Changes Changes

WOW what a day at We Will Go we got to take 2 vehicles downtown with donations for the poor, food and clothes. Big SMILES as in HUGE. I need a new expression to replace a s*#t eatin grin.
That just isn't appropriate but it is a good description of my face so great was my joy!  Our church sent out an e mail blitz and the people responded.

THEN listening to Amy's amazing stories of being deep in the bush of Mozambique with nothing.
How some people suffer. It fit right in with the 7 study and what God is doing in my heart already.
We are in the week that focuses on clothing. My 7 items are pretty easy choices because I don't wear a lot of what is in my closet. I do love my make up and my bling. My choice is going to be to reduce in those areas. I'm going to sell a lot of my bling to begin raising money to go to Uganda in October. My cousin who lives in Southlake TX has invited me. We are going to meet Katie of Amazima, and other activities with the people. Last time she went 5000 people were baptized. My Compassion International son Isaac lives there too. I hope I can visit him and his family.

So much to do and so little time.

I have been ministering to the sick and the old. A woman in my LG class was sent home with an open incision that needs dressing changes and packing daily; it's only from her sternum to her pubis and she is supposed to do this HERSELF. ARE YOU KIDDING ME?
So much for the great improvements in health care. I thank God I know what to do and go to her home and take care of her.

I can see that there is so much to do that having a job is not on the agenda. My back and feet wouldn't hold up anyway. I have been having intense lower back pain but just ignore it. I had years of working like that. I'd rather be busy than baby myself and give in to it.

Life is so good. I am so grateful! God is so faithful so rich in mercy. My heart is so full it's spilling.

My little rescue girl is something else what a great dog. The hubbins only wants one dog here.
I have been thinking this over carefully. To save her life it seems to me the decision is to place Sammie.  Maybe I am becoming a foster dog mama. You would think I wouldn't be able to let them go but I can. It gives me so much satisfaction to save their lives and restore their health and trust and then find them the perfect home. Mercy is going to have puppies.  They will need homes too.
You should have seen Roman when his family came home. He was so joyful and happy that he went out of here without even looking back. THAT did hurt a little, but it was a good hurt. He is HAPPY and they are madly in love with him. He is their Rasmus I had my Rin Tin Tin and some times in life that is a one time experience. I still love dogs and doing this is a very cool thing. I really love it.

Please pray for the perfect placement for Sammie and for Mercy's puppies to be healthy. She needs to gain a LOT of weight quick her ribs are not showing as much but she is still very thin. She has such a beautiful wheaten coat and she has been awesome.

I think we can call you "the angel of mercy" now. You are doing good things and you know that it's where you need to be and what you need to do.
Wishing you a strong back and healthy puppies.
