Yes, it's been a loooooong time

A quick update...

1. My husband's health is much, much better. Despite the surgeon's ominous prediction that there would be no return of pituitary function, he now has almost full function. The endocrine system is doing great, except for a slightly sluggish thyroid. This is a huge answer to prayer, and I am thankful for all of you who prayed for us.

2. Life has been busy. At times it has been both sad and stressful. I wrote, months ago, about "deep waters". While the waters are not quite as deep as they were, and we're not spending as much time in them, they're not exactly shallow yet either.

3. We are part of a wonderful fellowship of believers. I can't begin to describe what a blessing they has been. Did I mention that these people are wonderful?

4. Life has not been all stress and work. We've carved out time for fun and relaxation too, and made some hilarious family memories...and a few are even captured on video.

5. Coffee is good. Still. Always. That is yet again proof that the natural order of the universe is still intact.

6. I saved the best for last: Offspring #3 (aka, "the strapping young man") is ENGAGED!! But it gets even better. He's not just engaged to anyone; he's engaged to a terrific young woman that people can't seem to say enough good things about. We love her! Is that cool or what?

  1. Congratulations on the health report and the engagement! Both terrific news. We've had our share of weirdness in the past few months, with the drummer being diagnosed with ulcerative colitis and diabetes -- a sort of weird diabetes in that he appears to have been born insulin-resistant but it hasn't emerged until now.

    It's been a strange, but not altogether horrible series of events. Just unexpected.

    Glad to see things are looking up for you.

  2. Where could I get a copy of the Grace vs law series from the guy in Texas?
