So glad you dropped by today..
The long weekend is over and we are having a very windy and wavy evening.. sigh... I so love these kind of nights..
Terry and I purchased our last fling of fish and chips and sat by the Bay as the tide flowed in and the wind blew..
This time next week we will hopefully be back home and trying to get settled in..
The other day we took a little drive out Tynemouth Creek and I took a few pics of the Bay from their view..
As we drove down an old back road there were those sweet chickens..
Do you notice the jewel weed growing in behind them..
I need to make another batch of that salve.. smile..
I did get the moisturizing ointments all made and several sold
over the weekend..
Saturday was a very busy day in the shop and Thursday, Friday and Saturday will be our last days open and our Closing for the Season Sale..
The Art in the Park show was postponed until this coming Sunday due to rain..
Then on Monday we move homeward..
We will miss seeing our daughter and her family as much but then we will again be back to our little home church and our sons attend there..
Today has been that kind of a day, too..
Twenty-five years ago I was awakened early in the morning with a phone call from my Mom saying my Dad had gone..
Only 58 years old and in a moment he had gone to be with his Lord..
It was a sad day but we knew where he had gone to..
He had prepared for many years to meet his God and he always talked about the day he fell in love with Jesus..
He was such a testimony of God's grace and deliverance..
But we as his family are thankful for the heritage he has left us..
Knowing the way of salvation and knowing that Jesus made a way that we could be saved...
But you know there are still days when I just miss him..
Miss his sense of humor and his listening ear..
I miss his wisdom and his prayers..
I have told you many times of the the mornings when my sister and I would be awakened by hearing him praying ..
Not only praying for us but for those who did not know God...
Dad had a heart of a soul winner and he won many to the Lord..
But he loved to laugh and have a good time..
He was a people lover and everyone was welcome in our home..
He was such a hard worker and brought himself up by the bootstraps..
He always made me feel like I was able to do anything..
And he always had time to listen..
Such a dear dear man..
I feel blessed to have been his child...
Thank you, dear hearts for listening to me once again..
Just missing my sweet father tonight..
