Another Crazy Week!

Well, it was definitely another crazy week in our house!!  Jerry had some infections on his arm that just wouldn't go away.  Being a mechanic, he always has scrapes and scars on his arms and hands...but these just weren't healing like normal.  Wednesday night after spending 2 1/2 hours at our daughters Track meet, we decided to go to Urgent Care.  Jerry could hardly bend his hand and he looked terrible with about 5 different sores on his arm and hand that were infected.  Needless to say, the Dr. diagnosed him with a staff infection.   He has been on antibiotics since Wednesday night and everything already seems to be getting better. 

Jerry has been feeling very tired lately, but other than that, he has been doing well.  He is a hard working guy, so he doesn't rest much as it is.  After learning what we have learned about our diet and nutrition and where our food comes from, we decided to try out raising our own chickens for meat and eggs.  Currently we have 18 "meat" chickens and 5 "laying" hens in our garage waiting anxiously for their new home.  Jerry has been working diligently to get it done.  As I type this, I hear him out there hammering away.   He will probably come in at dark and be so exhausted that he falls right asleep.  I keep saying he needs a break, but I'm not sure I could do what he is doing.  When his plan for the chicken coup is in his "head" it is difficult for anyone else to help anyway :) 

We are trying to prepare a spot in our yard for a garden as well.  We tried a garden a couple of years ago, but it did not go so well.  We want a garden, but Jerry keeps giving me little hints saying "I know I'm not going to have time to weed the garden or take care of it much at all".   He is unsure if I will have the time myself, but I told him today, that "we won't know unless we try".  So hopefully within this next week, we get our garden soil prepared so we can start prepping it for our upcoming garden.  I canned tomatoes for the first time last fall and I'm hoping to grow some of my own tomatoes to can this year. 

Well, I'm trying to be better about posting every now and again.  I had some people worried because I was going so long between posts, they thought things weren't going well.  So, if my post seems boring to you, I apologize, we just have no new news regarding Jerry's Tumor Health.  He does however, have an appointment on June 25 for an MRI, and we are both anxious for him to have this MRI.  We are praying to see a great reduction in the size of his tumor if not complete healing.  We believe that God has the power to heal, and that we have to walk in his healing. 

Matthew 17:20
20 “You don’t have enough faith,” Jesus told them. “I tell you the truth, if you had faith even as small as a mustard seed, you could say to this mountain, ‘Move from here to there,’ and it would move. Nothing would be impossible.”
