Not sure if I told anyone I got stung by a bee. I know I had posted it on FB. Anyhow I felt this thunk on my head and thought it was a leave or something so I brushed my fingers through my hair and unfortunately it was a yellow jacket -

I did not have my Epi-Pen kit and I was on my way to a local restaurant to drop off some goodies for the staff so went the two blocks and got ice to put on the sting. I texted Colie who was not home at the time but as I was walking back from the restaurant he was coming up the street with Ross - Christina had my Epi-Pen kit waiting when I got home and I said IF YOU SHOOT ME WITH THAT - YOU HAVE TO CALL 911 NEXT!! I am a little shaky BUT my breathing is fine let's get these fingers on ice. I immediately took a large dose of benadryl and tried to quiet myself down. It worked. My finger got stung about 3/4 times and it has been painful but I am icing it, using meat tenderizer to draw the venom out and obviously still taking Benadryl. That happened on Friday night Finger is swollen and itchy - a moderate reaction to the stings so I am coping with it.

Got a Christian Ed board meeting tonight and this past Sunday Colie and I gutted out (mostly me) and reorganized my shelving units and cabinets for the Children's Ministry NOW I can move stuff from my house to my closets at church.

We meet with the developer tomorrow night and give him our counter offer. Would appreciate prayers and good thoughts - not sure what is next if we do not get our asking price. Especially since I now know about $100K goes in Capital gains taxes both Feds and State - Can you imagine you end up paying about 28% in taxes!

Enjoy your day all

Good morning all. Getting ready to go to work. I got a good nights sleep for a change. It is starting to cool down at night, and that helps a lot. I cannot sleep in a hot, stuffy room.

I just want to thank all of you for the goodies and birthday wishes that you sent to me. Thanks for being such wonderful, caring friends. We got through mother in law's burial, but my brother in law is now back in the VA in Wisconsin, and it does not look like he is going to make it this time. Please keep Craig in your prayers.

Welcome to the group ANNIEMARY5K.

Just wanted to give you all an update. Loving my new job working as a RN at an area hospital, okay it is a month old now.

Kinda cloudy here in the Nashville, TN area also. I think it is supposed to be like that all weekend. I hope that midweek the sun shines, but isn't too hot as I have go to mow the lawn. Tonight I think I will work on washing dishes so that I have clean tupperware to put some meals in and freeze for work.

I hope everything is going well for everyone.

Blessings,

Good Morning,

I am back at Mae's until Tuesday morning so will have more internet access.

Cloudy and cool here this morning with scattered misty rain which isn't good for Mae's granddaughter's outdoor wedding this evening. They are outside setting up tents/canopies now along with chairs.

I am down 1.4 pounds from when I left home on August 10.

prayers to all.......Elsie

Morning all

Life always seems busy! Went to the lawyer and NOW I totally got it with the Capital gains tax , gift tax and so on and so forth. Lawyer drew up durable power of attorney which I did not have for my Dad so that is a RELIEF - he was awesome. Gave us areas of Quincy where we should look for a house and where not to look - one of the houses we really liked was in the section of NO you don't want to live there so that was good to hear. His daughter is a real estate broker and we will work with her to BUY our house - as for selling the lawyer gave us more fabulous tips in working with the developers. He actually said the developer could take our new houses and leave them standing, gut them out and redo for about $100K or less and landscape the yards as well the sell them for a mil each! We hadn't thought of that - he also told us what our LOW # for an offer should be and what he felt was a fair price for the houses. It was a very good meeting ALL AROUND - NOW I am waiting for his bill!! Have not a clue but I can move what little I have in the savings around because for the 90 minutes or so we were there we got so many questions answered!! We meet with the developer on Wednesday night - SAY A PRAYER ALL!!!

Still hard to think about selling and moving - it is difficult to leave what you grew up in but our neighbor is NOT the same and we are having problems with the young college students who park next to our cars in the garage - I actually took a photo of how they park and sent it to the woman I rent from and she said I will fix it. They park over the line and we cannot get our cars in - Christina can get hers in more than I can. For me not at all - good thing for the most part I have been on the street but that is about to change

Heading out to see the Constitution turnaround and a quiet day.

Have a great weekend all

Laura

So hey, I'm relatively new here & trying to be more active on this team. Happy Friday! What does everyone have planned for this weekend? I'll probably be taking it easy since I had a small procedure done on the back of my scalp yesterday & now I'm suffering through work.

