Leaving Legacies....."(He) Made a Difference"

While "our men" golfed, my mother, two sisters, a niece and I
enjoyed a morning at Sauder Village (Archbold, OH),
Ohio's Largest Living History Destination.
Two Sauder furniture factories, this lovely village depicting life and crafts of an earlier time period, a large inn, an impressive auditorium, campgrounds,
gift shops and a great restaurant are only a few legacies left by a simple, hard-working and generous gentleman, Erie Sauder.

We enjoyed each others company and were blessed by yet more beautiful weather.
I was also reminded of the potential and beauty
of a life lived in simplicity and service for others.
"Erie made a difference"!

Jeremiah 6:16: "So now the Lord says, 'Stop right where you are!
Look for the old, godly way, and walk in it.
Travel its path, and you will find rest for your souls.'"


  1. I enjoy going back to the museum occassionally. I'm glad the weather co-operated. What a nice day for all of you.

  2. Your day sounds so lovely and to be able to enjoy it with your mother, sisters and niece, how wonderful is that? God Bless my friend.....:-) Hugs

  3. Hi Rebecca,
    I so enjoyed this post,I am always so blessed when I see family members get together. The scripture you shared today is wonderful!!
    I want to comment on your new found mantle and fireplace. Your husband did a great transformation, I know you will enjoy it. I agree HE is still working on me!! I have really missed visiting with everyone , and hope to find some way to be more faithful about visiting. I am always inspired when I visit yuu.

  4. Since I have purchased Sauder furninture in the past, it was wonderful to get this information on the man himself and it makes the furniture even more special.
    Thank you!
    So happy that you had such a blessed day too!
