Monday's musings~


Woke at 430 this morning to take Ds to work...urgh..but it proved beneficial in that I was able to Bless my home before my grandson got here and started some laundry also! I was done with all of it by 730 this morning!! Yesterday Hubby and I worked in the yard...he with the aid of his friend, put in the sky light and finished the patio cover....it looks so beautiful. A very livable and enjoyable space. I busied myself moving the patio furniture about, and rearranging plants and what-nots, will have to post some pictures later this week.
A few of you have been asking about the lavender and nutmeg scented geraniums...I purchased the nutmeg at a place called "Summer Past Farms", here in Southern California...I know that you can find them at Armstrongs' nursery also, but the lavender scented one my sister gave me a few snippets off of hers and thus started alot of plants...they are hardy too! I could possibly send some out for those who would want a start...not sure how it would work in the mail though!!
Tomorrow I plan on working in the kitchen doing some detailed cleaning and a few de-cluttering missions. It seems as if the clutter just multiplies in no time, and I'm constantly doing this!
I have had a few things come to mind today...just incredibly thankful and grateful of the blessings in my life. I have had a few challenges i've faced, prayed about, and finally let it go and gave it to God. I seem to wrestle with it, try to fix it and then finally having to let go, and in doing so, the peace and tranquility return. I feel as if I've been out of balance, but slowly the scale is becoming more and more level, as i've submitted certain issues to the Lord as prompted by His Spirit. Its a humbling thing, and this journey isn't for the weak or faint-hearted, my strength and faith are built up everyday by seeing ALL that He has done and continues to do in my life. I am truly grateful that I know the Lord, He is my sustenance in life. I am seeing answers to prayers regarding my children~ favor, promotions, healing, the list goes on and on! They are growing closer to Him through circumstances in life, this is a blessing to me!
But tomorrow will come soon and I must get some rest to rise to meet another day having Him order my steps to a more effective day!!! Enjoy ..blessings one and all..xo

I find when I pray for help, everything gets done so much easier - I feel like I have wings - even doing the housework!

I think you've hit the nail on the head there. The best thing to do when we have challenges is to simply pray about it and give it to God. He always works it for good anyway.

Beautiful post...where do you find your beautiful pictures online? They are so nice and look like someplace I would love to be...My son lives in California. Wish I could find those plants too but I know I could never bring them back on an airplane.

Mindy...I so appreciate your honesty about feeling off balance at times. Sure helps to know someone else struggles that way.

Thanks SO much for sharing that, and this post is just what I needed to hear.

Love you!
