When the view is threatened....




Yes, that is a sunrise progression of pictures and yes I did take the pictures while sitting on my deck.   I have been very blessed to have a wonderful view since moving to Iowa.   

Sadly, my view is going to get built on...:(   I have already cried some tears and questioned it but deep down there is nothing I can do to fight it.   I do not own the land across the street so it makes sense that the city would want to build on it and make some money off it. 

You see the reason I really struggled with this news is first my view will be limited but also because the distillery wants to expand and because a new brewery wants to build.  

In many states there are laws that prohibit an alcohol establishment to be within so many feet of a church, daycare, or school.   Sadly, my community  does not hold that rule or regulation because there is a daycare a couple doors down and my church right across the street from this distillery and soon to be brewery.  

I have been praying for my miracle and I know God can do what he needs and wants to do but deep down I feel like God has been telling me to stop being selfish and enjoy the view you have currently and don't take it for granted.   So I wake up every day looking out at the view!   I may have cried several tears and wondered why my view would soon be gone but again God keeps reminding me that I need to just have a thankful heart for the view until it is built upon.  

God is working on my sad heart and putting things into different perspective for me.

Knot Genie Review and Giveaway

If you have a little girl and have not heard of the Knot Genie then you need to watch the following video:   "The Knot Genie™ and Teeny Genie™ Detangling Brushes were created for every mom that has endured the foot stomping and screaming matches that come with brushing their child's hair. With the Knot Genie, even the curliest, most knotted up hair practically slips through the unique bristle configuration – gently and painlessly. Try the Knot Genie on your kids (or on yourself) – you'll be amazed by the ease of brushing, as well as how it virtually stops breakage and split ends. You've wished for hair brushing standoffs to end. Wish granted." My Review:  Thanks to the Knot Genie for sending me the product to conduct my review.  I was not paid for this review and all opinions expressed are 100% mine.  I know I have grown so tired of my daughter coming to tears every morning when we did her hair. I was becoming to think she was the most
