I thought after Thursdays rant and
messy rooms I would show you a clean room....This is my lounge room....and at the moment my sanctuary.
I have cleaned this room, and winterized it.
Down came the summer curtains and the summer paintings.
Up went the winter curtains and wall hangings.
I am the type of person that needs a change regularly, I love to
change the soft furnishing when the season changes.

I can cope with one room clean a place to go and sit
and relax..this is that room.
Thank you to all my wonderful blogging friends that
left me words of encouragement and wisdom....I know
alot of you are also going through hard times as well, yet you take
the time to love and encourage others....what a blessed community
we all have in blog land...

Yesterday I got to talk with the doctor and even though things aren't what we wanted to
hear I feel so much better......They have finely told us that they
really don't know how to treat this growth in Greg's liver as they can not find
a antibiotic to fight it.....At least they have been honest
and told us what is happening......So it looks like Greg could be
in there alot longer...They can't operate as he won't survive a operation
with his kidneys and liver not working well....
Yet through all this we have a real peace now......yesterday at church
one of the things our pastor said was: we can't rely on
man as man at some point will let you down as that is only human.....Doctors
are only human too and I suppose we thought they would have
all the answers.........they don't....
But I know that God does and we just have to trust in him....and
now knowing that....... we have a freedom....Our future is Gods worry now, not
ours..that's the freedom we have found, and it feels good.....

The wall hangings are ones I have made over the years,
just thought that I would share them with you, as they are what
I have out up on the lounge room walls to winterize them.

I hope every-one had a good week-end, and got all you
wanted to get done.....done.
Blessings to all



  2. Hi Mandy, it is hard accepting that we as humans are not perfect isn't it. The faith you have in God is fantastic and now everything is in his most wonderful hands. As hard as it is sometimes to accept his decision for us in life he is only following the plan that we were all born into. Much love as always

  3. Oh Mandy,I am praying for you, Greg and your family.

    Your lounge looks nice and homey and I love the wall hangings, I have made a few of these myself at one time.

    Hope things start looking up for you soon.

    My thoughts are with you.


  4. Hi Mandy, I love your white couch (and your blog)best wishes for you and your family.

  5. Mandy, I'm so sad to hear this news about Greg. No matter what happens, just know that God loves you and doesn't allow anything bad in your life except for a reason. One day you will be able to look back and understand why.

    I will keep your family in my prayers.

    *Hugs* dear friend.
    P.S. Your wall hangings are beautiful. You are so creative!

  6. such a beautiful cozy home you have!
    It feels loving!
