May 20

In my hometown, the founder's homestead has
been recreated.  It's called the Gray/Campbell
Farmstead.  They have moved the buildings to
a nearby park.  This is the barn.

This is a log cabin on the site.  It's a lovely place
to visit.  I had the pleasure of visiting Sunday afternoon.

"I will help thee" - Isaiah 41:10
Prayers for our neighbors in Oklahoma.
My heart is breaking for you.

For other charming barns, visit Tricia!

It's truly amazing to me that some homes can survive storms for a hundred or more years, yet tonight we see the devastation in Oklahoma...all the lives cut short and homes obliterated in the blink of an eye. Thank you for your scripture and sentiment. Prayers for all of Oklahoma as they mourn their losses.

What a sturdy, charming barn. And the cabin is fantastic, too.

think of the history behind the barn and cabin.
Thoughts and prayers go out to everyone effected by the tornadoes.
Right now we're having severe thunderstorms, tornado warnings in some areas along with watches in other areas with very strong wind; up to 70mph along with hail.
Due to the bad weather right now, some schools where let out early just for safety caution.
Right now I'm getting very heavy rain fall
Everyone, do be safe in you are in the line of any storms coming your way.

Great barn. Similar in look to a historic barn that sits in a national park in my area. Thanks for sharing. Neat log cabin too.

My barn(s) for this week can be seen here....
