My little ARMY

Today a couple of Gods little warriors came to my house to help me do battle. They came complete with buckets and scrubbers and a willingness to serve. As if they were commissioned for war they busted up in here to help me tackle this bloody mess...now I am not saying bloody like the English people say like BLOODY HELL, I am saying bloody as in actual blood. A fight had occured inside my home Saturday while I was working, apparently my neighbors pitbull broke thru his fence( we found the hole in the fence) and came into my house thru the doggie door and tried to take Stetsons(my bull mastiff) toy ( his baby). Well, he fought and lost not only his baby, but his ear as well, hence the bloody mess. I was completely overwhelmed with the just the thought of trying to clean this house.I didn't know where to start. There was blood (and lots of it) on every surface, in every room. I am not talking a few splatters here, it was literally wall to wall blood. It alone would be enough to overwhelm anybody...Add on top of that, lets just say, house cleaning is not a priority of mine at this time as I have no storage and I am housing a couple of dogs the size of BEARS. So, in walks my little army, with big smiles and scrubbers in hand. Not only cleaning up the blood but helping me de-clutter...scrubbing floors on their hands and knees, and washing walls and counters all with no judgement only understanding and love. How amazingly refreshing to have Gods warriors show up to love on you. I do have angels and they are beautiful, one of them is sweetly shy and she has the most gorgeous mane of fiery red hair and sweet brown eyes, the other one is equally as beautiful, she has long locks and the blueest eyes in Texas, and a smile like no other...Another angel was at her home taking care of a Baby angel so his mommy could come here today....these are the faces of Christ... I swear these people have wings tucked away somewhere. I also had countless people praying for me and also offering to come and clean..incredible is the love of Christ. I will sleep tonight in a clean blood-free home, knowing that I am loved by God and alot of His little warriors. I love you Andrea and Ericka and Penny, you amaze me, thank you for loving me. I was truly blessed by you today. L.

Glad to help out Lisa, it would have been overwhelming for any 1 person alone, for sure!

Stetson and his "baby"... dangerous pair!!

OH Lisa--so sorry that all this has happened but I am glad to hear you got some much needed help. It's so wonderful to have "Angels of Errand" and to feel the Pure love of Christ manifested through his disciples!

First,what you do, please never blog about being bored.
Secondly, I've never been to a crime scene before where the forensics guy has to come in. However, I feel as if I just experienced an episode from CSI. Mother of GOD.

Jonathan, Andrea and Luke said...

Oh...one more thing. Love you too.

Stetson loves his babies...hims momma got it back for hims...stupid pitbully...I know A, like I said, if the forensics team ever had to spray LUMINAL in here, it would glow like a toxic waste dump( or like something else that really glows alot).

I've been sitting here thinking about the strange language I think I was hearing today... I wonder if anyone can translate.

"Wook at doody"
"der hims baby"
"stehsen hush"
"wook at doody, hims rowen in de gwass"

It's very perplexing, and yet all of the creatures seemed to understand eachother. Hmm.

:)
