Heading to Mackinac Island (again)

Russ-Stick Acres, by Sherry SutherbyOctober and May for me = Win-Some Women

I’ve been attending for over 13 years, and look forward to every trip. And each trip is different, depending on who God chooses I attend with…

It’s hard to believe that just a year ago,

I was traveling with friend and fellow homesteader,

Homemaker Ang

to the beautiful

Mackinac Island,

and staying at the

Grand Hotel.

Arriving by carriage.

If you haven’t been to Michigan’s Mackinac Island,
pronounced Mack-in-nawww
the real treat is,
there are no vehicles.


Only horses.
And bikes.

My version of heaven…

I can’t wait to ride the amazing Shepler ferry

this coming week
and once again step foot,

back in time.

And…more importantly,
see how the Holy Spirit will be working within the Win-Some Women gathering.

And to see “J” again…and his smiling face and Jesus-filled heart!

It’s always amazing to watch it unfold,
and feel our Heavenly Father at work within the hearts of many

…sometimes even before you even take your first step.

Until then dear friends, God willing.

    What an excellent photo essay. Really enjoyed the 1944 movie reel. Recall Christopher Reeves, “Somewhere in Time” at the Grand Hotel going back. Recall Stanley Kubric’s “2001 – A Space Odyssey,” going forward, when HAL the supercomputer is losing its mind singing “Daisy, Daisy,” the bicycle riding music in the 1944 movie reel. The island is really a time capsule.
