My husband used to laugh when I said my phone was acting up because he definitely knew there would be over 3000 photos of family, our farm animals, family, bugs, family, sunrises, family, our trees, family! Smile all of you who can relate! I love my family and I love capturing our precious times together!
This past year and this year held a sad moment when we found out my dad has liver cancer. His days are numbered, and we are now waking each day knowing we are blessed with another day with him, but my dad is ready to leave this world. He asked Jesus in to his heart when I was five years old, and he was 35. My dad and mom prayed together, serving the Lord as a pastoral family all these years. He is 83 years old and every day he asks if you have asked Jesus to come in to your heart. Are you saved? My dad is not embarrassed about his faith. In one of these photos, even though he did not feel well, and still had not been diagnosed, he put on makeup for Halloween and carefully made his way out to the back patio with my mom. So I may take a lot of photos, but I find a precious story in each one when I scroll back through them.
Last Halloween, 2020, my husband and I, decided to go all out with decorations and food! He spent time on the Halloween potion bottles and I loved seeing his cool and creative decorating ideas. Every part of our home and property had a decoration. Pumpkins were all over the front steps and the steps in our dining room. We wanted our home to be the place for our kids to bring our grandkids to eat, play, and trick-or-treat without having to go door to door. And, we wanted those very special memories to hold on to with our whole family and friends.
We are blessed every day with a new day. Even though these days lately are emotional and sad, we still have beautiful times to remember, cherish, and to make even more precious memories together. Amen!