I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me. Philippians 4:13

Morning Friends,

Long time, I know. How is everyone? We have started back to school and are off to a good start. My ds is doing O.K. considering the Rocky Mountain Spotted Fever. The dr. is now checking him for lymes. My dd has been getting better since her issues this summer. We are still seeing dr. I am just happy we homeschool.

I just do not understand why both my children are so sick. Praying for complete healing for both. I am open to any suggestions.

Enough about that. I skimmed the recent post to try to catch up. Did everyone have a good summer. I know I have been MIA a lot. Did anyone do anything special?

Have a great day!

Blessings,
Ali emoticon emoticon

Last week I decided I had enough! Enough of feeling sluggish and tired. I had gained weight up to 148.1! I have a FITBIT scale that syncs to everything else including Spark. So, lately, my weight has been going up and down. It will show two pounds lost here and there. So, it looks like I am really losing weight when in reality I am not - until now! Beginning today I plan on weighing myself every Monday morning. Last week - I believe it was Friday - I took a picture of myself - mainly my face - then I saved it with the date and weight. I decided to begin drinking my water like I should be doing and then some. I have drunk 75 ounces a day. This morning I weighed and was down to 142 something. Whoohoo! I am determined to lose the weight I need to lose once and for all! I am tired of feeling blah! With having a six year old and turning 48 soon I have got to take better care of myself! I can do it and I will do it! Here is to healthier living.
Blessings,
Julie

P.S. I will eat better, exercise (which I have been doing) and drink my water - no diet, no drinks, no nothing else. I will just do what I can do naturally!

P.S.S. - With my knee drama last year, I lost 20 pounds just by watching what I ate - no exercise - nothing. So, surely, I can take it off again!


Be joyful always; pray continually; give thanks in all circumstances, for this is God's will for you in Christ Jesus. 1 Thessalonians 5:16-18

I can do all things through Jesus Christ who gives me strength! Philippians 4:13

Thanks you Julie for posting our prayer requests and thank you everyone for praying!!

The baby shower was wonderful! Lots of fun and fellowship and sweet gifts for our baby. One of the ladies at the shower has been a friend of mine since I first married and moved here. She came to the showers of each of my children and now to the shower of the first grandchild!! That is something not even my Sister or Mother was able to do!!

Hugs and blessings to you all!

1) Pray for hubby’s health – all areas of it. Pray that he has a desire to take better care of himself!
2) Pray for all that is going on in the world. Pray for Christians all over who are being persecuted. Pray for Israel.
3) Pray for my church as we transition from one pastor to the next.

Laura (His Own)
1) Praise that we are connecting with a Christian lawyer and tax attorney - this will help us with all that is going on with the decision to sell the houses - also is making us revisit our own will and plans as well
2) Pray that God gives us clear direction on what we should do with the houses - PRAISE HIM for finding us off street parking on our street - THAT TRULY WAS HIS HAND AT WORK!! We may pay but it is from HIM we got it
3) For our new youth leader - He has worked with our group as a volunteer but now he is marking the transition to leader
4) For my DH company's decision to move that is will be within a good commute - they are looking to have a warehouse locally and that would be AWESOME
5) For our country, for our leaders, for the leaders of the free world and for those oppressed by the evil in this world
6) Pray for the many unspoken requests that God knows that are on our hearts and minds.
GOD BLESS ALL OF YOU


Be joyful always; pray continually; give thanks in all circumstances, for this is God's will for you in Christ Jesus. 1 Thessalonians 5:16-18

I can do all things through Jesus Christ who gives me strength! Philippians 4:13

Had my teeth cleaned last night - that is SUCH an ordeal for my jaw since my jaw and neck muscles do not work properly because of the radiation - ended up taking a muscle relaxer and a pain killer for it last night - kept a heat pack on the jaw muscles last night - it will take a few days for the jaw to go back into alignment

Praying for our country and for the world - the news definitely has us praying extra hard

God Bless you all

Hello Friends,
Laura glad you could take a step back and slow down a bit.

Anjay so glad you are feeling better. Praying it stays that way!

Joanne the exercise has been non existent this week but not giving up. After the baby shower things should move along better again. The quilt is done and I need to get pics posted of it on my page so you all can see it. I need to get it laundered and sent off to the little one. Am starting the one for my Grandbaby and it will be simpler, which is the parents' choice!

