Where Did The Year Go?Wow! In looking back at my posts, I see that my first post was July 25, 2010. I can't believe it's been a year already! If you want to see the first post, click here. There have been changes: I finally found a job after three years of looking, my husband finally got a job he likes, business trips, a new online store, a new vehicle, people have come and gone; there has been fun: our Gettysburg and Greenfield Village trips; and there have been constants: we still live in the same place, we still volunteer, I have a garden again, and we still love each other very much. It's funny that in the first post I was saying it was gloomy and raining, and that I had a program to go to, and today, I again had a program to attend and it rained last evening and night, and then some this afternoon. What are the odds? Although, the difference is that it is incredibly hot right now, and that is not going to change.
Our program, an 1847 wedding, was a lot of fun, and we had a good turnout despite the heat. We were all pretty sweaty after 3 hours in the heat, but it was great to be out there with friends having a good time. And the wedding cake was pretty tasty, too!

I just can't believe I've been doing this for a year now. I wonder what the post a year from now will look like? And I wonder what will change between now and then? Change is constant; nothing can remain the same forever, or it will become stagnant, old. Without change, we would be complacent and stop noticing what's all around us. God makes everything for a specific purpose in a specific time. Ecclesiastes 3:11-12 states, "He has made everything beautiful in its time. He has also set eternity in the hearts of men; yet they cannot fathom what God has done from beginning to end. I know that there is nothing better for men than to be happy and do good while they live." Amen!
