Trip to Grandma's old farm..


Some appointments are just divine.. We had planned on possibly visiting Grandma's old farm, but it ended up being a last minute decision that I am so glad we made. It was fun revisiting the place where many Christmases were spent. I have fond memories of Grandma's old house. Jeremy brought me there to meet his Grandma just a few short days after we started dating. I felt immediately welcomed in, and that feeling never left.. We showed up unexpectedly, but Sherri (the new owner) warmly welcomed us anyways! We looked around outside and all of the old barns, and then sweet Sherri allowed us to go inside and see all the beautiful work they have done in the house. As we were speaking it came up that her sisters 26-year-old husband had just passed away. My heart broke as Sherri broke down and told us of the difficult time her family was going through. My husband, my mother-in-law, and I surrounded her and prayed. It was one of those moments that I knew God had led us to that place for reasons that far surpassed my wanting to see the old barn. I truly believe that the Lord brought us there for Sherri. We were not able to mend all the brokenness she was experiencing, but we were able to bring encouragement and ask for God's presence to be with her and her family. I am so thankful for the leading of the Lord..
