Fraggle Rock

"Look at my Fraggle Rock Hair."

I just looove Rhianwen's hair! It's getting so long, but it's still so fine and light, that it just stands up in the air and waves back and forth at any breeze. It reminds me of the Fraggle Rock muppets.

This week we received some really sad news about Wally's cousin Ferguson. Ferguson died in a car accident on Wednesday morning. The strange thing was that just the day before this happened, I had been thinking about miscarriages and deaths and thinking how sad it was that all people had to die. But then I thought how comforting it is to know that even death is in God's hands and that Job was able to say, "The LORD gives and the LORD takes away. Blessed be the name of the LORD." How amazing! Ferguson was loved by many many people and will be missed! Life is so precious. Each day is precious. What can I do to make each day a day to be treasured? God has entrusted us with our daughter, a little and significant soul. In the end, she is God's daughter; we are her keepers for now. I pray that by our words, actions, love, God's overarching and more perfect love will be impressed on her heart even now and that she will love, trust, and joy in her perfect Father who only gives good gifts to His children.

Wally, Cousin Lee, Rhianwen, and I went to the mountains of NC to see family. We stayed at a hotel in Waynesville on Friday night, and in the morning were able to enjoy the view from our rocking chairs on the balcony.

This picture doesn't do it justice.

Who knew shoes could be so functional?

I wish we had pics of family. We were blessed to spend time with a good number of people, young and old and in between. Our camera batteries, however, did not hold out.

If anyone feels so inclined, please vote at the top of the page on what kind of bottles you would get! I am also trying to eliminate buying anything made in China after all of the recalls of the past few months. Besides which, I believe China as a government should not be supported...they have performed such atrocities to their own people. How could we trust that they would want anything better for us?


  1. wow the pic of Rhi in the rocking chair is fantabulous (my word).Glad you got to spend time with family; not glad you had dead batteries; How did you do the link to fraggle rock that way--fill me in will you? she is a precious soul with fraggle rock hair ;-) .What family di you see?

  2. oh, I think I figured the link thing out--that fraggle rock was funny!

  3. Wow. I really like your thoughts on death.

    I forgot to tell you that I'm engaged!!! I saw your post about it. I need to give you a call sometime soon.

    As for China, I don't like the idea of supporting them, either. On the other hand, if everyone boycotted them, it would make life even worse for the people there… At least until their government came crashing down and was rebuilt.
