I recently became a homemaker due to a combination of a lot of things. through hardship, I have found comfort in a lot of hard dirt and rocks. Literally, hard chirt, and big rocks...nothing will grow except rocks....and they multiply with ease when it rains. I have beautiful oak trees, but very little grass, and any flowers or foilage must be in some sort of container or above ground garden.


Out of all this, God has shown me why I have kept so many rusty bird cages, old rusty ornamental railings from the porches, old wooden porch post and broken clay pots, etc.

One sunny morning while sipping a cup of coffee between 6:30 and & 7 am, I walked around in those big rocks on old marble slabs for a foot path, praying for peace and comfort. While glazing at the broken clay pots, a warm feeling came over me, as if an angel had landed on my shoulder and my heart began to melt. Someone whispered softly in my ear, "Betty, You�ve kept all of these rusty and broken things, just like I�ve kept you, and now you can see their beauty as I see yours, in time, I will put you back together again too." Thank you for caring!

I don�t wanna do the dishes
I don�t wanna do the wash
I sprinkled clothes a week ago
And now my iron is lost!

I don�t wanna rattle pots
I don�t wanna rattle pans
I see the mail light flashin
I wanna chat with friends!

Oh, the table needs some dusting
and the floor could sure be mopped
But I know if I get started
there�ll be no place to stop.

The closets are so full
things are falling off the shelves
I wish for cleaning fairies
and magic little elves.

They could sprinkle fairy dust
and twitch their little nose
The windows would be sparkling
I would have no dirty clothes.

Oh, I know that I�m just dreamin
My head is in the sky
I must cook that meat that�s graying
and bake that apple pie.

The hubby needs a bath
the dog needs attention
Oh... the other way around I mean
my brain is in suspension

I am runnin round in circles
I am getting nothing done,
I keep thinking of my web
I am missing all the fun!

Well, I know I�m not addicted
Though I hear that all the time
But I quess this stuff can wait on me
Cause today I�ll be online and you can find me anytime
at Gardenweb....on the Junkers side!

I live in: United States
