In a well-furnished kitchen there are not only crystal goblets and silver platters, but waste cans and compost buckets---some containers used to serve fine meals, others to take out the garbage.
Become the kind of container God can use to present any and every kind of gift to his guests for their blessing.
" You prepare a table before me in the presence of my enemies." Psalm 23:5

Well the grandkids are gone along with all the noise and mess, I am sure after a time I will miss it but Hubby and I are making a move to town. There will be lots to do in the coming weeks packing, sorting, getting rid of all the stuff we have collected in the past 9 years, even a yard sale--maybe I could make a little money in the process. The drive back and forth during winter has become to much for Paul and we decided to move closer to work. This last winter was bad and we are looking toward retirement so we will begin a new life in a bigger town, St. Cloud. WE will be close to my son Michael and our new grandchild which is exciting. There will be many gardens to walk through and share and then there is the new Library which will be fun to visit and maybe I will even get a part-time job. All this freedom to experience new things. I have missed being close to things and we will finally be able to be more involved at church. All in all it will be a good thing. I look forward to sharing a new beginning with you all.

New beginnings are always exciting and full of possibility, aren't they? Sounds like a good decision Alice, and I cannot wait to see what you do with a new home.

I sure can see why Paul hates the drive to and from work in Minnesota winters!

My nephew (age 30) moved to MN from GA about 3 years ago for a job opportunity. He, like me, is very cold natured. He sure has had a rough time getting used to the winters there!
