Still Here!

No, We did not get blown away. Praise God. Things could have been much worse but the only thing that happened around our home is that we lost 4 trees. That's ok though because we live in a very wooded area anyway. Maybe now I can actually have a few more patches of grass. It has rained cats and dogs for the past few days so I decided that this would be a prime time to finish my shed project. I am ALMOST there, just a few finishing touches now and I will be finished. While cleaning out, I made many great discoveries. I found oodles of memorabilia that I didn't even know I still had. I ran across a box of love letters from my husband. He and Will stayed inside so I took my sweet time and carefully read each one of them. It was like we were still "boyfriend and girlfriend". Now that God has lead me to them again, I will not part with them ever. They will be treasured. In the stack of pictures, cards and letters, I found a birthday card from my precious Maw Maw. She had written in it how much she and my granddaddy loved me and how proud they were of me. Before I knew it, I was showering the card with tears. At first I saw this project as an unsurmountable chore. But looking back, I now know that it was not only necessary but also a blessing. I too found these pictures of my sweet time teaching the 2 and 3 year old class at Carolina Baptist. What Precious Memories!!!!!

Well don't get to excited, Judy. Remember it is still just a shed. It has been painted and definitely cleaned out, but it is still just a shed!!!

Love, Cathy
