For The Best

Things have been and still are so busy here and I like to thank y'all for your patience, care, concerns and prayers. It is highly appreciated!

April has not been doing well lately. Ligament pains, back pain, several infections, a cold and depression have been doing a number on her lately. She is on medication for all of it and seems to be doing better. We sure hope and pray that will continue. 30 more days to go till Leo shows his little face to this world. :-)

All of the above resulted in either me baby-sitting our little critter several times, taking care of both April and lil' Casey, or going over to Apri,l to help out with her daily tasks, since she has a hard time moving. Yeah, I was trying to keep up two households to the best of my ability, hers and ours. Although I could feel my age acting up, haha. I crashed and had to recharge for a couple of days, but God gave what was needed, when it was needed and still does! :-)

Another thing that has kept me busy and I have managed to squeeze in between all this, is work. Yup, this ol' girl finally got herself a job. God has been providing all we need. It is just nice to have something extra, especially after we have been sustaining April and Ray financially for a while and several house-repairs will have to be done soon. It gives us a little breathing room and sure helps out.

After several enterprises like affiliate programs and my own drawing shop, God blessed me with something I love doing. I write paid posts (advertisement) and I enjoy it immensely. I first used my Scribbles blog, but started a new blog "All Over The Map", solely for this and you are more then welcome to drop in. :-)

We hope all will settle down a bit, although for the next month or so, I don't really see that happening, haha. That's okay. God is good and knows what is needed.

It is better to walk His path and accept His plans, then to force our own. Even though we plan our day, it may not turn out like we had expected, or wanted. In the end however, it turns out to be for the best and to be the best! :-)

Psalm 16:11
You will show me the path of life; In Your presence is fullness of joy; At Your right hand are pleasures forevermore.

Will continue praying for your daughter April, I know she's in good hands. Oh, I can't wait for Leo's coming, I want to see pictures. And I can't wait till he starts blogging too. ;)

Saija,
Thanks for looking at it and for your sweet comments. :-)

I hope y'all are doing well and may God bless you abundantly.

Have a great and very blessed day!

Sarah,
Thank you so much for your prayers! They are appreciated and needed.

Oh dear, I foresee some fights over the computer in the future, haha. I think Oma will take matters in her own hands, grin.

As soon as Leo is born and we have pics, we will post them! I can't wait either. 29 days and counting down. :-D

Have a very blessed day, lil sis.

God's Grace.

Hi Corry,

Wow you been a busy Oma all over the new site ? If you keep writing like that you'll have to take a couple days off when junior arrives . That is a good thing though cause the more curtain climbers you got will make more exciting days for you and Opa !

I was wondering where you been the last few weeks ! I'm glad to hear about all the progress you and Opa are doing and the rest of family to! I tried to comment on the other weblog but didn't understand how to sign in !

Blessings.

hi mamu! i know what you mean by having a little breathing room. i feel the same way when i started doing paid posts. i pray to God that i'll have other opportunities to earn a little more extra bucks. i'm getting less opps these days and my tutoring ended mid january so i need other ways to earn aside from my regular job.

Grandpaw,
Yeah, those little curtain climbers sure keep us busy, haha. We will baby sit our little critter when other little one is born. Lil Casey will prolly stay with us for about 3 days. At least those are the plans for now. :-)

I am sorry, I am aware that you can only leave a comment if you are a weblog user. You would have to create an account to be able to comment. I don't like that and I will drop them a line to see if they can change it. But thank you for looking at it! :-)

Have a very blessed day, Grandpaw!

Pia,
Some tips: get traffic and get links!

I am looking for more links as well, since I already got the traffic. Hint, hint. haha.
I hope this helps, girl.

luvs ya. :-)

Audrey,
Thanks Lieve Zus, those prayers are the best you can ever do! :-)
Don't worry, one day we will meet, but I so appreciate the thought of you wanting to help out. That is so sweet. Thanks :-)

I know you can't comment unless you are a weblog user. I don't like it, but I don't know what to do about it. Maybe send a comment by email? And if you like to link to it, let me know by email as well? I would appreciate it. :-)

Have a very blessed day Lieve Zus!

Angela,
Thanks so much, I really appreciate it!

Blessings to y'all.

Audrey,
Thanks you two! I added both of you. You have twin blogs!!! :-D

Have a very blessed weekend as well, Lieve Zus.

Grandpa,
I am confused. Are you trying to comment on Audrey's blog, but you can't?

I know you can't comment on my new blog, unless you are a weblog user. Nothing much I can do about that. I will drop them a line and maybe they will allow for other users to comment as well.

Have a very blessed weekend!!

God's Grace.

Hi Corry! The Lord put you on my heart today and so I wanted to surf over here to make sure I said hello. Your talent never ceases to amaze me...what a wonderful Creator we have to bestow such gifts upon us. Keep using His gifts! You're such a blessing to me. Forgive me for not being able to make more frequent stops, but I've been struggling to do the most mundane things lately. Will pray for April, and for you, my dear friend.

in His abundant love & mercy,
Vicki

Grandpaw,
Thanks for making it clear to this dense ol' gal, haha.
I will pass it on to Audrey right now:

AUDREY,
GRANDPAW WOULD LIKE TO COMMENT ON YOUR SITE. COULD YOU ALLOW ANONYMOUS COMMENTS?

Thanks! :-D

You both have a very blessed day.

Vicky,
Thank you so much. The prayers are needed and highly appreciated.
I have been meaning to hop over to your blog and never got around to it. I hope to be able to do so soon. You are always such an encouragement to me. :-)

Many blessings to you.

God's Grace.

Hi Corry,

Bless your heart for yelling loud enough for her to hear you !

She already fixed it . Thats how I like to get things done ?

Blessings.
Grandpa.

Grandpaw,
You are most welcome.
My throat is sore from having to yell so loud, but if I didn't she wouldn't have heard me all the way over there, hehe.

I figured she would fix it, she is a sweetheart. :-)
Glad you can comment now.

Have a very blessed day.

God's Grace.
