Eclectic, quirky, and sometimes edgy…this is how things look from my front porch.

No Matter What, Trust God

Oh my gosh, did I fall down laughing when I received this emailed pic. The "Karate Kid" you see here on the railroad tracks is my sweet Lauren from next door.  She's away serving her county right now, but sent this to me.

Lauren and Liz moved in next door after Genesis and her family were evicted.  I mourned over that, but then God firmly let me know that the time for crying was over.  What a delight "the girls" as we call them have been to us.

Lauren is one of the most joyful and spontaneous people I have ever met.  She had told me that she was looking for a rocking chair for the front porch of her Craftsman bungalow which used to be the mother-in-law's house for my house.

Somehow she found a rocker.  I don't know about your area, but here in mine, folks put handmade religious signs along the side of the road.  Sometimes they even paint the side of a barn with "God loves you" or something like that.  I guess Lauren temporarily pulled one up and set the rocker on the railroad tracks.  This is typical of her fey and impish sense of humor,

Trust in the Lord with all your heart
    and lean not on your own understanding

Proverbs 3:5

Lauren sounds like a heap of fun. It's always good to laugh. Goodness knows we have so many days where we can't laugh so it's a blessing when we do.
