Praise !

Know ye not that ye are the temple of God, and that the Spirit of God dwelleth in you? I Corinthians 3:16
Psalm 31: 7, 8
I will be glad and rejoice in thy mercy; for thou hast considered my trouble; thou hast known my soul in adversities;
And hast not shut me up into the hand of the enemy; thou hast set my feet in a large room.

Spring has finally arrived !

Yes, I know that it comes on the same day every year, but the weather this past Winter made it seem extremely long !
Whatever the case, hallelujah, God is on the throne, and the seasons continue.

The first day of Spring was beautiful here, with a temperature in the high 60's, and lots of sunshine.  I had been awaiting this day to baste a quilt, but that didn't happen.

After not sleeping well for the last 3 nights, and it being especially bad last night, I awakened with a slight pain in my chest when I coughed, and a feeling of no energy at all.

Knowing that I had freshly-purchased ground beef in the fridge that needed to be used, I made myself go right to work in the kitchen.  I made up a huge pot of many-vegetables soup (my go-to lunch when I want to spend time piecing/quilting), and a big pan of beef enchiladas (these have become a favorite of hubby's).  During all of the prep work and cooking, I barely felt like standing up straight.

As soon as everything was done or simmering, I grabbed my Bible for some study, and prayed to the Father to rebuke the devourer for His name's sake ---  to please take this affliction from me, which was causing me to be short-tempered with dear hubby.

Well, it wasn't probably 15 minutes before the funk lifted off of me, and I felt just fine.  Praise be to God, my Healer !

 I spied my trash barrel full of leaves that I had been waiting to burn on a wind-still day.  So, I started in on them, not realizing that it meant that I had given up the entire afternoon to 'fire control' !   The wind came up just a bit, and I dared not leave the barrel alone, so I just set out to rake up, stir, and burn all I could gather around the garden spot.  As night fell, I took the water hose and sprayed down the last of the smoldering leaves in the bottom of the barrel.

But, blessedly, I heard on tonight's weather report that we are supposed to have an even nicer day tomorrow.  So, hopefully atleast one quilt top will get basted.  My neighbor reminded me that I not only have the back porch where I can baste, but also my carport as well !    Can't believe I never thought of that !
