Many Thanks To You....


A heartfelt thank you for all the prayers for my husbands' recent problem with his back. Last week seemed like a blur to me...lack of sleep, doctors appointments etc... But I'm thrilled to say that he is doing better! The pain is subsiding...with the help of much prayer and physical therapy. I saw the grace of God thru this ordeal. Friends and family stood with us in prayer and for this I'm forever grateful!!!!

He is back at work with a light duty for another week and maybe longer if needed. During this time, I've reflected the need to yet again simplify my life...pare down....lighten the load. So this week I'm delving into the dreaded garage to throw out, go through, give away and organize. The message that the Lord put on my heart 5 years ago has once again comeback to me and that is: Stewardship. Being a good steward of what He has given us....time, energy, talents and treasures. We have had things sitting in the garage for so long...with great plans to so something with all the stuff....and even with those plans, nothing has happened. Time to release those things...let go and bless someone else who needs it. So I contemplating a yard sale...and then putting the resources I make into painting the master bedroom and possibly new linens, or just donate all of it and be done!!!! What are you thoughts on this...new ideas are also most welcomed!!

Tonight our eldest son has to work all night, so our daughter-in-law and grandson will be spending the night! What fun times we will all have!!!

I have also taken quite a lot of pictures of the home and garden. I have picked my first bouquet of roses from the yard. So coming this week will be some of these pictures of seasonal vignettes and pretties about the house.

But once again....thank you all so much for you love, support and many prayers at this time!! I thank God for each and every one of you! God's abundance blessings to you and yours.....

I'm so glad your husband is feeling better! Our garage desperately needs cleaned out and I'm facing the same decision as you....garage sale or just donate it!! Let us know what you decide!

Dear Mindy, I am glad to see this post that your husband is getting relief for his terrible back pain. I have been wondering what progress there was if any. Praise the LORD!!.. from whom all blessings flow!~~My husband would definitly go with the yard sale...and who can't use the extra money! I would tend to cart things away without the strangers stopping at the house...but then again, new linens are costly and that would be tempting. So there you have our opinions...each opposite yet me bending in his direction if he did all the dealing with the public...I could handle the set-up, clean up, and spending the profits....grin. Love in Jesus, Maggie
