So I Wasn't As Committed As I Thought I Was!

Ummm, blushing here! I started this month off determined to capture a photo a day, correlated with the list of ideas furnished by Amy at TheIdeaRoom but instead, I got ... oh shall we say,
 
DISTRACTED?? 

I think I will end the month with her prompt - "FALL IS..."
 
So here we go! To me FALL IS...decorating with rich, warm colors
and having friends over for meals!


I have been productive this month and feeling happy about my health and accomplishments. Just last week, I sequestered myself in our church building Monday - Friday, working 10 hour days. Our church homecoming was this Sunday and I wanted to spiffy up our church facilities best as possible. I started with the nursery on that first day and finished up the week by painting bookshelves in our supply room. I warned everyone to stay far away from me that week unless they wanted to be Bleached, Scrubbed with Murphy's Oil Soap, Painted, or Waxed!!! Around 8:30 or 9:00 each night, I'd walk over to my parents home to eat a late supper,
bathe, and sleep. 
 
Being able to work hard physically is a big deal for me! You see, about 6 months ago, I would NOT have been able to help my church in this capacity. My health was so poor and my pain was very intense. I am so thankful for God's guidance to great doctors, new treatments, and new medicines;  but I am most grateful for praying friends and answered prayers!
 
I so enjoyed my week working at church. I still have many things I want to accomplish there in the buildings, but this week I think I should concentrate on my own home! I only saw Shane, Agustin, and my Delilah once during the entire week!!!
