Yesterday was the perfect day for yard work.  That is what my family did all day long.  From the time they got home from camping and got everything unpacked, they cleaned up the yard.  We have a couple huge trees in our backyard, and in recent storms, some branches have fallen.  After they picked up all the sticks and debris (we have four boys), they edged, raked and Drew cut the grass twice.  (It was that high.)  Graham did the front yard.

They also cleaned up the deck that is attached to the back of our house.  It is so nice, looking out to see a nice, clean and cut backyard!  While they did their outside stuff, I puttered around inside and got the rest of my kitchen and pantry cleaned out and organized.

I found a couple images on the internet that I loved, and I thought I would share them with you.

I especially love this because it reminds me of the saying, "God is good, all the time.  All the time, God is good."

I am a firm believer in thinking/speaking/believing truth and life and always being positive.  Nobody ever gripes about a positive Patty.  (Think Debby Downer.)  When you give God glory, honor and praise for all He is, and all He has done, it's impossible to continue in a negative thought pattern.  He has been infinitely good to us!

I'm preaching to myself with this one.  If God cares for the birds of the air as much as He does, how much more does He care for you?  For me?  Read Matthew chapter six.

My family just left for church.  I'm staying home because I'm trying to get stuff done before this afternoon, when my fun day comes crashing to a halt.  Don't you just love surgery prep?!  I have tons of washing to do before then, so I thought I could get it all done while they're at church.

Speaking of surgery tomorrow, this is happening right now.

On the long list of things not to be consumed today, non-dairy creamer is one of them.  I usually put two tablespoons of sugar in my coffee and a tablespoon of cream, but not today!  It actually tastes really good.

Well.  I better get off here if I plan on tackling that list.  I probably won't write again for a is at 7:30 in the morning, and I have to be there at 5:30.  I covet your prayers.  Thanks!  Love to all.
