Why is it that something can happen and all that trust is thrown by the wayside? Why do we believe others instead of believing what our friend has said? We are human; we say things and do things to hurt people sometimes. It grieves me, but I have done it. Sometimes because I'm upset and sometimes without meaning to. Some people forgive and the relationship is restored; some don't. I have lost relationships that have meant so much to me. I have examined my heart and tried to make amends, but to no avail. They have simply written me out of their lives. My heart hurt, but there was nothing else I could do. I still miss them.
Why can't believers work things out? Why do we not believe what the other person is saying when they are trustworthy? I know emotions get in the way and sometimes it takes a while to work through things. But why can't we work through it and go on? I have relationships like that and they are the ones that truly mean the most to me.
Why not be unoffendable? Or at least why not try working on it?
These are my thoughts for today. Right or wrong they belong to me. If they are wrong then God is able to show me and correct me.
Relationships........don't take them lightly.

If you will, please say a prayer for her.
I've dealt with my emotions this morning the way I usually do. If I want to do something and am not sure what to do, I cook. I have a cake cooling and then Hannah and I will take it over. Each of our children were sad to hear of his death. Even Hannah wants to see if there is something she can do.
Praise God for tender hearts.

It is beautiful how God has done everything at the right time. He has put a sense of eternity in people's minds. Yet, mortals still can't grasp what God is doing from the beginning to the end [of time]. I realize that there's nothing better for them to do than to be cheerful and enjoy what is good in their lives. It is a gift from God to be able to eat and drink and experience the good that comes from every kind of hard work.

I had to work today and Bethany was off so she and Hannah are making tacos. I made a salad for Donald when I got in after 4:00. Then I finished the ironing. The ironing board is even put in its place! Drum roll, please........That is an incredible feat for me! Be impressed.

Yesterday Donald and I visited my mom and his dad. My brother and his wife got mother a dog after my dad died. Maggie is a sweet dog, but she goes crazy when someone comes in. She loves attention and wants it the whole time you are there. I hadn't visited with mother since she stayed with us for a few days. Donald's dad took us out to eat. He loves boiled shrimp. That is what he gets every time he gets to eat out. He was talking about eating out the day before and he said he ate so much he was ashamed of himself. For some reason it was so funny to me. I think that's the first time I've ever really laughed at something he's said. After we got back I rode with Daniel to Home Depot where he did some shopping. We had a great time together and laughed a lot. By that time my headache was back so I took a bath and watched TV in bed. I watched a rerun of "Army Wives" and it's one of my favorite shows.
As you can see I'm just rambling on so I think I'll get the Sunday newspaper and sit in my big comfy chair and read it. I definitely am having a lazy day.

A few weeks ago Erica gave me this award. I told her I would try to get around to it so here goes.
Here are the rules:
1. Put the logo on your blog.
2. Add a link to the person who awarded you.
3. Nominate at least 7 other blogs.
4. Add links to those blogs on your blog.
5. Leave a message for your nominees on their blogs.
Blogs that I read often and enjoy are...
Hannah because she's my daughter and she makes me laugh. Especially the entry about the pink hair. See, I'm a good mother because I told her she could have pink hair. LOL
Rebekah because she's my daughter and I love reading her bits of wisdom and about her life. She just needs to update more often...hint, hint.
Bethany because she's my daughter also and I love the way she writes. All my kiddos astound me with their wisdom. She needs to update more often, also.
Emily I met her through a homeschool email group. She has five children also and her husband is a pastor. She has lots of pictures and keeps you updated with their lives.
sonofapreacher I love Pastor Ron's blog, his love for life and the Lord, and his sense of humor. He definitely needs to update!
Amy is Pastor Ron's daughter and I started reading her blog because of her dad. She is a great writer and makes me laugh.
Dawn I started reading her blog because of her post on eBay. She was selling some Pokemon cards her children had slipped into her grocery cart. She has six children and keeps me laughing with all their antics. She has a book coming out next year!
Of course I read Erica's blog, and Sherri's, and others. (Sherri if you are reading this you need to update also! Love you!!) There are others I would read if they would start blogging. Now all I have to do is get around to number 5.

Yesterday was awesome. On the months that have five Sundays we have "Jubilee" Sunday at church. We all bring food and eat together after the special service. Yesterday Pastor Ron and his lovely wife, Anne, was with us. His message was fantastic, as usual. We all look forward to the times they can be with us. Our youth group had a fundraiser and sold Sunday Sundaes for dessert. They passed out a paper with all the ingredients they offered and you checked what you wanted on your Sundae. They were very good and we had quite an assortment of goodies to choose from.
I came home and had a nap. In fact, this has been a "resting" weekend for me. It began Friday after dinner as I did something I have not done all summer. I got a blanket and laid down on the couch and watched tv. Then I watched a movie with the girls. After that I took a bath and watched tv in bed. I woke up at 7:00 Saturday morning, rolled over, and woke up again at 10:00 a.m. I did quite a bit of ironing, but that is really all I have done this weekend. Donald took me out for lunch around 2:00 and then we went shopping for shoes for him. We also went to Walmart to get ingredients for the dish I took to church yesterday. Donald helped me water my yard late that evening and then it was more tv from our bed.
Bethany and Bright are up. Bright always expects to be fed after he gets up. It doesn't matter whether it's early or late cause it's always time for breakfast. I guess I've rambled on enough so I'll let Bethany have the computer.
I'm just nice that way. (Remember I've been on for over two hours!)