Hugs to All!

Good Wednesday afternoon everyone. Have a little more time today so can read the posts and respond. Did get to the gym this morning and walked on the treadmill for 45 minutes followed by light weights for 15 minutes. Still plugging away and hoping that next week will show a loss.

Anjay sorry you have been in such pain. I can only imagine what it is like. I have a little arthritis of the spine (neck area) and feel it at times, so what you have been diagnosed with sounds so much more painful. I am a little unclear, on the muscle imbalance. Are they telling you that the spine issue is what causes your muscle imbalance? Praying for you at this time.

Laura, it sure sounds like you have been a very busy lady. I am glad that you have found a good Tax Attorney as the legal ramifications sound very confusing. Praying that all goes well with your appointment and that you will be able to work your real estate agent or find one that is more in tune with your needs. Enjoy your time away with Colie, you have more than deserved it.

Daddy's girl, no I am not giving up however, it is discouraging and frustrating. Have fun at the baby shower. Let us know how did it goes. Keep us posted on how the quilt is coming along. How is your exercise routine coming?

Ckay enjoy the bible study. I enjoy doing Beth Moore studies as she is so down to earth. I have had the pleasure of hearing her in person, it is so encouraging.

Elsie sorry the flea market didn't turn out to be as much fun as you thought it would be. How is the sale of the 5th wheeler going? Any offers yet?

Dorothy sorry to hear of your fever at night. That is no fun as if you are like me, it disrupts your sleep. Which I can only imagine is not good for lupus either. It has warmed up a little here so that is okay. I actually enjoy the temperatures we have been getting as it is great for sleeping.

Amanda glad that you are enjoying your job. How is your meal prep coming along? That is a great part of the journey, learning to plan ahead rather than just grab and go. Yes the devil is VERY sneaky he knows exactly where to attack us and when to do so. I have found that when I ask God, in my morning prayers, to give me the strength to stick to my healthier lifestyle it is much easier to do.

Ali, Julie, Born, hope you are all well. Praying for you all.

Time to go, so take care ladies and have a blessed evening,
emoticon Joanne

Hi everyone sorry I have missed a few days I had the muscle imbalance clinic on Monday. I did get answers but not good ones, I also had to endure excruciating pain.. Seemling the ligaments at my neck are not strong enough to support the spine, hence the top of my spine twisted, which in turned trapped a nerve. They had to freeze my neck and shoulder after 4 injections the doctor decided I could not take anymore, I am not a crier but these injections, it was like battery acid running through the needle it was awful. Then the physiotherapist had to manipulate the spine back in place untrapping the nerve. At the moment I have tape holding my spine in place and a bilateral brace. Both are uncomfortable, I go back in 3 weeks to see how things are progressing. I will wear the brace through the day and the tape at night, we are not sure if this is going to have to be permanent time will tell. As for my wrist she did not even look at it, and said they will at a later date. But today the neck pain is minimum, I can turn my head with little pain and my leg worked fine today, this is the best day I have had painwise since early May.

Updates:

OK - let's start with the MOST stressing and that is the housing issue

Have the name of a wonderful Tax attorney and most reputable and a Christian! - his nephew is also a youth director at a church we work with so that will even make this easier

Meet with him next week - Colie and I are also going to change our wills and do a revocable trust as well - we have been talking about it SO NOW is the time while we are meeting with him. We can make the sale of the two houses stagger as in we get almost 1.2 million and Dad gets the rest which would help with the Capital gains tax BUT that is why we are meeting with him I am really good with $ and numbers BUT I want a PRO to guide me PLUS better news is HE will be our lawyer when we sell these

NIGHTMARE TIME on the house tours - so I email the RedFin rep and say are we still on for the showing on Monday night and I got a reply well I tried to call you yesterday to let you know there might be an offer on the house and since YOU are using your two houses to BUY this one and they are not listed you will have MORE difficulty in getting anyone to accept your offer - NEEDLESS to say I whipped up a SCATHING email back - saying YOUR job is to show us houses when we ask and NOT question what we are using for $$ - yes I said we would like to use these houses for payment BUT you do not know my financial situation plus pardon the pun in the last 3 weeks THINGS have developed quickly with news we might sell and I have offers I have not even solicited and then I said I was rather disappointed in how the tours last Thursday all got canceled and one was STILL on their page listed as active

