A Week's Worth

It's been a week's worth of doings and bumps in the road

There were several things that required the musician to be in town, the visit falling on Mother's Day Weekend made the visit even more enjoyable

With the musicians help we painted a spare bedroom (it used to be his old bedroom) I will post photos when it's finished. We still have to do the ceiling. I know you're supposed to do the ceiling first, but we weren't planning on doing it at all.

Husband's glasses fell out of his pocket and have been missing for the last week. (he didn't lose them at home) Thankfully he had an old pair that he has been able to use until someone finds the ones he lost or he gets another pair, inconvenient but it could be worse.

My back has been behaving badly, and my physical limitations have been preventing me from doing as much gardening as I would normally do and caused me to have a slight "over it moment" at physician's office. (read...slightly emotional) My emotions tend to betray me, they reveal what's really going on inside my heart more than words ever do. My desire for self sufficiency has been showing.

We were reminded by a letter that came in the mail last week, that we are indeed getting older and that plans that we had made for for future needs, would probably need to be changed....you think you have it all figured out....till you don't.

I think I am trusting God with my days...then I realize I'm not.

That last sentence ... oh my, I SO could have written that. I'm not proud of it, and it's a battle I've been fighting for a long, long, long time. :-(

Sweet friend, Life does indeed have it's ups and downs and for me lately I've said, One day at a time Sweet Jesus". And yes you are so right my friend...about the time we get things figured out then something changes! LIKE MY HEALTH INSURANCE! Have a blessed day. Hugs and blessings, Cindy

Good morning! I think MANY of us (in our age group!) will be able to identify with this post. I know I can that's for sure. It is just soo frustrating sometimes to fight with a body that is always protesting it seems in one way or another. And I THINK I am trusting Jesus till I realize AGAIN that I am not!...Praying you get relief for your back soon. Anxious to see the newly painted room! Enjoy your week'

I am so sorry for the many up's and downs that you have been facing, dear Maryann. Please know that you are in my prayers and may you find the strength needed through our Lord and Savior.

Hugs to you!

Hello, I know what you mean about the limitations; in my mind, I can still do so much more! It's the actual doing it is the problem!
May you get your back; back LOL
You are a very sweet Lady and still very young at heart Right; Right!
Love, Roxy

Oh, I think you "hit a vein" with many of through this post. Hubby has been so frustrated lately as he discovers his limitations and assures me that in 6 years (he's 6 years older than me) I will feel the same limitations. :o)

And, yes, just when we think we've got things figured out, things change.

Thank goodness we serve an unchanging God!!!

Happy week my friend!

Oh yes...it is so difficult to make concessions to our age and physical limitations. While I don't want to "give up" too soon, I also hope that I am able to accept such things with grace. I have seen too many older people refuse to make those concessions and begin to feel "worthless" or discouraged. I want to be used for the Lord at every stage of life!

I pray that you and your husband find wisdom as you make decisions about your future.

Ack!! As I read my previous comment, I hope that I do not sound as if I am chastising you! Not at all!! I am just speaking as one who is in the same boat...having to change and accept as I get older.
