What would I do if…..   Leave a comment

What would I do if I suddenly got fired from this job?
That thought comes to me from time to time.
I do wonder.
I know I would have to work but what would I do?

What would I do if, I suddenly lost my husband?
I can’t imagine I would be living a life much different from what I am now, except that I wouldn’t have him to come home to every day.

I do worry about his health and his being so over weight can’t possibly be good on his heart.
But luckily the good Lord hasn’t seen fit to see Rick home to heaven yet.

as I have written before I often wonder if I would have gone down this path or this one……where would I be in my life at this point?

not that I don’t love my life, I do.
I just some times wonder what if????

By the Grace of God   Leave a comment

Last Saturday the entire day was cloudy and very rainy.
So much rain that there was water standing in the streets in places.

Well my children all went to Iowa City to meet their sister for dinner and on the way home, my youngest child Emily was driving 70 on the interstate passing a semi, when she started hydroplaning and heading for a steel median
Her boyfriend grabbed the wheel and pulled to the right and they went sideways in to a ditch, sliding over a hundred feet

everyone was fine, THANK YOU LORD!
But it could have been so much worse.
If they had gone one hundred feet further east they would have crashed into a bunch of trees.
IF they had this accident a mile back from where it was, they would have gone into a ditch that was five to seven hundred feet below the highway.

Or if it hadn’t been raining, but the ditch was still covered in snow and ice, they could have been in serious trouble.

But luckily and by the grace of God, they are fine.
Shook up but fine.
The car is fine too.

I have thanked the Lord several times these last two days for taking care of her and her boyfriend and the baby, and seeing them through what could have been a fatal accident.

I am truly blessed.
Thank you Lord.

Monday Monday   Leave a comment

I’m thinking of that song “Monday Monday, can’t trust that day” By the Mama’s and the Papa’s.
odd but it just popped into my head when I sat down to write a blog.

I usually don’t like Monday’s and I would rather be home than be here, however since the weekend was so good and my daughter survived what could have been a fatal car accident, I have all the blessings in the world right here at my finger tips and I have no reason to complain.

Life is good, I know my Lord loves me and looks after me every day as He carries me in the palm of His hand and all my children are happy and healthy.
Even my eldest child who wants nothing to do with me arrived safely home to Wisconsin last night after seeing her siblings this weekend, so…all is good in my world.
