Hello Company Gals and good friends & readers! Grab a bagel and pass your mug – I’ve got some great coffee and flavored creamer this morning! We got about 3″ of snow overnight, so we’re bundling up this morning!
Can you believe it’s Friday? It really is true:
Time Flies when you’re having Fun!
And I’ve had a fun week! I can’t really think of anything remarkable to share, it’s just been a mostly uplifting, positive, good week – and I’m gonna give God all the credit!
Despite some of the heavier topics we looked at this week, it’s been a good journey for me. I don’t know about you, but it really helps me to have word-pictures and to be able to relate to real women who have lived before us – and there’s been some good interaction from you this week, too – so thanks!
Next week, I’m gonna talk about some grocery-savings & tips, and start tackling marriage a bit more directly. I can tell you I’m NO EXPERT on marriage – I have NOT arrived at Proverbs 31 status – but being a wife is the second most important relationship in my life. Or at least it SHOULD be, according to God’s scheme of things.
I’m enjoying my reprieve from schoolwork, and am very pleased to report that I got an “A” in both classes! I was surprised since I submitted my paper at the very last possible second after writing it – but both of the classes – Issues in Counseling and Counseling for Women – really had a beneficial effect on me personally, and I’m looking forward to the 2 classes I’ll be taking this summer. I hope to share more information I learned from these classes – not just about addiction – but about a variety of things that touch our lives.
Getting the house under control this week has been a bit of a struggle. Roy & I have enjoyed some later-than-normal nights watching TV and talking and cuddling, but BOTH of the girls have been waking up bright & shiny at 5:30 or so every morning. Needless to say – we’re tired! =) Every time I try to take a nap, a list of 5 or 10 things runs through my head that needs to be done, so yesterday and today I’m getting things BACK IN ORDER so I can relax and take some naps this weekend! I highly recommend naps, myself… I got caught up on laundry yesterday, got the bathroom cleaned – so today is just getting things in order for our weekend.
We’ve got a few house projects to work on – and we’ve had loads of stuff hauled off so we’re getting things cleaned out. We also got some new living room furniture – and that has been a HUGE blessing for us. We are much more comfortable in our living room and have a sectional so we can all sit together. It’s been great!
Hope you all have a LOVELY weekend. I have never celebrated Palm Sunday in any special way, but it is a day to remember. Our church is performing “Yeshua” this weekend, and I’ve already cried being told about just one scene to come… Easter is the best day to celebrate EVER. Our risen Lord and Saviour is just really awesome. To know the sufferings He endured for the likes of me is more powerful and moving than anything else in this life. Praise be to Jesus for His meekness – the ability to control His power – to suffer death to bring us eternal life.
