I Received Some Sad News Today

 If you remember my post from
the beginning of the week
I mentioned that one of my stops
during 'Girl's Weekend' at the cabin
was Peachey's
the Amish Store where
we had a wonderful homemade breakfast.
Beside's the restaurant this location
also housed a grocery store
with a butcher and a bakery
where one could buy the most
wonderful foods, always so fresh.
Upstairs was the an adorable gift shop
with some of the nicest things.
I have been shopping here for years.

Sadly in the wee hours of Thursday
morning there was a fire
that completely destroyed the building.

This is all that remains.
Please join me in sending
prayers to not only the family
that lost their business but to all the
employees who are now out of work.
thank you


  1. Oh, Diva - that's awful. Thank God no one was hurt (were they?). I am so sorry! xo Pam

  2. Hi Diva. My heart goes out to the owners and employees of Peachey's. That's terrible news. I hope the family & employees can stay strong and keep heart knowing that God certainly has a plan for their future.

    Hugs...Tracy :)

  3. Oh, that is terrible. What a powerful reminder of how fleeting this life is and to not be afraid...just LIVE. Thoughts and prayers to all affected.

  4. Oh that's so sad. I will pray that each business was well insured and that they will be back in operation soon.

  5. How absolutely heartbreaking to have that happen to ones family business and also to the employees that depended on it for employment.

    My children own a lovely restaurant and bakery and I know how we would feel if something happened to it.

    I know their friends and we concerned bloggers will keep them in our thoughts and prayers so that all eventually end well. Hopefully a new and even nicer store will come of it. Such things have happened before.

    How kind of you to send out the word for encouragement to all concerned!

    I want to thank you also for your ever so sweet comment on my blog. I am always shocked at how white my hair is since I was a very dark brunette. I even hesitate to post such photo's. And then you came along.... :) thank you SO much! I love you for that!

  6. Oh Diva this is horrible! Lots of love and prayers to all. So sorry this happened.

    I'm sending an air hug to you!

    love and blessings!

  7. Oh my goodness! How terrible. I hope that they are able to recover from this and will be back and up running soon!

  13. My thoughts are with the folk who lost their lively hood in the fire. These are tough times and we need all the prayers we can get.

  14. What awful news, poor people. All their hard work reduced to ashes. They must have been devastated when they saw what was left of it. My thoughts and prayers are with them.

    Warm wishes
