FOR YOUR INFORMATION

Wednesday, January 30, 2013

I know you wonder where I went. emoticon
I put on my status some of it.

Monday they hauled my stuff to storage. They packed everything but the furniture.

Day two the carpet layers came and moved the furniture laid the carpet and put the furniture back.

Day three they brought the stuff back from storage. Wow box upon box. I had loads of books.


I had some people come over to help me and told them I wanted to go through the books first. The church they attend wants to start a library and I sure sent a whole library to them. I still have a few more books and all my other stuff to go through.

My friend who is an interior decorator got a good price for me on the carpet. She said if you want to get rid of book cases I need one as I have all the stuff in my office on the floor. Well I gave her two book cases and one was huge so I would have to get rid of the books. When I saw how the print shrunk over the years it wasn't difficult to give most of them away. This lady and her family are my family who watches out for me along with others who help one way or the other. Thanks to all of you.

He came over tonight and got my computer set up. I have a lot of angels who help me and I so appreciate them.

I was without a TV, a computer and the battery to my Kindle run down so I lived a simple life for a bit. The movers put the TV back the way it should be so it is working and I have my Kindle charging.

There is a lot more work to be done so please don't think I ignore you. I also need to do my income tax. May put off my surgery for a bit and get all this stuff done because after surgery I plan to work on getting well enough to have my other knee done.

Tomorrow the pastor of the church is coming over in his pick up to get the books. I am so glad as they are in boxes and I have to be careful I don't fall over them.

I believe I told you I went to the bridge to meet with the pastor's son and do missionary business.

I have not missed a Sunday at church or failed to be there for my Sunday School class.
God is good and is worthy of all praise.

Irene

    Wow Irene - you've been a busy little bee!! Downsizing (or just moving, even) is a great way to "purge" and it feels so good to lighten up on all those possessions, doesn't it?
    emoticon
    I am so proud of you that through it all you have not missed a Sunday at church or Sunday School!! that is emoticon
    I am so glad you have many who love and help you!! God is good, and worthy of praise. YES! Amen to that. I was thinking today how grateful I am for the undeserved grace that He offers me each day, and the blessings of safety and provision he showers upon my family. emoticon
    Take care, dear Spark Friend!
