Another hot one! We are having unseasonably warm weather for September with temperatures in the high eighties or low nineties, then followed by chilly nights and days in the mid-seventies. Hot and then normal...Hot and then normal. I don't think the weather can make up it's mind.
Speaking of making up one's mind, we finally decided to head out to CT late this fall to attend a healing conference put on by Pastor Paul Teske who wrote the book, "Healing Today." It is a small conference in size and length, but it is "big" because we will be driving. Staying in hotels......eating out.....riding for hours in the car.....ALL things I don't do or enjoy! If we had a RV we would travel that way, but alas that is still a wish away. With my encouragement Joel called and talked to Pastor Teske this past week,, and that kind of sealed the deal. Two Lutheran pastors the same age who were in the military, went to seminary, serving congregations, plus speak in tongues and were healed overnight! We are excited to go and to also meet face-to-face my sweet friend Katherine, who is going to the conference. We look at it as investing in our lives.
Yesterday we went to the park for morning devotions. The annual Civil War enactment was being set up, but not many people were there yet. All of a sudden during devotions a cannon went off a short distance away causing us both to jump. A word came out of my mouth that I will not share here! Good grief it was loud! This morning Joel is down at the park checking things out and getting a good whiff of wood smoke as he described it. For reasons beyond my understanding he loves the smell of wood smoke.
Tomorrow the girl we fostered for 4 years is coming by with her family. We have not met her husband or children so it will be nice to meet them and catch up on Denise's life. We do connect on Facebook and at Christmas but it has been years since we have been together.
Did anyone see that little guy on YouTube and GMA who is 5 and plays the piano brilliantly. He has a photographic memory and some form of autism I believe. I miss hearing the piano played in our home. I cannot play, but our children all took lessons and our two oldest girls are exceptionally good! Last summer at the reunion they hosted, they played for everyone and I could have sat for hours and listened. My mom was gifted in the same way.
We are going to a fundraiser today for a friend who is battling Lyme Disease. She, like me, went undiagnosed for over 20 years. Thanks to Joel speaking about his healing from Lyme, she went and was tested and finally got the right diagnosis. It is great to see so much information being put out in the media now and also that the CDC is actually being forthright on the number of cases each year. They publically announced that they have underestimated the number of new cases each year and now say instead of 30,000 cases there are 300,000 cases!!!! NOW it is time to find a cure!
We watched a good movie last night called "Emperor". Historical, but of course with a Hollywood flare. It is about General MacArthur and General Fellers and how they helped re-establish Japan after the war. Very interesting I have not been reading much this week due to sinus issues causing dizziness. Yuck. This too shall pass. Still walking dizziness or not ~this week I walked 1.5 miles three times and a mile the rest of the days...Yay! Farmer's Market, a hair cut (she comes to my home) and a good house cleaning rounded out our week. So how was your week?
Until next time................
