Fun and Busy Days!
Yesterday was one of those perfect days for going visiting, which we did! We drove a couple hours north to visit my MIL, SIL and her family. It was in the 30's, sun shining, just absolutely beautiful! Clear blue skies and when we drove home the night sky was gorgeous with the stars so bright.
Our plan was just to visit all day, but sometimes our plans get changed. First off, Isaac had one of his "I'm awake and you can't get me to sleep" spells, and was up until after 3am. This resulted in us sleeping in a bit, so we were a little later leaving than we had first planned. That was okay, as the day's schedule was flexible.
Then, while Dale was still asleep and I was having coffee and guiding (aka, pushing shoving threatening bargaining cajoling ) my children in their chores I really felt led by the Lord to call a friend that lives not too far from my MIL. She had been sewing like crazy all week to finish some costumes she is making for her and her children. They are going to Williamsburg next week for a retreat, and was really under the gun to get them finished. I called her and offered my help for the afternoon. It was so much fun! I got to visit with her for a while, and of course LOTS of sewing was going on. I especially liked it because... um, well, I just like to sew. LOL.
I did spend some time with the in laws after that, but it was the right thing to do. Have you ever had one of those times when you just knew the Lord wanted you to do something that wasn't "in the plans" so to speak? It is always a blessing to listen to His guidance, and do what He says, even if it interrupts our little plans. My friend was greatly appreciative of my efforts, but honestly, I received as much blessing, if not more, from the "doing" of it.
Speaking of sewing, I need to get back to work! Hopefully I will be able to post pictured by Tuesday.
