So, you see the new header?
It shows snow.
We don't have any.
It is in the 50's today and is
supposed to get to 60 degrees Fahrenheit tomorrow.
So....in celebration of this delightfully warm weather
I am going to post some of my favorite summer photos.
We will have cold and snowy days again soon.
But in the meantime I am very thankful for
the beauty of this day.
It has been a bit of a challenging week with our
vehicles. Each one in its own way.....
but God is good and we are just fine.
We give thanks for the protection on a friend
who was in a horrible accident this week when she
was rear ended and shoved into the opposing lane
where she was hit again and pushed off the road.
I looked at her yesterday and had to just praise our
Heavenly Father for sparing her from worse injuries
than the severe bruises and whiplash she
is currently recovering from.
I am praying today as our friend, Susanna, returns
from Eastern Europe where she spent time with Tommy.
She did not have a lot of time to blog but
seeing the short video she was able to post and
the few other photos show a much better situation
than she found on her last visit.
This week also brought the opportunity to attend
the funeral of a neighbor's mother.
Judy has been such a great friend to us and our Chelsea.
It meant a lot to be able to be with her during
this special service.
It was the kind of service that made you really
wish you had known the person being remembered.
While I had met Judy's mom I didn't know her.
I regret that.
What a lovely lady I missed knowing.
I'm so glad that Ellen, Logan and I were able to
go and that Georgia was willing to loan us
her car for the lengthy drive to the funeral.
In a week or so I think we will have all of the
vehicles functioning at a pretty good level again.
Chelsea's is o.k. now that it has been inspected.
Warren's Miata seems fine.
But the Buick and our Van are both wonky
Warren is taking care of the Buick's biggest issues today.
In the big scheme of things we are doing great!
I made a resolution this year to
be a better
It is way too easy to see the daily stuff as
so important that we are just too busy
to step out there and invite a friend to coffee...
or drive a ways to a funeral...
or send a little note that just reminds someone that
you are thinking of them.
I am attempting to be purposeful in being
in touch with those who have meant
so much to me over the years.
Whether it is YOU....
my extended family whom Facebook has reunited...
friends at church....
the Barrista with the gruff exterior at our
a lonely stranger that God places
in my path.
I want to be His hands and feet.
To share His love.
May He help me
that kind of a friend.
