Monday Morning Musings
On to my musings:
1. I've been so happy the past four Sundays: Chapter 6 of the Gospel of John is undoubtedly my favorite Scripture passage. Yesterday, our pastor did a magnificent job of weaving in marriage and the need to center marriage on the Eucharist.
2. My doctor put me on a new drug for fibromyalgia, but the darn stuff made me so dizzy I was afraid to drive. That was disappointing, since aching muscles all the time are not easy to deal with. My essential oils have eased some of the pain, though.
3.Curly-haired daughter is getting married in 12 days! [insert slightly panicked scream here] Actually, she's got most of it under control, but Mom still has a bunch of last minute details to cover. Thankfully, I though ahead and took last week off.
4. The godmother of the bride-to-be threw the BEST SHOWER EVER! It was an "I Do BBQ" with the whole family invited. It was so much fun. The decor was perfect, we had actual fun games (like lawn Yahtzee) and so much love and care.
5. Prayers for a couple of things: one a special intention for me, and one that we can get our house re-financed. We had the re-finance all in place, then Dear Husband ended up in the hospital for 15 days. Now with the bills rolling in, the re-finance is looking shaky. We REALLY need this. Thanks!
