We went to Panajachel for the day, Crossroads Cafe is always at the top of the list of places to go. Once I got home and was grinding this freshly roasted coffee. I could not get over the smell, it was SOOO yummy, then it started to brew. I thought to myself if only I could have a scratch n sniff blog everyone would know the wonderful smell this coffee had. Here is the picture I took for you all to see, sorry it's not a scratch n sniff!! It was delicious....

Ann Crockett Reeves Duffy

My sweet Nana went to heaven last week. She was a wonderful Godly example to me and many other people. She was beautiful inside and out. I was able to go the the funeral and spend time with my family. As I was going through old pictures while at her house I was amazed at how many people she new and prayed for. It was a great time of remembering Nana, as the whole family gathered to celebrate her life, I truly believe she would have been pleased to see us all together. Finding little notes she had written, she expressed her love for her family, and Especially her Lord and Savior!!

One of Nana's favorite verse was
Proverbs 3:5,6 "Trust in the Lord with all thine heart;
and lean not unto thine own understanding.
In all thy ways acknowledge Him, and He shall direct thy paths."
