If you’re anything like me, then as soon as you read the title for this post, you started singing “in the middle of the street.”
We bought this house in 2008, and it has been a HUGE blessing. We’ve built our family here–it will be very hard to leave it when the time comes. When I look at these pictures though, I see how much the plants have changed. Before we bought it, there was a large bradford pear tree in the front yard, but an ice storm caused it to have to be cut down. Since we’ve lived there, small bushes have flourished and died, and two other bradford pears have had to be cut down (in case you’re looking at planting a tree, I’d avoid a bradford pear). All this makes me think of Isaiah 40:8, “The grass withers, the flower fades, BUT the word of our God stands forever.” I’m thankful that in spite of any uncertainty or changes in life, I can trust that God’s word is still truth, and He’s on the throne.
