here and there...

You may have heard the little ditty...."Jimmy cracked corn and I don't care...". I have found myself so weary this past week, that was the remark that came out of my mouth as I traveled the freeways and interstates with my husband. Here and there...to and fro. To airports, to hospitals, back and forth.

And it is not my intention to dwell on the fact that the sunshine is on vacation...

Yet, there is so much good, and joy, and answered prayer swallowing me like a blanket. I want to abide in Him, fully, with trust and faith being stirred continuously.


Weariness has a tendency to grab my soul from time to time and joy flitters out the window...tweet, tweet. Fixing my eyes on Jesus, the author and finisher of my faith... I am reading the book of Hebrews...rich words of power and strength.

Alan is in Thailand, settling in, I want to think so anyway. He likes it so far. And I am having to do things I said I have no interest in doing in order to communicate with him on a regular basis. We are figuring out how it will all work for everyone concerned, daily. Time changes and schedules make it interesting.


We received a phone call Thursday night around 10:45, the time I was just laying aside my sewing to go and take a shower...my mother-in-law had fallen, and it looked like she may have broken her hip. My husband and I packed a small overnighter and headed out to make the two hour drive to the hospital. I am thankful to report she has come through surgery remarkably well and is being transferred to a rehab center today.


Tomorrow brings another adventure. My beautiful daughter is turning 17 on Wednesday, so just the two of us are making a junket to Richmond for a couple days. She is a" museumy" type of gal and there are some museums she wants to visit in this city.

I told George I loved him today; I realized he has established residence in my heart now. I still miss my Penny sleeping beside me at night, George prefers sleeping on a bedside chair instead, but he is here to stay. Therefore, I scattered a few here and there photos of him, being George, and all.

Praying for safe travels and that you might find rest. George looks like a very contented fellow.

Blessings!

I'm glad George has made his way into your heart. He has so much personality. Olive sleeps by my side most nights until she decides to sleep against my face which makes it hard to breath. But I'm glad she likes our bed, Pepper is a chair cat too. They have their preferences.

Look forward to hearing about the trip! I would like to go back to Richmond and do some more exploring, I enjoyed the time that we were there.

We have one son in Kuwait and another in Russia. I'm so thankful for e-mail, Skype, Tango, and Facetime. We haven't had any problems with the timing. When it's early morning here, they're winding down for the evening, so it works out perfectly. I do miss my boys, though and can't wait until they come home this fall.

Glad you're loving the kitty, George. I'm a cat person and love having them around to talk to and pet; very comforting.

A Wednesday morn in May appears to be a very good day to begin a binge of healthy eating once again.  This granola is super easy to make...
