Is it any wonder that I've been having trouble keeping up with this blog, when I'm surrounded by such breathtakingly beautiful scenery as this? Talk about a distraction!
|Sunset--July 10, 2014 (This is just an iPhone photo, not retouched in any way!)|
This is the view from the back yard of my husband's childhood home, which he and his seven siblings have decided to keep until the last one of them has passed on from this world. (They won't give up Heaven on earth for anything less than Heaven itself!) None of them can conceive of parting with such a one-of-a-kind piece of real estate, and who can blame them? My husband and I feel lucky that we live less than five hours away by car, so that we can come here and soak it all in on a somewhat regular basis.
[Sigh]...within a couple of days (after a weekend trip to attend the wedding of my older brother's only daughter this Saturday), we'll be back home. And I'll try to get out of vacation mode and get back to business. In the meantime, I hope your summer has given you many glimpses of God's loving and powerful hand in this glorious earthly home of ours.
