I am here! Just burried!

We worked and worked and worked yesterday. Did I mention that we WORKED?? The garage is coming along nicely. As we took away 2 loads to the dump yesterday and have yet another one loaded and ready to go on Monday. We moved most of the furniture out, got the work bench all cleaned up and are in the midst of getting things prepped for painting. I am soooo excited to see the transformation. I cant wait to start the DECORATING. I am over the boring stuff. Also over the hard work stuff too.

My inlaws were heaven sent yesterday. Well, ok for the most part they are EVERY DAY. But they helped sooo much. My yard is all nice and neat and things are coming along nicely. I wouldnt have been able to do it without them. THANK YOU SO MUCH!!

They also brought me a cake fer my Birthday. Wasnt that sweet?! The big day isnt til tomorrow....but I think I am enjoying this celebration all the time. Specially since tomorrow I will probly have my head in a paint can.

Anyways. I hope you are creating bunches! Enjoy your Sunday. Be blessed with peace!

I received this email today from a dear friend. I am going to make it into a poster and hang it in my new room. I think it is stunning.

When I meditated on the word Guidance,
I kept seeing "dance" at the end of the word.
I remember reading that doing God's will is a lot like dancing.
When two people try to lead, nothing feels right.
The movement doesn't flow with the music,
and everything is quite uncomfortable and jerky.
When one person realizes that, and lets the other lead,
both bodies begin to flow with the music.
One gives gentle cues, perhaps with a nudge to the back
or by pressing Lightly in one direction or another.
It's as if two become one body, moving beautifully.
The dance takes surrender, willingness,
and attentiveness from one person
and gentle guidance and skill from the other.
My eyes drew back to the word Guidance.
When I saw "G": I thought of God, followed by "u" and "i".
"God, "u" and "i" dance." ~ God, you, and I dance.
As I lowered my head, I became willing to trust
that I would get guidance about my life.
Once again, I became willing to let God lead.
My prayer for you today is that God's blessings
and mercies are upon you on this day and everyday.
May you abide in God, as God abides in you.
Dance together with God, trusting God to lead
and to guide you through each season of your life.
