Raking leaves

I'm going to pay for it tomorrow, but today I am strong and fierce! With a slight tingle in my arms and back, I type in denial.

I defy tomorrow!
Today I reign as Leaf Queen!
See my lawn and wonder!

Night wanderings

Haven't looked at Amy's blog yet, but no doubt that she has already announced that by the grace of God we have indeed made it safe and sound to Kokomo.

I'm rather jet laggy at present - going from complete exhaustion last night at 10 pm when we hit the hay to wide-eyed perkiness at 4:30 am - a few hours later.

The Lord has certainly been good to us. We are spending a few nights in the beautiful Dinkledine home while they are away. We are going to our new rent house during the day to get it ready. Robert was offered his old job back as the Chaplain at the Kokomo Rescue Mission. Amy goes back to making coffee tomorrow. Candace has a couple of job offers at IUK she's checking into. And I'm tickled pink to still have my dear ol' minivan back. Amazingly, it sat on a used car lot for the entire time we lived in Scotland and never sold - so it was waiting for us upon our return! Yippee!

I think I'll drink a cup of tea with Candace now. She ambuled into the kitchen shortly after I perched here. I told her we must both be jet-lagging to be up at this hour, but she reminded me that we both are known to wander about at odd hours. She's right.

One more post in Scotland

  • Furniture is being carried out
  • Boxes are filling
  • Friends are popping in
  • Some sickness is going around the house (please pray about that one)
  • Suitcases are being weighed for the plane ride

And on the other side:
  • Many details must be arranged

And how are we doing? Feelings are so random. But to be honest: sometimes we're excited, sometimes we're sad, sometimes we're confused and alone. Normal everyday feelings, but at times circumstances magnify them.

Let me not be blown away by feelings, though. I acknowledge them. I don't deny them. But I don't want them to rule either.

So, we press on. God's in control; that's for sure.

Love to all. We'll be in touch on the other side.

Not fats enough

The title of this post is a typo,
but it cracked me up so much I left it.

Can you guess what it's supposed to say?
