“You thrill me, Lord, with all you have done for me! I sing for joy because of what you have done.”

Psalm 92:4

Where to begin?

 A couple, who also have the fine distinction of being our oldest friends…I have known her since jr. high…my husband has known him since his high school days and maybe his jr. high days as well…

came over and helped us this day…this Saturday…they brought their strapping son along, so we enslaved enlisted his willing help as well!  

I will refer to them as Mr. and Mrs. Dearest, close relatives to the Darling family…because calling them Mr. and Mrs. Oldest just wouldn’t be nice…(snicker)

 He and my son had a great time…riding the four-wheeler (wink..snicker)

Mr. Undaunted and Mr. Dearest bravely tied down the dump trailer trash so that  Mrs. Dearest and I  could take a load (how indelicate) to the dump (shudder)!

While there, we had to ask a nice stranger to please come to our aid…afterall…the dumptrailer (how indelicate) was making strange sounds and wouldn’t dump(shudder)!

 A man about our age came to our rescue…and it turned out he was a brother in Christ…thank you, Lord…you keep surprising me with brothers and sisters everywhere that I didn’t know about yet!
