December 20, 2014

Well, we didn't finish the Christmas Cards, like we wanted to. Tomorrow is Sunday so we'll just have to wait until Monday to get them in the mail. That means some of them (most of them?) won't make to their destinations before Christmas. May be that's a good thing, as people will still be receiving some mail after Christmas... ;-)

Linda was up early this morning, and that's after staying up late last night, working on the cards. I had pretty well done most of what I needed to get done, and because Linda wants to be sure they all get done the way they should be, she is doing them. Guys, and I'm one of them, have a tendency to want to just get it done, and women, Linda in this case, want to be sure everything is done correctly. The mistake we made was not getting started on them soon enough. Next year should be better.

I did get a short bike ride in today - Linda needed a paper cutter (her's broke) so I rode down on my bike to buy one. I got it back to the house and then decided to ride out to Costco to pick up a couple of things that would simply fit in my back pack, also for Linda. Apparently, when I made the first of the two trips I must have run over a small piece of steel, because I noticed the rear tire being a little low when I was getting ready to take off for the second trip. I didn't think much about it, as the tires tend to loose a little air over time anyway. By the time I had another 8 miles down the tire was flat, so I stopped to put more air into it and then another 1/2 mile and it was flat again. I ended up calling home and Jason came to pick me up in the truck. I did make it to Costco though, and I did pick up the items for Linda.

The rest of the day was spent finishing the cards and basically staying at home. Tomorrow we will be relaxing a bit and Linda and I are being taken out to dinner by a couple of friends of ours. I'd let you know where we're going, except I don't know; just that it is a nice restaurant. Thank you, for all the continued support and prayers. Take care and stay positive.

    1 John 1:1-4 That which was from the beginning, which we have heard, which we have seen with our eyes, which we have looked upon, and our hands have handled, of the Word of life; (For the life was manifested, and we have seen it, and bear witness, and shew unto you that eternal life, which was with the Father, and was manifested unto us;) That which we have seen and heard declare we unto you, that ye also may have fellowship with us: and truly our fellowship is with the Father, and with his Son Jesus Christ. And these things write we unto you, that your joy may be full.

  2. The Lord hears all who pray in faith according to His Will. Praying for you right now!
    Psalms 142:1-3a I cried unto the LORD with my voice; with my voice unto the LORD did I make my supplication. I poured out my complaint before him; I shewed before him my trouble. When my spirit was overwhelmed within me, then thou knewest my path.
