Having Fun with Your Stories

Katy is scheduled to see another doctor tomorrow about this pain in her back and side. Her GI doctor thought that it would be a good idea to look at her spine. He has suggested an MRI but it may be that another set of eyes will see something else. Although this is a hard time for her, she was able to wrap a couple of gifts today. I’m proud of her for getting up and trying.

From the little pet snowball to the worms, we have had a very good time reading your stories. Some of your tree stories reminded me of the time one of our relatives went to a cut-your-own tree farm to find a perfect tree. The one chosen had cute little pods attached to the branches as though mother nature had already decorated it. Once inside, in the cozy warmth, the little pods opened and infested the house with tiny praying mantises by the hundreds. I can’t remember which of our relatives told us this story, but I remember thinking, ” I’ll choose carefully now that I’ve heard that story.”

    I just remembered another verse to that song Lily posted. It comes between the two she posted.
    “Dear me, what a strange looking chicken is that;
    His wings are so long and his body so flat.”
    While Robin remarked loud enough to be heard:
    “Dear me, an exceedingly strange looking bird.”

    I’m not sure, maybe his body was “fat,” not “flat,” but neither word seems to fit.

    We’re still praying for you. I’m sorry that you’re having such a difficult time but I know that the Lord will be your strength. I was just thinking about another funny story…it’s sort of a continuing thing at work, actually. We’re having a bit of a problem with mice in our office. The mouse that we have *loves* chocolate. I think it’s a female mouse because of its love of chocolate. The mouse has eaten cherry cordial kisses–all of the chocolate and leaves the cherry. The same with Reese’s cups–it ate the chocolate and left the peanut butter. The real kicker was when it got into the M&M’s and ate the chocolate out of the middle and left the shells. It’s a smart little thing. ;)
    Love and prayers,
    Jen :)

    Yes, I remember that other verse now, but I believe it says “His wings are so long and his TAIL is so flat.”

    I’m proud of you, too, Katy, and praying always for His grace to sustain you. Bless Him with praise today! He is always worthy, no matter what our situation. Today I reread the Psalm that starts “How long, Oh, Lord, how long!… but see that it ends up with a long verse of praise - though the troubles continued - the faith was undaunted.

    Love, Aunt Lil

    Yeah, Lil, that makes much more sense! I can’t remember when I last heard that song!

    Katy, I hope the doctors will soon find a way to bring you relief. Praying for you always!
