Talk about a week of highs and lows!
Sunday night, Kathryne and Charles were invited to spend the night with friends, so the little girls went to grandparents and Jason and I had a date night.- The Good.
On Monday evening (Labor Day) we headed home from supper at Jason's mom and dad's and ran full on into a bad storm. Heading down a dark and stormy road, we were attacked by a falling tree- Bad.
No one was severely injured by said tree. I was covered in glass. I've never seen so much car glass. But, all of us were safe.- The Good.
Poor Big Red our van was totaled by the tree.- Really Bad.
My dad went in to the hospital for a heart cath. No major blockages were found, and he was released home with only medication.- Really Good.
On the way home from sitting with my parents in the hospital, Jason's car broke down, leaving us with no working vehicle.- Really Bad.
So, here we are. Jason has readied the van for towing away. He has (mostly) fixed his van. We are borrowing a vehicle through the weekend and need to go van shopping soon.
Here is my verse for this week:
“Hurry with your answer, God! I'm nearly at the end of my rope. Don't
turn away; don't ignore me! That would be certain death. If you wake me
each morning with the sound of your loving voice, I'll go to sleep each
night trusting in you. Point out the road I must travel; I'm all ears,
all eyes before you. Save me from my enemies, God— you're my only hope!
Teach me how to live to please you, because you're my God. Lead me by
your blessed Spirit into cleared and level pastureland.” Psalm 143:10 MSG
Very appropriate, don't you think?
