Well, it started out today pretty much as most of these days have started out, and that is with Linda and I getting up to get some exercise in. We have not only discovered that exercising and eating better is good for you, we have fully embraced the idea. It is almost as if it is something we have to do now, and when we don't, we feel a little out of sorts. Actually, I didn't get to do much exercising this morning, though that was my plan. I ended up getting pulled in to a few things going on with Stand Up and Play, and lost track of time. By the time I realized how late it was, it was too late to get started -- Jason had a couple of appointments he wanted to get to today, and there were other things we (Linda and I) needed to get done.

The appointments went well, though one of them took a little longer than normal - it wasn't a VA appointment, so it wasn't a VERY long time, just longer than usual. Linda needed to get going, as she was taking the girls up to her parents (Joe and Jess, or as Stacy and Jackie call them: Nana and Tata), for the weekend. Jason and I are headed up to Newport Beach to participate in a golf tournament and skeet shooting. This is being put on by Carrington, and they wanted as many of the Wounded Warriors there as could make it. It was decided that because the girls are so young that it wouldn't be fair to them to bring them along, and that going to Nana and Tata's would be way more fun.  Anyway, Jason and I will be driving up tomorrow sometime, either late morning or early afternoon.

The rest of the day seemed kind of strange, to me. I am so used to having Linda and the girls here that with all of them gone (they left at about 14:30 (2:30pm)) the house is so very quiet. I watched a little baseball, but that was after the Giants had already won their game, so though it was interesting, it wasn't enough to keep me focused. Jason and I will have to pack up tomorrow morning (after I do get some exercise in this time) and then head on out. Jason is going to be driving up in his truck, so that should be kind of exciting, and fun, I hope. Thank you, for all the continued support and prayers. Take care and stay positive.

(apologies for the type-o's and mistakes - Linda isn't here to help with the editing duties she usually does for me).


  1. Oh what words of comfort from our Lord. Praying right now!
    Romans 8:15-18 For ye have not received the spirit of bondage again to fear; but ye have received the Spirit of adoption, whereby we cry, Abba, Father. The Spirit itself beareth witness with our spirit, that we are the children of God: And if children, then heirs; heirs of God, and joint-heirs with Christ; if so be that we suffer with him, that we may be also glorified together. For I reckon that the sufferings of this present time are not worthy to be compared with the glory which shall be revealed in us.

  2. Know that our Savior is always with us no matter what happens! Praying right now!
    Romans 8:35, 37-39 Who shall separate us from the love of Christ? shall tribulation, or distress, or persecution, or famine, or nakedness, or peril, or sword?...Nay, in all these things we are more than conquerors through him that loved us. For I am persuaded, that neither death, nor life, nor angels, nor principalities, nor powers, nor things present, nor things to come, Nor height, nor depth, nor any other creature, shall be able to separate us from the love of God, which is in Christ Jesus our Lord.

  3. Lifting up prayer to our Great High Priest!
    Hebrews 4:14-16 Seeing then that we have a great high priest, that is passed into the heavens, Jesus the Son of God, let us hold fast our profession. For we have not an high priest which cannot be touched with the feeling of our infirmities; but was in all points tempted like as we are, yet without sin. Let us therefore come boldly unto the throne of grace, that we may obtain mercy, and find grace to help in time of need.

  4. Unusual gap in updates. Praying that everything's okay.
    We may face many storms in our life, but we have an Anchor that holds fast!
    Hebrews 6:17-20a Wherein God, willing more abundantly to shew unto the heirs of promise the immutability of his counsel, confirmed it by an oath: That by two immutable things, in which it was impossible for God to lie, we might have a strong consolation, who have fled for refuge to lay hold upon the hope set before us: Which hope we have as an anchor of the soul, both sure and stedfast, and which entereth into that within the veil; Whither the forerunner is for us entered, even Jesus...
