PSALM 139 — the favorite scripture of owner, Karen Ingraham:
You Are Fearfully and Wonderfully Made
"How precious are Thy thoughts of me, O God! How vast is the sum of them! If I should count them, they would outnumber the sand."
About 10 years ago, My husband and I left our home of more than 40 years in Southern California and said goodbye to our two grown children and a perfect little grandson. Driving away from our family was the hardest thing we had ever done, but God had a plan for us on the plains of Wyoming with no family or friends nearby.
My husband, Bill, had gotten a job as the fire chief at a refinery in Cheyenne. In California, I had been an active tennis player and ran a tennis league. I continued to play tennis in my new home, but it wasn't enough. Remembering I had made grapevine wreaths back in California, I started making them in my new home. I made large teacup wreaths and sold my first one! Since then, I've opened our store, where I sell vintage items and have even branched out into furniture making. I enjoys meeting people as they travel about and buy antiques.
Now, 10 years later, our daughter and perfect big grandson, as well as our son and daughter-in-law with two small boys and a daughter, live in Colorado. God is good! Who would have thought I could have brought a little California shabby style to the great cowboy state of Wyoming?
