New Old Picture

A blast from the past.  I was just cleaning up my blog dashboard and looked at a blog that I had set up, but never really used.  The reason it wasn't used was that a few days after I made it, our home burned to the ground - including the computer, of course!  You can see photos of the house before it burned, the ruins, and the rebuild at the site on the sidebar if you are interested.

We are approaching, amazingly, the two year anniversary of the event.  It was odd to look at this picture - looking into our eyes before we lost all of our earthly possessions.  I sat on the same stump that we are sitting on in this picture to call my family during the fire to let them know what was happening.  Weird.



We have all learned so much about ourselves and been able to grow closer to God through this experience.  We learned that God does, most emphatically provide.  We learned that it is just as important to be able to receive with grace as it is to give with grace.

This is a GREAT life!!!!!

Thank you for your kind words.

Wow, I can't imagine what you've been through with the loss of your house and possessions. So glad you had God to carry you through and provide.

It's so nice to see all of the lovely things here that you've sewn. So cute!

Have a great weekend!
