Using a ladder for a Christmas tree

 photo IMG_8102.jpg Strange, eh? Our old tree was broken beyond repair. This was our quick alternative. My it is a bit strange, but we like it.  I have actually moved it in the room, but this was my best shot of the thing!

Ice in SC

 photo IMG_6943.jpg ICE AND ICE --that is what we got here in coastal SC. Lots of folks without power and lots and lots of limbs and trees all over the place.  photo IMG_6933.jpg The animals are taking it in stride. See the cardinal hiding below?  photo IMG_6918.jpgI am glad I didn't loose power, but some of my friends are still without!  photo IMG_6945.jpg A last look at the fox squirrel  photo IMG_6939.jpg

Pooh has it right/ so does Piglet

Man, I certainly have had days like this, as Pooh is referring to these times.  This has been one of those weeks for our family.

My son was on tract to finish his masters degree by this August and because of increased National Guard drills due to a possible activation in a years time he has had to withdraw. He was just starting the student teaching phase and would not be able to get the amount of days needed for this because of the increase in the drill times. This has been a hard thing! All the dreams put on hold indefinitely and now what? He has a year before any possible activation.    Our plans are often not God's plans for us........but sometimes this leaves us in a quandary!
