January 10, 2012

Today wasn't much different from yesterday, though the actual appointments were with different people. The girls got to go play with their new friends again, and Jason and I were able to get the things done that we needed to do. About the only different thing that happened was that I now have a vacuum available to use, and it was used. Actually most of the house has vinyl flooring, except for most of the upstairs area and the bedrooms. Oh, yeah, I think I mentioned a couple of days ago that Jason shaved off his mustache, well, today he got his first reaction from doing that (besides from me). Lynn commented that he looked better without it and that he looked five years younger. She also went on to say that she didn't particularly care for facial hair, and I said, "Oh, really?" (For those that don't know what I look like, I have a full beard, and at the time she said that, the bear needed trimming - a bunch). She looked at me and was instantly embarrassed, so I had to give her a bad time and then gave her a hug. I also told her that I still wasn't going to shave mine, besides Linda (my wife) likes it and that's all that really counts anyway. As a side note, I did finally get to a barber and he trimmed my beard up, along with the hair cut. I guess I went about two weeks longer than normal, so I feel much better now.

Not much more to write about today, so I'll be signing off now. Thank you, for all the continued support and for all the prayers that continue to come our way.

  3. Jason and George,
    Here is a prayer from Joel Ostten's book, Your Best Life Now,
    "With your help, Father, I will refuse to stay down for long. I may get knocked down, or I may fall down, but I will get back up and keep trusting You for a great future."
    Jason, have a great day and a great rest of your life in Jesus' name.
    Blessings Always,
    Paula Gentile, friend of Carol and Tom Hall, from Pasadena, Maryland

    Jason and George, I hope you get my postings as I know there is a time difference.

  4. Hi Jason - it's pretty great to know that you are getting your appointments in. Did you hear we had some light snow earlier this week? Take care Jason, glad to read the girls have some new friends to play with. Always reading your blog!

  5. Continuing to pray!
    Romans 5:6-9 For when we were yet without strength, in due time Christ died for the ungodly. For scarcely for a righteous man will one die: yet peradventure for a good man some would even dare to die. But God commendeth his love toward us, in that, while we were yet sinners, Christ died for us. Much more then, being now justified by his blood, we shall be saved from wrath through him.

  6. I always worry when I don't see a blog for the day that something has happened. Hope you all had a great day today. Keep us posted regarding the chair, etc.

    Praying for continued healing in all aspects for everyone.
