First Fire of the Year

It appears as if the short rains have arrived here in Tanzania. In the past four days, it has not stopped raining but for a few hours here and there. It has been wonderful for all the plants.

    That fireplace doesn’t look real, looks like an illustration out of an old book……how cool! One day I’m going to have a fireplace too….I’m so glad God blessed you with that! He does great things for us when He gives us things that aren’t “needs” but things that He knows will touch our hearts.
    Joy exaggerates.
    Love, Mom
