That's why I let this wisdom tooth go for so long.
Cause I could *take it*.
But even I have a point where I can't take it anymore.
John 16:33 (KJV)These things I have spoken unto you, that in me ye might have peace. In the world ye shall have tribulation: but be of good cheer; I have overcome the world. Sooooo, guess what? We will live with some kind of pain as long as we are on this earth. And pain will come from every direction. Whether it be a tooth, a relationship, a money problem, or just a good old fashion heart-ache..... Let the Lord be your strength. Nahum 1:7King (KJV) The Lord is good, a strong hold in the day of trouble; and he knoweth them that trust in him.
I pulled weeds and carted them to the sidewalk pile.
I put rabbits in better places.
And, I pinched my finger between
two of these scalloped bricks....
that it bled.
My finger literally popped on the end.
I took a break then, too.
I've been flower gardening and doing yard
stuff since we moved here over 24 years ago.
I have NEVER hurt myself as bad as I
I've been bitten by mosquitos and red ants
and have gotten poked by rose bushes.....
but today was the worst.
I cleaned this corner.
Now, it looks like you can sit in this chair,
and drink something cold.
The chair is almost rusted to the ground.
It's now yard art.
I was in Kansas in August.....and my sister gave me these rocks.
They were from my Granma's garden in Kansas.
Everything my Granma did was very neat and tidy.
Even her rocks were nice.
I'm glad I've got some of them.
I'm glad I finally took them out of the bag they've been in
"God doesn't JUST hear us when we pray." JCM August 2014
God hears our prayers, and everything else. Do you think God just hears your cries for help but not your complaints? Do you think God hears your words in time of need, but not your whining? Do you think God just hears you when your soul is vexed.....but not when you're taking His name in vain?
“It was the best of times, it was the worst of times.”
“A multitude of people and yet solitude.”
from the book
*A Tale Of Two Cities*
When we first moved in to this house over 20 years ago, the boys got the smaller room, the girls got the larger one. At that time, we only had two girls and two boys. How did we know that we would end up having more girls than boys? And that they would need the bigger room.
The two rooms have been through big changes, but none as big as the ones lately.
The *girl* room is now the Sleeping Room. The guest room. The room is ready, which means nothing will have to be DONE to get it ready when somebunny comes to see us.
I called it the Sleeping Room, because I am ONLY going to put sleeping type things in there. I know me.....and it would be easy to just put other things in there that don't pertain to sleeping.
Klarisa shopped around the house and found this book, decoratively put it on the suitcase pile and said: "Nothing says sleep like flowers on a book!"
The boy room is now the sewing room. Daniel painted it the color of the inside of a submarine. Kimberly painted it the color of a neon rainbow. I guess I'll keep it that color. Nothing says SEW like lime green......
I still have some work to do in this room. Gotta fill up some empty spaces. Flat surfaces should not be empty.
My sewing machine, waiting to make an apron.
I have lots of random things that help me sew. Little baskets made out of sticks. Old baby bath-tubs.
I, in jest, many times have said, "I wish somebody would back a truck up to the house and give me lots of fabric." Well, it happened. A friend gave me 7 large keepers, filled to the top, with fabric. This is just a small part of what I have. As soon as I get over this summer cold, and nagging wisdom tooth issue, I plan to sew and sew and sew.
The bedrooms used to hold kids and their things. Can't go back. The rooms now hold my things. Daniel once said that this house screamed of six kids. Now, it's kind of just an echo. People go. Rooms stay. I keep the doors opened on both of them, so I will be sure to be connected to reality.
