A handmaid of the Lord

Behold the handmaid of the Lord: Be it done unto me according to Thy word. These are the thoughts and experiences of my journey toward being a handmaid with Mary as my example.

Sweet Silence

My house is so quiet right now...but I suspect that everyone will be up soon! This has been one of the most lovely weekends we've had in a long time. We didn't end up going to visit my family because my mom called before we were to leave and told me that Julia (my littlest sister, she's almost 1) had a high fever and that we shouldn't come. I appreciated that because there have been MANY times that we've gone there and Isabella was sick (she's the second youngest sister - she's 3 1/2) and I've come home with a miserable Felicity. I was sad not to go, as it was my mom's birthday yesterday and I absolutly adore her - but we're going to go this coming weekend and we'll be there for Julia's birthday!

My house is a wreck right now, that is the real reason I got up before everyone else. Our a/c has been leaking water for about a month now and yesterday it reached it's peak by soaking about 6 ft. into our wood floor in the living room allll the way across the width of the room. ::sigh:: So, Charlie figured out how to fix it and it was a huge mess. Now there are towels and flashlights and a/c filters and all kinds of mess everywhere. He fixed it in the middle of the night last night while I was nursing the baby and fell asleep.

Things in life are really looking up right now...I so wish I could share some of the goings in our life on here - I have so many thoughts. And while I know this is MY blog and I can say whatever I want, out of respect for the position Charlie is in right now I just can't put a lot of details out there. Let's just say that in the near future there may be an opportunity for real financial peace. That's a huge leap from where we have come from...maybe I'll reflect on that later...

For now, I'm going to have some breakfast and clean up before my sweet family awakens!

I'm glad things are looking so promising. You should start a new blog that you can actually talk on!

Yay for peace. I'm experiencing peace right now too. I feel calm inside and that is really nice. I hope you have a great week, Andrea.
