Oh my...things have been busy.
BJ and Madora got settled and we were having a wonderful time with them when Madora had to go pick up Roman. Her mother has taken a turn for the worse and could not handle Roman any longer. Madora has decided to stay and help with her mom until Roman has to start back to school. This will be a hard separation for she and BJ...the two of them are so connected to each other...Tom and I both see that they have the bond like he and I do. BJ has definitely found his "Soul Mate" this time.
I haven't been sewing or planting or really doing anything other than working, cooking, and cleaning. Speaking of cleaning...they have the most adorable little dog. It is a Chihuahua. A really good dog. Only 9 months old but hadn't had an accident yet. (Whew...so glad about that even though we have hardwood floors...don't want any accidents in the house...lol) He is playful and seems to just make friends with everyone. Doesn't know a stranger. Barks every time he thinks someone that doesn't belong is coming near the house but that is very seldom.
We got their Rental Truck unloaded a couple of Sundays ago and realized just how old and out of shape we are...HA! Not up to that kind of work anymore but somehow we all made it through it. YEAH TEAM!!
Madora had found a job just before she got called to go pick up Roman. We are hoping the job is still available when she gets back but it is important that she spend this time with her family right now. It will all work out to whatever God's plans are for her. 8-)
Anyway, life is full and we are pressing on with it. We've got Roman's room set up really cute and ready for him to just come in and fall into bed when he arrives (yeah, I'm sure that will happen...lol).
Here is some Max for today...
"Taking out the Trash
By Max Lucado
Who wants to live with yesterday’s rubble? Who wants to hoard the trash of the past? You don’t, do you? Or do you?
I’m not talking about the trash in your house, but in your heart. Not the junk of papers and boxes but the remnants of anger and hurt. Do you rat-pack your pain? Amass offenses? Record slights?
A tour of your heart might be telling. A pile of rejections. Accumulated insults. No one can blame you. They’re innocence takers, promise breakers, and wound makers. They’re everywhere and you’ve had your share.
Jesus answered Peter’s question in Matthew 18:21 and 22 when he asked: “Lord, how often should I forgive someone who sins against me? Seven times?” “No, not seven times,” Jesus said. “Seventy times seven!”
Do you want to give every day a chance? Jesus says to get rid of the trash. Give the grace you’ve been given!"
