been a day, for sure
Wife's not doing too well, which is not that unusual. Has to "watch" the Beloved Great Niece tomorrow. Niece and husband and the Great Niece were off all weekend on a campout. Real camping, in a tent, at a state park camp site about 90 minutes from here. They left out early Friday afternoon, leaving their dog for us to take care of. I've been taking him from the house, tying him out, bringing him food and water, taking him on long walks (yesterday's was about 1-1/2 - 2 miles), and taking him back in when he starts barking and disturbing all the neighbors. They're back, so the mutt is their responsibility.
We're crashing real early, ate good and I washed up, and she's ready to collapse. So am I.
Church services this morning were, well, unusual. We had a couple visitors, former members I believe, who live a good distance away but were in town due to the death of his brother. Had a very intense and, I think, useful discussion in the Sunday School time. I think the Lord is moving something and someones, in that. Perhaps that includes me. We shall see.
The Old Testament passage is Psalms 79, 80, and 81
The New Testament reading is verses 1-18 of Romans 8. Romans is one of my favorite books, and the section we are in today and tomorrow is some of my favorites in Romans.
