No Wordless Wednesday today. There’s too much to be said. My, what a week this has been. Like all things in life, it’s mixed with joy, sadness and the little things that happen betwixt and between.
The joy: Steve took off for the far off land of Florida to visit with his sister, Cindy Gaye, and her family. By all accounts he had a nice visit. He’s not quite returned yet but I’m sure he will have loads of photos from the visit. The other inmates are Amberlee (niece) who will be 18 (what happened?! lol) next year, Bobby (nephew) who is almost 30 and still living at home. Yeah, there’s a story there. He is a bit of a disappointment but it is what it is. We all have to chose our way through life. Guess he’s chosen his. Oh, and also her husband Don.
The sadness: God called a very dear soul Home on Saturday. Liam is the son of one of my best friends, Simply Linda and her husband. Such wonderful, kindly, Christian folks. Liam had a dodgy heart, and when the State of New York locked their home down with no medical treatments because of their demonic religion Covid, the stress took his life. I keep feeling a mixture of anger (at how it lead to this event), sadness (that he’s not here anymore) and joy (at his being with Jesus forever). I still keep bursting out in tears. It’ll pass. Probably sooner than it should but I will continue on and remember this dear boy always. It’s what God wants for us. We have work to do!
The between: Sunday, we exchanged gifts with one another and sang happy Christmas songs. The photo on the left is a gift from our Pastor’s wife, Jackie. She makes the loveliest things. Jackie is the one that has encouraged me to make those nice felt blankets for the dogs. 🐕 We are also doubly blessed to have Pastor Bob & Jackie as neighbors. Anyway, the gifts are quilted place mats. And the mugs are from them both. Starting Monday, while Steve was in Florida, I’ve stayed as busy as I could without reinjuring my neck and shoulder. I moved Longleaf Pine straw to another part of the yard for decoration. Then I cleaned the outhouse after all the summer use and tidied the house, did extra laundry, like what the dogs lay on and such. And so forth and so on. 😁
Guess I’d better hit “send” or I’ll never get this posted. 😉 Thank you for stopping by. I pray your day, and the rest of your week, are full of joy, happy moments and nothing but good news.
