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.

MY STORY:

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
