Yup...haven't written for a while... have been busy with church, work, wall hangings, SS, and medicare. Our outdoor ministry is in full swing again, calling and sending information of spiritual retreats to churches in several states...work, everyday for 2 1/2 hours...made 3 1/2 wall hangings, so far (moose, bison, elk, wolf)...waiting on SS in our daughter's appeal...AND, just now medicare has been straightened out and the script part will be flowing smoothly.
We saw our yearly...every 5 years...movie last weekend, 'The Bucket List'. A good movie...laughs *and tears*. Also, would like to see 'Charlie Wilson's War', but...in 5 years we could just rent it or watch it on tv...whatEVer!
The winter has been fantastic! Usually in the teens or 20's...BUT THE TREES!!! The snow we have gotten has fallen softly with no wind; therefore, piling up snow on all the branches...just soooo BEAUTIFUL! Hope it's that way in a couple weeks during the Whitefish Winter Carnival. Friends are coming in on Amtrak and will be here for 3 days, so want them to experience that beauty.
Still praying for little Kennedy *and all the child cancer victims...such a devastating disease! Julie, who lost her little Kayla last month, is 'on the hill' in DC lobbying for funds for research of childhood cancer...also, praying for their success in their endevor during their journey thru grief. Sunday we celebrate 'Life Sunday'...preserving the life of the unborn/elderly/sick. God knew us before the world began...knows us here on earth...and wants us to be with Him in heaven. HE is the giver of life and HE is the one who knows when our lives will end...always in control...always a comfort!
