Just Some Thoughts

I'm sorry I missed you yesterday.  We were having technical difficulties on the farm.  The air was not working (HOT), and the breaker in the office kept flipping if the window unit air and computer was on at the same time.  Today the repairman came and fixed the central unit.  And Pappy discovered that the reason the breaker kept flipping was because Grandboy cut on the heater.  We can't run anything else if the heater is on in there.  So it was MORE hot than it needed to be!  Well, all's well that ends well.  Just glad to be cool.

I think being the Mother of adult children is the hardest job in the world.  I have listened to my girls bicker and carry on all afternoon.  I was wishing that it was a church day so I could go and focus on our Saviour.  I remember at another congregation we attended years ago, they would say "Some days you need the congregation, and the other days the congregation needs you!".  This was a day I needed them! 

I have wanted to start a ladies prayer group for several years.  Unfortunately, the ladies I know have not felt the same need.  I have thought about maybe advertising for ladies who would be interested in this type of activity.  But I don't know if there would be a response.  Maybe I should think about it again.  My preacher feels that we don't need others to pray for us.  That our faith should be strong enough to pray for ourselves and get what ever we want that way.  But I would definitely like a lady or two to share prayer needs with.  Maybe some day I will find a way to make that happen. 

How is a Mom suppose to feel when her daughter disinvites her to her grandchild's birthday party?  I'll let you know when I figure it out.

That's all for today I guess.  A lot about nothing much, it seems.  Thanks so much for stopping by.  And thanks for all the comments.  It is very encouraging to see them!  Honey

Grandboy's first birthday.  This year he will be 3!


  1. I think you are a great grandmother. He's lucky to have you!

  2. Oh my goodness. No wonder you can relate to my situation! I'll be praying for you, and please know that you can send prayer needs my way anytime you want. I'll never say no. :)

  3. Thanks Bobbey! I'm definitely seeing my days of difficult mothering lately. But I know this will pass. Praying for you too!
