Hello! Each Wednesday I share some of the photos that stopped me in my scroll while I was perusing Instagram the previous week. Here are this week’s picks…they’re a little different than the kind I normally feature, but I think you’ll see why they all stopped me in my scroll…
Literally took my breath away. How can a picture be so powerful, ya know?
Made me smile…and want to pet his silky nose. 🙂
3. @FarmhouseLuv –
I can almost smell them, can’t you? 🙂

I’ve shared Jo’s account here before (because it’s one of my favorite to follow!) but this recent photo and caption she shared really moved me and I’m hoping you’ll join me in lifting up a prayer for her too:
“This isn’t a pretty farmhouse post, but it is real life. Today was my first day of fittings for my long awaited new legs…. I’ve been waiting for this day since the end of January and though I am far from taking them home, the fact that we are here, and they are in the process of being made… it gives me hope for better days. I’ve been an amputee my whole life and I can honestly say that these last few months have been the hardest of my life. Caring for my two babies and our little homestead, with prosthetics that won’t stay on… falling countless times a day, not being able to drive or to be independent… and having to ask way too much much of my already maxed out husband, to carry my load… it’s been so very humbling… but the light is at the end of the tunnel, there is hope. Please pray for this process, my new prosthetist is extremely young and new to this field, so my unique case is a time of learning for him…. which is kind of disheartening for me. This is my 15th pair of legs, I know this process like the back of my hand because I have gone down this road so many times. He unfortunately has not, he’s learning as he goes which is great, but it adds more time to my already maxed out timetable. I’m praying that God will give me patience and understanding in that…. and hopefully at the end of this experience, I will walk away with legs that work and function as they need to and he will be able to gain more skill and insight to be able to help others who share my prosthetic complexity…that is my prayer at least.”
You are in my prayers and on my heart, precious Jo!
