Touched.

Yesterday was a decent day...until I got off of work. Bleh, again. I ran into a real issue with a friend. My afternoon was ruined...and I still had a long evening ahead of me. But I got through it, talked it out with my mom, mom in law, and hubby...took it to God, and I'm ok with it. I'm still a little hurt, but I'm getting over it. =)
But enough of the "bad stuff" for now...
I have to tell y'all. I had to go to the funeral home last night. The grandfather of one of my very best friends, "J", passed away. =( I've been friends with this guy...well forever. ha! Or at least since I was born. So I knew his grandfather pretty well. I grew up around him, and let me go ahead and tell you... he was an amazing man. He accomplished SO much in his lifetime! And such a great man of God.
We were standing around talking, and someone asked how long his grandparents had been married. 59 years!!! Can you believe it?!?! What an amazing example this beautiful, godly couple have put in front of all of us!
Hearing that just made me grin. I can only hope and pray that if Clif and I live long enough, that God may bless us with that many years of marriage! And happy at that!
I can't begin to tell you what a sweet couple they are/were. I've always though so much of them! Such a blessing!
"Js" grandmother is such a sweetie. You see, the grandfather has been ill for quite sometime now. And they weren't physically able to make it to Lilly's funeral. Well, when I spoke with the grandmother and told her that we were praying for her, and to please let us know if there was anything that we could do for her, the sweet lil thing was worried about me!
It was just a blessing to see that even during her time of sorrow, she was still concerned about others. The whole evening just really touched my heart. I can only strive to be like those sweet people.
So even though the evening started out bumpy, it ended bittersweet. It was bitter because the family had lost such an important member, but sweet because we know where he is...and he touched so many lives.
Also, after Clif and I got home and did the nightly ritual of packing lunches, ironing uniforms, and polishing boots...we were able to sit on the couch together, and look at a list of houses that our realtor sent to us. =) We found a few that we really like, and I think that we may be going to look at one or two tonight. We still have to put our house on the market so I am not getting my hopes up, but we plan to have that done in 2-3 weeks. We've been talking to our realtor and he seems to think that now is a good time to sell...and buy. So we shall see!! Pray for us as we try to sell, that it might be in God's timing...and that He will show us the house that we should be in. =)
Hope you are all having a wonderful week. May God bless each of you that reads these words.

With Love,
Des

Praying that your house sells and that things work out.
I have been there before someone else was at a loss and was worried about me at the same time. It is sweet.
Hope you have a great week.
Love

Praying the Lord leads you to the right house, and yours sales quickly.
Hope your having a better day...can't stop thinking about you, I think it's because your so close to my stepchildren's ages.
