Today is 22 years since the Space Shuttle Challenger accident. I still remember what I was doing when it happened…I was standing in the living room watching the launch, while talking to my sister on the phone. I was pregnant with Bethany. Brandon was upstairs sitting on the balcony, also watching the launch on the tv.
5:45 p.m….Well, Beth didn’t get to give blood. She’s usually anemic, but her iron was fine today. The problem was her blood was so thick, they could not even get any at all. She hasn’t been eating much and we do have a blood clotting problem in my family, so I’m afraid those things might be working together. If her blood is too thick, that means she isn’t getting good blood circulation anywhere.
4:35 p.m….I just went back to find the post with the slide show of Sandy our dog, from July. I was sending it to some friends at church that just had their “baby” Missy put down. But I got side-tracked by several other old post (like Ethan’s birthday post). I have to go back and laugh at them sometimes.
Beth didn’t work today since she’s having such pain in her foot, but she is gone right now to give blood.
I’m working on reorganizing our master bathroom today. I am taking out part of the cabinet under the sink, to put in some storage. Our house is 29 years old, and many of the original things in it have fallen apart. They were not high quality to begin with. We need to completely replace the sink and cabinet in the master bath, but that will have to wait a while. For now, this is a temporary fix.
Right after I went to bed last night, I had a thought that I almost got up to post…..
When the rapture happens, I wonder how many troops will disappear from our battlefields? And I wonder what impact that will have on the enemies?
I just got an email from DaySpring, with a framed print, that I am going to order for the Valentine Banquet. It reads:
Your Divine Valentine
A Valentine may play a love song for you, but God sings you the sweetest love song in the universe.
The Lord your God…will rejoice over you with gladness, He will quiet you with His love, He will rejoice over you with singing. ZEPHANIAH 3:17
A Valentine may give you flowers, but God sent you the most beautiful rose of all, Jesus.
I am the rose of Sharon, and the lily of the valleys. SONG OF SOLOMON 2:1
A Valentine may take you out to dinner, but God has invited you to the most amazing feast ever given.
Blessed are those who are called to the marriage supper of the Lamb! REVELATION 19:9
A Valentine may bring you chocolate, but God provides you with something even sweeter, His Word.
How sweet are your words to my taste, sweeter than honey to my mouth! PSALM 119:103
A Valentine may love you for a lifetime, but God loved you before you were born and will love you for all eternity!
Yes, I have loved you with an everlasting love. JEREMIAH 31:3
Beth has posted a video of a song Gabe wrote. He is the one whose parents’ house burned about 3 weeks ago. It’s good. You never know whose life God is going to touch, using things that happen in the lives of Christians.
I’m starting to get excited about the Valentine Banquet at church. I’ve been online looking at decorations at Oriental Trading. It will be Feb. 16. Our theme is going to be “Love bears all things,” from I Corinthians 13:7.
We are going to make these picture frames to give to everybody.
