Wow! So what has happened to Jason and his family? Let me begin with a trip up to Fallbrook, to check on the progress of his house. We met with the builder and cabinet people and went over a bunch of layout questions, as well as the typical "Form - Fit - Function" issues that come up with any build project. Some of the issues were very spot-on, in wanting to know if the work areas (be it kitchen or in one of the other rooms) were going to work for Jason, especially since he is always going to be in a wheelchair. As it turned out, there were a couple of changes needed, and it also gave Jason a much better idea of what he should expect. There were also a couple of simpler questions on our end of the house, and those were taken care of, or ... we need to get some information back to them soon after we return to San Diego (yeah, we're still up in Livermore right now).

Since I brought up Livermore - We have been enjoying the hospitality of Debbie V., a friend of ours who has allowed us the wonderful gift of being able to sleep at her house, and come and go as we need. This has really made it easier for us to visit with other friends and to spend some time with our two sons, George and Sean. Heck, the primary reason for us to come up this time was to see them and to celebrate George's 38th birthday (you really don't start to feel old until your kids get well into their 30's, then you just wonder where all the time went). We went and saw Bill and Jane N. and had a wonderful visit with them today, and Linda went and had a "girls luncheon," without me hanging around. Tonight we'll be taking Debbie out to dinner, and then tomorrow we go back to the former church and then head back home - sort of.

We will be heading back down tomorrow, late morning, and then stopping at our son David's home. We haven't see them in several weeks, and we need to get a little face-time with our grandsons, Dylan and Ethan. The plan is to spend the night there and then early Monday morning, head back on down to San  Diego, where we'll see how well Jason did. We have had a few conversations with him, and he continues to sound pretty good. and we're confident that Joselyn has been helping him out, so we don't expect to find any surprises. About the biggest surprise is that we really don't have that many pictures to show for this visit, and you know what - sometimes it feels better to not take pictures of each and every things you see.  Once we're back down in San Diego I will be getting back to a regular blogging pattern again, so thank you for all your patience. Thanks, also for all your continued support and prayers. Take care and stay positive.

  1. Glad you're having a good time!
    The only true hope comes from the Lord! Praying in Seattle!
    Romans 15:4, 13 For whatsoever things were written aforetime were written for our learning, that we through patience and comfort of the scriptures might have hope. (13) Now the God of hope fill you with all joy and peace in believing, that ye may abound in hope, through the power of the Holy Ghost.

  2. Praying right now!
    Psalms 27:1, 4-5 The LORD is my light and my salvation; whom shall I fear? the LORD is the strength of my life; of whom shall I be afraid?...One thing have I desired of the LORD, that will I seek after; that I may dwell in the house of the LORD all the days of my life, to behold the beauty of the LORD, and to enquire in his temple. For in the time of trouble he shall hide me in his pavilion: in the secret of his tabernacle shall he hide me; he shall set me up upon a rock.
