As I shared previously that things have not been the greatest lately, well it rain really, really heavy last night and part of our basement was flooded. There was no way we could have removed the water ourselves so we had a Carpet cleaner bring a machine in to remove it, they left behind 2 blowers to help dry the rest. In our basement we have fruit celler, I used it mainly for storage. The water came from a drain in the room, so some boxes in the room were ruined.

I kept saying to myself, "What next?" So this morning I started to clear out the fruit celler and as I cleared it out I found 2 boxes of cards and letters from as far back as 1980. I also found this letter that just made me laugh and made me cry at the same time. It's funny how the Lord will bring you out of feeling sorry for yourself or a trial just by a simple letter. This letter was given to me by my daughter Danielle when she as around 7 or 8 years old. Thank you, Lord and thank you my Dani-girl.

Here is exactly how she wrote it.......

I love you!!!

hungka-hungka bern-in-love

Thank you Lord for my dear daughter Dani and all my children.

Aw, what a sweet letter! I am so sorry about the flooding. Some houses next to me have had bad problems with flooding. It is just awful, I know.

That's great... The Bible says that children are a “heritage of the Lord” (Psalm 127:3), and they are!

Sorry I have not been around here too much lately. I am much busier now than while in the US so I read far fewer blogs and try to concentrate more on my own. It was good to see your comment the other day!