She replied and said NO pressure to get you to listed but offered us another agent to work with us if we could not work with her - SO that is ALL UP in the AIR

WHAT we have decided to do is TAKE A STEP back - see the lawyer get things settled there

Next see where Colie's work might end up because as is if we move to Quincy it is a hike on the red line BUT just one train at the moment to work

Deal on the table with developer is THERE and not going anywhere as he said so we have TIME

With that off my plate I can relax a bit

My elderly client who has had issues called me 4 times today and I went over GOOD FOR ME ONE HOUR ONLY and no charge and got her computer straightened out not sure what is going on between her and hubbie BUT he certainly keeps changing the start up screen so she cannot find anything - OH and GET THIS she wanted to take me house hunting in her neighborhood so we could be close - THAT AINT HAPPENING

Taking my Dad to my Mom's grave tomorrow - Dental cleanings tomorrow night - OH JOY not!

Friday we head to away by ourselves for the weekend! It will be great to get away from it all

Needless to say I am beyond in agony with my jaw and neck muscles and the cleaning AINT gonna help OH WELL

Sending much love and hugs

Joanne glad t see you dropping by! Sorry no weight loss. It is frustrating! But don't give up!! It took time to gain and it takes time to lose!

CKay hope you enjoy the Bible Study!

Grocery shopping is done for another week. We are having company once and maybe twice this week! DS and Ddil will be able to keep coming over each week. They thought the childbirth classes would be on the day they normally come here. ;-) This weekend is the baby shower and life is busy! ;-)

Hugs to all!

Just dropping in for a quick "Hi" to all of you. It has been rather quiet the past few days. Hope everyone is doing well. Yesterday's weigh in was rather disappointing, after working so hard all week, exercising six out of seven days, I stayed the same. I know it is better than a gain however, I truly believed (since the gym scales said I was down from last week) that I would at the very least lose a quarter of a pound. However, this is a new week and hopefully the scales will finally move down next week.

Gotta run, take care everyone and have a great afternoon,
emoticon Joanne

It's a beautiful day here in Michigan but rain is expected tomorrow.

I boxed up more stuff in the 5th wheel this morning. It has been moved out by the road so hopefully it will sell.

Joanne I am doing ok. Wish that I could send you some of this hot weather but at least we are getting rain in the afternoon or late at night so I don't have to worry too much about the grass drying out. Have been taking it easy because of the fever that I run at night and I think that is my lupus is flaring up because I don't have it during the day and that is one of the lupus symptoms.

Dorothy

If you tell God no because He won't explain the reason He wants you to do something, you are actually hindering His blessing. But when you say yes to Him, all of heaven opens to pour out His goodness and reward your obedience. What matters more than material blessings are the things He is teaching us in our spirit.

Glad things seem to be going well for most. I am doing okay. I have one more week on day shift before I go back to being a night shift nurse.

I am needing to be more motivated tomorrow than I was today. I have some meal prep to do for my lunches. I also need to work on staying away from the grocery store to do it, so I don't grab a bag of potato chips that I am so craving. (The Devil gets sneaky at times, okay, always.) Today just kind of laid around. Need to also get a few bills paid now that my paycheck has hit the bank.

Wishing all a great week.

Well, I finally got warm about 2 this afternoon.....lol

I was a nice sunny day today and I did get out some. I got a for sale sign for the 5th wheel. I am hoping it sell quickly so I don't have to haul it back to Missouri.


Tomorrow I am going to church with my sister then we are going to a mega mall/flea market sale.

