What 1 Peter 4:7 looks like at MY house

Below is the most recent gift from my before you say, "what is THAT?"  OR "are you kidding me what a loser husband"  listen to the story behind it.

CrossReads Book Blast: Found Adrift by Pauline Creeden

Found Adrift By Pauline Creeden

About the Book

Welcome fellow drifter. I don’t know about you, but I’m easily distracted. If God set me in a rowboat on the water and told me to pay attention and not let myself drift too far from the shoreline, I’m sure I’d be in the middle of the lake before I realized I’d drifted from the shore. Then sitting in the middle of that lake, I’d realize I didn’t have a paddle. And sometimes I feel so far away that no one on the shore could possibly hear me. Have you ever been there?

And the family grows!

EJ & Abbie's Wedding

The beautiful woman in white is my new daughter, Abbie!  She officially joined our family on July 13, 2013...but she's been in our hearts for almost 4 years!  

Gotta say it's sure is different being the 'mother of the groom'.  I am right now staring at the keys of my laptop wondering what to type.  It's hard to explain the conflicting emotions I experienced the day of and prior to my son's wedding day.  And now a month later it seems as if it never happened.  My life did not change as his soared to a whole new level.

So that's 3 married and 2 to go.....hoping that the last 2 wait a while while I catch my breath......

Believe it or not this is the ONLY pic I got of my five kids during that weekend.  
AND even worse...
I didn't even get one of all eight of them.

The middle of nowhere.....

Ever been there? 

 The middle of nowhere?  

Well, if you find yourself there, look me up, cuz that has been where I've called home for 29 years.

You know you definitely live in the middle of nowhere when a trip to Walmart is an all day adventure.  OR when you mention your hometown people look at you and say "Where is that?"  Your explanation of on the border of Canada and NH in a town with a population of less than 200 (maybe 300 in the summer months) and with a grimace they ask "why would you want to live there?"  Um..yea...the middle of nowhere.
