Prayers please

My sweet little great-nephew, Michael, has had serious brain issues. He had a tumor which was partially removed through an operation last year.

He has been having chemo radiation therapy once a month to shrink the remaining portion of the tumor. It was surrounding his optical nerve and couldn't be completely removed.

On Thursday, April 30th, he will be having another MRI to see if the tumor is shrinking and then later that afternoon he will have another chemo treatment.(Two weeks after that his Momma will be having a C-Cection to deliver a baby brother for Michael, please pray for her too.)

Please pray that God will cause the tumor to shrink and no damage to the optical nerve has occurred.

He is such a sweet little babe.

I know that God can work miracles. I've seen Him do it.

Ah, Spring!

I hung my clothes lines today. In honor of this springtime rite of passage, I'm reposting the rules, for those of you who don't know them already...
1. Wash the clothes line before hanging any clothes. Walk the length of each line with a damp cloth around the line.

2. Hang the clothes in a certain order and always hang whites with whites and hang them first.

3. Never hang a shirt by the shoulders, always by the tail. What would the neighbors think?

4. Wash day on a Monday...........never hang clothes on the weekend or Sunday for heaven's sake!

5. Hang the sheets and towels on the outside lines so you can hide your 'unmentionables' in the middle.

6. It doesn't matter if it is sub zero weather.............clothes would 'freeze dry.' (Too wet in my part of the world!)

7. Always gather the clothes pins when taking down dry clothes. Pins left on the line are 'tacky'.

8. Hang the clothes up so that each item does not need two clothes pins, but share one of the clothes pins with the next washed item.

9. Clothes off of the line before dinner time, neatly folded in the clothes basket and ready to be ironed.

10. IRONED?????????? Well, that's a whole other subject. I'm off to play with Boo...

On again...

Bear's Chaplain packet will go before the board on the 13th of May; our anniversary and also two years to the day from when Bear got out of the military to pursue becoming a Chaplain.

We are very excited that the packet has been pulled out of the recruiter's bottom drawer and will be submitted.

It is with much prayerfulness that we have gotten to this point, and we are asking for prayer during the selection process.

God is indeed sovereign and we are trusting Him for the outcome.
