A Picture is Worth A Thousand Words

A Picture is Worth A Thousand Words

The story of The Cedars truly is the story of many gifts and blessings. If we sat down over a very large cup of coffee and talked rather quickly we might be able to list many of them.

Timing, people coming in to our lives, gifts of money, “chance meetings”, incredible new friendships are flowing in to us and we can only conclude that The Cedars is meant to be and that Bill and I have simply been tasked with being its doula.

There is another theme at The Cedars. Bill. The Cedars is attracting Bills. This past week I enjoyed hanging out there with 4 of them. We are toying with numbering them. If you are reading this and your name is Bill, don’t be surprised if you end up involved somehow, lol.

This week Agent Bill had his cousin, Bill Bowman, come from Fredericksburg and shoot aerial photos and video. Sometimes when you are walking 20 acres it is hard to keep your bearings (for me at least). These photos will help us in planning the layout of the entire site. They help us have perspective on where the neighbors are, where the bare spots are, how buildings relate to the other spaces.

Thanks again to Billy Orr for his photographic contributions this week! (BillyOrr.com)

Meet 3 of the Bills, Marilyn and the drone:

 Here is a great shot of the whole piece of land as it is today:


(The leadership coach in me can’t help but point out the obvious analogy here - when we can step back from a situation and look at the big picture clarity comes!)

Marilyn holding bluebonnet seeds:


If you are a Texan gardener you likely know what I’m holding here. Bluebonnet seeds. No Texas ranch is complete without them, in my opinion! We had fun planting a pound of these seeds this past week and are hoping we will see some flowers in the spring! (If you are from the New England or the Maritimes, think short purple lupins!)

We are living now with eyes wide open to see the gifts that come our way for The Cedars. Your encouragement and interest is a gift we treasure. Thanks for reading.

Bill and Marilyn Orr

Hey there this is kinda of off topic but I
was wanting to know if blogs use WYSIWYG editors or if you have to manually code with HTML.
I'm starting a blog soon but have no coding skills so
I wanted to get guidance from someone with experience. Any help would be greatly appreciated!
