The Land Of Sad Houses.....

Good Morning girls...happy Tuesday to you...yesterday my sweetie was home we had to take our car into North Carolina to have some work done...while we were there we drove the back roads to take some pictures of old houses...we found this little beauty sitting all alone on a wonderful piece of property...it surely had to be at least 100 years old...sadly forgotten...left to fend for herself...

For what reason was she forgotten I wondered...I could see that in her
"Hey Day" she was well tended...her property lovingly kept the bushes in the front were still beautiful...I couldn't help but wonder how many years had gone by since any human had stepped up her porch steps....

She has sat empty for a long time though because mother nature has certainly taken her toll ...the wood is buckling...holes in the siding were obvious...poor little cottage...so sad...so forgotten...


This was the kitchen...as I looked through my camera lens I could see the dish liquid bottles in the window...lined up like little soldiers standing watch....

We took some time here just taking in the grounds...the petite size of this cottage....bantering back and forth ...trying to understand how old she was...what her story might be...as we pulled out onto the rain soaked highway I was quiet ....deep in thought about the similarities we humans share with the "bones" of a well built house....so many times in life we can feel like were in a land unfamiliar to us....


Kind of "cracked up" on the outside...unable to hide our sadness or take any steps toward "repairing" the brokenness we are experiencing....

Just like the sad little houses we come across....we NEED some attention...If your feeling a little lost or sad in your life experience today...I'd like to encourage you....to remind you that you are not alone...even as you sit reading this screen your heavenly father is moving in your life...you didn't find A Loblolly Life by accident this day...you are here because your in need of a special touch...a word of encouragement... I am here to give you a BIG HUG...in this little blog I have come to love so much....so smile dear one....our journey's are full of surprises....unlike the "SAD LITTLE HOUSE"....we have opportunity's every day to be WOWED...have a wonderful day...remember you are NOT FORGOTTEN...blessings till next time....Karena

  2. What a beautiful, heart felt post. I often pause to wonder how an old house came to be abandonded and left to fall into disrepair, too.

    Your closing sentences are very touching and real. Blessings to you- xo Diana

  3. Hi Honey, it was fun taking the pictures and they really turned out well. Unlike the old houses that can fall apart our dear Lord cares about our aches and pains and the way we look on the outside and on the inside........He has promised that we will have "eternal" life, and even if our body gets old and run down, we will be restored to the most beautiful and eternal life in Heaven, beauty beyond anything we can imagine!
