Flower gardens: Grow something beautiful

We've all seen beautiful pictures of flowerbed designs that are picture perfect examples of expert flower gardens. The great thing is it's not all that difficult for the average or even beginner gardener to have flower gardens that will turn peoples heads and provide hours of enjoyment for both the homeowner and others.

In the day when I cried out, You answered me,
And made me bold with strength in my soul.

So Much Going On

I can't believe how long it's been since I've posted on my blog (or anywhere for that matter) but God has been moving in my life in many many ways.

The greatest I would have to say is my 'new' job. Yes, after being unemployed except for part-time cleaning for my landlady for nearly 2 years I now have a real job. Years back I said I would never work at a home for the elderly again but I am and loving it. I guess someone finally got it into my head I am a care-giver and if I must say so myself am pretty good at it.

If you're not familiar with homes for elderly for the most part they are places families stick their 'loved ones' to live out the remainder of their days. NOT so with my new job - one of the requirements is to spend time with the residents and help them to be safe, comfortable, and happy. Playing cards, bingo, watching movies, going for walks (inside and/or outside) or just setting and talking. Hugs, hand holding and prayers are more common than not.

I love my new job and God willing will be there until I'm ready to be a resident myself :) Please feel free to share your experience with homes for the elderly!
