the Journey

Another hill taken today
Another barricade removed!.

Today is the 5th year anniversary of a vicious attack on my husband.
He was stabbed 3 times by a poacher and left for dead.

Someone thought deer antlers were more important than someone's life!

Today is also the opening day of pheasant season - just as it was 5 years ago. 

Even before the attack, I would stay home on this week-end to help Marvin
and to make sure hunters stayed out of our yard and out of our buildings. 

A few weeks ago, I promised my friend, Penny,  that I would help her
when the crew from the Covenant Church came to redo her roof. 

My mistake was that I promised . . . not knowing the date. 

This morning I was so angry that the crew chose November 13th.  
I almost backed out and was thinking of calling to say so.  
But - I was preempted. 
Penny called ME first to make sure I was coming. 
I think she had an inkling of my emotional state.

Last night's dream

Under construction.  

Today's devotional really 'spoke' to me today.  Especially after my vivid dreams during the night. 
It was based on Ps 84 - which is below.  

But first to my dream.

I dreamt that my parents had a new huge house. 

There was room there for ALL their children, grand-children
and great-grandchildren. 

It was noisy, but calm and peaceful. 
It was awesome. 
I've never seen anything like it and never seen Mom & Dad so content. 

EVERYONE was there!!
Did you get that?
EVERYONE was there! 
Not just the ones who are now living.
