Welcome to the Homestead Blog Hop!

Gather the Roses

As I began this day, a poem/song has been running through my mind. I hope you will be blessed by it, as I have been.

Here’s the video ( one of several that I like) of that song.

The lyrics to the chorus go…

Gather the roses

The lilies, the pinks

Think of the joys in your life

The briars will wound you

The thorns only grieve

So gather the roses,

The lilies, the pinks

All of the lyrics are beautiful and I believe you will be blessed.

Around our homestead, it’s been slow and steady, just like that fabled tortoise.

Here are a couple of recent videos from the YouTube channel that give a peek into what we do from day to day.

There are many topics, so check it out and sign up for free over on YouTube to catch each video when it publishes.


May you be blessed today, and don’t forget to gather the roses.


Homestead Blog Hop will take place every Wednesday and is for all things homesteading: real food recipes, farm animals, crafts, DIY, how-to’s, gardening, anything from-scratch, natural home/health, self-sufficiency, self-reliance, natural remedies, essential oils, & more! Basically anything related to homesteading.

Join us for the Homestead Blog Hop for ideas and tips for gardening, homesteading, raising animals, crafts and recipes.
