Busy Weekend!!!!

This was a very productive weekend. We awoke at about 8:00 Saturday morning (I don't know when the last time was that we slept that late on a Saturday) we got our Bible and prayer in first thing and then the race began. I made pumpkin muffins, bread, boiled the chicken for the dressing and got the cornbread ready as well. Lately I have been doing as much of the Sunday dinner as I can on Saturday it is so much easier than trying to come home and cook everything in between services. After all the cooking was done, I rearranged the living room and did all the laundry up. Then finished any other housework that needed to be done. Then after all that we had a family soup dinner we had to go to. It was the first one we had ever attended and we had a wonderful time. Everyone who came had to bring a pot of your favorite soup I of course took Santa- Fe-Soup. It was great to see lots of family we had not seen in a long time and the same time having lots of fun. Below are some pictures of my work on Saturday.
Here is the living room prior to rearranging.

Let me tell you they were not shy on the soup either and it was great.

You Never Know What Life is Going ToThrow Your Way

Here lately life is been throwing us some curve balls. Just when everything seems to be going good all of a sudden your life is upside down. Recently my husband had a opportunity to change jobs. What a decision that was for our family. So we did what any intelligent person would do we took it to God and our Pastor. This was difficult because my husband has a very good friendship with his boss, but after much prayer and advice from our Pastor my husband will be changing jobs. We were very excited and just looking forward to relaxing since we had made the final decision when my husbands appendix ruptured. We were so surprised he just had a little stomach ache or so we thought. The next thing we know he is in the surgery room and shortly after that the doctor came out and said everything went great he was doing fine and he could go home tomorrow. Then the following Wednesday he had a slight pain in the lower part of his stomach which turned out to be a pocket of blood in the pelvic wall from the surgery so they had to go back in and drain the blood off. Thankfully it was not anything more than that. He is at home and doing good we were so blessed to have the friends and support we had during this time in our life. Most of all I thank God for being our best friend. You really never know what tomorrow will hold but we do know who holds tomorrow. God is just as much God in the inbetween moments as he is in the highest points of our lives. Praise God!
