Scrap Twist Blog Train August

HI all – sorry this is late today…. I am so thankful it is August – what a month it has been. My youngest, 11y, said the other day “July has not been our month”. My Mother was in the hospital twice – that seemed like enough. The 2nd time, she had fallen and broke her hip, so she is now in a Rehab Center, at least another week or so. That was enough to keep us busy.

My husband has been out of the country for business. Last week he came home and went back to work on Monday. About 8 am he started to fill some pressure in his chest – and ended up having a heart attack (only 54y). It was 100% blockage – a widow maker. But by the marvelous grace and mercy of God, he survived and is doing very well. He came home yesterday.

I had a migraine yesterday, so I could not think clearly to post this. Even this morning I am looking at all I have to do – some just catch up with things around the house. But my 2 sons and DIL are coming this weekend to see Dad. Then I found out my brother and his wife are coming next week…. So just a bit overwhelming…. But that is how our household has been since my husband left on Father’s Day for his business trip.

Actually the verse I included with this mini, is one I have clung to this past month. When things start to get a bit overwhelming, I contact my prayer warriors and ask them to help lift our family in prayer. But also, in the midst of my husband’s heart attack – he was extremely peaceful because he knew that God was watching over him. I chose this verse because I was thinking about camping vacations and how relaxing they can be when we “get away” from everything. I DO PRAISE God with how HE has carried us thru all of this!

So this is the 1st time I have joined this blog train – I am excited to offer you another freebie during the month.

  1. I’m sorry to hear of all you’ve been to and happy to hear your husband is doing better.
    Thank you for the lovely freebie.

  2. Prayers for you and your husband. Thank you for the kit.

  3. Thank you for the free kit. I am so happy that your husband is home now. God is good! So many things happen in life that I’ve often thought one of God’s themes is “despite.” Despite this bad thing that happened, God was merciful and saw us through. Despite this being a dangerous situation, the Lord protected us. Despite this poor school, our Father is teaching them empathy and still allowing them to achieve…. etc.
    Blessings to you and praying for your family!

  4. First off most important I am praying for you and your family. Then I see you have 2 to download…thank you but can not get either to function…no rush sorry to add to your grief. GLORY

  5. Oh, Lori — sorry to hear about all that you have been going through. Praise God that your husband is well & that he was not away on the business trip when the attack happened. God is merciful! Good to hear that your mom is doing well, too. Falls; especially with hip fractures can be so serious — good to hear that she is in rehab. Praying that both your mom & husband will fully recover & get back to “normal” … & praying that your migraines willl go away!!! Take care!
    & thanks so much for your share of this blog train — I love the verse that you included! {{hugs!!}}

  6. I love your beautiful kits, the last couple blog trains, I have not been able to use you links even when open in chrome.
