Spring – isn’t it WONDERFUL - the birds singing, the blooms everywhere!
A bit of gusty wind and storms too, but I love rainy days as well!
Pictured above is my father-in-law coming to our aid after a tree fell from the wind this past Wednesday. . .I am so thankful to the Lord that it fell in the direction that it did. (I nearly panicked when I heard it cracking and crashing since my youngest had just gone out to play, but all was well.) We did live in the woods, but we are about to get over it with losing most of our trees!
Sadly, there has been some other crashing noises around here. It was time for the house that my father-in-law grew up in to come down.
Last year’s April 27 tornado ( you can click here for my post about that experience) destroyed much of it and we had to bid it a final goodbye this week. Closing the door to that part of family history was difficult. However,
lots more memories are to be made, like eating out! I love to eat out! We had so much fun last weekend watching the performance of a Japanese chef as we dined at his hibachi. This fellow was most entertaining, not to mention the food was fabulous!
Lunch out at a local nostalgic mom & pop diner was a fun midday treat Thursday. The jolly owner sings as he works, jokes and cuts up with everyone, creating lots of giggles and grins.
Speaking of things I love, dusk is one of them! I snapped this while driving home from town last week. I couldn’t resist—it was just such a pretty evening!
On our way to a friends ordination last weekend, I snapped this one. (Don’t worry, this time my husband was driving. ) I was enthralled with the sky, so I happened to have my camera in hand. The biker was unexpected!
Sometimes unforeseen things happen. While spending time with the Lord one morning, I felt like He had directed me to a couple of specific verses to ponder—“Call unto me, and I will answer thee, and show thee great and mighty things, which thou knowest not.” Jer. 33:3
And “Now unto him that is able to do exceeding abundantly above all that we ask or think, according to the power that worketh in us,” Eph. 3:20.
As I meditated on these verses, I got a text from a friend that has a Christian radio show, telling me that he was headed to an interview with Alex Kendrick from Sherwood Pictures. Look what he came back with - a signed copy of Facing the Giants for my daughter with a message written directly to her! OH MY! I never saw that one coming! Reckon God had an object lesson for me as I poured over these verses?
I hope that you had a terrific weekend!!! I am so glad that you dropped in for a visit!!!
