Here I am, folks. You can quit holding your collective breaths!
Almost 5 weeks later. We are moved in, and we are LOVING our bonny Bonnie house! Beautiful hardwood floors, a BIG SEPARATE DINING ROOM, big wooden blinds in all the windows, and a BLACK kitchen and bathroom. Perfect for me. AND the back yard is wonderful--as soon as the mosquitoes die, I will go live back there. Very private and woodsy.
And we live next door to DQ. Not that that means anything to us....
And we're "around the corner" from church and my mom at the nursing home. THE BEST PART! We've been having prayer meeting here, which I love.
Greg and I just celebrated our 34th anniversary! More than a third of a century together! We are so crazy happy and blessed. Greg's working part time, driving for the nursing home.
Yesterday, Greg took me to Abilene for our anniversary. We went to the zoo @ 9am. COOL breezes! I think I got some good pics, but my computer is acting up and won't upload. Sigh. We ate at Golden Corral, and I had some sweet potato casserole, with the marshmallows on top. I took one bite, and it was Thanksgiving! It was so weird! I could TASTE Thanksgiving! Wow.
I thought about starting a series of posts on loving your husband and your children, as in Titus. May I please ask your opinion on this idea? If I get a few thumbs up, I'll get started soon.
I'm currently reading The Mortification of Sin by John Owen. Reading him is like eating steak--small bites, chew thoroughly. He is SO worth it. I took apart the book (sorry, Chad!) and put it in a notebook with blank pages between sections, so I'm commenting and writing down the good quotes--making it my own. I'm thoroughly enjoying this.
And I can't get out of Luke 1. Mary's song of praise to God has captured me. What a woman! And how God used her.
Fellowship Sunday tomorrow over here. Come see us! Mexican food!
For what it's worth, I'm back in the bloggity world again. Come back often and visit!

This is one of my favorite things to do: rescue potential treasures! What do you think? Yes, the cover looks amazingly like the curtain in the background for some strange reason.... Oh, yes, and the chair cost me $9.99 at Goodwill.

Wow, a whole month without posting. Shame on me!
Surprisingly enough, the Risses are moving. Come visit us next door to Dairy Queen. How easy it that to find! It's one of Bonnie's houses, and, if you know anything about her, it's beautiful! Hardwood floors. A REFUGE of a back yard. This is the first back yard we've had that I will actually inhabit. It's so lush back there! AND a storage room, AND a covered carport. AND a BLACK kitchen. I'm excited about that, believe it or not! My kitchen here is pink and black, with beige walls. See you on the 1st to help unload the truck!
Winters has (bad English already) been very good to us. I will miss the folks here, and we had a lovely duplex in which to live. It was a good year.
I'm excited to see what the Lord has in store for us in Coleman. We've come full-circle. We started out there in 1992, and we're back! (Minus 6 children.) To go to church 1 minute away! To have Mom in the same town. To have the brethren right there. To be able to invite people to church. To be closer to Sarah. I am stoked.
God is good, and He is faithful!
