Word and Wees

Thank you to those who have prayed for me this week. Sometimes the reality of life, illness and death hits you like an unexpected break of a wave on the ocean. 

I have so many hurting friends at home. When you move away you are alone in your grief and prayers and confusion. However, I know "I am not alone for my Father is with me."

I did what I do when I'm stressed (besides eat), I paint. I did it! I painted my front door.

From blue... gray.

If you could see the whole house, you could see that the blue didn't work. I'll show you in another post. Our house needed some continuity. I'm better satisfied. 

My garage is full of projects that I am giving away today.

Yes, that would be me! Never-finish- what-you-started. The chest would require more than I'm willing to give so I'll give-as in- give it away. It has a thick coat of enamel paint that I thought I could cover with chalk paint. Ugh!

I'm getting $10 for the splintered shutter that I found by the side of the road.  

I'm keeping the shorter one.

Took this little bit to the splash pad yesterday.

She made a friend.

Afraid at first,

It didn't take her long to enjoy!

Thanks for letting me share my woes and wees.


  1. I can fully relate to the first part of your post. Sometimes it is extremely hard but we survive. Love the little cutie!!! Hugs and prayers, lJ

  2. {{Bonnie}} you are always in my prayers sweet friend....smiles

  3. I am sorry for the loss of your friend. Everyone deals with grief get ambitious, I see. Looks like the little one is staying cool. Hugs and prayers for you!

  4. I am so sorry for your loss. This is one reason I try to always pray for all my blogging buddies. One never knows what tragedy or heartbreak or anguish is being endured. Jesus knows. He is our comfort, peace and strength.
    The youngin's are cute. Playing in water reminds me of my youth. Happy days.
    Have a blessed evening.
    Luv ~:)

  5. I'm sorry for the loss of your friend and dealing with distance.
    I love what you did to the door.
    I also love splash pads and the way kids make friends so easily!

  6. I'm glad you had a fun time at the splash pad. Life's little blessings carry us through the trials.

  7. I love to paint:) There is just something about changing the color, the smell of paint and a little exercise too! Share your woes whenever you want to, we all have them! The Wees are precious! Have a blessed day dear friend, continuing prayers and HUGS!

  8. I wish I could get my husband to let me "Get rid of stuff" we will never do or use. But was cause him stress..he is a horder...even in our little place.

    Those bathing beauties are just too adorable for words.

    Love and hugs
