vacation ending

Leave a comment

we were supposed to be in Colorado…. but that got abruptly changed. so we stayed home for our vacation. God had other plans… like the hubby doing a funeral and having to have a meeting with the presbyter. all i know is… God cannot be put into a little box. or any box for that matter. God is God and we are human. God is Infinite, we are finite. God is in Control and we are not. that is what i know. and believe. and that no matter what other people decide ~ God will take care of us. He has in the past, He is right now and He will do so in the future until i draw my last breath. God saved me from myself and He continues to do so each day.
so what did we do? OMG!!!!  you should see my Garden Shed!!!!! my very own garden shed right next to my garden!!!!!!!!!!!  and my elderberry box is finished. and there is a new little wall of brick pavers in front of my hosta garden. and you should see my Garden Shed!!!!  oh wait, I said that.. but you really should see it!!!!!! so we worked outside and got a lot done… which actually he did all the hard work, I just did what I was told ~ you know, lift this hold this hammer this move this don’t do that kinda thing.
and we went to Franklin Park Conservatory ~ oh my. what a gorgeous place. Check it out here. the butterflies are amazing, the plants are amazing and there is Chihuly Glass there. had several dinners out. and i had dinner with a friend and lunch with a friend. Read several books, started a baby blanket for my french daughter Berry, laundry, bills, all the usual. oh, plus got the peach jam canned, and am picking tomatoes for pasta sauce and salsa to can. and tomato sandwiches… oh wow. thick tomato slices on bread with Miracle Whip… best dinner ever.
I am interested to see what God will be doing in our little ordinary lives. we didn’t go on the cruise with MWSmith (and Bob Goff was there too). we didn’t head to Colorado to do the Front Range Tour. we didn’t get to the Live on Lakeside concert with Mandisa (!!!!!!!!!) and TobyMac and Big Daddy Weave. we were here. and here is a good place to be.
