DID I EVER TELL YOU . . .
I bet you thought I was going to give you the name of another collection. Got ya! What I was going to say was that I am handicapped. No, not in the brain, I don't think! I use to work at a church for a little bit, well, 25 years to be exact! I ended my career there, as the school principal and church administrator.
I really loved my job, the people especially. Oh, the children were the icing on the cake. One day we had a fire, and I could not find the custodian. Remembering I had sent him to the attic, I went up to look for him. The lights had gone off and to make a long story short. I fell, into the attic stairs. After that fall, because of weakness in the knees, I fell 3 more times. Needless to say, after 2 surgeries, I am still very weak in the legs, and shoulder and wrists and and and. I am usually, just fine in the summer months. Come the cold damp months, not so good. I said all that to say, my ministries came to an end.
I started to blog to find others with the same passions as myself. I wanted to share with you about my collections and my family. For a long time I talked to just one friend, Nancy. Since then, I met you!
I am privileged to have you as my friends. That you trust me enough to share your burdens with me. It is a pleasure to pray for you as need. Although I still want my blog to remain the same. I want you to know, I will stop it any time to request prayer for you. I believe God has called us to bare another's burdens.
With that off my chest, I want to let you know that Noah has picked a winner! He promises, he didn't peak! The winner is Rebecca at http://rebecca-gatheryeroses.blogspot.com/. If you have never visited her site, you must. She is wonderful. Anyway, Rebecca you need to let me know your address, you have a book and bling coming your way!
Thank you for celebrating my 100th with me! As always, you have been a blessing.
