My friend came over today and she called the carpet people she uses as she is an interior decorator. She is ordering the carpet for me and I will repay her. They came out and measured today and said they would move the furniture but not the books and trinkets I have around.

So....... I called a moving company. They are supposed to come Monday and put those in storage. It is supposed to take one day to lay the carpet, then they will bring my stuff back and I plan to pay a couple who used to work for a friend who moved away and need the money to put the stuff back. I hope to downsize some and when I get back from surgery and feel well enough I plan to have them come again and work on the cabinets.

I talked to my former beauty operator today and realized I don't have a problem at all. She is in her early 50's and had a mini stroke and she couldn't talk just right. Her husband had lost his job and she was working to make ends meet even though she didn't feel like it before the stroke. I called her today. She said she never answers the phone unless her husband isn't there but when she saw it was me she answered. She was so desperate. I asked her if she wanted me to pray for her and she said I want you to. Please pray for NELI and GEORGE.

I was in a restaurant the other day and saw this beautiful relatively your woman who had a cane, twisted hands, etc. I went up to her and found out she had had a stroke. She was a slender lady also. She couldn't talk but I told her God loved her and she was very pretty. I think I made her day.

So there is always someone in worse shape than you.

I just found out the movers are charging $50.00 an hour for two people and $95.00 for storage. More than I expected but God is supplying. I know He will supply all of my needs according to His riches in Glory by Christ Jesus. He always has and He told me He always would.

I am way behind on posts but I know you understand. No one has told me yet how do I put "ON SPARK LEAVE" on my page.

Saturday I am going to the border as God has blessed my pastors in Reynosa with a special offering. In the afternoon I plan to get my hair done and Sunday plan to go to church.

May the Lord bless each of you.

    Yes, I will (and just did!) pray for Neli and George - and of course you, dear Irene! One of the things you always remind me is that keeping things in perspective is true wisdom. From your years and years of choosing to be surrounded by God's Word, you have become wise in Him and now you bless all of us! So I praise God for you today, and ask Him to continue to hold you in the palm of His hand as you walk through these next few weeks and your recovery, etc.
Today, I will look extra carefully to see someone I can encourage. I love doing that anyway, but I feel like God is telling me to follow your example - He will be putting someone in my path that needs my hands and heart to show them the Lord's love.

    Irene - we are truly blessed, but sometimes we have to see the pain of others to realize it! Sound like you've got everything in order before your surgery. Know that we will keep you in our prayers, as well as your friends!

    Irene, I wasn't worried . . . I knew things were going to fall in place for you. It's called Faith!

I don't know how to put that on your page but you could just put "on a spark break" on your status just before you go in for surgery and it would stay on for a week. By then, everyone will know you're on a break. That's about all I can think of, maybe spark coaches can help you. You'd need to go to the message boards and look up the thread 'tech help/questions'.

Relax now Irene, you know things are getting done. Are you still going to postpone your surgery?? Blogs are great, you are updating us all this way.
Thank you dear friend!

    It's nice you have someone to help you put stuff away while the carpet is layed. Good to have a chance to downsize too. I'm doing that too. Need to get rid of EVERYTHING I have over here in Africa during these next two years.

    Sounds like the Lord is "allowing everything to fall into place". I stopped when reading the blog and prayed for Neli and George.

I will be out of town for a week (leaving Sunday). I will stop by when I get back to see how you are doing.

Love in Christ Jesus!

    Thanks for the update. I don't know how to do what you want to do about Spark Leave. I am sure that someone will though. Take it easy, and please take care of you. Hugs and prayers will continue.
