to eat the fruits of our labor.
what is your favorite time period and why?
