Happenings in Cascade!

This weekend marks the 5th birthday of our grand baby, Judah, who passed away 7 days later.  God is faithful to heal and though tears still flow when remembering his short life here on earth, it is such a comfort to know that we will one day get to hold him and hug him and tell him how much we love him.  Our prayers are with Sarah especially during this time.

It has been SO SO SMOKEY here!  There are small fires all around us but the big fire is in eastern Oregon!  It is hard to even want to be outside.  Yesterday I stayed in ALL day (and that’s tough to say when it is glorious summertime!).  I did get the financial books done for Harvest Frontiers, which is a VERY good thing!

We went to church in Horseshoe Bend this morning and enjoyed the service there!

Not much more to post other than to say I am learning that being grateful also means not finding fault or being judgmental.  I have lived for a long time in the land of Criticism where I made myself the Supreme Court Justice.  I have fired myself and will not get severance pay!  I don’t think I will miss the payments of bitterness and guilt that I received for my service to the court!!!

I am going to go bake something with rhubarb . . .  and lots of sugar . . . got to sweeten myself up somehow!!!

Peace – Out!

I am finding that being grateful makes what you have more than enough!!!! I am grateful for my husband of 41 years, my grown children and their spouses, my eight grandchildren, all the great people who bless my life, and for the undeserved redemption that is mine in Jesus! Hubster and I live in a small mountain village in the heart of Idaho and are so grateful for the beauty that surrounds us. Oh! I am grateful for my two doggies too!!!
