Our Backyard!!!!!



We are renters, so usually our backyard consists of a tiny balcony or a small pad of grass. Not this time!!! God has completely blown our expectations by bringing us the most perfect rental house, with a magical backyard. Magical? You might ask. It is a backyard where at night, in the dark of night, thousands of fireflies dance around and illuminate....it is as if you can see thousands of beautiful blinks of light. I was speechless the first time I saw it for myself. It is a backyard where you can hear birds, it is as if you are in the rainforest at times, you can just sit out back and hear so many birds chirping, it is delightful. It is a place where even if it is 100 degrees in the house and you feel like you cannot go on, you can go outside and find refuge and peace under the shade of our tree. It is the spot of many beautiful warm dinners, where we can chat and laugh and thank God for all of our blessings. Yes it is indeed a magical backyard.

Love, Love, Love!
