Summer has come and gone I think

I have this feeling that our summer has come and went. Our weather is staying in the lower 60's of late. Not that I am totally complaining. I had hubby put in the air conditioner and I think we only used it a week total. Went swimming with the gr-kids a few times this summer and now the lake is too cool to go back. But I don't complain too much. The good Lord gave us a few good days to enjoy. 

I have been busy branching out and selling purses along with my jewelry and army tags. That is something women just can't seem to get enough of. 
I know, I am one of them. I go through many purses a year. So I find them for a reasonable price and sell them for just a little bit more. 

It gives us money to buy more Bibles, socks, and essentials for people we see that need them. It gives us a great joy to see the smile on their faces when we give them things we know they need. We even get small stuffed animals to give to children that we see that may need a smile put on their faces. We've found that by giving a child a toy at a restaurant, they will become much quieter while waiting for their food. Making the ambiance more enjoyable for not only their parents but for all. 

I hope everyone has had a great summer and is not waiting to do the hurry and rush shopping just before school starts. I know my daughter is busy getting school supplies and clothing for her 3 already. Catching all the sales so as to get the shopping done now and she will have a couple weeks to relax before the kids do go back to school. 

Let the Lord guide you in all you do. Sometimes others don't think the choices you make are the right choices, but they don't live your life- you DO. Only you and the Lord can make those decisions. Sometimes they are really hard and they pay off. The good things in life ARE worth fighting for. With the Lord by your side it will all work out. 
Sometimes it doesn't work out the way YOU want it to, but it's the way the Lord wanted it to work out. So put all your troubles in the Lord's hands. 
Pray and he will answer in his time and his time only. 
NOT ours. 

All my love,
