Sunday before Retreat

Good evening! I am Exhausted! Have any of you ever wondered, "How did I get myself into this?" And..."God, what exactly IS the lesson I am supposed to learn from all of this?" I am expecting him to show us in a big way. We have literally re-created Padan Aram (the place where Rachel and Leah were from) in the book of Genesis. You should see our living room! On the wall painted in chalk on two sheets, is an ancient stone building with a camel!!! LOL. There are sheep in our Den, palm trees on our pation and in the living room, and hundreds of yards of muslin for the tents we are constructing. The fun part is that we have to haul all this up to Sonora (about a 3 hour drive) so we can set it all up. The blessing is knowing that there will be many women that will have a wonderful encounter with the Lord. And I will have been a part of that. That is so cool!

On another note, we celebrated birthdays for our niece (Angie) who is 24, and our nephew (Justin) who is 29 and their father (Jerry) who is.....older than me...LOL! I cannot believe how old they are! OMG! I feel so old....We are noticing that it is becoming harder and harder to take our mom places. She gets real spacey and then belligerent when we try to get her to do anything. PLease pray that God gives us the strength and wisdom to deal with her at this stage. It is a struggle!

I wanted to mention that Lollishops will be opening before the holidays so be sure and check it out. I will post more info on it later in the week. I am gearing up for Christmas on my website and will be listing some new items and return items. SO please, check my website or here for announcements.

I will leave you with this ... "Be beautiful inside, in your hearts, with the lasting charm of a gentle and quiet spirit whic is precious to God." 1 Peter 3:4

Good night and God Bless you! Becs
