Tips and Tricks:
Mix the yolk of an egg with a little warm water..rub on the stain with a sponge. For stains that have been set in, add a few drops of alcohol to the egg and water. Nice, simple and safe way to remove stains. Doesn't cost a bundle, either!

Lesson learned the past few days:

Every day is a learning lesson for me as a Christian woman, but the recurring theme and one which usually needs to be thumped over my head repeatedly, is that things are done in HIS time, not in mine and not because I think I am entitled to it at the moment.  We're going through another one of those trials right now, we may be going back to Idaho sooner than we think, it won't exactly be under the circumstances we wished but nonetheless if it happens, it's because He thinks it's the right time and for that, I have to be thankful and understanding and not question Him.

On my mind:

Devotionals, Scripture Reading, Key Verses:
Trust in him at all times, O people; pour out your hearts to him, for God is our refuge.
Psalm 62:8 (NIV)
