Just as I returned from CA and AZ and thought I would be home for a while to get Spring projects done, the unexpected happened.
We got a call from my hubby's family in MI and one of his sisters was taken to the hospital. She was having trouble breathing and was admitted. It took a couple of days for the diagnosis of Pulmonary Fibrosis and 5 days later the Lord called her home. We were in shock! WE have been in MI for a little over a week spending precious time with his family and mine.
Life is short and the unexpected happens. We know not the hour or the day that our life may end but I'm thankful that I know the one who holds my future in his hand. God is in control and his grace is sufficient to get us through the trials.
We missed some of the blooming in SC but not all! It's soooooo good to be home! It was cold and rainy in MI for most of time we were there. We even saw snow flurries one morning. (Yuk!) I think we had two sunny days---that's it!
This time of year is beautiful in the Carolina's. We have so many flowering trees and shrubs. This is a tree in our backyard. The color is so vibrant. We have a couple of Autumn Blooming Cherry trees in the backyard, too.
This is a Japanese Tulip tree in our front yard. It's so pretty when it blooms but doesn't last long. It didn't help that we had a storm with hail last week. That knocked a lot of blooms off.
