Tuesday March 30, 2010

We have returned from the land of no-internet. 🙂 I will upload some pictures soon from our adventures in California (I know, I know – I could have visited so many of you, but trust me when I say we literally had no minutes to spare – maybe another time!) this last week. For now, I just wanted to say hello and get back into the net world. I am trying to catch up on everybody’s lives, and it’s hard. I guess a lot happens in a week. We did have a simply lovely time, and although my hubby was working (he presented at a techie conference in San Jose), we had lots of time to enjoy God’s creation, some relatives, and good old family time. I even managed to survive plane flights – if you don’t already know, I have a fear of flying, so it’s a big deal. 🙂

Now I am catching up on life: bills, laundry, email & voicemail, restocking the ‘fridge, etc. Steven is getting caught up on work, and Gabriel is getting reacquainted with his toys. 🙂 I also have a bunch of music rehearsals coming up, as we are preparing things for Good Friday and Resurrection Sunday. I love Holy Week. I had hoped to try doing a Seder meal this year, but am not sure I’ll be able to pull it off. We have parish fellowship that night, and my husband is leading it – so perhaps I will put the Seder off until next year. I am excited to be working on harp and organ this week, and might even get to do some piano (the easy way out!), but we’ll see.

I will also be preparing for another round of infusions next week. It feels like that is coming up too quickly, but maybe that’s good.

Also, today we are remembering our sweet Glory baby. When I mentioned it to Steven earlier, we almost couldn’t believe it has been a year since he left us.
Glory Hesed, your mommy & daddy will never forget the brief time we were able to spend with you in our home, and we will forever be blessed by your part in our family. We love you and treasure you, and pray for strength to endure the days until we are united once again in bliss. We know the Lord is keeping you, and we know you are blessing Him. xoxo I love you, Glory baby.

Psalm 71:8
My mouth is filled with Your praise,
   and with Your glory all the day.

  1. I’m glad you had a safe trip, to and fro. I’ve never flown since I was 2 (shock!) so I don’t know how I would handle flights… maybe someday I’ll find out.
    I’m glad you had a good time with relatives and enjoying God’s creation.
    Thinking of you and praying for you, daily.
    Hoping that the next round of infusions will go smoothly, and be painless for you. Let us know the dates so we can pray especially for that on the day(s).

    It is hard to believe it’s been a year since Glory left you.
    *hugs*
    Lots of love.

  2. @yourfriendjc – Thanks, Sam. I was thinking of trying to bump into you girls, but things got so busy & then I wasn’t feeling well, so it just wouldn’t have worked out. Another time, I hope. 🙂 My infusions will be Monday & Tuesday next week – thanks for the prayers. I hope you girls and your family are doing well. I know spring is super busy for you all! Blessings and joy to you.

  3. Melissa, SO good to briefly meet you Sunday!  It was a providential opportunity to put a face to some of my prayers.  I look forward to witnessing what God does in your life, both in you and through you.  Blessings, Hope

  4. @Hope Brownlee – Thank you, Hope! It was so delightful to meet you. It just really made my day. Thank you for being so sweet and encouraging, and for your prayers ~ what a blessing! I certainly enjoyed meeting you and seeing your sweet children. God bless you.

    Hi 🙂

    Ah well, that’s okay. It might not have worked out for us either; we’re quite a bit north of where you were staying, I believe. But  maybe someday, we could meet! 🙂 The Lord knows.

    Praying for you on Monday and Tuesday; especially!

    Yes, we are all doing well. Staying busy for sure; housecleaning, yard jobs, babysitting and also all the various activities around our place. We’re getting a lot done though and it’s been wonderful to see all the accomplishments. God is good!
