Hello everyone... Just a little post today..
Some ladies and I went to a Retreat this past weekend ... It was wonderful and we came away with a sense of restoration... The speakers and singers were very anointed and God really touched our hearts.. We were blessed and made new commitments to put God first in our lives..
We had two rooms among over 400 ladies and there was a connecting door... So much fun and great fellowship... Thank you, Lord... but...... this old lady is SO tired...
I don't think anyone in our room slept very much but that is OK as it is only once a year....
I have not accomplished a lot today but I came across this little poem that our daughter memorized when she was only in grade 2..
I can remember waiting for the bus and we would be going over it..
So sweet... I must ask her if she can still recite it..
Spring time is here and I need to do some cleaning so this poem always comes to my mind..
A SHINY LITTLE HOUSE...
I wish, how I wish, that I had a little house
With a mat for the cat and a hole for a mouse,
And a clock going "tock" in a corner of the room
And a kettle, and a cupboard, and a big birch broom.
To school in the morning the children off would run,
And I'd give them a kiss and a penny and a bun.
But directly they had gone from this little house of mine,
I'd clasp my hands and snatch a cloth, and shine, shine, shine.
I'd shine all the knives, all the windows and the floors,
All the grates, all the plates, all the handles on the doors,
\Every fork, every spoon, every lid, and every tin,
Till everything was shining like a new bright pin
At night, by the fire, when the children were in bed,
I'd sit and I'd knit, with a cap upon my head,
And the kettles, and the saucepans they would shine, shine, shine,
In this tweeny little, cosy little house of mine!

There is no place like home...
whether it be a cosy little house or a mansion on a hill.
Home is Sweet..
Shonda was also at the Retreat and it was so nice to see our sweet daughter there worshiping the Lord.
God is so good and so faithful..
I will be back soon, Lord willing.
May God be with you all..
