Average is a calculation that is reached based on what the majority does. The acceptance of average is why the world has no sense of normal. Normal starts with a standard that is attainable by everyone. Average is the standard for which everyone settles!
   The normal Christian life is one that enjoys the promises and benefits of the New Covenant. The average Christian life is one that accepts and is comfortable with far less than God has promised! By accepting average we come to believe that normal is above average, hard to attain, and beyond the reach of the believer!
   God wants you to live the normal Christian life of health, love, peace, and prosperity! He wants you to enjoy all that Jesus died to give! But the normal Christian life is only possible when we allow the grace of God to empower us to do that which is far beyond our natural power. In fact, God says:...the promise comes by faith, so that it may be by grace and may be guaranteed to a...  (Rom. 4:16)
If the message of grace did not empower you to be the person you want to be, live in the promises of God, and experience a whole new quality of life, it is time to ask, "Is grace really working for me?" Better yet, it's time to connect with the grace of God in truth that always bears fruit!

Blessings to all, the LORD Jesus has come into this world to show us the Father's great love. Above all creation, He chose humanity to make his home with and to call us His friend, lover, and temple. Who can understand this mystery?

"Above all else, guard your heart for it is the wellspring of life." Proverbs 4:23
Our heart beliefs are what give life, or take it away, from our daily lives. Proverbs also tells us that as a man thinks, so is he. So I question. Do my beliefs limit me, or do they empower me?

As of Sept. 17, We have been in high breeding mode with our darling cashmere goats. Boy were our bucks raring to go. You could smell them a long way off. Within 10 days, most of the does were bred. February -March will be a very busy months. The younger doelings were put with their bucks mid Oct. Hopefully they will all be bred soon too. 

Its time to start thinking about getting your starter cashmere herd or sweater herd (3 wethers) lined up. The sooner you put in a deposit, the more choices you have to select  animals perfect for you.

  • We still have garlic left. It is time for planting
  • In the greenhouse: tomatoes, peppers, eggplant, basil for another 2-4 weeks

What we are up to this month

Currently we are in the middle of harvesting cashmere. So far it is looking like a good harvest. Cashmere should be ready for sale later on in the spring. Check back for more info. Kidding will be happening February through May 2011 and kids will be available for starter herd, sweater herds/pet or meat starting in June. Reserve yours early for best selection. If you would like to purchase kids, we can be reached at Redeemers Garden for more info as to availability, prices and procedure.

Raw cashmere should be available later this spring for $20.00/oz. 

Plans for our veggie garden will begin this month. If you have special requests for something to be grown, let us know and we will consider it.

We may have goats available for meat this fall depending on our kidding rate.
