morris weekly hearald !!!!
A few pictures of the job site in Ada. This was several weeks ago, so a lot has happened since then!!!!
Sometimes it feels like I am just giving a " newspaper report" with nothing exciting!!! But we are normal people, with mundane days of stuff you all do too....laundry, food, cleaning,cooking, school. Lord willing one day when the Lord provides, in His time, there will be lots of excitement......engagements, marriages, babies on the way, new places, but all in good time and according to His will. Personally I can hardly wait til the dominoes start falling!!!!! Maybe I should take applications.............JUST KIDDING!!!!!!! We wait, we pray, and repeat until He shows and guides!! But thats not to say "things" are not happening here and around us......like today at Bass Pro, I was exchanging something and as I drove in the parking lot, there was tons of police and important people in black......come to find out the police arrived on the scene of a guy shooting himself after he called 911 and reported all that he did. Of course the situation could use prayer. Then the other thing that happened today, Josh fell off the 4 wheeler and got knocked out, scratched his face all up, not good! He was riding with Andrew taking deer corn out and they hit a bump and Josh flew up and off. Sad thing is Andrew did not know he fell off and after he discovered it, he went back and Josh is laying all crumpled up on the ground. I think he is going to be alright, just shook up and his head and jaw are hurting. We are watching him carefully!
I have to be honest, the days ahead are permanently engraved in my mind 4 years ago. The 20th was the Dr. visit where we heard the Dr. say "this is not what I expected" (concerning his blood levels) and I so remember sitting in the chairs as the nurse set an appointment for the hematology specialists. It is NOT a blur, its so vivid. From this point onward, the days are etched in my mind. Its so easy to fall prey to "ifs," but by His grace I will seek to see Jesus, His Sovereignty and trust Infinite wisdom, hard, but a must! Like I was telling Micah about his buck incident yesterday morning, even God makes the hinds to calve and as He is in control of that, even more so He is in control of our lives, our days, our breath. All is under His control! and that brings comfort!
Well, tonight, playoff football game. I wanna go but I do not wanna be miserable. I told Terry I would let him know bout 6pm, so I can check out the temps. :) Looking forward to the weekend of being together and also helping our church serve a Thanksgiving meal to the community on Saturday.
The house building is coming along, Caleb has some walls up, Daniel is a bit behind him because he has been in Ada verses Caleb being here in OKC and able to work on his in the evening. Very exciting for sure!
Billy headed to Mississippi to see his family for the week, so "hi" Billy and Gilmore family!!!!
We will spend our Thanksgiving with Terry's family. Lots of people, lots of food, lots of football...on the screen and on the field, lots of fun, laughs, acting totally crazy...speaking of two Uncles!!!!! Hope everyone has a great Thanksgiving, but I will try to get back here the first of the week. My dad is coming to "do" Christmas with the children on the 2nd, so you can imagine the excitement they already have!!!
The cabinet guy was delayed because of the door guy, so hopefully right after Thanksgiving...he said. :O
