I feel like lately all I've done is ask for prayers.....


Have you ever had one of those months where things just seem to be happening and things coming at you from all sides???
Because that is how I am feeling this month, we've just had one thing after another happen, I'm tired and I'm sick of dealing with it all, I just want some peace and quiet for a bit. It's not that much to ask for is it???


Well the prayers this time are for my husband, he had some blood tests done a week ago and they all came back normal except for his liver function one. I have no idea what exactly it means but I'm scared and I'm worried and I don't want to bother him with it. Please send out a prayer if you can, he has to go back and see the doctor but he's not wanting to either which just frustrates me but makes me even more stressed out. Just keep him in your prayers please, it would mean the world to me to know that I'm getting some extra prayers sent our way.

Before I even go any further I just have to send my condolences and my prayers to the families of the victims of today's horrible shooting at a Virginia Campus. I've been watching it all day long and I'm shocked, I'm saddened and I'm just in total disbelief of what happened....what is going on with this world????

It's very sad to think that any individual could get to a state of mind as to take another human life with no feeling and no thought of his actions. These innocent souls who were in class and had their lives taken so drastically, it breaks my heart, it's absolutely horrid. My thoughts and prayers are with the families, friends and the rest of the campus in Virginia, this has to be so hard for them all.

Alright moving on, I've been trying to catch up on all my house cleaning, it hasn't been easy since I've been sick for the past month and only now trying to get things caught up, I'm slowly getting there though, I never thought I would be so happy doing housework but it means that I'm back to normal and THAT is what matters the most to me.

Tomorrow though I'm going to be baking, if there's one thing you're likely to find in Portuguese homes is these wonderful Portuguese Bread rolls or as we call them in Portuguese "Papo Secos"...I haven't had those in years and I'm craving some. Funny story actually, Curt fell in love with these when he was in South Africa, he just couldn't get enough of these rolls, so when I came to the states I actually brought some over with me LOL

I can't believe I travelled with a dozen bread rolls in my carry on luggage hahahahah
At least I was prepared if I got delayed anywhere waiting for my flight right???

Anyway, I'll be making some tomorrow and I'm giving you the recipe too in case you want to try them, they're soooo good you'll find yourself making them at least once a week.

I wish I had more time to chat but I have dinner dishes to do and then it's bath time for the kids etc.....I'll be back tomorrow hopefully with a post in the morning.

God Bless,
Sandra

I'll send up a prayer for your husband and all of you guys, Sandra!! I know how it feels when things all start piling up on you, but it will get better!! :-)

Prayers are out for your dear hubby. I know things can seem so out of control sometimes especially in the military world but I have faith in you & more than that I know you have faith in God. With that you can make it through anything & you will! Hang in there!
BTW, I love the pictures below! Your hair has gotten so long & I love it!
Take Care my dear friend.

Your Boise zoo post is amazing, Sandra. 27 photos! That's got to be some kind of blogger record. And Courtney's comment made me smile. The first thing I noticed was how long and thick and beautiful your hair is.

About your husband, of course I'll say a prayer for him. Try not to stress too much about this until you have more information. So often these lab results mean nothing - they just scare us half to death.

You've been under a lot of stress lately. My word, you were sick for so long I wondered if you'd ever get over it and now you have this relocation to deal with. It's no wonder you're tired. Try to see the light at the end of the tunnel. Soon all this will be behind you and you and your family will be enjoying Arizona! Arizona, right?

That's a huge change - Idaho to Arizona.

You're all in my prayers.

Sandra, I'm trying to catch up on my blogs. We had a family emergency this weekend so I haven't been around too much and I come here to find I had missed this.

I'm praying for your hubby right now. And for yourself. It's hard to emotionally deal with things when you are tired. Praying for strength for yourself. God is big and He knows everything on your plate right now, Sandra. Give it over to Him, and just do the best you can and He'll give you the strength to do everything you need to get done.
