Mama Rose

My brother~n~law, James, made this amazing video of an amazing woman! He captured her perfectly! Make sure your sound is on and grab a box of Kleenex! There was not a dry eye when we saw it for the first time last night! Thanks so much for all of your prayers, thoughts and encouraging words! God bless!

Life is soooooo PEACHY!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!


Lisa, this post is for you. I accidently deleted "after" pic from below. Why should anything go right today?
Isn't it "peachy"???


Well, the secret is out! We are moving...right down the street!
This is a home that one of my dear friends grew up in. Both of her parents have died in the past few years and the time had come for them to sell it.
I wasn't looking to move anywhere, but the Lord opened doors and we have been blessed!
This home was owned by one loving family...lots of lovin going on here!
The home has been empty for awhile and needs lots of lovin itself!
Did I mention that it has NEVER been updated???? Did I mention we have LOTS of work to do???? and I mean LOTS????
This is the drive that goes to the shop~"MAN CAVE"!!!

My boys working hard!!!! ha...they REALLY wanted their pic taken!!!
The HUGE garden and another view of the "MAN CAVE"!!!
Too bad the gardener doesn't come with the sell of the house.
You can't really tell, but this garden is HUGE!
He is in the middle of planting.
Our green house and workshop!
I can NOT wait to get some grass growing!!!
View from our back door!
I can NOT wait to have my flag flyin on that flagpole!!!'s day 2 of renovations! Yesterday was great, but today has been a day from
H_ _ L!! In the middle of my Mom~N~Law being sick, we have had to make huge decisions. I had to go to Home Depot by myself and start purchasing paint. I was soooooo overwhelmed!!! I just wanted a nice neutral color for the back of the house. Don't get my wrong....this girl loves COLOR, but with time and circumstances....I was going to add accent walls as we go. I bought 5 gallons of paint. (First mistake) It's called porcelain skin. Well, yesterday a friend said it's nice, but it looks peach and my husband agreed. I ignored them both and kept painting. (Second mistake.) Today, a dear sweet friend comes by....stands there....and says, "It's peach". Her husband comes in....she kindly asks, "What color is that to you?"....."It's peach."
I'm now crying peach tears. I have carpal tunnel and I feel like I've done 5,000 squats!
I need some peach schnapps and my sister! My sister is brilliant at this b/c she's moved 3 million times and has had lots of practice!
Lisa, I miss you....I need you!!! Won't you please come stay the next 6 wks. with me????
Stay tuned.....I'm SURE this is gonna be FUN!!!!!!!

There are no words....just tears as I post this tonight!
Please pray for Katelyn and her sweet family!
You can also throw in a prayer in for my Mom~N~Law.
Hospice is the next step and her future is uncertain.
Lots of decisions need to be made and it's just HARD!!

Happy Birthday America!!!

If my people who are called by my name humble themselves, and pray and seek my face and turn from their wicked ways, then I will hear from heaven and will forgive their sin and heal their land.