Take care...........Elsie

Hello Joanne and All,
My hand is all well again. No pain and no swelling. It is very evident where I was stung. Strange how that took so long to show up. ;-) Today I finished my great nieces baby quilt. I am glad I am getting it to her before her first birthday and before it will be cold enough that she will want to snuggle with it.;-)
Yes, the Lord gives and takes away for His purposes and in His wisdom! I am so thankful for each of you!
I don't know how long it has been since I joined this team. Maybe 5 yrs too. I didn't realize that it has been 5 yrs since I lost both my Dad and Mom. Wow!! I am not sure if I was a member on SP then or not. I think not but maybe some of you will remember?!!
Oh don't worry about saying crochet instead of quilt. Although I am going to have to go back and see what you are referencing!! Obviously you didn't offend me! ;-) LOL, I see now! The quilt was finished today!! I will send it out this coming week. I hope to start on my Grandchild's tonight. ;-) But then I did say some of this already. ;-)
Yes I imagine we will be quite busy! You are right, they do not want to know the baby's gender!
The shower is next week but the planning is going well, Family members are making/decorating onsies and they will be hung on a clothesline around the room! Several have been purchased too. It will look cute with all the verses and colors!
I didn't exercise today but for now and glad to have 5 days out of 6 to exercise. Sunday is my day of rest. ;-)
Hope Everyone has a wonderful Lord's Day!!

It's a wet and rainy Saturday here in Stouffville so no going out for a walk. However, I am pleased to say that I have made it out to the gym every day this week except Monday which is my day of rest. I don't know how this will translate on the scale on Monday but at least I am active and getting back into the routine of moving/exercise.

Daddy's girl, I hear you about the "old timers". I often wonder what has happened to some of them. However, as we often say at church "God puts people in our lives for a reason as well as for a season." I look back at time though and can't believe that it has been five years already, yet it seems like just yesterday when I joined this team. WOW is all I can say. I am sorry I did say crochet when I meant quilt. You sure will be busy with that little one when he/she gets here. I take it from your comment that they don't care to find out if it is a boy or a girl. The surprise is nice and as long as he/she is healthy that is the important thing. How did the shower go? Sorry to hear you got stung, how is your hand doing? It sounds as if you and I are at the same point in our healthier life journey. I have exercised 6 out of 7days this week.

Hi Rugered, hope you had a good week. Glad you are part of this team. Have a great weekend you also. Congrats on your one pound loss. You go girl!

Linnie sorry about your loss although I did not post until now your family has been in my prayers. Have you managed to get some rest throughout all of this?

Elsie glad you arrived safely at your sister's home. Hopefully you will be able to sell the 5th wheeler soon. You are right about the gain, it is so difficult to stick to a program when we are travelling or visiting. As Hazel one of our members would say "Tomorrow is another day". Sorry you are cold, I don't know what 69F is in Celsius (our temperature) but it is cold and rainy and dreary here today.

Dorothy how are you doing? Can you send us some heat also please? I dislike the cold and the rain.

Laura, I also love reading everyone's posts. It feels like a family (a cyber one but a family still the same). It's nice that your parking issues have been resolved (although I may have already mentioned that). Glad your car is doing well. It is good to have a mechanic you trust. I have finally found one (a young Christian lady who is a qualified mechanic and has her own shop). Did you get the comparative market analyses done? If so I hope they were positive. How is Linus' sty? Will they lance it or just let it heal on its own? I am glad that you have such good helpers for the Children's Ministry. I am sure it is a big help to you.

Anjay glad you managed to go for another kayak ride but sorry to hear it was not the smoothest entry into the harbour. Sorry that you have been having a strange summer. I will keep you in my prayers and remember we are here for you. Where does Lamia live? That is such a different name.

Amanda glad you are enjoying your work. You are right about being grateful for gainful and rewarding work. Glad you are eating better and being more active. That sure helps in creating a healthier lifestyle.

Jenora how did your week go? Yes it is not easy letting go, praying that God will give you the strength to let go and let God. I know I still struggle with this on many occasions.

Julie thanks once again for the prayer list. How are you doing?

Ckay glad you had a wonderful day on Sunday. Walking with someone else makes it so much more enjoyable.

Well ladies it is time for me to get going and get dinner ready.

Take care everyone, have a great Saturday evening and a wonderfully blessed Sunday.

Elsie I wish that I could give you some of this heat that we have and take some of that cold that you have but not God and He is the only one that can do that.

Dorothy

If you tell God no because He won't explain the reason He wants you to do something, you are actually hindering His blessing. But when you say yes to Him, all of heaven opens to pour out His goodness and reward your obedience. What matters more than material blessings are the things He is teaching us in our spirit.

Elsie so sorry you have been cold while in MI. Sorry for your lb gain but you are right, while traveling that isn't bad. DD and I have been exercising this week and have managed to exercise all 5 days this week. Takes planning for sure. Now to start eating right again too. It all takes effort to get the ball rolling again. ;-) (I am preaching to myself! lol )

Rugered hope you have a good weekend too! DD and I are having dinner with friends tonight and that is always a good way to start a weekend!

