Chaos and Massive Disorder

I am getting behind on my blog. I try to get out a post each week, but that has not been happening. We are on furlough mode. I have been cleaning and packing. We finished school the first week of May. I started with the school room and emptied the room and packed the school books away. Hurray!!! Then we tackled the boys room, ugh, just plain dirt. It blows through the windows then the fan blows it to the  outsides and corners of the room. I am sure you are not interested in all the dirt…ha ha!! We have our hall loaded with trunks. Trunks we are taking back and trunks that are staying, filled with books, towels, sheets and some kitchen items. I have on several occasions needed something that was already packed, to sort through the trunks to find the item. My kids wish they where still in school with all this cleaning. Trying to finish and use up any food items, but yet still needing some groceries to make it through the month. As Pastor Prince says, "Chaos and Massive Disorder" exactly!!

Our daughter Naomi turned 16 on May 4th. She had 6 girls over for the afternoon and to spend the night. They went to church with us on Sunday. Some of these girls we have known since they where little. We have some new girls who we hope they continue growing in the Lord.

We are getting ready for VBS the last week of May. Our theme this year is "The Armour of God". Naomi drew some armor and I helped her paint it. Then we attached Velcro to the pieces so someone could wear it. Then she drew a poster with the names Velcroed to the poster to be removed and the kids have to put the right name on each piece of armour. It should be a fun week!!

One of the girls over for Naomi's birthday was Esther. We call her Little Esther, because we have two Esthe's in our church. We found out that on Naomi's birthday on of her sisters (Sarah) had a baby. Wewhere excited for her. So the next Saturday Mack and I went to visit Esther and her family to see the new little baby. We where greeted by one of her twin brothers, Elvis. The whole family was gathered around, there are 8 children, most are grown and have families of their own, with Esther being the youngest. Elvis begins to tell us that Thursday their oldest sister died. We where shocked! I just got some sewing done from one of Esther's sisters (Gifty) and the one that passed was (Sapphira), she was there at the shop. We greeted the family and gave our condolences, we then got to see the new baby and pray with the new mom. It was a sad but yet rejoicing time for the family. The funeral will be in July, which we will not be here. Esther's brother Elvis is married to another girls sister in our church. Both families live on the same street as our church. Pray that they see Christ though it all and through the 3 family members that come to our church.


  1. Thinking of you all as you go through "crazy packing mode"....
    We are home and getting settled, just in time to prepare for my mom and dad coming to visit!
    Praying for you all as you prepare to go back, the long trip, and all the traveling you'll be doing over furlough!

    1. Thank you Patty. I am sure you all are excited to have your parents visiting. We have been praying for your family and Lilly. Your an encouragement to me as you trust and serve our Lord. Enjoy your time with your parents.
