The old homestead

Friday, December 29th, 2006

Today, I went for a massage. The lady said I should go every month. Apparently I have a lot of tense spots. (Wonder why?) I tried not to laugh at her. Every month would be fabulous. I was there because some who love me paid for it for me as a birthday gift. Otherwise, my […]

We had a lovely Christmas

Wednesday, December 27th, 2006

I feel so blessed that our Christmas was completely delightful. Aside from missing daddy very much, we had a blessed day. We slept in and woke to a quiet morning. We opened presents very leisurely. My son took a lot of time enjoying things and looking at things as he opened. From Daddy, Angel Tree […]

My husband called tonight

Wednesday, December 27th, 2006

My sister sent him something for him to give to me. He disappeared in his room with wrapping paper […]

Shepherds Abiding

Saturday, December 23rd, 2006

I was reminded of this wonderful book when I was reading at Advent for Evangelicals earlier this month. I own all the Jan Karon books and I thought I owned this one but it wasn’t on my shelf. I borrowed it from the library and have been thoroughly enjoying visiting Mitford again. I am always […]

Pray for my husband

Saturday, December 23rd, 2006

Pastor went to see him yesterday. He said he saw some very big changes. He said that my husband is looking forward to coming home and being a godly husband and father. He is reading and studying a lot. Pastor was encouraged by that. Pastor was able to stay for 3 1/2 hours. I know […]

Car update~ It’s home!

Thursday, December 21st, 2006

Well I still don’t exactly know what is wrong. My nephew tells me it will be in my driveway when I wake up in the morning. (We shall see). He doesn’t think it’s any sort of big problem. So here is what happened after I posted the other day. I used Pastor’s car all week […]
