It’s been a busy spring. Lessons have abounded. (I hope I’m learning them all well, Lord.) We started the year with our Online Course & Community for Good for You-Naturally™ for Life! After that, we were hitting our planned lessons here at home heavy, hoping to make good progress before baseball season hit (always a break point for us.)
Well, baseball season is here, but that isn’t the crux of our busyness right now. We are giving our 5th dd her graduation party on Friday. That too is nothing more than an iron in the fire. Things are all planned, and God is in control. I truly can rest in that. But I think I’ve been running on pure adrenaline as we’ve have faced one thing after another lately. The last couple of months have been very “over the top” to say the least. Yet, we are so grateful that nothing seriously bad has happened – and much good. Life is good, because God is good. I am so thankful for a sovereign God who reigns over all.
3 weeks ago we decided to do dd’s party this week, because her best friend (from 1/2 way across the states) was going to be here now. We started planning the party, and lined up her pictures being taken, and she began finishing up scrapbooks, and re-organizing notebooks and such. That week one of our older dd’s and her 3 kids – and their dog – came and stayed with us. The next week all of our family, but me, got the flu. It was short lived (less than one day) but hard hitting, and everyone got it one after another, so that was a whole week.
Last week dd and I drove to Denver (3.5 hours) to pick up her friends at the airport. We got hit in a hail and tornado storm while there. We came through perfectly safe, but it was certainly an adventure (I tell about it in our newsletter that is going out, hopefully, today) – and of course it delayed us about 5 hours, and got us home late night. (Very SLOW moving storm, right down the Interstate that leads home. And VERY long day for our friends and us. They’d gotten 2 hours sleep before they had to catch their plane, and we’d gotten 4 before we had to go get them.)
We’ve gotten much accomplished, but her friends have both been sick the last couple of days. And tomorrow 2 more of her friends come. (All staying with us.) In the midst of this we had ds’s birthday party on Sat. with 21 people, and Wed. will have mine with about 28 people. And we’re in the midst of preparing the food for the grad party.
Last night our youngest woke up with a sudden onset ear ache, in much pain. After doctoring him up, his dad asked if he wanted to watch a video – hoping that would get his mind off the pain. He did, and it did. He chose a movie, and he and I watched on a portable player in my bed–while his dad went back to sleep. At about 3:30 he asked if the movie was almost over. I told him he didn’t have to watch till the end, we could turn it off if he was done. He said, “OK,” and turned over and went to sleep. He feels fine this morning. (But at least one of the friends is still sick.)
DD and friends plan to spend the day at the lake tomorrow, giving them a respite from planning and work, and some fun for their visit. I plan on a bit of a semi-down day too. Especially praying that I don’t get sick this week!
After the party and our guests go home, and perhaps a few days to just relax, we will hopefully get back to the planned lessons. And hopefully back to regular blog posting. So now you know why I haven’t posted much lately. Life happens!
Prayers appreciated whenever God brings us to your mind – that God would bring healing to all, and that all that needs to be done will get done. Ultimately, He alone knows what that is.
