Coming home to roost

This morning, I was going to make a Sunshiny Breakfast table, but we did not have any sunshine today :-(  So I brought out my happy Rooster pitcher to brighten things up.

It sure is a great way to brighten a gloomy rainy day.

Resurrection of Hope - a review

When there is heartbreak, we lose hope. When Vivian's fiance, James, is killed in the war, Vivian feels as though God has turned His back on her. She has given up and no longer sees why she should keep on living.

Henry comes to Vivian's rescue. Before James died, he made Henry promise he will take care of her. Even though it would be a marriage of convenience, deep down Henry has always loved Vivian.

In this sweet story, miscommunication and misunderstanding stands in the way of two people, confused about their roles. Henry is afraid to show Vivian his true feelings. Vivian begins to love Henry, but feels rejection by his cool demeanor. It takes hardship and turmoil to help them see what is really important in life.

Tamera Kraft wove a gentle story reflecting so many things that many couples battle. Husbands and wives bring old heartaches and wounds into marriage. But when placing their trust in the Lord, time and love helps them to heal. Resurrection of Hope is a lovely story that captures the heart of hope and forgiveness.

 (Disclosure: I was sent a copy of this book by the author for review. I was not required to write a favorable review nor was I compensated for my review. The opinions in this review are my own.)

A trip to DC

Does this place look familiar?

Now I want you to pay close attention to this building. It sits directly across from the Smithsonian Archives.
Can see the balconies at the top of the building? Maybe if you click to enlarge you can see it better. What I wanted to point out is that several years ago, my hubby and his company made the ballisters that line the two levels of balconies.

Cool huh?
