All of you wonder about me but I don't have time to write to each so am writing blogs.

Today my friends came over to help unpack. Three days all together. I was so weary this morning I called to see if they could come next week. They were so busy they couldn't so came today. I'm glad they did. We did a lot of messy little things today and it is looking better.

We didn't finish all and there are some things I will have to arrange myself. They did say they will come next week and help me finish and vacumn the papers and stuff from the unpacking so my new carpet will look nice.

I am so proud I got rid of so much stuff. I don't miss it at all and am thrilled to see bare spaces. emoticon emoticon

Before they left we prayed as she has some physical needs as well as my knees. Actually I was so weary I could hardly walk but my knees haven't been hurting me.
God really moved as we prayed and the gentleman really cried. Then he prayed for me also. They said they were so glad they got to really know me although we had met before.

We took a nice lunch break and went to have lunch with my friends from church and they already knew each other. They said "Now we are going to pay for lunch" and insisted. It was a nice buffet for $6.95 with tea. Well, my friend from church picked up their tab and mine also so none of us paid. I pay for my friends sometimes also. We just help each other out.

Nothing has been heard from the car. It was to be ready the end of this week and I don't think they work Saturday. Maybe????? That means the insurance has to pay the rental car over the week end. Monday I will go in and see what is going on.

Saturday I get my hair done and get ready for Sunday and rest, emoticon all I want to.

God bless all and to all a good night.

    emoticon Irene - good job on getting rid of so much stuff that you apparently didn't need. It does feel good, doesn't it? I need to do a major purge myself someday soon!!
So glad you had help and people to be with who care for you. I think you go to a wonderful church, where people practice true fellowship.

Mostly, I see how God keeps on showing up to make sure you are cared for... He is always there, but Irene, you have eyes that see Him!
Thanks for being my Spark friend/angel.

    You always tell us that God will provide all our needs and he is certainly providing for you Irene. What a blessing all those friends helping and your knees feeling better. We gave away a lot of "stuff" when we re-did different rooms in our home and I loved it, actually having more room and haven't missed anything that we gave away. Have a great weekend. (((HUGS)))

    Irene - I'm so glad your friends in the area have been there for you.
I wish I was closer to jump in the car to help you.
How about groceries? do you need any? I'm off on Monday and so is Becky.
Please let me know if you need something - anything.....I can take a drive over.

Isn't it nice to get rid of things and to see that empty space??
Remember when I did that during the summer?

Hugs and prayers.....

    Life's challenges just keep coming don't they, Irene. You certainly have a huge project on your hands. I have been thinking that it is time to do some house-clearing - yes, clearing, not cleaning - and now I'm thinking it might be a good idea to do it BEFORE the water leak happens. Thank you for reminding me that the unplanned does happen.
Maybe dealing with the house, the AC, and the car have helped keep you too busy to worry about the surgery? I had a knee replacement nearly two years ago. It was a bit tough at first; I didn't like therapy but I did every single appointment they would let me have and my knee is so good now. No pain medication at all! I was supposed to have the second knee done but it was not so bad and since I've been feeling better exercise has helped the second knee. My doctor says that I may never need surgery on it. What a blessing that is.
Prayers while you are on your SparkBreak.

Keep shining!
