My Sunday Post: After the Storm

Clean-up begins. 

The neighborhood is buzzing with activity.

First Baptist Church
members and families arrive early to work.

Good to have church members who are farmers.

I can not believe the difference two days can make. 

From this...

to this.

My Mr. H. is busy with clean-up.
The road is full or branches
and still a few days of work ahead.

Limbs have to removed
from our neighbors fence.

This is some of the damage...

on the roof.

Not sure which one is the bedroom hole.

Those limbs were like daggers.

We pulled limbs out of the yard
just like the ones we pulled from the roof.

I thought this sign around the church was 
somewhat ironic but appropriate. 

God may be asking his children 
to slow down and heed the warnings
for what is ahead.

You know that when the fig tree
blossoms that summer is near, 
likewise when you see
all these things come to pass,
know that His coming is near, 
even at the door.--Matthew 24

On my morning walk,
I found Spring among the Winter.

With a Grateful Heart,



  1. Hi, this is my first visit here, and I see you had a big and productive work party fixing storm damage. I love the look of your church and its pretty spire.

  2. When "Church" people come together, there s nothing like it. We've been on put ends. Helping, and being helped.

    That's what the Body of Christ looks like.

    Thanks for pictures that prove it.

    Love and Hugs

  3. Hi Bonnie, just stopping by to say how delightful your blog is. Thanks so much for sharing. I have recently found your blog and am now following you, and will visit often. Please stop by my blog and perhaps you would like to follow me also. Have a wonderful day. Hugs, Chris

  4. I agree with Wanda, a bunch of Church folks can really make a big difference! Hope all of the damage gets fixed quickly! Have a blessed Sunday dear friend, Spring is peaking thru here too:) HUGS!

  5. Wanda's right - church people working together can make a big difference. Glad things are getting cleaned up and I love the sign of Spring you shared!

  6. What a blessing to come together to clean up the damage. Nice to see a bit of color; hope for springtime!

  7. Oh my! What a blessing indeed to have a wonderful community. I loved seeing that bit of color. Blessings

  8. Bonnie, So glad that so many pitched in to help. I always say, many hands make light work. Blessings to all of you,xoxo,Susie

  9. I hope your clean up goes quickly. I will be so excited when I get to see some spring around here.

  10. I'm so thankful that y'all where not injured. A real friend helps those in need, it's good to have that.

    It's sad that all those beautiful trees are gone. BTW, I guess you've been warned that as time progresses, more trees and limbs will fail. Be sure to watch for that especially on windy days.

    Have a blessed Sunday. ~:)

  11. Wow. Bonnie. It sure looks bare around the church now, doesn't it? What a lot of damage! I love it when a church pitches in like that...that is what real community is all about- xo Diana

  12. It is amazing that people were not severely injured during this storm. Glad you are safe on the Georgia side. The Carolina side is slowly emerging from the downed lines and trees. I love the idea of the church family working together.


I love the friendships I have developed through blogging. Visit and comment and I'll be sure to drop by and talk to you.
