Clearing Dust

I wasn't planning on blogging but "new post" button looked tempting.

To God be the glory great things HE has done. Looking back at my life on this blog; what a life time ago it seems.

We have three little princesses now and one little prince. I am overflowing with thankfulness I get to stay home and teach and love these little babies and young children. Some days it's extraordinarily hard. Some days it's purely amazing.

I have a few more gray hairs now. I hope that means I'm getting wiser.

Little Lydia and Miss Joanna

I praise you because I am fearfully and wonderfully made;
    your works are wonderful,
    I know that full well.

Psalm 139:14

Flood and Fire

About three months after Joanna was born we were escaping a smoky building and watched our house burn. 

5 days after Lydia arrived we woke up to 6+ inches of water draining into our house. We ended up with 3 feet which destroyed most of our furniture and lots of other things. 

Wonderfully thankful all the babies were safe and we did not get hurt leaving the house. We had a nice walk through waist deep water and then a climb over a fence. 

Clean up/demo was intense for the remainder of the week. Seth is back to work this week and we're just waiting for the place to dry before we can do anything more. I guess we're are "homeless" for the second time in our married life. We have been taken in by family which is a blessing. Hoping this week will bring some news of some temporary shelter. 

Sample of the destruction the flood left behind.

Thanks for praying for us during this very stressful time.

Oh and a few more baby photos...which I finally got to work on today. 

Joanna is adjusting to being a big sister and Lydia is being an awesome sleeper. That makes mommy happy. :)

You suffered along with those in prison and joyfully accepted the confiscation of your property, because you knew that you yourselves had better and lasting possessions.   

(That's a comfort. It's just stuff.)
