Today was Jon’s birthday…I think he had a good day. Tabbi and the boys came over for church and stayed till around 3:00. Kelli and Megan called to wish him happy birthday and I know he talked to Bria and Emmy, too. The boys drew him lots of pictures and he got some very fun cards. How do you celebrate a birthday in a way that lets that person know how much you appreciate him. Probably not with a cake with screwed up frosting….sorry, Jon. All cake aside, happy birthday, Jon!!!
It’s been crazy windy here today—really crazy. Some more good news…Trever and Tabbi’s dog Sadie had her first litter of pups today (or during the night)…nine healthy yellow labs. They will keep one, the only female. That’s right, 8 males, 1 female…pretty unusual. Congratulations, Sadie!! Sounds like she’s a really good mom. Pups will be ready for Christmas…anybody want a puppy? What a great gift for a child or grandchild!!!!!
Thought for the day
We need to be very careful to choose what we think. There is a lot of panic and fear out there, and we have to understand that we in a war…not against other people, other politics, Wall Street, or enemies we can see. Satan is warring against our peace. We have a God that is bigger than any government, any economy, and any enemy. He has His own reasons for what He does, but He NEVER forgets His own child. Get to know Him and how much He loves you. Trust Him with all that you can’t sort through, and when the enemy attacks your peace do not argue or reason…tell the one terrorizing you that your life belongs to Jesus and he should take it up with HIM. Let others stand with you…this is not meant to be a solo battle. Always renew your mind in the truth and learn what He is teaching you.
