Tonight is my first “party” that I am hosting in our new home. I am SOOO excited to welcome the Sparks leaders from last year to come have a midsummer celebration of last year and a sneak peek at next year. I am looking forward to welcoming guests to our home to begin a new habit of hospitality in our home. (If nothing else, this habit will help to keep our home neat and tidy!)
I have also finished the second Eagle Scout quilt for a friend. We will be presenting it to her son tomorrow after church. I can’t wait to see if they like it. It is very much a brother quilt to the one I made for this Scout’s brother last year! I will post pics of it AFTER it has been presented to him tomorrow.
Other tidbits in our life: Luke is off earning a few bucks mowing a yard and then hanging out swinging his golf clubs with a friend. Micah is still recovering from his three weeks of intense activities. He’s currently taking a nap under his bed. Simon is prepping to go to camp with his best friend tomorrow. He’ll be gone for the week.
I am horribly behind on my seminary class. Summer is just not meant to be a time for serious academic pursuits! I struggle to get the motivation to read, think or write anything. I sure hope the grading is a bit lenient during summer term!
For those of you that are praying for my medical stuff – My MRI/MRA went just fine on Wed night. I am going in to consult with the neurologist on Monday, mid-day, to get the results. I don’t even know how to ask you to pray. Selfishly, of course, I would like them to see something that can be easily and quickly treated with ideal results. But more deeply than that I do desire that God be glorified in all things. I wonder at times if both can be attained, but I know that it is not always so.
Prayer warriors – please also pray for Luke just now. He is very much like a boat that has lost its anchor. He really seems to be drifting in and out of things that are not good choices. He very much misses his dad and has not yet found his way to anchoring himself in Jesus yet. I am daily praying that Christ covers him in heavenly protection until Luke finds his way to Him.
