Monday Miscellany

Heading to bed on Sunday night with a to-do list a mile long for a busy week ahead. But I have not felt well since about 5:00 Saturday afternoon, and it seems to be a repeat of what happened earlier last week. Not really a stomach bug. But enough to slow me way down. But I'll spare you the listing of symptoms!

And I just found out that my girl's viola teacher, who has also become a friend as they've enjoyed some movies together (she's a sweet single Christian gal in her early 30's), is on a ventilator in ICU in a local hospital as the flu turned into pneumonia and then into ARDS (Actue Respiratory Distress Syndrome). She's stable and they expect her to be okay, but it's going to take awhile. If you'd lift her up in prayer, I'd be grateful.

On the bright side, my kids had a wonderful time at our church's D-Now weekend. My girl said it was the best ever. And GG, our exchange student, absolutely loved it. For me, it was a bit bittersweet as I realized it was the last one for my boy and the other guys in his group who have been together and had the same leader for these past four years!

And my man and I enjoyed a lunch date Saturday after we picked up my new minivan! I love it, although it's got lots of bells and whistles for me to learn! God's hand of provision and grace has been very evident throughout this whole process.

This has been making the rounds on FB, so I'm sure you've seen it, but since I am such a word geek and spelling fanatic, I couldn't resist posting it here!

Have a great Monday!

My niece sent me that video. Glad you love your van. Praise God for his faithfulness. Prayers said. And, I've got a dry cough, a tickle in my throat and a burning in my lungs.
