Paul has almost finished the tree house. I will soon post pictures of that adventure. During the time that Paul was trying to devote to the project, we had problems with the pump and pressure tank on our well. Since all of our well water supply is used for daily living and running our air conditioning system, we went several days without both. We used the swimming pool for keeping comfortable and clean. Qavah may think of these days as some of the best in her life because she had plenty of pool fun with everyone.
I had a lunch meeting today with friends, and Paul Burton took Qavah to the hospital for a blood transfusion. I think Qavah sees him as a "prince charming" and was very pleased that she got to ride in his car to the hospital. We are all making preparations for a birthday party for her on Saturday. Next month we will have had Qavah for four years. It doesn't seem possible.
As the days unfold I have a sense that God has enjoyed watching us play, struggle, rejoice, and even cry. I feel His pleasure in all of daily life, even in the hardships that produce patience. The world is in such turmoil that the safety of His presence has been even sweeter.
Every word of God is flawless; He is a shield to those who take refuge in Him. Proverbs 30:5
