Wordless Wednesday


There's a Light at the end of the tunnel!!

We have an update on my last post and it is not a good update!! This struggling small church where everyone "Once upon a time" were very happy...the wolf has won!! He came in and took over!! There was a big upset last night and now the church is going to be missing some of its good members. Sounds like the "good sheep" are going to leave and go to another church. I just pray that this "other church" will be a haven for those that have had to go through this bad time...In a way at least this part is over...NEW HOPE in Illinois has been given to the wolves!! Hopefully someday someone will wake up and see what has happened..In the meantime the devil is smiling and a very happy camper!! Such is this world!!

This morning we are off to get Mother's second injection in her knee. She has one more. This coming Monday I am taking her to a vascular surgeon to see if he can figure out what is wrong with her feet and legs...poor circulation or just what is going on with her.

After our appointment this morning we are meeting Tootsie and her mama so that my dad and Mother can meet her. We are off to Sweet Potatoes restaurant. I wanted to go someplace where my parents have not been. It is a different kind of place so I thought this would be fun.

This afternoon I work again. At least it is the evening shift (which I like a lot more than days). I worked both Monday and Tuesday from 6:30 am to 1:00 p and then came back at night to help close. Really i got along just fine and am so happy to have these extra hours. The rest of the week I am on my favorite shift from 3-7 in the evening.

Mike is working pretty steady this week...good for us and our bills of course. Don't you wish that you did not have bills? Ours are just the regular kind that you need to live...utilities; insurance and house payment but you have to have these to just live!! I wonder how we are going to manage once we have to get fully on social security!! Should be a challenge!!

Not much else going on except a lot of heat here in Savannah. I got in my car at noon yesterday and the temp said 105...Even as I drove it only went down to 98!! I read that our heat index was 104 yesterday and I believe it!! Summer is here!!

I have tried to get around to as many of your wonderful bloggers as I can. Hopefully everyone is okay. Today Zaroga is having surgery..be in pray for her...Seems like Wednesdays lately have been when my friends are being operated on...

FLIP FLOP
Thought for the day: "When God takes something from your grasp, He's not punishing you, but merely opening your hands to receive something better."

Sorry about the church. I bet your folks are feeling the heat! It is to get up to 92 today and that is the highest it has been this year so far!! So summer is here!
I have lost weight! I have lost more since I posted about it!! I think this will help the blood pressure and blood sugars too! hugs Grams

Hello dear Sandy:-)

Catching up once again! So glad to hear that you've been enjoying time with your parents! Sounds like everything is going well your way so fingers crossed that it continues that way:-)

Don't think I could stand that kind of heat, though! I get too hot when it's 80F! lol We've been having some beautiful days this week so I've been spending as much time as I can outside.

What a shame that so much upheaval is going on at that little church. Hopefully it can be sorted out and the wolf can be shown the way out!! xoxo

Good evening Sandy, I have slept most of the day since I got home after my eye surgery..it is amazing to see well enough to blog on the computer without glasses!!!

Your parents are adorable..I need to visit them at your house for a longer visit after I recover..

Enjoy your night.. hugs, Barb

I love you my friend.

I'm really sorry to hear about the trouble at church. This kind of thing always makes me sad....I have never heard of a Sweet Potatoes Restaurant. Sounds good.

Pity about the wolves situation, however, the Light will prevail eventually. One cannot go through life like that without reaping what they sow somewhere along the line.

Denise said...

So sorry Sandy for the upheaval in the church. I have seen it happen too many times and it is always so very painful for some.. We must pray for the younger Christians that they not be turned away by this.. Pray for those that are wrong , that God might give them insight as to what they have done.......I will pray for you and that precious church.. How it hurts the hearts of those that only want to worship!

So sorry about the church breakup. I have seen is a few times and some have mended the problems, but the others were not so lucky. I will pray for all the members. Glad your parents are doing so well. Take care of yourself

Love and Hugs,
Joyce
