Life is rather smooth here for us lately and that is EXACTLY the way i want it to be!! We are still praying for my sis in law, Judy as she is waiting for the results from her biopsy. She had surgery this past Thursday. They opted to keep her an extra day!! DUH!! I am so upset how quickly the hospitals let people go home anymore..Craziness!! This doctor, though, kept Judy an extra day!! Thank goodness. She went to the doctor yesterday but we have not heard anything about that yet. Just keep praying for these results when they finally come back.

Seems awful, too, that in these electronic ages that we are living in, that we have to wait for 5 days for a biopsy to come back. I know I watch too many crime TV programs but honestly...I really wonder why it takes so much time!! The person and family that are waiting just have the longest wait ever!! We are close now so maybe today or tomorrow we will all know for sure.

Just finishing up my coffee this morning and wishing that my knee would stop aching!! It has been almost 4 weeks now and the ache is still with me. I exercise 3 times a week and try hard to do what I am supposed to do with it. I guess it is just going to take time. I am glad that I did it though.

We have had some beautiful weather but also some bad rain storms come through. We always need the rain here. The grass is a pretty green and that is not usually the real color for here where we get so much sun!! Nice to see it so pretty!! The flowers are really waking up and have been for some time. My Easter liles are about to bloom..kind of late but who cares..they are still pretty. My gardenias are about to pop too!! Beautiful fragrance!!

I am so thankful once again to all of you that have left comments on my blog or sent me email with kind prayers for my sil. You will never know how much that has meant to me..never!! The outpouring of prayers has been felt and was so needed and still is..Thanks guys Tons!!

Mike is working today and the rest of the week..AMEN!! He was home yesterday. This is nice when he still has work but can be at home too. Kind of like the best of both worlds in a way!!

While getting groceries yesterday, i saw this little girl in the aisle. I knew it was Maddie. She had her back turned so I went up very quietly and put my hands over her eyes. She was very calm..I did not scare her. When she found out it was me she turned around and gave me the biggest hug and kiss. Wow..grandchildren..THE BEST!!

Off to work on my bible study now. Still in Daniel 9 this week. What a book!!

Hope everyone is well and doing great in your part of our wonderful world!!

Bumper sticker from yesterday: "God is coming back, and Boy is he angry!"

Praying for you, and dear Judy. I love you my friend.

Hey girl....... that knee will take some time to heal........ Took mine several months...... that is not to depress you but to encourage you..... Just keep it moving so it will not get stiff.....

My heart goes out to Judy and her DH. I pray that the tests will be back today........ Not knowing is tough!

My Friend Jean touched the face of God last night at 9:37..... She is healed.......

Your knee will take time to heal, but I'm sure you are glad you had it done.

I'm looking at knee replacement surgery and don't know whether to have it done or not.

Praying for Judy. Have a great week, my friend.

Hi Sandy...
I rec'd an email from you and thought I'd pop over to say "Hi"....we too have a gardenia bush, and if Bud wanted to make me happy, he'd chop it out....I don't like their overly sweet fragrance.

Happy Earth Day to you [funny, here I am talking about chopping out a flowering bush and then wish happy earth day...kinda mixed sentiment, huh? Oh well]

We often wish we had more exciting lives but when it gets TOO exciting, that's when we realize we much prefer a smooth quiet life! lol Glad to hear that everything is going well with you but I do hope that you soon get relief from the pain in your knee. I guess it can take a long time to heal after surgery. Also great news that Mike has been working:-)

My prayers continue for your SIL. As you said, it's ridiculous that in this day and age, we have to wait so long for results. I always say that's the hardest part, waiting for results, because your mind just seems to think the worse.

It's been raining for the last 3 days here so even though the snow is now all gone, everything is still soaked. The next 3 days look much better, sunny and warm, so hopefully I'll be able to clean out my gardens/flower beds:-)

Take care of YOU my friend and Happy Earth Day:-) xoxo

I love Magnolias and Gardenias... hummm, could just be a southern thing!!
Still praying for you and Judy!!! I too am glad the doctor decided to keep her an extra day!! One more day to recuperate!!
Thinking about you, sister!!
