Good day ladies, life can change in a moment for any of us. Yesterday I was working on an order for a Market bag and I got a call from "Meals On Wheels." I knew the lady on the other end of the phone and she said, "I cannot get your Dad to wake up". My heart sank and the adrenaline started going through my body. We have been caring for my Dad who has emphysema and I know one day he will not be with us, but I don't think you are ever prepared. My Phil and I dropped everything and drove into his place. By that time he was awake. He is on oxygen 24/7. We ended up taking him to the doctor and long story short the ambulance had to take him to the hospital at a bigger town close by. He is doing lots better, but as some of you know who take care of their parents, it is a huge responsibility. You have want to make good decisions for them. When I got home I was a little down. That was because I was so tired and it was late. A lady can do that right? Take a little time out to be sad. I was very grateful though to the Lord. He had given us wisdom in a time that we really needed it.
I decided to see if anyone had signed up for our Cookbook Book Bag Drawing. As I was looking my computer told me someone had just left a message. The email was from Sharon from The Shepherds House (go see her blog, please). She was wanting to order a kleenex holder and tea cozy. She also said at the end of her email,"Sweet blessings to you." Now when you are down that is so precious to hear from someone. I answered her email and she wrote back and said, "May the Lord bless you and give you His wonderful peace." What a blessing!!!! I guess what I am trying to say, is we never know what a little encouragement can do for someone. I soooo want to make a difference in someones life, if they come to read my blog. That is my prayer. I was the one encouraged last night. It was just like God to give his weary servant a blessing of kindness. If anyone today, needs encouraged, know that if you set your mind above He will encourage you always at the right time. He just may use another blogger to do that. Thank you Sharon for being that little bit of sunshine in my life last night!
Please pray for our family as we love "Poppa". It is time consuming and expensive to care for someone in the hospital. It is so worth it though. Pray for divine appointments. We would love to encourage someone at the hospital. He has blessed our family so many times as we have waited on Him to bring someone that needed a love from Jesus.
Please tell your friends about our giveaway. Only one week away!!!!! I am so excited to make the bag up. Design in my brain. How fun is that?
Here is a picture of the main piece of fabric for the Book Bag.

Blessings to you sweet ladies!
