Broken Ribs


It's a beautiful, sunny, Friday morning!

Taking a little break before fixing breakfast to try to build up my blog habit.

Last night I ended up finding some stolen moments to work on a project I've wanted to do for some time, which is begin creating Bible verses to hang up on my walls. The one that I chose to begin with was Exodus 34:6-7. At that point God wanted Moses to truly know what He called Himself.

If it was that important, I think I ought to know it and proclaim it as God did.

It's sometimes referred to as the 13 attributes of God. But actually, God was proclaiming His own name.

So I spent some time with a friend and her computer set up, since all my stuff is in storage, and worked up some templates to transfer onto a 1x10 board. Last night, while waiting for Michael, I listened to some Christian teaching on the radio and copied it twice onto the board, one for us and one for my friend.

It's too small to router, sadly. I'm out of practice on planning out things like this, so instead I borrowed her wood burner. I hope to get that done this weekend. I've got to get my photography habit going again so I can share it. I like pictures and fewer words.

As an aside, I fell a few weeks ago and busted my ribs. Wouldn't you know, it was right on an office cleaning day. That was fun. Not.

I keep re-breaking them, but it's getting less each time. Wish I could lay around while they heal, but instead I will focus on the fact that every new break simply makes them stronger! Doot-do-do-doot--- (Insert Rocky theme here, but for Pete's sake, don't dance.)

OK, I'm off to work. Ask me how I'm going to get in 10 hours of work, a play at the college theater, a martial arts class, and regular stuff all in one day. No, don't ask. I have no idea.

Sumpthins gotta give, sumpthins gotta give, sumpthins gotta give...

Pheonix Rising?

Well, maybe not. I think that's rather pagan.

I will be extremely surprised if anyone catches this post - I confess to having abandoned my posts for a year now.


In this year, the changes have been great. Not great, as in swell, but great as in massive!

It took 4 years, but I am now officially single. My attorney said he'd never seen a case like mine and probably never would again. It took a very long time and there were a whole lot of crazy things that happened, but it was finally finished in March of this year. Whew!

Our beloved home and farm are gone. We are moving from one house sitting job to another. What a challenge!

I work a lot to provide for Michael and I, so our lifestyle has been altered considerably. Michael works a lot as well.

But I have learned a lot of things and am grateful for the chance to continue learning and seeing what God will be doing in our lives.

I have no photos at this time and I'm having a tough time with figuring out how to get things done when we don't quite know where any of our stuff is, or when we'll be in one place to the next, so I've not taken many photos lately.

But we are in a sweet little old house right now on 9 acres. I will write more about the challenges of this little spot, as well as the wonderful things about it later.

Michael is now almost 5 foot 11! LOL What a man he is, and such a blessing to me. He turned 16 a couple of weeks ago and is preparing to go get his license. I am looking forward to being able to sit in the passenger seat and do tasks during his driving time to and from town, which takes about 20 minutes each way.

I will see if I can get moving on the blog. I have so much to do, so much I am considering and praying about and need to focus on. It will be good to be able to share it with others, for encouragement, as well as for feedback.

Is anybody out there? LOL

Off to gel the dashing young man's hair before we are off to town for his "man class" and I find something with which to occupy myself.

Still listening to birdsong and smiling because of it,
