Showers

Today is a showery day. A light mist has been falling off and on all day. But that hasn't dampened our enthusiasm. Kathryn and I were invited to a Bridal Shower this afternoon. We prayed that she would feel well enough to go because the bride-to-be is very special to us. By one o'clock we knew we would be able to go, so we got all dressed up and went! It was wonderful to see the bride open things like a vacuum cleaner and get so excited. We hope Neil and Aleah have a wonderful life together and that they will love and honor God with their lives. I also won a beautiful scented candle to bring home to remind me of this special day.

Paul stayed home with Qavah this afternoon. She is still running a fever but it has been staying down around ninety-nine. Her eyes don't look as glassy today and she even wanted to get dressed this afternoon. We have been praying over her several times a day. Last night we woke her up to give her some medicine and she asked us if she would be better "tu-moaw-wow." We told her it was possible and assured her that our prayers mattered to God and He was listening. She said, "I don't like being sick." That's a simple statement and one we can all relate to.

Kathryn and I have been trying to finish our Bible Study in Psalms before Passover. Before we know it the day gets away from us and we are behind schedule to finish. But we are learning a lot of good things about the Psalms sung by the chosen people on their pilgrimage back to Jerusalem each year. They remind us that life is a journey, and with every step, God is with us.

All dressed up and ready to go to the Bridal Shower:
