The word abomination appears in 142 verses in the King James Bible. Of these, six are in the New Testament. Two speak of the abomination of desolation (in Matthew & Mark), three are in Revelation in descriptions about John’s vision, and the remaining one appears in Luke, which states in chapter 16, verse 15: “And he said unto them, Ye […]
So we gave Nate a phone for his 16th birthday. However, we didn’t want it to be too obvious, so we got a “prank box” to put it in. The one we got was for a “Megamaxx console game” (console not included) for doing chores. It has a link “for more information” on the box – http://www.gamemasterfuntimestorespot.com/store/gaming/electronic/consoles/recreation/brands/megamaxx/2009models/extremechores/itemnumber4314B – which doesn’t […]
Last night in church, we sang “Honey in the Rock.” It amazes me sometimes how certain things bring up very vivid memories. I can never sing that song without remembering a friend (well, at the time I considered him a friend, but I’ve lost touch and, with how things were and such, I somehow doubt he’d have any interest whatsoever […]
Robby had a migraine, so he stayed home today. It was kind of nice to be driving again. Although, driving didn’t really lessen the movement-sickness effect, so thankfully it isn’t very far from home to church. There was something else I wanted to write here, but I cannot remember what it was. I hate it when that happens!
Let’s see. Where to start! Well, we went to the doctor appt, and everything looks good and I have an ultrasound appointment Tuesday. We got to our friends’ house (where my children were) and when I walked down the hall to use her bathroom, I got hit with a horrible headache, which never DID go away yesterday. Thankfully, it was […]
I’m walking again! That’s such a nice thing to be able to do. I had an appointment with a “care coordinator” this morning to fill out paperwork, and I have an OB appointment tomorrow morning. I’m very tired from getting up at 6am; those of you who know me, know that I am NOT used to getting up that early!
Fifth day of the fifth month of the two-thousand-and-fifth year… cool, huh? Ok, so, update. Robby found me a used wheelchair at a thrift store, but I hope I don’t need it. I would if we go much of anywhere, because I still can’t walk far, but I *did* walk to the mailbox at the end of the driveway, and […]
I’m doing a little better, as evidenced by the fact that I’m here – at least briefly. My leg is still swollen, though I think it has started to go down a little, and my sciatic nerve is still pinched, but all-in-all, I feel better. I appreciate the prayers of those who prayed for me through this, and of those […]
Thankfully, I am home now. First of all, last Thursday (4/21), I may have already mentioned my scare with my leg turning purple and swelling, then going back to normal… I had trouble walking, but was otherwise ok for the next two days. Things went along pretty much normally. Sunday morning, we went to church as usual. I leaned on […]
Overall, it was a very nice trip. The weather was beautiful during the day, and it didn’t rain at all (though one night was quite windy). The only time the cold-at-night was a problem was getting up 2x to potty! My brother showed up about 4/5pm on Friday, and we spent a little time with them but they left about […]
I have decided that I dislike tinted windows, and driving after dark. When we are driving, I like to be able to look at the people in other cars, and both of the above foil that effort. (I also dislike mirrored sunglasses for a similar reason – I like being able to see eyes. You miss a lot by not […]
One of our customers sent us to Florida this week! It was very nice. I got to visit with one family whom I had never met in real life before (knew from internet), and also with some friends who recently moved down there. I wrote this to some friends yesterday: We left our other hotel this morning (hungry – despite […]
I dreamed I was riding in a school bus that my friend Jean was driving, and another school bus drove up beside and in one of the front seats was a girl I went to school with in 6th – 7th grades, named Dena Sedlock (I’m sure that isn’t her last name anymore)… we didn’t get along that well in […]
A comment said, That’s just CRAZY! 😉 Not that I’m knocking a well-placed hug at the appropriate moment, but to love ALL hugs?!?!?! LOL!!!! Like I told the commenter in an email – I cannot think of one hug in my entire life that I disliked. There were a couple awkward ones (due to the hug-ee being a non-huggy type) […]
…about our trip to Mississippi! On Wednesday, March 23, we drove down to Mobile, AL, where I got to meet one of my friends (whom I “met” online a few years ago and this is the first time we got to meet in person)! It was a very nice visit. We left there and went to a hotel – only […]
