It’s Sunday School and Church day. ❤ I hope everyone has a place to call their spiritual Home too. It’s wonderful to join with others in praise of our loving God and Father through His Son Jesus Christ our LORD. Amen.
Y’all have a blessed day!

The new entertainment center turned out just as nice as I’d hoped. It’s so much smaller than the monstrosity that was hogging the whole wall. When disassembling the old one yesterday, we had to call for backup from a very good, reliable friend. What a brouhaha that was getting that monster cabinet apart and in the motorcycle trailer. It’s For Sale at Marketplace on FaceBook but if it doesn’t sell, it goes to the local auction Tuesday and then it’s his headache. Thank you LORD for this blessing.
I’m still decorating. I’m thinking it would be nice to display a long sign with Holy Scripture written on it. One of those Farm House looking decorations. I think I’ll have to make my own. All the signs I’ve seen are for a small area. I want mine to go all the way across the wall over the TV and DVD storage. The letters don’t have to be big, only the sign. That’s the plan as of now, anyway. 😉 That’s subject to change without notice. lol
Today’s Word Of The Day is: Syzygy. That’s gonna be a toughy to incorporate into a sentence. Oh, I know, today we’re lunching with Steve’s Mom and his married niece Deborah and her offspring. They’re traveling up from Jax ‘to see Grandma’. The niece and her household are regrettably Demoncrats 😦 (or, as I call them, Useful Idiots), so, I guess we’ll be lucky to experience any syzygy in our conversation today. Yeah, ok, I’ll be good. 🙂 Scouts Honor. If she starts singing the praises of Ovomit I promise not to gag (too loudly).
And, on that happy note, I pray y’all have a peaceful, joyful, relaxing day. Wish we could ride to lunch but the road is sooooo super sandy. I won’t risk it. May the LORD bless and keep you.
Romans 15:13 NIV

Since it’s Thursday, we’re entertaining Steve’s Mom again. After a lot of trial and error, we’ve learned it’s more convenient for us to pick her up at the nursing home, then bring her here or go out to eat, on Thursday’s. I’m thankful that his Mom has transitioned into a more caring human being now. [Just keeping it real, as my good friend Linda would say.] 🙂 I’m pretty sure it was the ‘drink’ that was making her obnoxious, selfish and uncaring all these years because basically, she is a good person. Now that’s she’s in the home, I’ve weaned her off the stuff without her even knowing it. Now she’s a water or Coke drinker, and that makes for more pleasant conversations.
The Word For The Day is: Gregarious. And that’s what Steve’s Mom has become since she’s off the sauce and living at the nursing home. She’s no longer morose or weird. She’s become the Social Butterfly of Floor 6. I’m so happy for her!
I’m thankful that one day it will rain again. It is so dry here. Right now the drought, the heat and the lovebugs have made going outside a misery. Everyone’s vehicles are plastered with those nasty smelling fleshy things. When the LORD was creating the earth, I wish he’s left them off the list. Lovebugs are like Demoncrats: they have no purpose other than to annoy, they smell bad, they lead one into immoral thoughts and all you want to do is eliminate them from your presence. 😉 But, He always knows best. I’m sure there’s a reason even for things that are pure petulance.
So, with that said, hope y’all have a wonderful day!

As one who has actually had a house build, I know the above Scripture to be especially true. All through out, and before, the build, I and my husband prayed over and about the house that would someday call home. God has honored our prayers with joy, safety, peace and well being, even through the storms of life. He always answers prayer.
Today will be busy: paying bills, post office run, groceries and lunch with a new friend who has become very dear to us. Steve has kind of adopted this gentleman like the son we never had. This guy is a brother in Christ and a fellow brother at FAITH Riders. It’s an ancient sad story, played out thousands of times around the world: his wife of 25 years had up and walked out on him and left him practically destitute (he is disabled). Steve has been his phone support. We’ve taken him a few groceries, prayed/with for him and so forth. Thankfully, there’s no alcohol or drug abuse involved on either side but the she side does have a new squeeze (before the split up), so, I tend to think that’s the basis of all their woes. Irregardless, we love him and her both and pray for their welfare. I pray also for us that there will be no taking sides in the arguments. I’ve learned that when outsiders take sides in any problem all that does is muddy the waters and cause more hard feelings. Chaos is not from Jesus. We are all praying that God will heal their marriage. For me and the Hubby, our only job is to love them both and try to be there emotionally when needed. This is a real learning curve for me. The way I was raised was don’t get involved and don’t help people because ‘they deserve it’ (my father’s words). But believing in Jesus has given me a new heart. I try to be more kindly to those who are going through troubles, whether I think they’ve created those troubles or not. That’s none of my business. I’m a sinner too. I make my own problems and pray for His mercy too. Thank you LORD Jesus for teaching me to love ❤ like You do.
The wound in my arm is finally healing. The Dermatologist yesterday looked favorably on the area. I made sure to tell her I’m certain this was all my fault. I took the bandages off way too quickly and then showered. A BIG no no! The water had seeped into the wound and the infection started. See, I can make my own problems too. lol We all need mercy and forgiveness.
Have a happy day folks!
