Oh Where, Oh Where, has this Blogger Gone?

I suppose I am MIA because I broke my habit of blogging... Or perhaps Facebook has ruined me because of the simplicity of updating the world. No effort at all there. Just click and upload photos easily! No need for long drawn-out explanations. Just a status. Just a sentence. One measly little teeny tiny quote. Minimal proof-reading... Only people I know can read what I post. No one I don't know! So less worries there. Well then why am I blogging today? Well, I was just rereading my birth story for Justus and tearing up at the memory and thought, I really need to try to blog a little more often because it is so nice to go back and read about certain events. Like that special home birth! So I will attempt to blog more. I'm not promising anything because I am pretty busy! But I am gonna give it the ol' college try, whatever the heck that means. :)

Maybe I would feel more motivated if people actually posted comments. (hint-hint)

Any why the pic? Because tonight, I wrestled with a 3-year-old who did not want a hair cut. He screamed the entire time but I triumphed! Then he screamed as I trimmed his 3-inch finger nails... Again, point for ME!

Wendell August Forge Fire

For 27 years, my mother has worked for a wonderful company in Grove City, PA:
Wendell August Forge.
Today, the building burned to the ground, but not the hearts of the people who work there.

As we view the photos of this tragic loss I am reminded of this scripture:

To appoint unto them that mourn in Zion, to give unto them beauty for ashes, the oil of joy for mourning, the garment of praise for the spirit of heaviness; that they might be called trees of righteousness, the planting of the LORD, that he might be glorified. Isaiah 61:2-4

We are thankful that No one was hurt, PRAISE THE LORD!
The owner is a Godly man who led his staff in prayer.
That God is truly in control even in the midst of confusion.