Hugs to ALL!!!

It's Wednesday evening and I haven't yet posted this week. This will be a short one as I dropped into my place for a few minutes. Will have more time tomorrow to catch up with everyone's news. For the next two weeks, I am housesitting for my sister and bil as they are on holidays with the kids. Unfortunately, I do not have access to a computer as they are in the midst of renovations and the computers are disassembled and in storage until the renos are finished. Must run as I still have few errands to do tonight.

Take care everyone and have a blessed evening,

Hello Friends,
It has been an odd day here. It started out well. Felt good and rested and got the mower started and was off to mow the yard. As I went out the gate, I noticed some vines on the fence so decided to pull them down while I was there. I bug or bee or something bit or stung my hand. I pulled my hand back and saw the critter for such a second and as I pulled my hand back the critter fell or flew away. I treated my hand but it still stung like fire. It got better during the day but feels like the bone is bruised now. Thankfully there is no major swelling or discoloring. Hope it is better tomorrow. I did get the yard mowed! ;-)
Have gotten exercise 2 days out of 2 this week!! Got a streak going! LOL

Elsie so glad you have arrived safely!! ;-) Have a wonderful time! Hope you can sell the 5th wheel quickly! Hope you are enjoying the cooler weather!!

Anjay that sounds very scary to me! Glad you could sit still like DH wanted you to do. So thankful you arrived back safely! Sorry you have had a hard summer! We are here for you friend if there is anything we can do to help!!

Rugered hope you had a great day too!

Good Night All!!

Sunday was another day on the ocean well only an hour this time, we went out of a harbour not far from us, we paddled to a point and a little island then back to harbour, hubby had a hard time getting back into harbour as it had a strong undercurrent, so a bit scary at times, as the kyak dipped and rolled side to side with the waves, but I listened to Wayne, and just sat still, an soon we were in the harbour, but we will remember that is not an easy harbour to come back into.
Now today I am trying to get back on track but not doing so well, I have had a strange summer, Wayne has noticed I have not quite been myself
Well have a great day everyone.

1) Aunt Izzy is feeling much better and is feeling the baby move!! Health for both of them and a good delivery.
2) Thankful for a replacement computer since the lightening strike at our house.
3) Safety for DS Fireman as he is in training this next 6 mths.
4) Thankful for so many wonderful answers to prayers!! God is so good and faithful!

Dorothy (DJ4HEALTH)
1) Please pray for my brothers and sisters and their families to come to Christ and also my parents. On my husband's side the rest of his brothers and sisters and their families to come to Christ too.

Elsie (Saint Bernard6)
1) Valerie.....still has some health issues and may be facing more surgery.
2) Vicky's (granddaughter) job will be successful for her
3) great granddaughter, Kira, that her eczema will get healed-----she is 3 years old and has to deal with the severe itching this disease causes.
4) An unspoken big family issue....that it will turn out good.

Joanne (SUNSHINE1954)
1) Prayers of thanksgiving for all our answered prayers
2) Continued prayer for Fran, Gary and Twyla's salvation as well as Brendan continuing in his spiritual growth.
3) Prayers for Brendan that he will do well at the new school he will be attending in September.
4) Prayers for Gary that God will lead a strong young Christian man into Gary's company and that this employee (whoever he may be) will be used by God to lead Gary to accept Christ as his Saviour.
5) Prayers that Fran, Gary's wife, will acknowledge that Gary is trying to change his ways and that Fran will have a softening of her heart and accept these changes as God's demonstration of His love for her family which will allow Gary to continue to grow and change.
6) Prayers for me to get back on track spiritually (been getting very lax and passive), as well as exercise and that I will get back to posting on a regular basis.

Julie (ETERNALMINDED)
1) Pray for hubby’s health – all areas of it. Pray that he has a desire to take better care of himself!
2) Pray for daughter and grandson. Daughter is not making wise choices in her life. Pray most of all for her salvation.
3) Pray that I really can focus on schooling this week. We are semi starting tomorrow and then next Monday we will go the full load. I really need to have some focus time on this!
4) Our church starts a new Sunday School year next Sunday. There are ZERO 1st and 2nd grade teachers. If someone does not step up to help then they will have to send kids with parents during that first hour. This is Adam’s group. I am already teaching 4 years olds during the 2nd hour and do not want to teach both hours. I need to be in the service.
5) Pray for me as I start teaching 4 year olds in Sunday School. Pray that hubby will be committed to going to Sunday School without me and will not start driving separately like we did before I took a break from teaching.
6) Pray for all that is going on in the world. Pray for Christians all over who are being persecuted. Pray for Israel.

