I don't really have much of interest to say today, but I felt the need to just pop in and say "hello." We are all doing fine, and I am feeling a little more hopeful about the whole "surgeries" scenario. Thank you for your kind words of encouragement and for your prayers for us.
I was able to enjoy some quiet time on Saturday. Doug took Isaac with him for a couple of errands and I was able to bask in that beautiful quiet that is my house with no other people in it and no television, radio, music, or movies making noise in the background. My a/c window unit drowned out all the noise from the outside and I rested my ears and my brain for a while.
I was also able to concentrate long enough in one sitting to put up some new jewelry items on Etsy. I love the whole jewelry making and selling process, but the pricing and listing is definitely not my favorite part. However, when you put up new items, it does definitely increase your web site traffic for a few hours, and that is always good and hopefully will eventually result in more sells.
Last night, at church, I was able to join the choir. We have found a small room at church where Isaac can make as much noise as he wants to, and it won't bother anybody. ; ) So Doug is sitting with him there, so that I can be involved with the choir. I enjoyed it so much, and I am so grateful to my good, sweet, thoughtful husband who saw that I had a need, and figured out a way to meet that need. I am so blessed!
Isaac is running a low-grade fever again today. We'll be making an appointment soon to see the orthopedist about his hip. He is really antsy and unsettled today, so I'm wondering if he is having some pain. : ( I did give him some M*trin, just in case.
Well, I guess that's it for today. I will keep you posted! : )
OH, and one more thing I wanted to share with you:
Our church will be taking up a special offering this next Sunday for some things that need to be upgraded in our ministry. We will be
- refurbishing some of the dorms at our college,
- continuing the construction of our gymnasium and
- purchasing a radio tower that will boost our signal back to its original strength.
(our old tower was leased, and when the lease was over, it was torn down; so now our radio station's signal is not reaching to places it was reaching before.)
Our goal is $150,000. If you think of us this week, would you pray for our offering? I know that God will be glorified by the way the church uses this money. If you would like to read more about our church and the ministries it supports, you can check out our newly refurbished web site: Landmark Baptist Church
I guess that's it for my rambling today. : )
Blessings to you,
