Well, way too much is going on here in this little town in WV...ok, not a town just a little "oh,that was it?' type of place. In my younger years I was not very satisified with living in WV,but as I mature(sounds better than getting old) I have found more and more to be thankful for. Such as the fact that no matter how young,scroungy,dirty,etc....that males are in this part of the woods...they always open the door for you. Anyway, I'm trying to do too much...trying to spend as much time as possible with Benjamin before he gets deployed, trying to get him a quilt done,trying to get a few things ready for a craft fair, trying to spend more time reading my Bible...and the list just goes on and on. So, where did I hear the phrase "this too shall pass"? Ok, I thought I knew but I was wrong!!!! I guess I really am tired.
But, I will never regret trying to spend as much time with him and all of my family as possible. I have no doubt that God will be with the boys while they're in Iraq, and that if it is his will they will come home safely, my sadness comes from the fact that they will be so far away. I would feel the same if Miranda and her family moved far away. I love having my family within driving distance.
The furnace in our church was on the fritz today, so church was called off, we went to our home churcn, it was really good to get to see everyone. It's one of those places where you are always made to feel welcome. The pastor shared part of his life and the fact that as his mother got older and couldn't get around very well,she would take a few steps and then say "Praise the Lord!" What a reminder that we should praise the Lord with every step that we take.
I hate the fact that our church was called off, the devil has really been busy lately discouraging some of the families, and I just sort of feel like he won a battle today.....but not the war.
We had two big blessings this weekend....our daugher-in- law wrecked Friday evening, totalled her vehicle, but was unhurt....and then our 6 yr old gs called to say that he got saved this a.m. in church.....praise the Lord!!
Well, now that I have rested awhile I feel better. I still have a lot to do but..."PRAISE THE LORD"
