Happy Homemaker Monday ~ September 17, 2018


As I write ...   Sunday evening

The weather.... Beautiful compared to the Carolinas. 


Right now I am... just finished eating a very late supper. I was talking with a friend on the phone long-distance when supper time came.

Thinking... I need to sort a few fabrics tonight. I'm not going to sew, but sorting fabrics is part of the process. I have in mind to make a handbag this week, but I need to see if I have fabrics that I want to use. If not, the project will go on the back burner for awhile.

A quote to share...

My prayer for you, my dear reader...

Dear Jesus,
It seems like everyone has something she is worrying about these days. You told us not to worry but to trust you. Father help us to look to you for our every need.
Father, I ask that whatever that need is—provision for a bill, for food, for education or whatever—healing for herself or a loved one—relief from pain, or fear, or anxiety—reconciliation with a loved one or between family members—salvation for someone they care about—I ask you to meet her needs. Holy Spirit, please wrap your loving arms around each reader. Speak truth to them. Bring salvation, bring peace, bring faith, bring hope. Thank you so much for your provision of salvation and everything we need. I bless your Holy Name Jesus! Amen.


Your kindness to me in writing back really encourages me. Thank you so much for taking the extra time to comment.

Laura
Trusting in God's timing, provision, and healing power

  1. I got Fervent for Christmas and still haven't picked it up! I desperately need too! I'm with you in those prayers, everyone is so anxious and busy, I wish everything would slow down and refocus! Thank you for the prayers for the Carolinas, my little hometown has some major flooding but was spared the brunt of the storm (we are near the outer banks!) but we know a lot of people in the storms path. Your hair looks beautiful and have an amazing coffee shop day! Those days are the best days :) Happy Monday!

    1. Hi Stacy,
      There's no time like the present to pray! How are you doing? I don't have television, so I don't get much news about the hurricanes.
      Blessings,

    1. Hi Shellie!
      Thanks for talking back and for the prayers. I'm so glad you've still got your mama. I haven't taken any photos of what I've done so far. I need to see if I can borrow my husband's phone or my daughter's camera.
      Blessings,
      Laura

  4. What a wonderful picture! Enjoyed reading your post today. Hoping to maybe get to some fall decorating around here as well. Of course, I think I'll make that a Friday thing. Hard to feel motivated for fall in 90 degree weather. Hope you have a great week!

    1. Hi Jean,
      Thanks! My hair's a bit longer now. That was a few weeks ago. I've been taking my grown son to dr appts this week. He's doing better, but still sick. I haven't done as much as I'd like. It is hard when it's in the '90's!
      Enjoy today!

    1. Aren't you a sweetheart Kellylynn! I'm so happy to have some hair again. I had a bad hair day a few days ago and put on a cap. Oddly, I felt more comfortable that way. I think it's because I wore one for over a year.
      Blessings,

  10. A beautiful picture of contentment, which made me smile. Always a joy to see someones list as long as mine, I often wonder since taking early retirement how I ever had time to go to work.

    1. I found the group in January. It's been a great distraction.
      I cast on the sweater on Tuesday evening. It's a bit slow going as I learn the new stitch pattern, but I think it will speed up soon.
      Hugs,

  12. You look wonderful in your photo ; your hair is growing back in gorgeously! I can't imagine your insurance company telling you no on the reconstructive surgery. Praying for a speedy answer for you!

    1. Hi Penny,
      Thanks. I feel like my hair is a bit thin, but I'm thankful to see new growth even since the photo a few weeks ago.
      My surgeon's appointment was Sept. 5. I'd been waiting for months to find out when I'd have surgery. Of course we couldn't set a date. I hope it's not going to ruin October for me. It's my favorite month.
      Blessings,
      Laura

  13. Enjoyed reading your post, Laura! I'm working on my fall bucket list, too (am actually trying to narrow it down to a manageable size!). Did you come up with the fabrics that you needed to make the handbag that you've got in mind? Blessings for a beautiful week ahead, my friend! You and your family are always in our hearts and in our prayers! Love you! <3

    1. My bucket list is completely unmanageable, but I did cut out some things because of surgery. Wed Oct 10 at 7:30 a.m. outpatient. Fun fun!

  15. I love the picture. You look wonderful! So good to hear how you are doing and what you are up to. I hope to do some sewing soon. Things tend to quiet down when the cold season comes along. It is easier to sew in fall and in winter months.

    1. Dear Mrs. White,
      Thank you! I am feeling so much better. My hair has grown enough that I now have bad hair days! I am beginning to feel like doing more around the house, too. I've neglected things for the last year. It's going to take awhile to get things in shape, but I'll just keep at it.
      Be blessed dear friend,
      Laura Lane
