It’s 2:46………am

I’ve been awake for about an hour. Not sure why. 

Sometimes sleep comes easy and sometimes……not so much.

What do you do in the middle of the night when you can’t sleep?


Watch TV?

Daydream? Wait……nightdream?

Sometimes all of the above, tonight I write. It sometimes allows for the sleep to come sooner.

October is over today. 

Tonight we will sit on the front porch with our giant bowl of candy greeting the princesses and the pirates and all the little kid characters I will need to learn having a little kid in the house. Right now I’m fluent in Sesame Street and Paw Patrol. 

Yesterday was 3G at Church of Hope. It was the 10th anniversary of 3G!

Gather – we gather at COH, have communion together and pray as we prepare for the day 

Go – we go into our community and partner with our mission partners and others as we serve and provide services they might not be able to get otherwise 

Give – we give of our time and our resources to our community. 

What a day! 

Steve and I served at Lake Weir High School. 

He helped paint in the Vocational  area and I stenciled words on the overhead columns in the patio.

What better way to serve than with your best girl friend. 

It took two people to place the stencil correctly and we only had one ladder 

Make it work people 

Adam was a student at LWHS and was a staff Sargeant in the ROTC. He was also a fabulous paint holder. He saved me exactly 7999 steps and 569 trips up and down the ladder 

It was a great day!

This month has had challenges

Did you know that if you leave little tiny nails in your pocket and then wash your shorts that the little tiny nails will get into the part of your washer that won’t allow your washer to spin?

It’s not pretty and said person who put the little tiny nails in her pocket won’t do that again 

This car never returned home.

This car replaced her. 

And we added this truck 

My wallet……..ouch.

Dad and I have been busy! 

I’ve been mourning a little this month as one of my bests has had to  leave the area for a while and the other is leaving soon for a job. 

Dear God,

You know what’s going on with the friends. Can you fill the void with something else for a while? 



Prayers don’t have to complicated right? 

People needing projects done, comes out of nowhere. More than we can even handle.

Thanks God. 

It’s fun to have new projects 

It’s fun when Dad is well enough to be in the garage with me

It fun making something out of nothing 

I can’t wait to share our newest creation. It will be done this week and delivered to it’s new home soon.

With all of this months news, I’m grateful that a lot of times, it’s just time spent. 
We drive to Georgia to pick up the truck and sometimes you just need to nap 

I’ve visited places this month that I never in a million years thought I would visit. Life happens and it’s important to not get to comfortable. You never know.

I’ll leave you with Jack and I taking a selfie at the pumpkin patch. 

Just making memories 


I’m going to try and sleep. I’m painting a barn door today!
