Today I made the decision to keep my facebook page. I had thought about getting rid of it but realized that I do enjoy, it maybe not all the time but the majority of the time.It is real nice to reconnect with old friends. Today I came across a name I hadn't heard or thougth of for almost 15 years and when I went to her facebook page I knew almost everyone on her friends list. that took me back to the one place where I felt was home. Back when Jennifer and Mattie were little we lived in a very small town and started going to the local Assembly of God Church. I knew the first time I stepped in that door I was home. Everyone was so wonderfully friendly and not just on that first day over the next 5 or 6 years that we attended there we were so graciously welcomed. I think about that church from time to time. It was the place my son at 2 years old learned his first Bible verse "We are helpers" not sure where it is in the Bible but I was so proud of him. Anyway enough of that.
This past week or two has gone by so slowly as we are waiting to hear about a job. I do not like to wait at all!!! This next week we are supposed to hear about it and I am praying it will be on Monday and not on Friday at closing time. Roger has tried to stay busy, but lets face it,it's so hard for someone who is used to working all day just sit around and wait. He has been helping around the house because well frankly I have been doing nothing. MY daily list of things to do has not been getting done at all. The basics get done, meal making and laundry but then that's because Roger is doing them. I have been totally dropping the ball on my homekeeping.
This past weekend we went over to Jennifer's house for a small party. Chris' Mom was visiting and we had never met her so it was nice to go and visit.
Katie showed us her and Dylan's new bunk bed set~
Jennifer's also got a new bed, I think it is very pretty~
Our tree in the back yard has been blooming and it is just gorgeous, it doesn't last very long but it sure is pretty~
Roger has been working on a new gate for the side of the house, it turned out beautiful~
Here you can see (if you look closely)Mandy on the other side of the gate looking through~
As I had mentioned in a previous post Mattie is getting married. We didn't know for sure when but we now have a tentative date October 22, 2011, I have been in contact with Sara, his future wife about giving her a bridal shower, this is a little hard as she lives in Las Vegas but her Mom lives here so she does plan to come this summer and I think we will just give her the shower then. This is also just a tentative date as if Roger gets a job we may have to move and then of course I won't be able to give her the shower. We will have to see what happens. Hopefully we will know by the end of next week.
I was looking through old photos yesterday and came across some from 2007 and I had so many crafty things I had done,seems like I just don't have the desire to do any type of crafts anymore! My favorite thing to do is embroidery but even that is just not interesting to me. I remember when I got the baby quilt for Katie. I started working on it in August and I had it embroidered and sent to get quilted and had gotten it back before she was born in October. I sat and worked on it for hours everyday and enjoyed every minute of it. It was a lot of work but it turned out so pretty when it was done.
Here she is with it, hanging on the wall in her bedroom~
I also made one for Dylan his was made of small squares and then put together and quilted ~
I only did the embroidery part the person who quilted them did everything else. Now I am just not interested in doing anything, even reading which is another thing I used to LOVE!!
Please if you remember keep me in your prayers and also Roger and the whole job situation.
I think this next week is going to be very stressful for both Roger and I but I am trying very hard to keep my head pointed at the sun..
I recently found an old song that I just fell in love with, I don't know the name of it but the chorus goes
I can't see the sun with my head to the ground,
tears fill my visions and weighs my heart down.
But I found the secret when I knelt to pray
That when I lift up my head then He lifts up my heart and my troubles just all roll away!!!
