Can I say that the “taking a break” turned into a July from Hell. Without going into a whole lot of boring details, I was hospitalized twice last month for 4-5 days each time. I give all the glory to our Lord and Savior Jesus for my now being home and recovering. The gash on my head that required 5 staples is healing nicely and I’m regaining some strength.
Okay, I know you’re just dying to know how I split my head open. In a simple explanation, my Blood Pressure took a major nose dive and I blacked out slamming my head into a solid wooden wall. (I’m sure glad I didn’t feel it!) That’s what landed me in the back of an ambulance and from there things just took on a mind of their own, so to speak. Being released from one hospital didn’t do the trick so a week later I was admitted to another hospital. My 2 insurance cards and Drivers License that were stolen at the first hospital still haven’t been found. But the Lord has His hand on me and I’m healing.
Obviously I haven’t been able to keep up with all that has taken place at the ministry house. I did manage to go by to stake up the Rose of Sharon I had planted. Isn’t it funny how something other than what is going on will just bug the tar out of you? Through all the hospital, Dr’s, etc. I kept thinking how I needed to stake the Rose of Sharon because the last storm we had, had it all bent over and I want it to grow straight and tall.
I managed to do that and I noticed when I pulled into the driveway the house had been painted. I was against painting over the bricks but it happened anyway. Its a dark gray and does look nice. The front door has been painted a blue and I noticed that before the gray. It almost slaps you in the face. 🙂
I wish I had taken my camera but I did get the Rose of Sharon staked up and it looks so pretty! It has 4-5 large purple flowers on it and really stands out against the gray background and I’m thrilled about that. I pulled a few weeds that popped up and then went inside.
One of the men from church was changing some of the light fixtures, the new sofa looks fantastic in the living room and is very comfortable. (I know because I rested on it for a few minutes) and there’s 2 beds set up in one bedroom. (same “Psych. beds”) It’s my understanding that Pastor has now decided to have 5 women; 2 in 2 of the bedrooms and one in the master bedroom.
Other than that I didn’t notice any major changes inside. I don’t know if windows have been repaired yet, it didn’t look like it, or if the attic has been insulated. Two major repairs that were yet to be done.
One other thing I forgot to mention (back tract) is that the carport has been cleared out on the most part of the saw horses that were piled with wood and edging and a lot of junk removed. The old plywood panels that were nailed up to close in one side of the carport have been removed. Wow, what a difference and with the new paint it looks great!
I didn’t stay very long since I had just gotten out of the hospital the day before. I just HAD to stake that Rose of Sharon or go nuts thinking about it, but the energy level was dropping fast and I still had to drive home.
I’m not sure how often I will be able to do any updates due to recovering and my own plate that seems to be running over right now. The ministry home is still being renovated and hopes are high that inside will be completed soon and outside can be started. The old shed needs to come down, a couple of trees taken out, and a back yard cleaned up.
But for now the Lord is still blessing us.
Until next time, blessings to you.
