Jason had formation today, but instead of a uniform he wore a polo type shirt. It seems that the "required" uniform of the day is something that he simply doesn't have right now, and his section leader said not to worry about it. So, he didn't and simply put on something that looked nice, even if it was a little out of place. Anyway, after dropping him off I came back to the house to get in a quick bike ride and did about 11 miles before taking a quick shower and heading back to meet up with Jason. Actually he contacted me before I left the house and asked me to grab an envelop that contained some documents. He was meeting with a VA rep who would be helping secure the financing for his vehicle, and this was the VA grant document. The VA helps to pay for a vehicle, but more importantly they provide funds to help with the required modifications that will need to be done. Actually the meeting went very quickly and we were soon on our way back to the house, where he asked me if I was in the mood for a movie.

Since the U.S. Postal Service still hasn't delivered a package has a needed key, I really didn't have a great deal to do. The container is still sitting on the driveway with the lock on it, and its one of those locks that don't get cut very easily, so the best thing is to simply wait for the key. Okay, I'll quit complaining now... I agreed to go to the movie with him, and he wanted to see Homefront, and it was much better than I expected. It stars Jason Statham and James Franco, and both of them played their respective characters quite well; lots of suspense and a solid story line. I would recommend it if you'd like to spend an evening with a friend, or even by yourself.

We came back and there was a message that an organization was interested in picking up some of the older items that we no longer need. Father Joe's Village will be coming by on Monday to remove some of the stuff we have in the garage, thus making some room for the stuff in the unit sitting in the driveway. I was actually hoping to get some stuff moved tomorrow, but now that it looks like it is supposed to be a rainy day, I guess I should just be happy the way things have worked out. I'll give everyone an update tomorrow.

We won't be going to take Gracie to her Saturday training session, since it takes place at a park, out side. The rain is going to impact that as well. We'll probably go do some grocery shopping, and see what else the day brings. Thank you, all for all the continued support and prayers. Take care and stay positive.


  1. You're having rain and we're having cold! It was 28 when I took the dog for a walk today!
    These words give so much comfort! The Lord will always be with you every moment of every day. Keep your eyes on Him! Praying!
    Isaiah 49:13-16a Sing, O heavens; and be joyful, O earth; and break forth into singing, O mountains: for the LORD hath comforted his people, and will have mercy upon his afflicted. But Zion said, The LORD hath forsaken me, and my Lord hath forgotten me. Can a woman forget her sucking child, that she should not have compassion on the son of her womb? yea, they may forget, yet will I not forget thee. Behold, I have graven thee upon the palms of my hands...
