Kathryn and Qavah

The girls have had their challenges this week, but they are both looking better and feeling better. Kathryn has been working diligently on the wound on her shoulder at the site of her old Hickman line and it is looking a lot better. A three hundred voice choir will be singing Verdi's Requiem tomorrow afternoon at the Roanoke Civic Center and we all want to go. Although it is the rehearsal before the Monday night performance, the goal is to sing it all the way through Sunday afternoon from two to four o'clock. Tickets are five dollars at the door with open seating. We have been praying that the Lord will give us a good night and that we will be able to attend the concert as a family tomorrow. Paul Burton is singing in the choir. It's such beautiful and heavenly music that I just want to sit and soak in the beauty of it.

The Women's Brunch was a joyful event. I have always liked to attend events like these because women pay attention to the little details. The tables were decorated with miniature rose bushes and I was given a yellow one to bring home to Kathryn. I enjoyed meeting many new people, and saw some familiar faces, too. My merciful Heavenly Father gave me strength, and I've thanked Him for that. Except for a swollen cheek I don't think anyone would have guessed how much dental work I had done yesterday.

I am turning my attention toward sundown and Sabbath Rest. Next week I have to schedule surgery for myself to correct the problems in my jaw. I don't know what all I will have to do, but that is something to think about next week. Tonight it is good to be at home, happy and content. I wish you all a wonderful day of delicious rest tomorrow. I'm sure we all need it because our Heavenly Father instructed us to take it.
