I Will Not Forget Thee...

The 23rd again....this number is forever imprinted on my heart. Is.49:15-16, Can a woman forget her sucking child, that she should not have compassion on the son of her womb? yea, they may forget, yet will I not forget thee. Behold, I have graven thee upon the palms of my hands; thy walls are continually before me. Others may forget Joel, but first of all the Lord will never forget him, our family will not forget him, and his mommy will never forget him. Joel is still continually before the Lord. The months just keep ticking off. That number will never fade from my mind. I love you still, Joel, I miss you!!!

We are back up and running....our new computer is here and working great! We are so grateful for the Lord's provision of several folks that the Lord used to provide for our family. Thank you to those who know who you are!!!!

Andrew DID IT!!!! Last night at the rodeo, Andrew made his first qualified ride and not only that, he WON first place!! And to top it off he won $39. You should have seen him...he was literally hanging off the side of the steer for a while without touching the steer with his other hand until the buzzer went off!! I thought at first he was "hung up," but he was hanging on with all his might! The steer did step on his arm and upper thigh, but he's ok, just sore. Our crew was "hooten and hollerin." Micah came out the chute well and had a few good bucks but was not able to stay on. I guess you can tell we kinda like this stuff!! I can handle steer ridin', but I think we'd better pas on bull riding, says me!! It was two years ago in Aug. that Elijah rode his first bull. Joel and Josiah were all excited about that night!

Saturday agenda... we are going to have a big church crew here tomorrow, like all the families will be here, around 60 folks! So we are getting ready for that, Terry wants to plant some fall garden things, and I have a few errands to run. I am trying to get creative and get the birthday stuff together for Caleb and Daniel on Tues. They are having either a "Crazy Composers Party" or a "Creative Composers Party." I guess I am trying to decide if I want it to be serious or not. They are working on a big project right now submitting composition music for a movie that will be entered in the Vision Forum Film Festival in Jan. 09.

I read about a little 3 year old that was diagnosed with neuroblastoma in July, so he is just starting to fight this beast of cancer. I know so many of you are behind the scenes prayer warriors.

I am so happy this computer is going....good-bye library folks, for now!!

The good thing about the 23rd, is the 23rd Psalm. It's a good one to turn to when feeling low. Praying for you. Welcome back to cyber world from the comforts of your own home.
