Yesterday, Mom and I tackled my kitchen cupboards. I truly wish I would have shown you some 'before and afters' - only I would have been shy to show you the befores.... I was shy to show Mom, actually. I needn't have been afraid, as she is a whiz at this sort of thing! She's to me, a Canadian version of those two English ladies who go in and clean homes of people who don't know how (like its REALLY bad) Truly, it was not dirty or anything like this, but I have absolutely no sense of how to organize my food and tupperware cupboards.
In all, we had it whipped together and the house vacuumed before noon!
We had accumulated several bags of 'extras' and unnecessary items which they took to the thrift store with me, and we also visited the local packing house for apples (only .25 cents a pound there!) I'm getting to go all my favorite places WITH my Mom this week! Oh, and we are on our third puzzle and its a stinker. If I'm walking around with a 'puzzled' expression on my face - thats why!

I've a word of encouragement for someone today - it was laid on my heart to share this scripture with you:
Where do you get the strength to go on, when you have used up all of your own strength? Where do you turn for patience when you have run out of patience, when you have been more patient for more years than anyone should be asked to be, and the end is nowhere in sight? I believe that God gives us strength and patience and hope, renewing our spiritual resources when they run dry. - Harold S. Kushner
The limitless resources of God are able to meet our deepest needs.
"And my God will meet all your needs
according to his glorious riches
in Christ Jesus."
