Oh the Joys of Spring!

So, what is it about springtime that has me wanting to purge..
I mean PURGE, every storage space in my house
On Saturday I had just had enough of not being able to see
the floor in
our bedroom closet, or the top of the night table...
I took everything that was on the floor and dresser,
and let it know it was
no longer welcome in my bedroom
(it found the hallway floor)
that way it had to be dealt with and not just put back.

Now, I know I should have purged much more, and I will - TODAY :)
Maybe I'll take a picture, if I'm not too embarassed.
Problem is, there are so many little places like that in my house,
the pantry, spare bedrooms, cupboards...even the bathroom.

I even got Dustin in on the fun and he brought a bag full out of his room
just between us...that was only the tip of the iceberg!!

Why do we/I think we have to keep everything?
So many of those 'things' were left sitting in a corner or on a shelf
for months, ok, maybe even years...unnoticed!

You'd think it would be easy to get rid of them....not so!
You know the thinking.."but, I might need that" OR "so-'n-so gave that to me"

SO, today will be stage two...
and I will show no mercy!
There is no storage room in my house - so out they go!

Wish me luck...that I won't give in...I NEED to do this! :)

Only the results were 'good'

The most important day in a believer's life
is the day we remember what our
Saviour did on the cross for us

I'm so thankful for what He did...
with his eyes on His creation...
"It is finished!"

"But God demonstrates His own
love towards us,
in that while we were still sinners,
Christ died for us.
Much more then,
having now been justified by His blood,
we shall be saved from wrath through Him."
Romans 5:8,9

Wicked week!

I hope not too many of you have been hit with this crazy flu bug that's going around. So far several of our family members have had one form of it or another...cold symptoms, fever, aches, laryngitis, back pain, neck pain...not fun!! Even some of the little ones fell prey.

I've got a big pot of chicken noodle soup on and looks like it may not go far enough.

I had planned to get lots done today ~ I guess there's always next week....seems like I've been having to say that for one reason or another for a while now. Les' back is just not good and of course his arm is still painful from the fall he took a couple of weeks ago. We're supposed to be cleaning the church today as well. I guess I should be happy just feeling better than most of my family!

Good news though, it looks like our plumbing fixtures are on their way so hopefully we can have our bathroom back in the next few weeks!! Oh right, I just said Les' back and arm aren't good - nevermind. Volunteers anyone?

Blogger Bugs

I find it so frustrating when I go to make a post and
all seems well..
then somewhere between making the post and
returning, pictures go missing!
I'm still figuring out how this all works most of the time,
so for me to 'fix it' takes quite the effort.
The previous post did get fixed but not without me
spending a considerable amount of time trying to do so.

Does anyone else have these issues or am I that blogger-challenged?!
