Busy, busy, busy!

This lovely graphic is by Little Birdie Blessings.
I can't believe it has been 2 weeks since I posted.  Life has become far too busy.  Since I don't have time for a long post, I'll just share a sort of list of what I've been up to.

* Working on my Sunday School study, Elizabeth George's The Heart of a Woman Who Prays.  We're starting chapter 12 in Sunday School tomorrow.

*  Trying to finish a couple of craft projects for belated birthday gifts.  Maybe this week!

*  Trying to spend time with my elderly dad every day.   My brother passed away last month and my dad is missing him terribly.

*  Working at decluttering my dad's home while spending time there.

*  Trying to find good homes for the things I'm decluttering.

*  Struggling to keep my head above water with my own responsibilities at  home.

* Doing the study You are Loved, from  This is an online study, but my daughter gave me the book for Mother's Day and we are both doing the study using the book.  It's refreshing and encouraging!

*  Keeping an eye on our little and rather sickly garden.  We planted a few things -- lettuce, basil, tomato plants and squash plants from friends.  And marigolds, which are the only things that are really doing well.

And there are other things ... many other things.  It's a busy season of life.  But God is able!  And His strength is made perfect in my weakness.  I can do all things through Him!


  1. It does sound as if you are busy Mrs T....will pray for you as you attend to home matters for you and your dad. I am so sorry to hear of your brother's death, I am sure it is hard for the whole family.

  2. Thanks, Arlene, for your thoughts of sympathy and especially for your prayers. I appreciate your love and concern more than I can say.

    Wish I could spend more time in blogland, but it's just a different season of life right now. I'm trying to think that I'll be able to do "Christmas in July" on my Christmas blog again this year, but realistically it just may not happen!

    Yes so sorry to hear about your brother. I will pray for your Dad. What a blessing it must be to him to have you near. I often wonder who will take care of our parents someday as they all live far away. Yes seasons of life they change and it makes me so much more thankful that Christ NEVER changes.. thinking of you!
