I'll Be Back Soon. . .

But first, I'm trying to clear my head!

A nasty cold grabbed hold of me a couple of weeks ago and it doesn't want to let go.  At first it seemed to be a light thing - something that was going away day-by-day.  Then it 'recycled' with a vengeance and has hung on with fury.  I am better but this is taking much longer than I had hoped.  In the middle of all of this I was scheduled to sing and play for the memorial service of a sweet older man from our church.  Two or three days before the service I completely lost my voice.  As I tossed and turned in my bed one of those nights I devised a 'Plan B' that I never had to put in place.   And I prayed.  Oh, how I prayed.  I asked others to pray.  God answered prayer and gave me strength and voice enough to minister in music at a beautiful service that honored a life well lived.  Then I came home and crashed!  Each day is a little bit better.  I think!

But, my mind - the part that hasn't been taken up by this 'bug' - has been busy thinking of things I want to share and photos I want you to see.  So, please be patient.  I will be back soon.  Yes, I will!

Oh, and that Christmas header?  Don't worry about it.  I will get it changed one of these days.  Or, maybe I'll just be early for the holidays later this year!


  1. i must admit how i wondered over your header. ;)

    wish i lived close by and could leave some homemade
    chicken soup on your porch. poor thing, you.

  2. Praying for full recovery ASAP!

  3. So sorry you've been sick, Adrienne. Do rest and get completely well. You're in my prayers. Looking forward to what you'll be sharing with us. No worries about the Christmas header. I think it's very pretty. Gentle hugs, Nancy

  4. Hope you are feeling better now. Just to let you know you won one of the books on my blog. Send me your address and I will send the book next week. marilyn tea at gmail dot com

  5. I hope you are feeling better! Thank you for your sweet comment. Yes, we do like lots of the same things, including YELLOW!!

    Take care, be well!


  6. O, so sorry you are, too...cold, my throat isn't sore and I haven't lost my voice, tho. The minute I felt the cold coming on, I started taking ZI-CAM and it has worked wonders on my congestion and over all feel...hope you feel better soon.]xoxo

  7. Gosh, I sure hope you're feeling better, Adrienne. Being sick is no fun at all. We'll still be here when you're up to blogging. Take care!

  8. Oh, you poor thing! I was wondering how the service went and meant to message you but just never did. God is good and so faithful and I'm so glad you were able to minister in song at his service. Now you take care of yourself. Maybe you've gotten yourself run down a bit and then it takes longer to get well. I'm sending up a get well prayer for you right now!
