November Happenings

We are having a little trouble with our camera, so no new pictures this time.
This month has been full of prayer for Stuart Merrill, and we give thanks that he is safe in the Des Moines hospital. Bill Jones, John's step dad is still in the hospital in Cheyenne, he is slowly getting better. We have had several tragedies in the church here, so more hospital trips and prayer. The thanksgiving service at the church was great. I cried thinking about how blessed we are here in America. When you think about what Stuart went through in the Ukraine, and how nice our hospitals are, we need to give thanks. A little sadness about the election, but we will be praying for Obama, no doubt. A lot of praise about Prop. 8 in California passing, that was a big victory.

Deborah was a flower girl in a wedding for one of John's coworkers at UPS. She wore the dress Christy made for Malia in her wedding. It made me think about Christy's beautiful wedding.

School plugs away and keeps us busy as usual. I did get a Facebook account, so I could see my high school's 20th year reunion picture. Can't believe it was 20 years ago!! I now have lots of friends at Facebook, and that is fun to see what is up with peoples lives and reconnect, especially with folks from the east coast!

I think that is enough rambling. God is good, and He never gives us more than we can bear. I am thankful to each of you that has touched my life in some way. You are a blessing to me, and are helping to shape my life into something more useful for Christ.
