Praise !

"NOW THANKS BE UNTO GOD, WHICH ALWAYS CAUSETH US TO TRIUMPH IN CHRIST !"

The LORD is my light and my salvation; Whom shall I fear?The LORD is the strength of my life; of whom shall I be afraid?
When the wicked came against me to eat up my flesh, my enemies and foes, they stumbled and fell. Though an army encamp against me, my heart shall not fear....Psalm 27 1-3
Psalm 31: 7, 8
I will be glad and rejoice in thy mercy; for thou hast considered my trouble; thou hast known my soul in adversities;
And hast not shut me up into the hand of the enemy; thou hast set my feet in a large room.

BIG family day !

My son-in-love, Tim, is career army, and for 13 years now, between 3 deployments, many moves, and being a husband and father of three, he has been squeezing in classes toward getting his college education.

My daughter, while being wife and mommy, and holding down full time teaching positions, has devoted as much time as she could to being his tower of strength throughout this process.

Today, she proudly watched the reward of Tim's very great effort, and her own.  Tim received his Associates degree !

And his mom got to fly in from Oklahoma to be there for the big day and to spend a week with the family.

WHICH was also important because of the fact that my youngest grandson celebrated his 8th birthday today !  That's the baby of the family and he's not a baby anymore !  I don't have birthday celebration photos yet, but maybe I can update with them later.

Sadly, my computer won't let me download the rest of the photos that I want to share.  

Anyway, it was a blessed day all around.  I wish I could have spent it with them.
Instead, I drove to the local medical center first thing this morning to try and get some relief from this SNOTTY nose and cough I've had for a week.  I've self-medicated all week, but when the cough was very painful in the middle of the night, I knew that I wanted x-rays.  Good news is that a bit of bronchitis is all that showed from the lung shots,......NO PNEUMONIA , praise God !   So, I got a antibiotic/steroid cocktail shot in the hip.,,,,,,,,,which nearly rendered me one-legged for about 15 minutes.......and a couple of prescriptions.  I felt good enough this afternoon, after a 2 hour nap, that I strapped on a mask (to guard against all the dust and pollen) and managed to get the backyard mowed FINALLY.   

So, it's back to work tomorrow, if the world doesn't come to an end tonight, and hopefully I won't be soaking through 3 hankies and a WHOLE LOT of tissue.

  1. I've self-medicated all week, too, but finally found some allergy meds that are helping. It was so sweet getting a good nights sleep last night. Congratulations to Tim, that's wonderful!
