My Sister's Diagnosis

This is a photo I took of a butterfly bush in  my garden last week.

It is also the verse that I sent my sister Chris who lives in Pennsylvania.

She was diagnosed with inflammatory breast cancer on August 5.

{our wedding anniversary}

It was quite a shock to us and to her as it came on very fast.

No. Family. History.

This is different than your typical "find a lump" breast cancer.

Google it and you will find out more information than you ever want to know.

Chris is 15 months older than I am and I love her dearly.

She is also a pastor's wife.

Please , please bombard heaven on her behalf against this dreadful disease.

She starts chemo next week.

She has already been so strong through the diagnosis and I know she will
continue to be. She also can still say that


He is her Savior,  her Redeemer and we are trusting in Him to
be her healer.

Treasure TROVE

We visited our son and his family in Indiana this weekend and they showed us his new
work place in Roanoke, Indiana and they also took us to a few shops in this quaint little town.

TROVE was my favorite!

It is located at 270 North Main Street in Roanoke, Indiana.

There is also a TROVE barn and these first few photos are of some of the goodies in the barn.


Aren't these lights made out of clay pots so neat?

Fell in LOVE with this ladder.


This building is the main store. They had so many wonderful treasures inside.

Sorry for the quality of some of the photos.
I am afraid that my camera has seen better days for indoor shots or else
I STILL don't know what I am doing. HA!
I do not like to use a flash so I contend with a myriad of blurry photos to weed through.

I just thought the building and the landscaping was beautiful!

I hope you enjoyed your mini tour. If you are ever in Roanoke, Indiana be sure
to stop will love it!
