I found this post that I had not posted – did not want it to go to waste.

While Fermin and I were in San Diego we did some driving along the beach, later we headed to Balboa Park.
When Fermin was in meetings – I’m out with my boys!!! Carlos just happened to be in town leading a seminar ♥
The TV was on, I wasn’t listening, but as I looked they were talking about how much women’s purses weigh.
Fermín always, always complains that my purse weighs too much and it does, but I look inside my purse and I need everything in it. I went ahead and got my kitchen scale out and weigh it. Can you imagine carrying 5 lbs. plus with you everywhere you go. I decide I did not needed everything as much as I thought I did.
♥ That was the fastest weigh loss I have ever had ♥
Do I struggle? Do I grieve? Do I have trouble? I have days like that and today is one of those days. I feel like my faith is not strong enough, like I should not feel like that, but I do. I have fears, I act like an unbeliever.
As a Christian, is it wrong to be troubled? Then my son reminds me that Jesus was also trouble to the point of death (Matt. 26:38) – BUT I need Not To Stay There!!! I should not feed my worry – It hasn’t worked in the past and it will not work today. (Matthew 6:27) Guarding ourselves about worry sometimes is a daily process.
Pray with me.
1 Chronicles 16:11
Look to the LORD and his strength; seek his face always.
Psalm 20: 7-8
Some trust in chariots and some in horses, but we trust in the name of the LORD our God.They are brought to their knees and fall, but we rise up and stand firm.
The LORD is the strength of his people, a fortress of salvation for his anointed one.
About a week ago, Noemi Vera put together an outing for some of our ministers wives that live in the Fresno area. It was so much fun to just get together, eat, laugh, shop and have a good time. San Francisco was the perfect spot for our group. Thank you Noemi for loving ministers wives the way you do ♥
These are the twelve minus the photographer, me
What Do women do best when they get together? OK, beside that… (LOL) EAT!!!

My little organizer granddaughter, Seanna, asked me if I like to organize, I think she was offering her help, so in her honor I need to get somehow organized before she comes back and checks ♥
I always look forward to my trips to San Francisco, but last Tuesday, when Fermin asked if I wanted to stay I did not hesitate to say YES! So on Wednesday, he went without me.
Every new year I feel so behind, I started to take the Christmas Tree down right away, did some washing, I have a lot of ironing to do, etc. get the idea. I feel so industriouos. But wait… I’m going to San Francisco on Saturday with some girl friends, just for the day ♥
Carlos, Heather and the grandkids left yesterday afternoon. I started to take the Christmas Tree down and this morning the house seems quite, too quite. I miss them already ♥
He got so many toys, and he loved playing with all of them but look at him right then, he was having fun with a simple cardboard box.
A special moment.
“Papa, are you paying attention?” I think Fermin is getting somekind of a lesson.
