As the name of my blog indicates, I spend a lot of time thinking about home. Of course, my Heavenly Home is the one that is eternal, so that’s where I need to lay up my treasures, and that’s the one I’m striving for. But in the meantime, I have been given this tiny piece of the here-and-now—this nearly six-acre tract of land, this farmhouse, this domain—in which to serve Him. And, though this is in the earthly realm, I want the things that happen here to be investments in the Heavenly realm.

Sunday Snapshots: A Ninetieth Birthday Party!


We have had a string of Sunday afternoons in which we have not done our usual thing. We have had all sorts of out of the ordinary events, including a baby shower, sickness, an out of town wedding sickness, and a birthday party. 

Yesterday, we attended a ~90th~ birthday celebration for Ron's uncle! His children, grandchildren, and great-grandchildren honored him with a lovely surprise party (he was truly surprised!), and the room was filled with family and friends and good food and festive decorations. There were games, old and new photos in a slide show, music, words of wisdom, and a few (happy) tears. Uncle Paul is still healthy, active, and keen, and attributes at least some of his mental acuity to daily word search puzzles. He is quick to tell you, though, that the Lord has blessed him!


Even to your old age, I am He, and even to gray hairs I will carry you!
I have made, and I will bear; even I will carry you, and will deliver you. 
Isaiah 46:4
