Holding Plans Loosely
Friday and Saturday were lovely days. Warm and sunny, we had the doors and windows open. By Saturday night a cold front moved through and Sunday was rainy, windy and cold. A forty degree drop in temperature from Saturday to Sunday. Crazy spring 2018.
I woke up Saturday with a plan to sew for the grandgirlies. I have a fabric stash that I'd like to use up, and I thought making some simple peasant dresses would be a fun way to do it. Peasant dresses are cute and if you make them a bit shorter, they can be a peasant top, that the girls can wear with shorts. Win - win as my friend Linda would say. (grin)
My weekend actually took a turn mid-morning when my friend needed a ride to the ER. She's fine, and we were grateful for that news.
After our church fellowship meal yesterday, a few of us ladies went to visit our friend who had a miscarriage last week. Our friend married into an Amish family, and her husband had called a let us know that Katie would love a visit from us. We spent several hours there in the afternoon. I hadn't visited for a while so I was glad to see them and love on her.
Sorry for the poor photo quality. I took these later in the evening after a few friends had left already.
I've learned over the years, to hold my plans lightly in my hands. To be flexible, I do pretty well, but not always. I was very glad to have been able to be used by God this weekend to help my friends.
I'm going to take the kids with me to run errands (I have the grands here today), then because its rainy, we'll stop at CFA, see Rachel, get a treat, play in the playplace, and then come home.
I hope you have a great day!
