Hello again.

I've been away caring for my mom, who has returned home again after another hospital stay.
She is healing, but ever fragile.

Here's a blurry pic of a "Peanut Butter Dream Pop." Emily helped me make 50 of these for a charity bake sale. They sold in record time : )

Other than a few stolen moments making candy........

My days lately are filled with work and dreams......laughing and crying.......praying and hoping,
planning and sleeping.........sometimes all in one day!

I don't have any craft news other than I started to embroider some napkins. I tinker with my socks, but only occasionally, since they are my "take along" project and, well, I haven't been going anywhere lately.

My next big goal is to get some paperwork in order, both ours and my mom's. I love to organize, it's the getting started I'm having trouble with.

While sitting with my mom in the hospital, I did some scripture reading in the book of John, and read again about the last days of Jesus' life. When I think of all He went through, my struggles don't seem so overwhelming. His faith and strength are carrying me through, especially as I suffer with these infernal allergies.
Honestly, some days I feel like I've been hit by a truck.

Well, enough of that. What with my mom and all, I've had healing on my mind lately. Check out this lovely song.......I heard it for the first time on our local Christian radio station, and it really got me. I don't know this woman's whole story,
but Lisa Bevill wrote and sings this beautiful song.

Until we meet again, I'll be praying the "prayer that never fails," (quoting Father Tim from Mitford), which is "Thy will be done."
Who could ask for more?

I very much like the Scripture at the top of your blog. Words to derive strength from.

I'm glad to hear your Mother is recuperating. It will be nice when things return to normal and you can again do the things you enjoy with your Mom and your Family.

Amy, I will lift you up in prayer. That the Lord minister healing over your household. And yes, that his will be done.

Hang in there Amy! It sounds like you've been very busy. On a bright note - those pb pops look divine -- I'm not surprised at all that they sold so quickly!

There is strength in God's word. Rely on Him.

Oh, Amy, my heart goes out to you. I agree with all of the comments before me. And I know what it is like to suffer with allergies so I will pray for you and your mom.
