The Lord's Day- the beginning of a new week

I will bless the Lord at ALL times...His praise will continually be in my mouth.
It has been a good week. God is good. I have felt good all week, gone for several walks, done some work around the house, gone out with family and friends, been to church 3 times- busy week.
After the hair cut on Monday night- things definitely got better all week! Thanks for all your prayers, kind remarks on Face Book and e mails and cards. Even 24 roses from my dear college Roomie- Gay Traster. I split them up into several bouquets and they have blessed us all over the house! Thank you SOOOO much Gay. They came the day after the "hair cut".
I got to be back into the Teen Mania scene briefly this week as I met with a couple of girls here at home. It felt so good to allow God to use me in this way again-even though the situations were extremely hard.
On Friday we went to Rockwall- about 1 hour from here- and met Amy and 5 of the children for lunch and a brief shopping trip to Costco. That was fun! WE missed seeing Caitlin, Haley and Josiah. I hope to see them soon. Caitlin was home practicing for an audition for college for viola on Sat. She was awarded the Natl. Merit Scholar scholarship- full ride for 4 years anywhere she chooses to go for being a Natl. Merit finalist. We are so proud of her and of Amy and Brian and the way they have home schooled their children- and of course to GOD be the glory- who gifted all of them to be able to do this.
On Sat. we attended a membership class at the church we are attending and then in the afternoon, Tonjua, a dear friend from Teen Mania, picked me up for a "surprise". She took me to a Day Spa and I had a Spa-pedicure. IT was so wonderful! My first- we also had lunch at a little cafe and visited a local Christian bookstore. What a wonderful day.
Sam and Lisa are getting ready to move out tomorrow. They have been with us since Dec. 5- 10 weeks since their house fire and the home is now rebuilt and ready to move back in to. We will miss them SOooooooooooo much. No more early morning stories with the kids...cheerful greetings from each of them EVERY morning...they have been such a blessing. Thank you, Jesus, for these 10 weeks with them!
Dave continues to work on the 1/2 bath in the "upper room". Today is working on wiring- has the toilet and sink in- cleaned out both garages today- they were used for construction and had lots of insulation in them- the plumbing had to go down through the one garage. He is now cleaning up has all the electric in so will be ready to tape, mud and then paint...on no...he has to hang doors yet...we are putting in louvered doors so that will be a bit of a project. Sam helped him get the wiring cut into the right wire in the attic last night so today's job was easier.
So, now into the new week. Chemo # 2 tomorrow- a 6 hour ordeal. Please pray for only the cancer cells to be killed and not any healthy cells. Tuesday we go in for the "golden" shot- $3400! I also have a new wig to pick up while in Tyler this week. I have 2 girls coming for dinner on Tuesday night, my Beth Moore "Esther" study on Monday night- and leaving for Wisconsin and spending time with my friend, Nancy and sisters, Patty and Sandy! Lord willing on all that, of course.
I entrust my life to HIM and just want HIM to be glorified in all I do this week!
Thanks for visiting my blog today!

You are so special, Mary Beth... as witnessed by your kids, their families and by your incredible attitude during your ordeal.

You continue to be in our prayers.
