If you confess with your mouth that Jesus is Lord and believe in your heart that God raised him from the dead, you will be saved. Romans 10:9
For God so loved the world that He gave His only begotten Son, that whoever believes in Him should not perish but have everlasting life. John 3:16

A Sentence a Day - July 2021

 1 - Thursday.  After work, we ran to the post office to send a package to Colton and then home for a quiet evening of brats for dinner and watching some TV and doing some reading.

2 - Friday.  Hubby and I both had a chiropractor's appointment and my sister had surgery...we got news around 10:30 that she was out of surgery and all went well and no signs of cancer...God is so good.

3 - Saturday.  We took my sister shopping and to pick up some lunch and then we went home and spent a quiet (not so quiet with fireworks) evening with the dog, reading (finished reading Where the Wild Rose Blooms by Lori Wick) and watching some TV and listening to all the fireworks going off in the neighborhood.

4 - Sunday.  We met hubby's mom and brother and family for lunch and then spent the rest of the day at home and we watched the Capitol 4th Celebration which was pretty good and again listened and watched some of the fireworks in the neighborhood.

5 - Monday.  Went to work and took my sister for a CT Scan and then got word hubby's brother was in the emergency room having cut his finger (the end was just barely hanging there) and they stitched him up and sent him home to contact a surgeon tomorrow because he's going to need surgery.

6 - Tuesday.  Worked (finished the audio book I was listening to - Yarn to Go, Yarn Retreat Mystery #1) and then had salisbury steak and rice for dinner and watched some TV and played on my iPad and checked in with my sister who is recovering from her surgery on Friday.

7 - Wednesday.  After work (started a new audio book Silence of the Lamb's Wool, Yarn Retreat Mystery #2) hubby and I picked up some dinner and then had a hour or so at home before church, so I took the dog for a short walk and read some on my book.

8 - Thursday.  Brother-in-law had surgery and the doctor has raised the odds from 20% to  50% of saving the finger. (finished reading Whispers of Moonlight by Lori Wick)

9 - Friday.  Got a picture from the girls as they are in Texas together with my grandson.

10 - Saturday.  Took my sister to the store and also to pick up her new glasses and spent the rest of the day with hubby.

11 - Sunday.  After church Sunday night, we celebrated a couple for 65 years of marriage.  They are such wonderful people and truly model a Christian marriage and life.

12 - Monday.  Came home from work and found out the pilot light on the hot water heater was out.  We tried off and on all evening, but could not get it lit.

13 - Tuesday.  Washing hair in cold water is not fun but we called on the way to work and we have a plumber coming tomorrow morning. (finished reading Just Above a Whisper by Lori Wick and also finished To Know Her by Name by Lori Wick)

14 - Wednesday.  Plumber showed up but we found out we needed a new water heater, they had it installed within a couple hours, older sister saw surgeon and great report - no cancer and all is well.

15 - Thursday.  A friend had  heart surgery scheduled early this morning and around 9:30am hubby got a call from her husband that all had gone well and it was not as bad as they thought and the surgeon was very pleased and she should go home this evening and the Taco Truck was in town and we had tacos and a quesadilla for supper.

16 - Friday.  Work and then home to read, crochet and watch some TV

17 - Saturday.  First Saturday in a long time where we had absolutely nothing planned and we enjoyed it by eating lunch at Cheddars, buying some yarn, running a couple quick errands and then spending the rest of the day at home.

18 - Sunday.  We had 2 wonderful services and we had some visitors and all in all it was a great day.

19 - Monday.  After work we went home and made spaghetti and then I met my sisters and did some shopping and got home around 8:30 and I was worn out and barely moved the rest of the evening.(finished reading A Texas Sky by Lori Wick

20 - Tuesday.  Work and then went and got our first shingles shots and the 2nd dose is after 2-6 months.

21 - Wednesday - Work and then we both came home and took a short nap before church...Hubby hadn't felt good all day and I didn't get a really good nights sleep, so this helped a lot. 

22 - Thursday.  After work hubby and I went to my Aunt and Uncles house to visit and have prayer with them as my Uncle is not doing well...he celebrated his 90th birthday a couple months ago.

My mom's only surviving sibling.

23 - Friday.  Went to dinner with my mother-in-law after work. (finished reading Promise Me Tomorrow by Lori Wick)

24 - Saturday.  We had a rummage sale at church and spent the day there assisting when needed and crocheting when not, plus visiting and having a good time.

25 - Sunday.  2 terrific services at church and saw a rainbow after the evening service.

26 - Monday.  Hubby put on a beef roast before work and then after work finished it up and made some noodles and then after supper I met my sisters to do a little shopping.

27 - Tuesday.  After work we took a 20 minute drive and picked up some dinner from City Barbecue and then came home and ate and just enjoyed the evening.

28 - Wednesday.  After work I ran into Walmart and picked up a few items and then we had chili dogs for dinner and I took a short nap before church.

29 - Thursday. Decided to start binge watching JAG.  It's been awhile since we watched that series. (finished reading City Girl by Lori Wick)

30 - Friday.  Went to dinner with hubby and his mom after work.

31 - Saturday.  Met my sister and her husband for lunch and then ran a couple errands and were home for an evening of laundry, TV and reading (finished reading A Place Called Home by Lori Wick).

So that's my July in a nutshell.

  1. Those birthday balloons are so colorful, I've never seen any like that out in the yard. The girls & grandson look like they are having a lot of fun out & about & taking pictures to share. The taco truck sounds delicious & seems a good thing to have around. I like tacos. Karen

    1. Obviously, we love tacos too and it is very good. I love supporting a local business. I think they had lots of fun as one sister is in Florida and one in Texas and they don't get to be together as often as they like. Fortunately, we all got to get together in March for the wedding, which was awesome for all of us.

  2. These must be fun to look back on. I should give it a try!

    1. You should. It's kind of fun and not too difficult to keep up with. I'm looking forward to a couple years in the future to be able to look back.

  3. Praise God for the 'no cancer' diagnosis ... and your BIL's finger, too. Love this picture of your girls and Colton! Prayers for your uncle, Cathy.

    1. Thank you so much for your prayers Myra.

  4. You & rainbows.. you always find them - love it
    Prayers for your uncle. 90 - that's awesome
    Why do hospital visits always just seem to pile on all at once

    1. It seems to me that all kinds of things in life seem to pile up all at once. Man, life is not easy sometimes, but I don't want the alternative yet either. :)

  5. Quite a month!! Happy August! xo

  6. Wow, you had a lot going on. This is a good way to keep track of your activities...a kind of journal/calendar. I should do more of that, however, when you are retired it just seems like so many days are the same, but then when I look back and realize what all we really did, I realize that being retired can be very 'tiring'. LOL. I enjoyed your post. Glad your sister is okay!

    1. Thanks Pam. It seems to me that my days are all pretty similar too even though I'm still working.

  7. There were certainly a lot of hospital visits at the beginning of the month and I'm pleased to hear that all surgeries went well.
    Isn't it amazing how much you can fit into one month if you keep a note of what you've done each day?

  8. Busy month. Sounds like your church messages were especially good. We were starting a new series but missed last week as we were out of town. It is about belonging...something I struggle with.
    Wonder if your shingles shots made you feel bad? I had the shingles vaccination with the flu vaccination one time and it was not good. Sick for days.
    Discovering rainbows is an instant pick-me-up.

  9. So glad to hear that your sister's surgery and cancer removal went well! Praying for your uncle. What fun birthday balloons.


Thanks for visiting and commenting. Have a wonderful Day!
