Twenty-THREE.


Stalking mailboxes...I trained them well. Krista joins the countdown today in position 23. She is 23 years old and is also a senior at New Hope Christian College. She sent me a 21 too in case I forgot her age again. ::snort::

Very Random Thoughts

Wednesday - Three medical appointments for Jared. Skype with Mike. Discussions on how the travel arrangements for my upcoming trip to TX will go.  Bible study prep. Internet shopping for cheap tickets.  Gym. Emails with regional ladies for various projects. Jared is ill on top of all the other health things going on.   School. Mini-meltdown  - so much stress - God's got it. I just need to keep resting....rest....rest...rest...and let Him carry it. Made dinner. BED. 


Thursday - Tryst - worship in the Tent of Meeting. Gym.  Hit the 20 lbs down mark today - 40 more to go. One appointment for Jared. 


"Rest, De'Etta....I've got it." That's right, sweet Jesus, thank you for the reminder. 


Regional Skype. God on the move - the enemy's been defeated...gonna lift our voice in victory....gonna make your praises our loud....shout onto God with the voice of triumph...we lift Your name up!  Oops - where WAS I?  Radiologist was trying to reach me all day via the chapel. Our phone reception is the PITS out here. Seems that Jared needs another immediate ultrasound....tomorrow. Three appointments for Jared tomorrow. He jokes he should move in to the clinic. I offer to pitch a tent for him. ::snort::  Handled a variety of PWOC things.  No school today. Didn't meet with my MOPS play group today as I simply couldn't do anything which wasn't "essential". ::sigh::  No school today - WAIT TABLE SCHOOL and Stacia DID Bake Brownies for Benji and the B family.....Twenty-four days...maybe I can crawl away to a cabin in the woods with a nearby onsen.....in 25 days....


"Rest, De'Etta. Do you trust Me?" yeeeesss, yes, YES - I do.  That's right.....YOU'VE GOT THIS. NOTHING IS GOING TO HAPPEN IN OUR HOME, JARED'S HEALTH, OUR SCHOOLING, ASIA REGION  that will SURPRISE YOU...You know when Michael will be home...and You know that more than Michael I need to enter into Your REST.....I'll rest. I will.  The "to do" list will wait for tomorrow. Tonight, I will worship and lean back as a child whose fussed herself out and REST.

Twenty Four Brownies


Baked for Benji and the Beasley family.  (It was so messy cutting them that we made another pan to take to the Beasleys and will just eat those mangled ones ourselves). LOL

Twenty-four Freshly Harvested boxes of cabbage?

I thought there were 24 boxes of harvested cabbage in the field over our fence. 

But when I got the photo take there are 33....oops - still hunting for 24.....but....


Look what they brought me.....we've been smiling and "konichiwa ing" and "ogenkidesu ing" for months across the fence. They like to see me hanging my laundry - go figure. I think they get a kick out of the thing blowing over.
