Wanted to Write...

Wednesday, Feb. 10th. Not a lot going on right now. School of course, work, although mainly on the computer right now, forming my presentation for the Ladies Retreat coming up at the end of the month,...o.k. quite a bit going on. But I am not feeling overwhelmed at all, which I directly attribute to the Lord.

A couple of tests under my belt with school, am amazed at how quickly we get our scores back as everything is done on the computer, grading the scan trons and then the grades posted to our computerized blackboard for each class. Makes for a quick turn around time.

Valentine's day is coming up, need to either take the twins out to buy cards (not something I normally do) or get to making them a.s.a.p.

The Olympics are starting in just 2 days, we are ALL excited about it, Rob has been on the countdown for weeks now. It's the small things in life that make our household happy.

Jack has been counting down the days till The Lightening Thief is released which is also just 2 days away. He read the entire Percy Jackson series, then Rob read it, then I read it. It was a fun series. We are going to see it on Saturday morning, first showing.

Rob has a busy weekend as this is the Quail Hunt Fundraising Weekend for DRI. A lot going on out there. One of the "folks" passed on earlier this week from an aneurism, please keep the staff and the rest of the "folks" in your prayers. This gentleman passed with his friends around him all of a sudden, so there are some sad friends who miss him a lot.

I decided to buy the New Testament on DVD last week and ordered it from amazon.com, I bought The Experience, it is narrated by many familiar voices. I knew it would be a dramatic reading, which I like because it helps me stay focused and in the moment a bit more, but what I didn't know is that the voices transition from one to another every couple of minutes with a gospel song here and there in the midst of it all. I love it. If I would have known it was set up this way I might have opted for a different version, but I didn't know so I chose this one. What I like about it is that just when one voice becomes a bit repititious a new voice comes in and I am engaged again, then a song which might or might not fit the specific theme of the book starts up and after the song is over the scriptures continue. All of this has done a good job of keeping me engaged and not letting my mind wander too much. It is difficult for me to listen to the bible on tape and stay engaged, but this one does a great job.

Well friends, that is it, I don't have much to write about today, just wanted to write. God's blessings on you.
