Loving the Lord, Serving Him Wherever He Plants Us!

Just Thinkin’

Just thinkin’ and not really thinkin’ of anything in particular.

We had a good weekend.  Saturday, friends Don & Mike took us along with Hank & Euona out for lunch to Rocky’s in Devine.  When we first pulled up we thought maybe they were closed as the OPEN sign was not on. Hank got out of the van and went to see if they were open.  The door opened and after about 10 seconds motioned for us to all come inside.  And so we did.  We had a great time and the food was delicious.  Ron and I had shrimp fettuccine, Don & Mike had chicken parmesan w/spaghetti, Hank had Tuscan chicken and Euona had a hamburger with onion rings & fries.  We laughed and talked for over two hours.

After we returned home we had to make a trip to Wal-Mart to see if we could get Ron’s glasses repaired.  They fell out of the case when he was getting into the Jeep on Friday.  The glasses could not be repaired but we were able to get another pair of frames that his lenses fit in, and all for only $9.

Back home I did the never ending job of laundry.  Four loads!  How can two people generate so much laundry in two weeks??  In the evening we watched some TV and did some cleaning in the motor home.  That leads me to the next question…where does all the dust come from?  It seems like I sweep every day and there is still dust everywhere!

Sunday morning we slept late…I was thinking when I got up that I was fighting some type of bug ~ I just didn’t feel like my perky fun self.  In the cleaning up of our rig I found our coupons for Costco and realized that yesterday was the last day of the coupons.   So off to Costco and San Antonio.  That trip took us over 4 hours!  But we don’t need any groceries for quite awhile.  Whew!! Going to Costco is not my favorite thing to do but one of those necessary things we have to do.

In the evening we did some reading and watched a couple of Dateline episodes and then off to bed.

This morning I woke up feeling a little under the weather but readied myself for work.  The morning was busy with getting things ready for the CPA and catching up the mail from the weekend.  At lunch time I found myself taking a short nap.  After lunch my tummy started acting up and I kept getting cold chills.  Decided I needed to stay home this evening instead of going out with the gals from the park.  I took another two hour nap!!  

I woke up thinkin I wanted to write but couldn’t think of anything to write about so this post is what you get 🙂

I do hope y’all have a great week.

  1. So glad to hear you have some relief from your headache. If you are running any kind of fever you might want to consider stopping by a medical care facility. Otherwise drink lots of fluids. I did not realize you are actually in WA. Lost track of you I guess…thought you were more northeast than that. No matter…there is a reason I'm sure that you are where you are. Like you say….Ephesians 6:10-18 – be strong in our faith in the Lord; put on his armor. It is He who gives us the strength to face each day, each trial or circumstance we find ourselves in. Til next time..peace be with you…

  2. Hi Ali, I love your new blog!!!!! I also have a \”new\” one, I'm still learning about what can happen with wordpress theme files! LOL. Now I've set up a test application to test EVERYTHING before I do it on my blogs. Well, have a fantastic weekend!

  3. Finding joy in every situation? Now I had not thought of that until I just read where you wrote that. Maybe you think everyone knows that already, but I am here to tell you, and find great joy in doing so, that I did not know that! So thank you Alice! I will try to start looking at things that way. How can I find JOY in this situation! It is like finding the Lord! He is truly in the midst of the tribulation that we find ourselves in at times. Places we cannot seem to figure out how we got here and how to get out. Maybe that is not the goal after all. The goal instead is to BE right where we are, and to find Joy! This is a very new way of looking at life. It changes everything.

  4. Alice, what a heartfelt post tonight. I don't know why you have had to go through such ups and downs, but I do know that you and Ron are good witnesses to the Lord's care and concern for us. It's not always or even usually what we expect, but we can trust Him to work things out according to His plans for us. Suffering seems to be part of His plan, but so does joy.

  5. Isn't it wonderful to know that the Lord is always with us in these times of stress? Two things that always come to mind when things are tough are, my favorite hymn, \”Great is Thy Faithfulness\” and one of my favorite scriptures, Jer.29:11. Will be anxious to read of your further adventures in Texas.

  6. How exciting for you that you'll be office & property managers, that really sounds wonderful and something that it seems would suit the two of you!
