April 28, 2011 What a Difference…

Last night the girls and I enjoyed some time out in the yard while Mark was at a meeting. I grabbed my camera on the way out the door and I’m so glad as I did… who knew it would be the last time our yard would look like that! This morning I put the girls on the schoolbus and it was crazy windy… branches everywhere. I got showered and dressed, came downstairs and looked out the window and was shocked at the change!

Last night….

(this tree fell behind the shed so it’s hard to see – but you can tell by the roots it’s huge!)

I am so thankful that we are safe and no one was hurt! A good reminder of what is important in life…. although the loss of these trees is like mourning the death of a friend. They were loved and will be missed!

Celebrating life and love and safety!

    so sad about that tree fort.. I bet that got lots of use….

    I came home to more shingles on my grass than on my roof and a trampoline that went flying through the air, breaking it and anything else in it’s path..

    an awesome reminder of the power of God who is control of those crazy powerful winds… sad about the things, but there is some comfort in knowing our God is THAT POWERFUL!!!
