Thank You Lord ...

... for a man that can fix dern near anything on the planet!!!

My man, may I just say here and now for all of the world to hear, ROCKS!!! I love him far a million and five reasons, but today, today I love him for this: Proof positive that the Lord has give my man a gift of handy-man-ness!

The parts arrived yesterday afternoon - have I mentioned my fondness for FedEx lately - as a sweet surprise. And by 8:30 my man had that thing up and running. So, I took all of the laundry out of the room, sorted and arranged in order of importance all items (there were piles all the way down the hall and around the corner!) and started her up. Here is a glimpse of the laundry room this morning:


And this is three loads into the fun!! However, I must say that the room has not looked this organized in a loooooonnnnnngggggg time. I did not have to make a trip to the laundr-o-mat land of fun, and I am getting her done with great swiftness. Why? Because the great shaking has stopped. Not only did my man get her running, he got her running RIGHT! Funny thing, it wasn't supposed to shake like that! IMAGINE THAT!!!

In other news, Sweet Sophie Lee is 9 months old today!! I can hardly believe that this amazing child has been on this earth for NINE WHOLE MONTHS!! And, honestly, I look at our home and our family and our lives and TRULY can remember none of it before she came. I know I was happy and fulfilled and totally in love with my man and my sweet Hattie Grace - and NONE of that has changed (except maybe to grow), but she has made this life just that much more amazing. I cannot believe all that the Lord has Blessed me with.

We've got bills up the wazoo, laundry piled sky high, my house is never clean, and about 90% of the time I don't know which end is up. But I know this 110% of the time - I am loved by a God who has fulfilled my every dream and who loves me beyond all comprehension. And I know that He has blessed me abundantly, so I know that I will PRAISE His sweet and Holy name with all that I am for all eternity.

Thank You Father God, for my life. May I use what You have given me for YOUR glory.

Oh yeah! I'm glad you'll be able to catch up on laundry at home instead of going to the 'mat.

Awesome perspective! Absolutely beautiful!
And thank you so much for loving Belle Rose yesterday; I heard she had a great time, and it made my day so much easier knowing she was well loved even though I wasn't the one taking care of her.
lots of love!
