I learned a lesson from a child today

I saw a little boy from church at the grocery store. 

 

Our eyes met and he said, "Don't you go to Southside? Will you be there tonight?"

 

So many times I'll see someone in the store that I know, but I look the other way because "I don't have time." It really doesn't take that much time to speak to someone and even ask them about church. I love God's little lessons!

Update on Uncle Gary!

Uncle Gary got to come home today.  He was hardly able to talk, but I got to talk to him a little bit.  My dad said Uncle Gary was grinning the entire time!  Oh I love it!

Today is my Mamaw's birthday, on 9-11.  A bittersweet day in my opinion.  Mamaw is my uncle's primary caregiver.  As his mother, it has been hard on her to see him suffer as of late.  What a wonderful birthday present it was for Uncle Gary to come home!  The Lord knew she needed that today!

I had to work today so we can meet a deadline on Tuesday.  I was afraid the day was spent, but as soon I got home I worked in the yard.  Rain interrupted my work, so I came in and cooked supper.  Afterward, I washed FIVE loads of clothes/bedding! 

I feel accomplished.  Thank you, Lord!  Lastly, I'm praying for those still suffering from 9-11-01.  I cannot imagine the hurt they experience day after day.

Please Pray!

Please pray for my uncle, Gary.  He is battling cancer right now and it's really taking it's toll.  After a week in the hospital for a blood clot, he had to be taken back by ambulance early the following morning.  He was vomiting blood and was gasping for breath.  I talked with my dad on the phone and he said Uncle Gary is stable right now, but still critical. 

My heart is torn.  I want to be there so bad but have entered a very busy season at work and if it got worse after I went and came back, I would have to travel back again.  It's a nine hour drive to Kentucky.   My dad has advised that I wait....I trust him.

Please pray for my uncle and our family during this time.  It breaks my heart.  I love my uncle so much.
