He's got my whole world in His hands

Loving this video right now. It pretty much sums up everything I really want to say. But, you know I'll ramble on a bit before I go..

So, I'm wanting a new layout. Tired of this one. It was intended to be temporary after I completely toasted the last one on accident. Remember? Well it just sorta kept staying and I kept letting it. I need a new one!!!!!!!!!! I'll do it..really, I will.

Fireworks booth is almost done. I can't complain about it because others have done much, much more work on and with it than I have. But, I will enjoy having one more thing checked off of the "to-do" list for summer.

Camping is coming up rapidly. We sat and figured out a menu for it today. I'm excited. Hoping my back is better by then so I can sleep on the air mattress without having to take my chiropractor with me. Hmm..not a bad idea just in case. haha

Speaking of the ol' most of you know (if we are FB friends), I threw my back out on Tuesday. No bueno. It's all jacked up from my fall in April (The garage incident, remember?). Doc says that it's mostly due to stress and then the kicker was the fall. So, I have to go 3 times a week for awhile. I was like oh my Lord how will we ever pay for that..and honestly was only going to go until I felt better and then not ever go again. Cuz that's just how I am. Cheap. Now, if it were one of my kids I'd take them as long as need be. Yes, I know..I am just as valuable. Got it. Thanks (Swede).

Anyhoo..I was sitting in the office hearing the cost and time frame. Chris sitting next to me. She gives us the numbers, I want to cry. Then she says, "BUT!" And shows me some account HP has for us that pays for stuff! We don't pay into it. They do it for us I guess. I don't really know. We never use the insurance cuz we don't go to the doc. So this was a surprise to me/us. SO, I don't have to pay a penny :) YAY! So then I almost started crying out of joy and thankfulness..but I refrained. Cuz crying hurts right does sneezing, yawning, yelling, laughing, breathing deeply, swallowing, etc. I've tried it all. No likey. Anyhoo..we got in the car and I told Chris I was just so happy and thankful. He said, "Babe, I told you not to worry about it. That it would work out, that it always does. That you just needed to have faith." I said, "Oh I DO have faith, it was just the mustard seed kind." haha

For some reason I have a much easier time trusting and having faith in huge things..but struggle with the little things. I've always been that way. Don't know why. I'll work on it.

Anyhoo..can't sleep. It's almost 2:30. Wide awake. It hurts to sit here. But it hurts to lay down, too. And, it feels nice to sit here and pretend that I'm doing something normal and not something due to being in laying around. Although I have immensely enjoyed the whole laying around thing. :) I said on Facebook today, I prayed for a vacation and it came. Just not exactly in the form I had envisioned. haha Regardless it's a vacation and I am enjoying the simplicity of it. Sit, ice, sit, ice, chiropractor, sit, ice, get the idea. I really, REALLY want to rearrange the furniture downstairs though. Chris moved my recliner upstairs for me and now the downstairs looks even more bare and annoyingly bland than before! Oh well..all in time. I also wanna get our firepit dug out.

Well, I guess I don't have anything else to say. Love you bunches, though. And I'm really liking this scripture, so I'll leave you with it:

Matthew 11:28-30 NLT

Then Jesus said, “Come to me, all of you who are weary and carry heavy burdens, and I will give you rest. Take my yoke upon you. Let me teach you, because I am humble and gentle at heart, and you will find rest for your souls. For my yoke is easy to bear, and the burden I give you is light.”

We'll chat soon..


  1. so pleased that you are 'taking a vacation' - gotta watch what we pray for, huh? Really, though, take it easy, do what you need to do and it will heal every so much better. Yes, it's hard, but you can do it ... even with the 'mustard seed' kinda faith! That's where it all starts anyway, right? Love you

  2. Wow! What a fairy tale ending. Isn't it amazing how things go? So glad that the insurance is helping you so very much. Now you take good care of yourself and take it easy. We want you to ENJOY your camping trip. Love ya!

  3. I hope to enjoy it, too. Not gonna lie, I'm a bit nervous about sleeping on that blow up mattress. But, all will be well. I can sleep in the truck if need be.
