The Old Photo

When we purchased our old home, the previous owners gave us a black and white photo of it taken soon after our home was built.
The little oval photo at the top of my blog is our home cropped out of that larger photo.
I've used a flashlight and a magnifying glass and seen all kinds of details in the trim that do not show when you are looking at the photo with the naked to speak.
In the New Testament chapter 13 verse 12 of First Corinthians (NIV) states:
"For now we see in a mirror, dimly, but then face to face. Now I know or see in part, but then I shall know just as I also am known."
I don't see the full scope of God's plan, but one day I will. I won't have to use a magnifying glass or flashlight either! That is so totally awesome!
Have a restful day.

it was nice to have you drop by. I love the old picture of your house. What a great thing to have. Thanks for the scripture I could use some reminding right now.

Hi, I just rediscovered your blog this morning and I am so glad I did. I love porches and yours is so pretty. So is Traci's! I am afraid I do not have the "exact same" porch as you girls do! Heehee! I read several of your posts and loved the one on "exact same." It makes you wonder who comes up with these terms that are so widely used. Humans are such copy cats, eh?
Have a beautiful Tuesday!
Hugs, Cindy S.
