Days 217-241: August in Summary

Okay, so I've already posted a disclaimer for this month as just being difficult with a broken computer and all. It really is obnoxious sitting here on this netbook, and typing typos very frequently; but what is a girl to do? Tomorrow the desktop will be taken in (I think), and I hope there will be some reasonably priced solution.

With that in mind, I just feel like I need to- despite wrist cramps- get back to this endeavor of giving God glory for his daily work in my life, and in the life of my family.

August was a month that could be summarized by continued sustenance. God has watched over us at every turn, and has lifted up my spirit in every moment.

My mom has had an interesting month, with the discovery of a mass on her uterus. It was the size of her uterus, and had to be removed. But the mass was benign. And she's on her way to recovery. Praise the Lord!

My summer of organization and purging has moved forward with great gusto. My shed is done. It is beautiful- for a shed. The computer was successfully moved into the kitchen area complete with a desk assembled all by myself. My husband's books are all in our home, and the area is almost done. There are two things left to do: a lamp, and a wall hanging. I also moved out children into the same bedroom. And although it's an adjustment for them, I think it will be a great experience for them.

What I want to accomplish with all these tasks is to have a home that simply reflects what I want to be in my heart. I want our home to be peaceful, well thought out, beautiful, welcoming, and a place that is comfortable. I want God to be honored in how I have tried to do all these things. I hope that he is. It's out of a heart to be a good wife, mother and steward that I do it. It hasn't been easy, but I have enjoyed the journey and relish each victory and accomplishment.

I guess that's August. The Lord brought me through, like he always does. I am grateful for that.
