Be forwarned – my thoughts take great leaps between each paragragh; but I didn't use "bullets" for my post, because I just hate it when that bullet formatting takes my indention button hostage.
So, hang on…like a ride in the Tardis…here we go!
I figured out how to sync 2 iPods to the same computer – with different songs on each one! Cool!
We have had lots of rain this week, and we re-e-e-eally needed it here.
It was such a blessing to have the McBride and Pitt family with us at church on Sunday! We got to hear great bluegrass-style music. They did a rendition of "For Unto Us A Child Is Born" from Handel's Messiah that had me in tears. They used the guitar and fiddle (and maybe the mandolin? I can't remember), and it was just beautiful.
Bro. McBride's preaching was spirit-filled and perfectly-timed, as usual. His Sunday morning sermon, "Does It Really Matter If I'm Faithful?" truly blessed my heart, and helped me to move forward personally, especially considering my "serious thoughts" from last Thursday.
Isaac has slept through the last 3 nights. It has been wonderful, and I am so grateful!
I got my hair cut last week and I am loving it!
I found some really cool verses yesterday.
Paul was teaching the church of Corinth how to handle a brother who was in sin, but who has now repented and turned away from that sin after the church disciplined him. I love the tone of these verses.
II Corinthians 2:7-8 – "So that contrariwise ye ought rather to forgive him, and comfort him, lest perhaps such a one should be swallowed up with overmuch sorrow. Wherefore I beseech you that ye would confirm your love toward him."
That really helps me. If someone has taken the proper steps to abandon their sin, we must reach out to them in love and forgiveness! It is not an easy thing to do, but it is so important, if they are to be reconciled back into fellowship.
Our truck broke down again yesterday – while Doug and Isaac were 2 hours away at therapy. Praise the Lord that our friend Howard is a mechanic, and was able to talk Doug through some steps to get it running again. He has to do something under the hood with the pliers to make it go, but that's ok because we have to do something under the hood in the fuse box to make the air conditioner run, too!!! So we might as well do both things at once, right? LOL! (Might as well laugh about it, right?) 😉
I am working on two mother's bracelets right now – one in silver and one in gold. I cannot wait to see how they turn out!
My phone is getting easier to work with…so I guess it is training me well. My very favorite app is mobislenotes. I have a to-do list for myself and one for Ike's caregiver. I prepare hers each morning, and then email it to her computer. She just pops open her laptop when she gets here, checks her email and reads her list. 🙂 🙂 :) You know how I feel about lists, so of course, this makes me very happy!
Two widgets that bring me great joy are the clock and the weather. I have them set so that I know the time and weather of all the places around the world where my friends and family live! England, Japan, Idaho, Tennessee, California. It makes it fun for me to see their weather, especially! 🙂
Oh — and here's a random picture for Dani:
(my husband thought these were absolutely hysterical, and insisted on taking a picture! now I'm glad he did!)
Well, I think that's it for me. I can't think of anything else that would be remotely interesting to you. I mean, I could talk about the mold and mildew that is trying to take over my bathroom, but really…who wants to hear me complain about jalousie windows again???
Enjoy your day — it is a gift from God.
