Tried and True

We are just here, doing nothing. We were planing to go to Washington DC, but changed plans because my condition, yea here again, this Polymiositis dictating my life!. So, why am I here with extra time to do blogging, gardening, face booking and having a blast? Well, because one of my best friend is here! She flew all the way from Nebraska, just to put up with this weird woman, Me.

On Fridays we get together with a homeschooling minded family and watch and discus The Truth Project videos. So we took my Midwest friend to our home fellowship thing. There came the question of how we met. Its a long story, a 10 year old relationship. Yes ,for all this long, long time this lady has dealt with me! We told the story of how we met, and they were amazed!But that was nothing, what really happened is, God made me see how much He loves me. In telling our story I went back and saw what this friend has done for me, the things she has gone through, for me. I think that sometimes we have new people coming to our lifes and telling us this or that, and so we go with it, thinking that we have found someone that really care for us. But we should no be carry away with this new "friends". I think that if someone loves you, someone cares for you, then they should stand by you, not just once or twice, but for a long time. My friend has done that!No, not everything has been sweet lollipops, we have had our moments! But after 10 years, we know what we mean for each other. I know she cares for me. And I got to see who has stood by my side, through my ups and downs. God showed me who just talked. I got to see, in my mind, a parade of people that promised me things, that said they loved me, that they cared for me. Its so easy to just talk, to promise things, to say I love you, but can you walk it, can you do what you say?

I soo wish I had never made some promises. And I soo wish I had never believed the people that just met and told me that they care for me. So, for me, the way I know who my real friends are its, through the time. Yes, friends are not perfect, but how long can they put up with me?

How do you know who is your real friend? How do you know who really cares for you?

Did you ever feel to just give up? Things just coming at you from the now where. The world telling you that you should do it this way, or that way, but not God's way. I have felt that way, there are many times that I just want to say "it is over!!" Forget this "trusting in the Lord" thing. I think this song is really good for those times.

And here it is with the lyrics.

Back in the Garden

Well, things are slooowly going back the way we want. I'm taking care of the garden more often. When we were planing to sell this house, I stopped taking care of my flowers. Someone came and told me that if he bought this house he was going to pull out all the plants and have a "nice green lawn". I didn't want to waste my time on something that was going to the garbage. But as soon as I found out that I was not moving, I went back and started to take care of my garden.


Done that!

We went to clean my friend's gutters, I was supposed to just hold the ladder and make sure she was not going to fall, because I'm scare to go up on ladders. I shake and make the ladder shake, next I panic and then I regret to have gotten on it! But she was taking to long (her first time cleaning gutters ever) so I got frustrated and went up there, its not too bad after all! Now I will not ask anybody to clean mine anymore. I will start cleaning them by myself. All is left for me to do is, put a check mark on "cleaning gutters" on the "things to do before I die".


If you kneel before God,you can stand before any man.

Yes, I'm alive!! I little lost, but now I'm found!! Really busy fixing the house. Yes a homeschool organisation did a home make over in my house. As soon as I can I will post before and after pics.

We are trying to get back in routine. Is soo good to be able to just sit down and enjoy a meal peacefully, with out a pile of boxes all over the house. So bless with my beautiful home.

Today we are doing school, and a little of jumping on the walls. Here is a video if you need a little music to get you started.
