Back to School & More

Well School has finally started here in the hills, Thank You God!!! I mean I love my boys but boy I do love having my routine plus my time. Josh has starting his senior year, so one of my babies will be leaving the nest before long. So far he is enjoying it, dealing with a new girlfriend, yearbook club and going to every school function. Caleb has started his 5th grade year, last year of elementary school. They grow up so quickly. He is plannng on joining band this year instead chorus. He loves to sing. Hopefully I will be back to quilting soon.

Well God likes to throw you a curve just when you think you have it all planned out. :) Here I thought finally time to myself, maybe get caught up on some reading, get those quilt kits sewn up, well Nope nada not now.

Last sunday my mom fell in her yard, yep seperated her shoulder. The Blessing is that it wasn't broken and she doesn't have to have surgery, so I give God Thanks for that. Then my sister broke her hip soooo................ So much for quiet life right now, LOL.

What is that saying " Want a laugh, Tell God your plans " Boy that is so true. ONe good thing is I've been catching up on some reading. One book I've been reading is The Facts of Life & other lessons my father taught me by Lisa Whelchel. I use to love watching The Facts of Life on TV while growing up. So far the book is pretty good, she shares parts of her life & how much God is in control. Very good read~~~

Well Time to get caught up on my housework.

I totally agree with you--I have noticed that "tell God" effect too!! It usually hits me when I get vain about something about my appearance. Once I was feeling really self satisfied with my hair (which doesn't happen often since I have unruly wavy fine hair)--but anyway, wouldn't you know it, our gas grill "malfunctioned" and crisped off all the hair around my face (eyelashes too)! So much for being vain about my hair--took well over a year for it to grow back to looking almost normal!

I hope that your family members recover quickly! My prayers are going their way!
