Ramblings and Prayer Request

My daughter, Julia helped me change my blog background. It was time for a spring-y look so she designed a new header to match the background we chose from the Cutest Blog on the Block. I am so impressed with her creativity and flair! She is a joy to have around!!

We have been led to attend a home church. It feels like we are finally home after wandering around for a long time in other fellowships. Every Sunday we come away blessed by the teaching and fellowship. We praise God for the new friends and a place to call home.

I also have been blessed with a new friend. She and her family live 1/2 hour away, close enough for regular visits! They are so sweet and we all get along so well. We just fit! That is an answer to a prayer for new friends. Thank you, God!

For all my new friends that I have found through this blog, I am asking for prayer. I am going to a doctor on Tuesday to get some help with disease that I have, rheumatoid arthritis. I will be seeing a rheumatologist to hopefully get some pain relief. I have not had full time medication for 10 years and I really don't want to start it up again. ( I had taken it for 2 years.) So please cover the visit in prayer. First, I want God's will to be done. Second, I need a better quality of life so that I can fulfull my role as wife and mama. It will be comforting to know that you are praying for me. If you will be praying, will you drop me a comment so that I know? Thanks so much.

Spring is in the air and we have lots of great projects on our plate. Our small garden is growing well. We will be adding more plants soon. Our second chicken coop is almost ready and our new day-old chicks will be arriving next week. My dear husband and Julia are going to the Father/Daughter Retreat at Callaway Gardens next weekend. That should be great. And of course, sewing and crochet projects.

Well, I guess that is enough rambling for now.
Have a blessed week!
Gloria

The blog looks beautiful! It is great how they learn when they are interested in something, isn't it?

I am so happy that you have found a home church. That must be a wonderful feeling. May the LORD bless you all through it!
I am also happy you have found a new close friend. God is so good to give us good friends!

I will look on your other posts to see if you mentioned how your appt. went. I have been so busy lately and trying to stay offline as much as I can.
I hope it all went well.

blessings!
