OK, you prayed my foot better, and it is holding up.

Here is another one, a bit more serious.

We are suddenly moving my folks up here to live.
My Dad's dementia is getting very bad,
and my Mom needs out help.

We knew this was coming, but we thought a
year or so down the road.

My sweet fella has just retired, so
We are being hit with two big life changes all at once.

I know God is in control of it all,
just pray i can remember that, and rest in his peace.
Thank you all for being there.

sweet blessings,

barbara jean

Here are some pictures of thistledown for you.
Life can be prickly for awhile,
if you wait, it will soften up and be beautiful again. =0)

God does not give us more than we can handle. It will all work out with prayer. I would only hope I could commit to such an undertaking.
