Beer cans strewn everywhere, carpet terribly soiled and maybe ruined, grease marks all over newly painted walls-oh, I could go on. I didn't sleep well that night and went out to our friend's family room about 2am and got into my Bible and gave my broken heart to the Lord. Over the next 2 days He brought me to the place of gratefulness. Seeing our house in that condition shattered the romantic notions I had about the house and allowed me to see it in a more realistic way. It is a good rental and we will keep it as a rental and look for a home with a 3 car garage that will allow Greg some room to work on the projects he has. We live in a small box home here and have been happy-we can do so in Medford and be happy. Thank-you Jesus. " All things work together for good for those who love the Lord and are called according to His purpose" Romans 8:28.
|Our wonderful friend, Karen who so graciously let us stay several days and fed and nurtured us-love her!|
|Karen loves to decorate and entertain and she has lovely dishes (I tend to use paper plates at Thanksgiving so this was a few steps up for us:)|
|Andrea, Linda and Karen's husband, Mert who just turned 80-can't believe it!|
|We found 2 very nice pet friendly hotels on our trip. WE put a cover on the bed and Lizzy slept with us the whole trip-she likes a good bed!|
|We were blessed with beautiful color from our 4 Crape Myrtles on our return|
