Lots to do

I can hardly believe this is already the second Monday of the new year. I've lost a lot of cleaning jobs over this last year, about 2 thirds of them. I keep praying that God would send me more cleaning jobs, but I keep losing more. I think maybe God has something else He wants me to do. I'll just keep trusting my Lord, He will never fail me.

We had a great weekend. Lots of friends and family visiting. Good food and fellowship. Today, there's lots I want to get done here at home. I need to exercise, clean, work on budget, cook. I never run out of stuff to do here.

Happy New Year!

Well, it's already 7 days into the new year and I'm posting my first blog of 2010. I'm finally feeling well after over 3 weeks of being sick in December. Went to doctor on December 23 after feeling so bad for too long. Cold, turned into sinusitus, I don't know what else. Got antibiotics. One week later, woke up with a rash, hives. Went back to doc. Got an epinephrine shot and prescription for prednisone. Got worse before I got better. Praise God I'm better.

I've lost a lot of cleaning jobs over the last year. Over two thirds of them. Every time I lose another one, I say to God as Job did, The Lord gives, the Lord takes away, blessed be the name of the Lord. I'm praying for more work and also if God wants me to do something else, I'm praying He makes it clear to me. Maybe He wants me to spend more time painting, or with my grandsons, or teaching the younger women to be good wives and mothers or some other ministry. I don't know. But I do know this. I'm willing. Lord, show me.
