I wanted to take a few minutes to wish a special lady a Happy Birthday. This lady is Edie Wadsworth of Life in Grace. I ran across her blog about a year or so ago and have received many ideas and inspiration from her. She left a career in medicine in order to stay home and homeschool her two little girls. She lets us take a peek into her life as a very busy stay-at-home mom and shares her talents as a crafter, baker, teacher, decorator and gives us inspiration by writing about her relationship with Jesus Christ our Savior.
Two weeks ago, she lost everything. On December 22nd in the early morning hours, her house burned to the ground leaving them with nothing. She and her family, including the family pet were able to make it out, thankfully. She wrote about her harrowing experience here.
Her blogging friends decided that they would hijack her blog and wanted everyone to wish her a "Happy Birthday".
Happy Birthday to a woman that I know through her blog and hope I can meet someday. I love your sense of humor, your eloquent posts about anything from bluegrass music to sewing. We have a common bond in that we share southern roots and are both Lutheran converts. You have shown mighty strength, faith and most of all grace that I admire through this terrible time. I want you to know that I have been continually praying for you and your family and wish you many blessings now and in the future. I know that it has been a blessing to me getting to know you through your blog.
