Staying busy

"I can do all things through Christ which strengtheneth me."~ Philippians 4:13
~~~oOo~~~
Hubby's trip has almost reached the halfway point. Today he's in New Hampshire touring old churches and cemeteries. It's rained just about every day he's been up in New England. Sure wish we could get some of that rain down here! It was 95 degrees here yesterday, and today it will be the same. Lil' Nut and I will probably end up in the pool after lunch so that we can stay cool. Scorchin'! My poor garden is hanging in there. The beans will be ready to pick in a few days, and the tomatoes are getting bigger. I've been watering by hand early each morning in an effort to conserve water. I've been staying busy while my hubby is away; it helps the time go faster. Although, I guess I'm busy all the time anyway! :) Yesterday I went to a few stores and purchased the remaining items needed for decorating the church fellowship hall for Saturday's Mother-Daughter banquet. The menu has been finalized and the program is ready to be printed. Friday will be spent decorating with the help of some ladies from church. I sure do appreciate them! We're preparing for 300 ladies, so tables must be arranged strategically to accommodate everyone. A few young men from the high school will help set those up for us. Many hands make light work. Our guest speaker for the banquet is a pastor's wife from the Jacksonville area. I'm so glad that she and her two lovely daughters will be joining us Saturday, and I'm looking forward to our time of fellowship. I've fallen a bit behind with things around the house, so hopefully I'll get caught up with my housekeeping tasks over the next couple of days. If I'm super industrious, maybe I'll even get some planting done around the front of the house, too. No matter what, I know that if I keep my eyes on the Lord and seek His wisdom and guidance for each day, He will show me what I need to do.

I'M SO EXCITED TO READ ABOUT YOUR MOTHER-DAUGHTER FELLOWSHIP AFTER SAT. MAKE SURE YOU POST ABOUT IT. NOELLE AND I ARE ATTENDING ONE FRI. NIGHT AT MY MOTHER IN LAW'S CHURCH. WE'RE EXCITED. I'LL TRY TO POST ABOUT IT TOO.

I PRAY THIS FINDS ALL WELL WITH YOU AND YOURS.
HAVE A DELIGHTFUL DAY!

Hello,

I pray the time goes quickly -- it's no fun to miss your hubby.

It's hard to believe your garden is in full swing. Here in Michigan we haven't even planted anything yet! It's also nowhere near warm enough to go swimming. LoL

Take Care,

Trixie

Oh I hope he is enjoying NH despite the rain! We had some rain here last evening and again this a.m. but sun is out now here in the Albany area. We LOVE NH and have vacationed there 3 times and my husband's youngest sister lives there with her 2 children. NH is home to SoulFest a HUGE (think Christian Woodstock) Christian concert that lasts 4 days with all kinds of Christian pop, rock, soul, country groups. I got to see the NEWSBOYS last august...it was fantastic and the teens from church were awesome and lives were committed to Christ via this festival.
Enjoy keeping busy...great Scriptures!

I'm glad you have been able to keep busy -- that is the number one tip I've received and given to anyone going through a time of separation! :o) I'm guessing he is home or almost home by now; hope you are enjoying some special family time together :o)
