I'm squealing with delight because I have buttons again! Not cute sewing buttons this time but blogger buttons! Yall probably heard me this morning praying over my computer. It's been so frustrating because everything on my end of my blog has been totally out of whack. But I got on a different computer and it all seemed fine? -- I'm not questioning what the problem was anymore... just glad everything seems to be working again! Thankyou Lord!
So much has happened in the last week; I barely know where to start.
I take that back... I know exactly where to start: thanking God. I'm telling ya; seeing what we have this week, and how close the tornadoes were to our own little home sweet home, puts "life" in perspective. We should always live like there may not be a tomorrow.
I took a few pictures of some of the damage in our area but decided to only share this one as there are no people in this shot. (I wouldn't want to offend anyone.) Anyways; this was a typical site in the town of Clarksville. Lots of downed power lines, and trees down, roofs taken off and several homes literally wiped out. They said on the news that there were actually two tornadoes that hit Clarksville. -- But elec is coming back on for most people I think now and people are mostly just thanking God and trying to clean up.
Yesterday the sun finally started to shine again and I spent the day mowing and weed eating etc. I took a few pictures the morning of the tornado "day" as the night before that storm, we had another come through and it blew so hard, with more torrential rain and even hail. When I went out to the garden, our corn was layin down... and also the sunflowers. The tomatoes had broken stems and looked plumb pitiful. Knowing more severe weather was coming, I trimmed all the tomato plants and tied them up for support. I'm so glad I did. When I went out a while ago, I was amazed looking at our corn coz it's standing back up!- and everything looks really good inspite of what it's been through. I've so gotta take after pictures today to share here, as well as record in my garden journal. I also want to show you the garden chair I worked on last night. Myguy even came out and helped me when he saw me carrying the cirular saw and drill off to the potting shed. lol I'm not quite finished with it but hope to today! It needs some final touches and needs flowers! I started to put some sweet potato vine in it, but decided ... nope;... we need color in this one!
Hope to write more this afternoon/evening.
Have a blessed day everyone!
For we know that if our earthly house of this tabernacle were dissolved, we have a building of God, an house not made with hands, eternal in the heavens. 2 Cor: 5:1
