Reality Check

Two of the greatest blessings in my life...
Brooke & Lauren - my sisters

I recently heard a pastor speaking about going through hard times. He and his wife recently received a call at 3 a.m. from their 8 year old granddaughter telling them that the ambulance was taking daddy (their son) away to the hospital. He told how they hopped in the car immediately, all the while praying aloud. Their diabetic son and father of 3 had gone into a coma and was in a critical state.

The son finally pulled through and by the Lord's mercy he is still alive. The pastor told how that phone call made him pause in the midst of the business of his life...
for a reality check.

The day after all this happened the pastor's car quit working, the landlines were down, his grandson dropped the cellphone in the toilet, and he burnt his hand while trying to fix the car.

On any other occasion, he would have gotten frustrated, perhaps even angry...lashed out at someone, or questioned God. But, that day, was different...

Why? Because he had a reality check the evening before.

What is life all about?


So...I sat there and thought and I am still pondering that thought, and that is why I chose to write on this topic for Unwrapping my Tuesday. Next time the little things that may cause frustrations and headache come into my life I want to take a deep breath, trust God, and have
a reality check in my life. What is really important to you?

MO Trip Part II (Sights+Happenings)

More pics from my trip...


Trying to roast my marshmallows without
getting smoked out...

Ooey, gooey, yummy!

The next few pictures are from Meramec Caverns.
I felt as if I was living in a Science book,
when I walked through them. I got to see many
of the things I had only seen pictures of in
elementary school...

The formation below is called a fountain.
Our tour guide did a light show to music on

Stalactites & Stalagmites

Goofing around in the gift shop!

Unless you are a Jane Austen fan you wouldn't have
enjoyed this play of Pride and Prejudice. EJ and I
completely LOVED this production that was in
a small theater not far from where she lives.

Lizzy Bennet did a superb job of acting.

At Lady Katherine's house

Lizzy, Mr. Bingley, & Mr. Darcy

I had a great visit with EJ and was sad to leave, however
I am so grateful that I was able to spend the week with her!

MO Trip Part I (Location+Scenery)

And...I am BACK!!!
I had a relaxing and exciting visit with one of my best friends.
She showed me around her church, school, home, and town.
I am so glad I was able to spend some time with her!

Maranatha Baptist Church
St. Robert, MO

EJ teaches K-5 in a Christian school; she is so
creative and has such a way with her kiddies...

I was able to finally meet her special young man...

EJ lives with another teacher down a country
rode on a ranch...

They live in the spacious upstairs of this house.
More than enough room for two...

Hot tub located on back enclosed porch

Guest living quarters for the week

Didn't think I would see use of this, but
one night we came home to discover our heat
had broken. The landlord came over and
stoked the wood burning stove...
We finally let the fire go out when the thermostat
reached +90degrees!

My chauffeur!

The winding road to her house
was beautiful!

Our favorite rock...:)

What Makes a Home

A house is simply defined as a residence for human beings, but my home is so much more than that. This is a picture of the many children's stories that I grew up listening to every night. As long as I can remember my dad has had family devotions with us in the evening. When we were younger these were the Bible story books my dad would read from. They don't get much use any more, but they still sit on our bookshelf - a glimpse into my childhood past and a reminder that God is a vital part of our home.

This is just a glimpse into one of the many things that makes the house I live in my home.
