File it Away

I wrote out some thank you cards today and boxed up Christmas decorations. I have been reluctant to update the post because I loved going right to the pictures of our weekend and reliving it all. But with this post it will be filed away and pulled out when I need a lift. The good times are filed away for just that reason. As David said in the hard times in Psalm 77:11 "I will remember the deeds of the Lord; yes, I will remember your miracles of long ago."

Kathryn's mouth is healing so slowly but it is getting better. Qavah had a transfusion yesterday and today she is "full of herself", as they say in the South. It was a very happy day for all of us. I will find out tomorrow about the genetic test that will be done on blood taken from Qavah and sent to the University of Washington. They will test just the white cells so her transfused red cells should not confuse the test. Even if it does not give us answers, we are praying daily for a lasting remission. I do a lot of begging in my praying. I'm glad the Lord tells us to ask over and over, otherwise I would feel as though I were nagging.

Paul Burton bought us a three month gift certificate to NETFLIX for Christmas. NETFLIX is a company that has thousands of movies on hand that can be accessed and played on your home computer. I have to say we are in danger of becoming couch potatoes. When we talk on Paul's lunch hour it is to review which movie we will watch when he gets home. So far we have enjoyed several mystery series. When Paul comes in from work we have dinner, pack lunches for the next day, wash the dishes, then hit the sofa for a movie. It's like having a date every night. Bliss!
