Half Way Today!

This was supposed to excite us - but I think it put us in a funk. ::snort::

The kids and I wore stickers in honor of the day.

We went to the 1100 service today. Worship was good, sermon was good, fellowship was good....We were pretty much in a funk. Just keeping it real.

We went to Mokuteki for lunch.

I spent the afternoon trying to Skype with Mike, working on ministry communications, typing up thoughts from last year's retreat, talking with Michael on Skype, Skyping with a fellow Regional Board member and am now waiting for an email so I can send it on and go to bed.

Meanwhile.....I'm thankful that I now have patio door curtains.

At least until I get the repairmen over. ::snort::

Michael's been gone 4 1/2 months....3 1/2 left....give or take a week or two....the weeks seem to be dragging just now. We've filled them with activity to keep from "sitting around and moping all summer," but I'm starting to wonder if we may need to fill them with a bit more REST. LOL 

Zander reminded us all today that it will "most likely snow before Dad comes home." Soon....soon...soon.  Praying that Michael continues to have opportunities to minister our Lord....that he is kept safe....and that the time goes quickly.

Choosing Joy!

Praying, Sis...Sorry y'all feel mopey...Are there ways to turn the mopes into poems? (Rearranging letters here.) Then make an ice cream cake celebration and invite Mike to join over skype and share the poems?

Sis: Sorry and we are continuing to pray from this end. Like the poem idea from Darshia. Neat! Of course I am not much of a poem writer..... reader yes, but that is it.

Agree with everything you said and want prayer for. love/prayers - Mom T.