Laura (His Own)
1) Praise God I am able to use my testimony over this parking and such to the people I meet as I am searching for a house
2) Praise God for our teens who volunteer in the Children's Ministry who are all set and ready for the 2014/2015 year plus some of our adult volunteers too
3) Pray that God will lead us to the right house that meets our needs which are many - near the local transportation train, near stores so my Dad can walk and we need 4 bedrooms!!
4) Pray for Israel
5) Pray for the Christians in Iraq who are being persecuted and executed
6) PRAY FOR OUR COUNTRY!!!
God Bless team


Be joyful always; pray continually; give thanks in all circumstances, for this is God's will for you in Christ Jesus. 1 Thessalonians 5:16-18

I can do all things through Jesus Christ who gives me strength! Philippians 4:13

Happy Lord's Day Friends!!
Elsie hope you have a wonderful trip!! A safe one too of course!!

Amanda hope the orientation helps take the jitters away!! Congrats on the new and fulfilling work!! Hope you can continue to post on the team and let us know how you are doing!

It has been a busy week here for me. Almost 2/3s of the way done with the hand stitching on the baby quilt! Will be glad to have it done and on it's way. Then have to begin the next one. DS seems to have an artistic opinion on the quilt for his baby. LOL Glad he isn't my SIL or I could be perturbed with him! ;-) So thankful Ddil is so easy going. I am blessed!!

It has been tax free weekend here. Went shopping both Friday and Saturday and got some things I needed. DD did more shopping than I am glad she found a lot of what she needed. I don't like shopping when the stores are crowded and there are long lines. ;-) So glad it is done for another year! ;-)

Have a great day all!!

Hi All,
Late night last night preparing for Ddil's baby shower. It will be so cute but is taking quite some time to get it all together. Hope I make it to bed early tonight. ;-)

Congrats on the weight loss Elsie!!! Woo Hoo!!!

Laura thanks for asking. The quilt is coming along well. working on square #6, hand stitching to make the figures have dimension. 9 blocks total. Then I will begin the quilt for my own grand baby! ;-) It won't be finished for the shower but even to give them a good idea what it will look like! ;-)
Glad Linus is doing well. Amazing how much love a dog can bring, huh?!!

Rugered you and Everyone else - Have a great weekend too!

Anjay so glad Jared and Lamai are still very much in love. Hope you can get those chairs done.
Hope the weather is nice for more kayaking!!

Hugs and blessings to all!

As for me:

Love the FREEDOM of being able to move about the country (ha ha - thanks Southwest) without the worry of a parking spot!!

Getting a comparative market analysis of the value of both houses next week

Still trying to look for something else that FITS everyone's needs!! God will direct us I know for sure when the time is right

Linus is doing OK - his ears are better, he has a pimple or sty on his eye that they checked out and we are trying to decide on his dog food which is expensive it is prescription so we are doing our best. he is SUCH a love

Getting things together for the Children's Ministry we start back next month - most of it is ALL in order just need to meet with my Junior Church assistants - they are three lovely ladies in the Lord as I call them - young teens afire for the Lord

Have a great week all

Laura

OH JOANNE - you asked about the car - it is doing well thanks as I said I trust my mechanic

emoticon for your loss, Linnie....Elsie

God's gift to you: a clean slate every day: your gift to God: what you put on that slate....

Most people watch what they eat from Christmas to New Year's when they should be watching what they eat from New Year's to Christmas


Do your best today; do better tomorrow

The more I sit...the hungrier I get!!!!!

To lose my seat, I must move my feet!!

I plan to lose more in 2014.

Linnie so sorry for your loss. It is hard to lose a loved one. emoticon emoticon

Dorothy

If you tell God no because He won't explain the reason He wants you to do something, you are actually hindering His blessing. But when you say yes to Him, all of heaven opens to pour out His goodness and reward your obedience. What matters more than material blessings are the things He is teaching us in our spirit.
