College Dormitories, Garage Sales, and 90th Birthdays



The past two weeks have been extremely hectic. My husband and I moved our middle daughter into her college dormitory and have been trying to help her adjust to college life. She's been a bit overwhelmed with the change and is extremely homesick, so if you feel led, please cast up a prayer for her. 


 Then last weekend, my daughters and I held a garage sale--something we haven't done for several years. We decluttered our house and had a good sale, so it was worth the time and effort, but it did leave me in need of some rest...especially since I've been experiencing sciatic back pain again. If you remember, I had a similar incident last year at this time. I'm happy to report that this one hasn't been as bad or as long-lasting. I'm feeling better, but I'm glad to have a few days rest ahead of me.


That rest is short-lived, however, as this upcoming weekend my family and I will celebrate my grandma's 90th birthday. We're expecting relatives in from all across the country, (including our oldest daughter and son-in-law) so we are very excited about the reunion.

"Then I realized that it is good and proper for a man to eat and drink, and to find satisfaction in his toilsome labor under the sun during the few days of life God has given him--for this is his lot." Eccl. 5:18

All in all, life is good. How are you planning to spend your Labor Day Weekend?
