That peaceful looking orchard had some excitement today.
Marlys called the Sheriff when they discovered a car being stripped.
And a swarm of police came quickly and apprehended those thieves.
The car was stolen in Fresno and brought here.

Unfortunately, it is my duty to let you all know

that roses do NOT stand up to 470 people

hugging you in a receiving line.

Please take this into consideration

for ALL future weddings and

Hi Michael and Rebekah!

We are so happy for you both and enjoyed the pictures of your honeymoon.

Did you happen to meet Sam VonTrapp at the VonTrap lodge? In May he plans to marry my cousin Elisa. So Lord willing my sister, Regina, and I will be flying out to their wedding at the Lodge.

Remember This Post? ~ Today is Our First Blogoversary!



I hope you find this blog encouraging.

Here is a photo of the mountain scenery east of our house:

“Your mercy O Lord is in the heavens,

And your faithfulness reaches to the clouds.

Your righteousness is like the great mountains;

Your judgments are a great deep;

O Lord, you preserve man and beast.

How precious is Your lovingkindness, O God!

Therefore the children put their trust under the shadow of Your wings.”

Psalms 36:5-7
