Happy Birthday Edie - lifeingrace

Tragedy can strike anytime.

But it always seems to be even more tragic when it hits around Christmas.

This is what happened to Edie and her family. This families house burned down days before Christmas. Everything inside was burned. However, every memeber of her family was saved. No one was hurt. Even their pets got out safely. Praise the LORD!

Today is Edie's birthday. I have been reading Edie's blog for a while now. Maybe a year, maybe two. I have enjoyed her unique style, her creativeness, her homeschool stories and her love for her family and God.

Happy Birthday Edie!
You and your family are on my heart and in my prayers.

"Do not store up for yourselves treasures on earth, where moth and decay destroy, and thieves break in and steal. But store up treasures in heaven, where neither moth nor decay destroys, nor thieves break in and steal. For where your treasure is, there also will your heart be.
Matthew 6:19-20

"We do this because we love Edie. We do this because we don’t know what else to do. We do this because, though fire may have taken the house, it cannot take the home. Because home is Edie’s specialty, her heart, her gift she has made her home in Christ, and we know along with the Apostle Paul that “neither death nor life, neither angels nor demons, neither the present nor the future, nor any powers, neither height nor depth, nor anything else in all creation will be able to separate us from the love of God that is in Christ Jesus our Lord.”
