They may take our lives, but they’ll never take our freedom!



How was your Easter?

Slow and steady with a good book and a roaring fire? Or manic and busy with Easter egg hunts and family gatherings??

Rick was away at the Mornington Tiny Home Expo until just before the Easter weekend, so we decided to stay home and get some things done around the place (we've got a few weddings coming up here, so there's always a list a mile long!)

The Tiny Home expo was fabulous, as always, he met so many wonderful people, and we unveiled a new take on a model - The Elki Eve Jnr, as well as a Dawson design that people seemed to really love!

If you haven't had a chance to check out the designs, there are lots of pretty pictures and videos on our social media pages. (A reminder that our prices are on our website under each model name.)

In this Easter break, we've had a number of personal and business incidents that have been challenging, and call it coincidence or not, the concept of Easter and its significance is all about forgiveness.

For us, the cross of Easter is a gripping reminder of what grace and mercy does in advance of betrayal and heartache.

Hey, we are just humans made of dust, so when these events came up, ready to dismantle us, we were pretty overwhelmed and there was a lot of talk about what we could do in our own strength to respond to the vindictiveness. (Smiting - there's a word we don't use these days, but it was one of the thoughts we had!) Then, in what we see as divine timing, we were reminded about the fact that an innocent man suffered a painful death, and extended forgiveness even when it wasn't deserved or appreciated.

 A timely admonition for us to do the same.

And in this journey we've been on now for a number of years, navigating the mire of governmental regulations, nay-sayer vocalists who always shout louder than the quieter majority, the social media trolls, and the personal vindictive attacks on not just our business, but us personally, well it's a lot to shoulder!

For better or worse, we are in a grass roots movement that is drawing the ire of many in positions of authority, who whether out of jealousy or lack of knowledge, want to see this type of living obliterated.



 So we might look a bit like a rag tag bunch of freedom fighters to the elite, but I would much rather be on the side of William Wallace, than on the side throwing stones behind ivory towers.


Freedom, and forgiveness, are a choice.


 Aye, fight and you may die. Run and you’ll live, at least a while. And dying in your beds many years from now, would you be willing to trade all the days from this day to that for one chance, just one chance to come back here and tell our enemies that they may take our lives, but they’ll never take our freedom! (Sir WIlliam Wallace)
