I couldn’t hardly believe it when I looked at the last post date and it’s been two weeks since I’ve blogged.
It’s been a whirlwind two weeks for sure.
A few highlights…
Most of the these ladies I get to see on a regular basis, but Michelle and Debbie are special occasion friends due to the distance between us. It was a fun morning of shopping, shivering, eating, shivering, and chatting and shivering. Yeah, it was a mighty cold morning. The table we’re sitting at in the picture above was right under the heater.
The morning after our get together, DH, myself and 3 others left for Hackleburg, Alabama, where we served doing tornado cleanup back in May (you can read about it here)to work with the organization Eight Days of Hope.
In the span of 8 days, they expected to have 1400 volunteers on the ground in Hackleburg and Smithville, Mississippi rebuilding homes and churches. We participated for three of the eight days and were able to help on a new home for the Galloway family.
The Galloway family worked alongside us in May on the church even though they had lost so much themselves. True servants.
We arrived home in time to attend our annual church conference and so happy we did. What an encouraging time, as well as a few well deserved proverbial kicks in the spiritual pants.
Sunday was a day spent catching up around the house.
Doesn’t everyone dust the tops of the cupboards with an air compressor? No? You ought to try it sometime. Just make sure you’ve done no other cleaning first because you’ll have to do it all over again once the dust settles. :/
This week it’s back to my real job to rest!
