As I was checking out my hit counter I noticed my Christmas countdown. Only 170 days left until Christmas!

Being without income we didn't do gifts last Christmas; I made pajamas for everyone though. We had a lot of fun even without presents! Maybe I'll skip the Christmas shopping this year too! At least it will be a choice and not because I have to.

It's Been So Long...

It's been a very long time since I've posted here, and I don't really know why I haven't written. So, here I am. I guess I left off with the great plumbing leak of '09, that was all resolved.

The big exciting news today is that my dear hubby's first paycheck in over NINE MONTHS just went into the bank tonight. I did not think it would be a big deal but it was an emotional moment for me to see that deposit in the account history. I can't believe I sat in front of my computer monitor and CRIED! Silly me.

I am grateful for the grace of God who gave us peace through this scary time. We learned we can say "if the Lord intends for us to lose everything, so be it" and we can really mean it.

That's all I'm going to say for tonight, it's way past time for sleep!
