Robbed of our belongings but not our joy!
Hello! As many of you have heard, We were robbed this past weekend while we were away to visit family for Christmas. We returned home Sunday afternoon to find our house ransacked. Mattresses were thrown in the floor, drawers emptied, all cabinet doors opened, basement door kicked in ect. We immediately called the police and a team of 4 showed up to search our house while we all sat outside in the car. They spent hours at our house trying to get fingerprints or any kind of evidence but came to the conclusion that whoever did this was wearing gloves. They then did a walk through with both Daniel and I individually to determine what all was stolen. Even today we have discovered more missing items. So far the list includes some of my earrings and necklaces. Some family heirlooms Daniel inherited from his great grandparents including their wedding bands. Daniels stamp collection, Daniels coin collection, Daniels sports card collection, Our keyboard valued at $1500, Some collectible bottles of wine from our honeymoon, Some Mary Kay items including 2 pieces of my luggage to carry it off in. We were certainly upset that this happened but we have so much to be thankful for! I'm thankful that we were not home, I'm thankful for all the things we still have, I'm thankful that God was watching out for us and that there is so much more to life than having material things!
