Happy Homemaker Monday - October 4

This is going up a little late today, just got back from the hospital with Jasmine. She had her full arm cast removed, they did X-Rays and the doctor is thrilled with the healing, he says the bone is still where it's supposed to be and there's actual new bone growing already. So guess what????

After 3 weeks of a cast, she doesn't need one anymore, she's now on a wrist splint that she has to wear to school, but can take off at home and to shower etc. So glad.

Thank you YOU all for the prayers and the thoughts, I know that you contributed in a big way to this smooth and fast healing. I'm forever indebted.

The weather cooling down


Tips and Tricks:
I always line my bottom rack in the oven with foil.  It keeps spills from hitting the bottom and creating a big smoky dirty mess.  Makes oven clean up so much easier.

Lesson learned the past few days:

That being a Christian and believing in God, doesn't mean that you will never go through grief, heartache, hard times....it just means that you will but it will be easier and you will learn so much more from those experiences when you have the Lord at your side.


On my mind:
Halloween


Devotionals, Scripture Reading, Key Verses:

This is the message you heard from the beginning: We should love one another.
1 John 3:11
