Small Town Living

The nice part about living in a small town: When you don't know what you're doing, someone else always does.

Hello!

Yes, I'm still alive. Just snowed under with life. Which I'm very thankful for. God has blessed me beyond measure. And I try not to complain;-)

Spring Break was eventful....pictures tomorrow? Really, they speak for themselves.

As for Mom she is doing about the same. We had a little funny at church yesterday. Her pump started beeping, so she exits the building. I wait a few minutes, still hear beeping, and go and check on her. The pump is saying that there is air in the line. Ok, last time I watched a movie, air in the line was not a good thing. I call the # on the pump, leave a message, and wait. They called right back and walked me through priming the pump to get the air out of the line. Note: air in the line in a main artery causes concern. Air in a large vein, not so much. Whew!!!! Now ya know:-) Meanwhile, the church is all staring at sister P at the piano wondering what's up with Mom. Sister P proceeded to explain it was just her pump, no phone call today.

As for Mawmaw, she is not doing so well now. Please remember her in your prayers. She is having pain in back/hips and cannot walk and has a cold. Hospice and her nurses are taking good care of her. We are so blessed that she is in a very caring environment! God will supply all of our needs!!

Don't know about you Chrono Bible readers, but these familiar faces and events we've been reading as of late, are such a blessing. I love the book of Psalm being intertwined with Samuel. With all Saul's jealousy and rage, these are reminders of how we are to react when the enemy is at our heels. That no matter what, enemy or foe, we should keep our vows to God and give thanks always!

Here are some of my favorite verses from last week. Psalm 56: 8) "You keep track of all my sorrows. You have collected all my tears in your bottle. You have recorded each one in your book. 9) My enemies will retreat when I call to you for help. This I know: God is on my side! 10) I praise God for what he has promised; Yes, I praise the Lord for what he has promised. I trust in God, so why should I be afraid? What can mere mortals do to me?

This should make us all smile.

Psalm 56: 13.....So now I can walk in your presence, O God, in your life-giving light.

Love to all,
Carrie

I love that verse 8 in Psalm 56 about God collecting all our tears in a bottle. It must be one huge bottle ;-)

God bless you & your dear family!

Glad that your mom is doing ok and that the air was nothing to worry about. I'm like you - that sounds dangerous to me!

Many blessings upon you,
Beth
