Oh the wonder of home ownership!

If you don't already know, our basement flooded this past weekend. Half of it was finished and was being used as the Rec/Family room. Now there is no carpeting and the baseboards are gone. We were devastated on Sunday but have calmed down a bit since then. Thanks to our awesome friends; Jerry, Allison, and Travis; and Anne's parents Jeff and Joan, we were able to save pretty much everything by hauling it out to the garage. We have pretty great friends and an incredible family. It's hard, but we are trying to focus on those blessings instead of the disaster that is our basement. God Bless our family and friends.

I saw this video and I thought, "Wow, I feel like I have hardships." It is so awesome that God has put people like this in the world to help us keep things in perspective. To give us hope.

I was just reading updates for a young man who, along with his family is experiencing a tragedy that all parents fear. This young man has battled hard for his life, to again and again be faced with the seemingly inevitable facts. I wonder how he or his family could find the strength to get through this? God is an amazing leaning post. If you are reading this, please take a minute and pray for Zach Peterson, and for his family, also say a prayer for all in this world who's hearts have been broken by loss. In our earthly lives it is so hard to realize the splendor of what awaits us in the after-life, greif is for those of us left behind. God Bless.

December is here. . .

Well I am just about to go get all the Christmas decoration from the basement and start putting them up. Josh is sleeping right now then when he wakes up we can do the tree together and watch a White Christmas (that means Christmas is here for me).
Thanksgiving was great we spent time with Josh's family in the morning and then mine in the afternoon. My sisters and niece's and I got up at 4:45AM on black Friday and went shopping it was very fun. Then Josh and I went to Ford Field to watch the state championship games from his high school Montague as well as Holland Christian who both won!!! I will post some pictures when Josh can help me!!!
