Tidbits

Just a couple of things to start off the week!!

1st - I'm not sure how many of you read my book blog - that may or may not be "your thing", but I am interviewing an author today! She is Nicole Baart - a local friend, adoptive mom, and wonderful Christian lady. This is her first novel and, having read it, HIGHLY recommend it!! I just want to put in a shamelss plug for this great book and friend!

2nd - We have kind of a rough "medical week" ahead, and we would covet your prayers. Our oldest goes in Monday for a catscan. He is having some sinus problems and we are checking, by the catscan, to see what can be done to help him - sinus surgery has been mentioned - NOT what we are praying for!!

Thursday, our middle son, Caleb, has surgery to take a spot off of his arm - we are hoping, again, that it is very minor - but it is a brown freckle/mole that has turned black and now has gotten quite a bit larger. When we found both of these things out last week, it was NOT a fun day - we spent a lot of time in prayer and yes, even cried a bit too. You just wish you could take them on yourself and not watch your child/children go through them, but we also know we have a big God who is TOTALLY in control and we will rest in that.

oh honey, I will be praying for you and your family.

When you said "you wish you could take it on for him" my mind went to what Jesus did for us, "He took it on"

When you are harvesting your crops and forget to bring in a bundle of grain from your field, don't go back to get it. Leave it for the foreigners, orphans and widows. Then the LORD your God will bless you in all you do.
