I finished a book this morning lent by a friend and ordered the next one in the series on my Kindle.
Been reading while traveling to the camper for the weekend.
How quickly we forget the struggles as we enter a season of sunshine!
The winter season was difficult for me. Letting go of what I wanted, moving into a new mindset...
Spring was rougher...
In July, summer arrived.
What does autumn hold?
My words have held true throughout.
I have been catching up on DVRd programs as hubby napped and checking my blogs now.
Check out my granddaughter's blog. Creative, gutsy and fun!
I took Pam there today and we were trying to locate the large print section to find books for her mom.
I turned to find the owner standing behind me. As I was asking him where it was, my eyes caught sight of a sign over his shoulder- Large Print.
A big grin came across his face and we all had a good laugh:)
Pam found a book and I found an old copy of the New Testament, JB Phillips edition.
The Kindle is a great invention but it can't offer the experience of standing in a bookstore with anticipation of a good find.
Loaded up with popcorn and candy we settled in to watch The Help.
I hadn't read the book although I meant to before the movie arrived. I think the four women sitting in front of us had because they seemed to delight in scenes before we did, anticipating what was coming.
Laughter turned to tears by the end. My daughter described it as gut-wrenching.
We all loved it, from 15 to 59.
It was a great beginning to the week. Today we saw Lily swim (more later), did some shopping, had a great lunch and spent more time with my girls.
Now we are snuggled in at the camper for the night.
Thank you Lord for a blessed day.
Yesterday we visited the Amish bakeries in town and picked up more goodies.
The young lady working in one of them was sharing how she sometimes sleeps in- until 7:00a.m. :)
I managed to keep a straight face as that is when I awaken daily.
Pam and I are heading to the camper today.
Rainstorm moved through as we dug out the goodies.
We started out in my quilt magazines and moved on from there.
This one is my favorite new find! Wondering if it is always this delightful?
I have been looking forward to my friend Pam coming for weeks. Our first day together and I am feeling awful. Dizziness is back, exhausted, heavy like the weather. Prayed my way through the day.
Tonight we grabbed our umbrellas as we left to go to the funeral home. The weather report says 100 percent chance of rain.
I am in bed praying that tomorrow is a better day. Good night dear bloggers.

I touched up the walls with paint I thought matched and it dried darker. Sigh.
By the way, I scrapped my color scheme with the grays after purchasing a gallon of gray paint that I hated.
There are some good lessons in this time. I am learning to trust God's guidance and not worry about mistakes and relax.
Oh and remember what I said about God's backup plan? LoL. He has the master plan. I just get to enjoy the journey.
Tired but smiling.
If you read my post from last night, you know my plan didn't happen.
We have a floor in process and definitely not the white/gray.
I am still tackling the color theme, so I'll let you know how it goes.
I wanted to touch up my walls, but alas no paint left over. And no! I am not going to repaint the walls.
My scripture this morning:
Proverbs 3 Lean not on your own understanding. In all your ways acknowledge Me and I will direct your paths.
I'm glad God has a backup plan for all my failed ones.
Each morning I have been asking God for wisdom for the day.
Today I began in one direction and ended up in another.
I wanted to sand the floor in the guest room down to the bare wood but there were a few complications. My husband jumped in and encouraged me to get a laminate floor found cheap( relative term) at Mardens.
I followed his advice but now my house is upside down, my brother-in-law carpenter can't finish the job until Thursday, it's a different color scheme than I planned, and I am tired.
Looking back over the day, I realize the floor stripping, sanding, painting would have been hindered by the high humidity that we have right now but it seemed simpler at the time. Now I have baseboards to paint and....
Enough. I prayed for wisdom and my day turned. I will have strength to finish the project.
It is past my bedtime. Goodnight Blogworld.
