A visit to Maryland...
My son, Jeff , and my Dad, Paul [almost 95]
My granddaughter, Josssara Makenna [almost 2], me and my Mom [Kay]
This was my Mom's 93rd Birthday [January 2013]
Her grandson, Pastor Jeff!
My Dad, Paul, enjoys the company!
My house is now complete with all the renovations
from the June 30th derecho storm!
A side/front view!
We built this house in 1973 and in December it was 39 years old.
The back where the OAK TREE fell - all put back!
My new shed. Another Oak Tree demolished the old shed.
One last view of the back with the new shed.
A song of ascents.
When the Lord brought back the captives to Zion,
we were like men who dreamed.2
Our mouths were filled with laughter,
our tongues with songs of joy.
Then it was said among the nations,
“The Lord has done great things for them.”3
The Lord has done great things for us,
and we are filled with joy.
Restore our fortunes, O Lord,
like streams in the Negev.5
Those who sow in tears
will reap with songs of joy.6
He who goes out weeping,
carrying seed to sow,
will return with songs of joy,
carrying sheaves with him.
I have so much to be thankful for. My Insurance Company [AFI] was great! A special 'thank you' to all the workers who helped with each and every task to make this job complete. I applaud you!
GOD provided everything needed to make all things new again! I praise HIM above all else for seeing me through this long and grueling process. It was a huge lesson in 'TRUST' -- but these kinds of lessons usually are! What I learned the most was to keep my focus on GOD HIMSELF. Whenever I was overwhelmed it was simply because I took my eyes off HIM and put them on some circumstance that was too hard for me. NOTHING is too hard for the LORD! [Gen. 18:14] I'm glad HE was in charge. HE is on the THRONE and SOVEREIGN STILL! HE IS MY FAITHFUL GOD! The LORD has done great things for us and we are filled with JOY!
Of House and Home Family --- I am truly blessed of GOD! Thank you for all your prayers.
Living in the Fullness of JOY,
