This card is for my sil. Her surgery is today.

Finally, there's light...
Today is the first day of school. All three were early this morning. Whew. Remember, the last time I blogged, I decided that Monday was going to be a better day? Well, it didn't start off that way. I found out that there would be yet another delay in both the Driver's license and phone company/electrician sagas. I was so frustrated, because I wanted the kids to get the school year off to a good start. Have you ever been so down that it is even hard to read your Bible or pray?? That's where I was Monday morning. I sat down at my computer playing a game to distract me and to help me think. I think this when I had my second breakdown (yes, I am human). As I sat at the computer, my daughter brought me the mail. There was a very encouraging card in the mail from a sister in Christ (Thanks, Trish). Somehow that reminder that there were others out there praying for me gave me just the amount of strength I needed. I decided to just go to the county school board and convince (beg) them to register them w/o the tag receipt. The lady at check in said nonchalantly,"Oh they give you 30 days to get that". (Argh) I didn't know whether to be happy, or go and hunt down the girl that caused all this stress by telling me I would not be able to register w/o the tag receipt. I decided to wait and save the hunt for another day. I waited over three hours for my turn, but all went well.
I ran into a friend because of all this. We used to be in the same Sunday school class years ago in another town in GA. She was one of the workers who was pulled out of her office to help with registration because of the volume of folks waiting to register their kids. I may not have run into her if I had been there on that day.

Well, my time is up for the day. There is so much to tell... Thanks for the comments and emails.

Praise the Lord things are starting to move in the right direction. Praying things will all be back to normal(?)
Blessings, Louise

So glad the kids made it to school, sorry that Monday was so trying, but am happy for you that you ran into a friend and also had the strength and patience to keep pushing to find resolution. I can so relate to your story of one person's misinformation causing endless headaches and hours of extra work and stress! It is not fun. Love the card, BTW, have missed your cards and purple. :)
Best wishes the remainder of this week...

So glad to see you back blogging. I've missed your beautiful cards. :) This one is no exception and I don't see a single bit of the stress and frustration that you've been experiencing lately in it! It's gorgeous!

Love the card. So glad you posted. I check everyday. I know what you mean about meeting and old friend. Adversity has brought friends back into my family's life after fifty some years. You are in my prayers. You reminded me I must get back to a book I am reading about the healing of psalms.

So glad to hear that some forward progress is being made. And glad that my card arrived at *just* the right time. We serve an amazing God!

Continuing to pray for you and your sister.

Whew! Sure am glad a move to GA is not in my plans...if it ain't one thing, it's another!!

Hopefully the end of the saga is near. It's been a long one.

Prayers and good thoughts coming your way.
