July is almost gone and I can’t remember when my last “Week Gone By” post was put up. We have been probably as busy as some of you . . . and as lazy as some of you.
July for me had two hurdles which I have almost gotten over. One was that I was on call for federal jury duty down in Coeur d’ Alene, Idaho, for the entire month. That means I would have had to drive an hour and a half to appear before the judge. But it has been interesting — with federal jury duty (at least out here), you have to call every Friday afternoon to see if you must appear the next week.
Fridays soon after 3pm found me on the phone, anxiously waiting my verdict. So far, I have not had to report in! And as of this post, I only have one more day to be called in – since I got off for our vacation next week.
Second hurdle was teaching a couple character classes at our Idaho Girls Camp. Why do I worry about these things anyway? Especially since I found myself enjoying it! Next time, I must remember that. The girls were fun and engaging, and it blessed me to hear their questions and see their interest.
Now for the vacation. I can’t forget to tell you about our coming days of bliss!
We have been wanting to do something with just our little family for a while, and finally decided to visit the western coast. Lowell found us a little house on the beach and we are beyond excited to leave! Poor Logan told me that he knows he’s not going to get enough sleep this week. Whenever something exciting is going to happen, he says he can’t sleep. The child doesn’t know how well I can relate. I’m afraid he got that from his mama.
So we will be gone for most of next week, but will hopefully come back with lots of pictures.
For myself, I am planning on doing nothing except play in the beautiful sunshine and gets loads of sand between my toes. I suppose, however, that I will have to feed whoever yells the loudest . . . and perhaps change a diaper or two.
Once again, I have a pile of articles that I still haven’t worked my way completely through yet. Honestly, who has time to read in the summer? I am having too much fun gardening to want to sit behind a book or a computer these days. I’m lucky to even get a post or two out a week!
So here you go . . .
(this one is special since it involves our area of Idaho)
Also . . . here is a review of Silent Grief: Hope for Surviving Early Miscarriage – written by the couple who took over Kisses from Above.
At our church campout in June, we heard this song sang by a lovely church family. And we thoroughly enjoyed it! So coming home, we searched on youtube and found it.
WARNING: Once you listen to this song once or twice, it is extremely difficult to get out of your head!
Verse for the week:
I wait for the Lord, my soul doth wait, and in His word do I hope.
My soul waiteth for the Lord more than they that watch for the morning:
I say, more than they that watch for the morning.
