Wow! Am I LATE tonight! :)

Hi Y'all! I surely late posting today, aren't I? We have had a very busy day, working on the new counter for the kitchen. I am SO excited about it! It will give me a lot more space for preps, and it will hide my washer and dryer. Yep, our washer and dryer are in the kitchen...this house is 63 years old, built nail by nail and board by board by the Hubby's dad, and the kitchen is the only space available with a 220 amp breaker, and since we "make do," not redo, it stays, LOL! I have gotten used to it, but it will be a thrill to have them hidden away! And more space to work, whoo hoo! YIPPEEEE!! :)




I spent a goodly portion of the afternoon in prayer and praise today. That old enemy is attacking my body,but I am standing fast in my healing! I am trying to use wisdom in my daily tasks, but, sometimes, I want to "just get on with it!" Yet, I know, if I over-do, I will pay for it later. So, I am going at a turtle's pace...a wee bit faster than a snail, and less slimey, too, LOL!



Dropped by to "visit" a lot of my friends in blog land on HSB in the last two days, and sent messages to a few who haven't been on lately. It seems that many are fighting battles, other than just me...so, I am praying a lot lately. You know, I think it helps me focus on the goodness of the Lord to pray for others, and in turn, it helps me to stand fast in what I am asking for, as well. Because each time I see His move for the others, I remember what He said:  "Every Good and perfect gift cometh down from the Father of lights, in whom there is no shifting shadow of turning."  James 1:17

Isn't that an awesome thing to know? God has no shadow of turning! What He has done for others, He can do for US!




Well, I am off for a bit, maybe dropping in to visit a few more friends, but I leave you with this:



May the Lord bless you GOOD!

In the kitchen is definitely better than having to go down the road to the laundromat, huh?

And, I agree, it is a joy to pray for others.

Love,

Wow! It still seems strange to look at your comments and see hopeful heart and not remember writing the words only to remember....theres another hopefulheart!

I can tell you, I sure appreciate your prayers for me and my family. God really does use you mightily.

I hope you have a great anniversary!

Make sure and post pictures of your new kitchen LOL....I love old homes...if walls could talk hey?

I cannot seem to find many of the old HSB friends. So very sad.

Feeling incredibly low today...maybe all the rain. Not really, other things in my life.

I pray you have a wonderful weekend.

Luv,
Connie
