Carol... ....our lady vicar has invited me to her house today to join a group of the bereaved...the group meeting is named " Sweet William " i am intrigued to find out how this has gotten this name... ....Oh i do hate to see a tree being chopped down... ....Sending positive thoughts on your hospital procedure...Ha ha, running in circles, or climbing up the wall...
I have some time before driving to a hospital procedure. Yesterday was interesting for us to witness the downing of large evergreen tree in the yard. It has been too close to the STOP sign and where people are supposed to signal before they turn right. The majority forget to signal and blame it on the tree . I will miss the chirping of little birds in nests all over the landmark tree.
Jackie: I triple check all my appointments now.
Yesterday, 5 neighborhood friends came for lunch. We have our bible study starting up soon too - the books arrived late so that will begin next week. Everyone always pitches in with one dish so there is more than enough and nice leftovers for supper. All five are widows and they are strong in faith. One dear friend lost her husband and daughter & son separately and she is so impressive to be functioning so well.
Here, we are not staying outdoors at all with the pollution from mountain fires. Everyone wants a good snowstorm to tamp down the fires.
Jackie: Someone checked on the double booking so I didn't have to run in circles.
Jennifer Rothschild 10 July at 21:00 · When I was a little girl, my dad always gave my brothers and me money to buy Christmas presents for him and my mom. One year, I picked out two coffee mugs to give them. They weren't the height of mug fashion, but they weren't tacky either. Now, wouldn't it have been awful if my dad had opened them and exclaimed, "Cheap mugs!?! Is this all you could get?" But he didn't, of course. Not in a million years! Why? Because he always gave to me in proportion to what he expected to receive from me. Friend, the same is true of God. He gives you what you need to serve Him. He supplies what you need so you can obey Him. If He calls you, you can be sure He has equipped you! So, don't hoard or rebel or be afraid when it comes time to do what He asks of you. Instead, take courage and do the next right thing with all that God has given you. You got this!
That's a great picture of you and John and the happy couple!
My follow-up app't with the cardiologist was good. He said the EKG was good and there is no leaky valve as he had suspected. The meds are working, so I'm to just keep on doing what I'm doing and come back in six months.
The weather here on the coast is really mild ... temps in the 60's. Just a few miles inland, though, they increase substantially. Marilyn is also on the west coast, so she gets similar weather. We are truly blessed.
