Time Away, Blog Fun and A Prayer Request

The summer has been busy and it is going by so fast. Long-awaited out-of-state family will arrive at my home today for a week. There has been a lot of fluffing and fixing going on around here. Now there will be time for laughter and sharing. Sightseeing and quiet time together on the patio. I probably will not be here for more than a late-night or early-morning peek once in awhile through the next few days. I don't think I will be able to post and share much with you. I will if I can.

I won the give-away at Melodies and Hymnsongs. Thank you, Cathy. I can't wait to see what arrives at my door soon. There are a couple of blog things I need to catch up on when I return. An award and a Meme tag that are long overdue. It will happen soon.

My dear little mother is struggling with some potentially serious health issues. And she has a severe case of Shingles. We would appreciate prayer for her. She is such a dear.

Until I'm back to share more with you - don't forget to take time to stop and smell the roses. Life is busy. And precious.

  2. Adrienne, I have lifted up your mother this morning to our Father, asking for a relief from the pain of shingles and strength to overcome any other health issues. I has thanked Him for her presence in your life and asked for grace to face this situation. Blessings, marlene

  5. Have a great time. My heart goes out to your Mother. I have had shingles twice and the pain is indescribable. My GP said it can be harder than cancer pain to treat.

  17. Hi Adrienne,
    It's good to take a break, resting is good for the soul. I will also keep your Mother in prayer and put her in my prayer journal. I really enjoy your blog and love hearing the song Give Thanks whenever I come to visit, it gently reminds me to stop and give thanks unto the Lord when I get so busy. I also tagged you, but if you can't I'll understand, I just wanted to share you with my friends. See you when you get back. Hugz Lorie
