It is a whirlwind around here.
Let me tell you!
On the surface I seem calm most of the time
but my family can tell you that I have a short
fuse these days.
They have definitely seen the stress
fraying the edges here.
the end is nearly in sight.
Just two fundraiser orders to complete.
One ships to Michigan ~
the other is local.
Two custom fill orders
and some Etsy orders to complete.
Then I am good to go into Christmas mode
for our family.
Georgia has her cataract surgery scheduled for next week.
It is time to start checking the weather to see if we are
going to have a blizzard or something.
This is the surgery that has been postponed twice so far.
Speaking of Georgia,
she has been such a blessing to Chelsea
in baking lots of cookies for Chelsea's bake sale.
This sale is happening at her work and will help
raise the funds to get her home from
Australia next year.
We were joking last night about the fact that
Chels has about half of what she needs.
She earned it by working her regular job.
So, we figure she can get there......
we'll be raising the money to get her home
so she doesn't end up a permanent
resident in Australia.
Chelsea and our friend, Sarah, have also been
baking for the past couple of weeks.
Our freezer has been very full of all kinds
of delightful treats.
I've been totally immersed in Sight and Sound's latest
production this year.
Jonah is so amazing.
The cast is one of the best I've ever seen.
Of course it probably helps that we have gotten to
know some of them
but I've really noticed an openness and heart for ministry
in this group that goes above and beyond.
Last evening we took advantage of a ministry
opportunity and took a guest and her children.
We are praying that the message she saw
touches her heart which has been hurt
May God speak to her and continue the healing
that has already begun in her life.
The whale tale is so much more than a tale about a whale!
(I know...big fish!)
I would appreciate your prayers as I am running on fumes.
I look forward to a clean house,
a kitchen without piles and boxes.
A dining room with a usable table.
A living room without more boxes.
And open horizontal spaces to dust.
Life is good.
Just prayer for the strength to finish
a very rewarding candle season.
