Some thoughts

How was your Mother's Day yesterday? Mine was wonderful. It was a quiet day filled with the ones I love. What could be better? My hubby gave me a beautiful card and wants to take me out to get me something in the jewelry category. :o) What a guy. My oldest son gave me a beautiful card and a Nintendo DS game (yes, I have a Nintendo DS) that I have been wanting and searching for, "Professor Layton & the Curious Village". It's a riddle/puzzle game that has my poor 47 year old brain really working. My youngest son gave me a really beautiful card that he made himself and the first season of one of the great TV shows of all time, "The Dick Van Dyke Show". I've all ready watched 2 discs! Yes, it was a wonderful day - not because of the presents, but because of the thought that went into them and the fact that my children love me - just as I love them. It really is all about the love. The gifts are just a tangible showing of that love. They all put so much thought into their gifts. I love those guys!!

I did spend part of the weekend in my chair with the heating pad. I went out and pruned a rose bush (which wasn't easy on my back), but then I came in a picked up a heavy box filled with files and that did me in. I felt something "give" and knew I had done something dumb. The pain went down my right leg and I had to rest for the duration of the weekend. That's another reason my Mother's Day was quiet. LOL Today it's better, but I can tell I need to get into my physical therapy - and soon!

I've been helping my in-laws with their paperwork and bills. My poor mother-in-law came over to the house about a week ago all upset because everything was such a mess and the bills were either over-paid or not paid at all. She is getting more confused about things, so I had my son go over to her house with her and gather up all the paperwork, bills (paid and unpaid) and then we had to get them in piles and file them in a box (the aforementioned box that hurt my back). I have been making phone calls like crazy getting balances, the address changed so the bills come to our home, and getting past due things paid. I'm just so glad I can help them. I don't know what would become of them if I didn't. I was very concerned that there were a couple of utility bills past due - it would be awful for the power or water to be shut off on them. I'm relieved that my hubby and I won't have to worry about that now.

A final thought -

He said to them, "But who do you say that I am?" Simon Peter replied, "You are the Christ, the Son of the living God." Matthew 16:15-16

Who do you say Jesus is? I say what Simon Peter said so profoundly and so accurately. He is the Christ - the Son of the living God. No matter what you're going through, remember that Jesus is there for you - remember who He is! Nothing is too big for Jesus.

God bless you - Julie

  1. Your Mother's Day sounded wonderful! Mine was....hmmmm.....difficult. There were no casualties, so that is good. It is a NEW week!
    Praying your back gets better. I did something to my knee 3 nights ago in my sleep. I rolled over and the pain seared and I was WIDE awake. It has been very sore ever since. Yeesh, getting old is no fun!


Please leave me a message! I love hearing what you have to say and look forward to your comments.
