The last several weeks has been devastating and Hurricane Irma even made its way to the mountains. There is widespread destruction even in the Asheville area. Big oaks have been uprooted and fallen on homes and cars. Bob and I sit and watched the trees in our backyard sway and bend like we have never seen but thankfully they withstood the pressure. My best friend has been without power for two days. I want to quote someone whose words reflect my feelings:
“Our hearts are broken by image after image of homes lost and lifelong memories washed away. The fact is that these hurricanes and their aftermath have occurred; the way we respond to this adversity defines us as a company and as a people and caring neighbor. God is good and with His healing hands, along with the hands of neighbor helping neighbor, Texas, Florida and the Caribbean will move forward and be greater, bigger, and shinier than ever.” – Aaron Walters, Altar’d State Chairman and CEO
And I hope these photos will bring a little joy to your day:
On my back porch!
A little decorating inside too!
I am moving forward with creativity and joy while continuing to pray and help where I can. Thank you Aaron Walters for your generosity and for your words of wisdom. May the Joy of the Lord be in our hearts.
Thank you friends for joining me.
