Sometimes The Best Blessings Come in Little Packages

In recent months as we have prepared for Rebekah's time in Virginia we had two major concerns.  The first was answered by finding the perfect living arrangement for her- renting a room from a wonderful family who attend the church she'll be attending.  The second concern was; what will she drive while down there?

May 22, 2011

I'm having a difficult time sorting out how I feel about yesterday's non-event.  The Rapture didn't happen; we're all still here.  Actually, I know what I'm feeling, the many reason why I feel this way are what need sorting out.

As I watched the evening News, with story after story of anguish and loss, wars, floods, murders and mayhem, the anchor then turned to the story of those who believed in the Lord's imminent return by saying, "Well, fortunately, the Rapture did not happen today."

Never a Dull Moment.

You know, some days are just more exciting than we are prepared to endure.

We've looked forward to today for a few weeks, since it's the final day with our Home School Co-op, which means the kids would be reciting poetry of their choice in front of an audience, Erin would enter a couple of her paintings in the art show, we'd stay for lunch, and then join the group at the park for a fun and relaxing afternoon.

Ohhhh, the best laid plans...

Between Williamsburg

This week we have had so many things happen that sorting them out could be done simply, or a big complicated mess.  Let’s take the simple path.

1. Jim and I arrived home from Williamsburg late Sunday evening.  Having stopped for coffee ¾ of the way, we weren’t sleepy at all, so we sat down with Kate and Isaac to watch a movie.  This took us to far later in the evening than I am usually awake, so when my cell phone rang at 11 pm I was glad not to be in bed.  My Mom was calling to tell me to turn on the News- Osama bin Laden had been killed.  We switched over to Fox News and saw Geraldo Rivera running through the breaking news.  Unbelievable.  I jumped onto Facebook and saw the reactions popping among my friends.

Williamsburg Weekend

Last weekend Jim and I were blessed to be able to get away for a couple of days.  Well, we were blessed, and we got away for a couple of days, but it wasn’t only for vacation.  We went to check out a couple of options for Rebekah’s living arrangements for the summer.

Thoughts on Osama

I don't have the time now to get my thoughts down on the recent news of the death of Osama Bin Laden.  Here are some links to articles written by wiser heads than mine.

I'll get back to you on my own thought- it's been a busy week.
