April 26, 2015

Today has been one very relaxed and quiet Sunday. About the only thing we did, or maybe I should say, "didn't" do was go to church. I got up at about 06:30 and got out on my bike. I wanted to get in a few miles and managed to do 16+ miles. I returned to the house and fixed some breakfast for Jason and I, and then went up to see what Linda was doing. It was almost 09:00 and I figured she needed to get up, so that there would be plenty of time to go to church. What I didn't plan on was that she wasn't feeling well. I checked her out and she didn't have a temperature we needed to worry about, just that she didn't feel right, and she wanted to just stay down, and she did. By the time everything was settled it was well past going to church, so I just didn't go.

Other than a quick trip to Target, where I picked up a few things, and Jason taking the dogs for a walk, we all just stayed home. Kojak, Jason's new pup is still a little on the nervous side, though he seems to be slowly warming up to us. He's gotten a bit more familiar with the leash and doesn't fight it as much, so I figure it will take a couple more weeks, and then he'll be feeling more like one of the family. I have posted a picture (below), so that all of you can see what he looks like, and as a reminder, he is almost 15 weeks old now. What has really been a blessing ... he hasn't had an accident in the house, yet, and really enjoys going out side with Jason.

Linda went to bed early this evening, and I think I might turn in a little early as well. Tomorrow I will be going down to the DMV with Jason to get his disability plates for the van. With all the streamlining that has been done in the government offices, it now takes forever to get things done. We'll (Jason is planning on going with me) get there early and see how long it takes. Thank you, for all the continued support and prayers. Take care and stay positive.

    Oh the victory we have in Christ! Praying!
    1 Corinthians 15:54-57 So when this corruptible shall have put on incorruption, and this mortal shall have put on immortality, then shall be brought to pass the saying that is written, Death is swallowed up in victory. O death, where is thy sting? O grave, where is thy victory? The sting of death is sin; and the strength of sin is the law. But thanks be to God, which giveth us the victory through our Lord Jesus Christ.

  2. Oh what words of comfort from our Lord. Lifting up prayers!
    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.
