Thanks for coming back after a short blogging break.

I thought I would share updates on all the events that have occurred in my small world over the last couple of weeks.


First, take a look at this:




That is my sweet 93 year old Yaya sitting in her chair AT HER HOUSE!  (sorry, the quality is not great; my uncle took the photo with his cell phone)

She came home from the hospital this past Thursday after having her aortic valve replaced Jan. 23.  She has spent the past couple of weeks in the rehab hospital and finally got to go home.

She is still getting her strength built back up and currently has an around the clock helper from the rehab center. 

God is good!


Now for an update on our friends, the Rucker family, who lost their home almost two weeks ago.

This family has been blessed beyond measure by our church, friends, and even strangers. 

They are in the process of moving into a home in their own neighborhood while the insurance details and rebuilding process is worked out.

And tonight the dad, Scott, was ordained as a deacon in our church.  His testimony was amazing!


We were able to attend 2 of the 3 funerals scheduled last Wednesday.  Two Christian lives were celebrated which resulted in others coming to Christ!


My sister and her family are doing great after the break in at their home and they now have an alarm system installed.    Unfortunately the criminals have not been caught nor has any of their items been recovered. 


On a good note, I found out Friday that some friends of ours who have been trying to get pregnant are expecting their first baby this fall!!! 


We have survived a week that I referred to as The Storm.

Even though God’s plan in all of this is still not clear, I do know that His presence was here. 

Thank you to all my bloggy peeps for the sweet comments, e-mails and prayers over the last several days.

That’s what makes this community so special and why I am glad I am here. 

Now on with the show……
