A brief one today.
Today is the day that Dear Wife "watches" the Great-Niece. And it's also the day that the local public library branch has a "story time" for the pre-school kids. Big thing, and when there she's allowed to check out a few videos. Yes, this little one, about to turn 4 years old, already has a library card. So we take her while her mom and dad are at work. We had an addition on this, her cousin (wife's nephew's daughter), going on 5 years old, wanted to go and her mom couldn't be bothered, so we made a diversion and picked her up too. Off to the library, the kids had a good time, I returned some books and got a few out. Then back drop off kids.
Got home. To observe in our next-door neighbor's drive a police cruiser, lights on. Another in a drive across the road. A Fire/Rescue squad parked out front. And an ambulance as well. Neighbor's brother told me that his brother, the resident, had a heart attack, a big and bad one.
And we were just informed that the victim has expired. Very tough. Had just gotten married about a month ago. Now ............
The next week, at least, is going to be pretty tough.
Tomorrow is Pearl Harbor Day. It still echoes, it still matters.
And tomorrow morning we have an appointment with an agent to settle on a Medicare Advantage plan. It is the very last day to make any changes until this time next year.
And we have received word that the one drug that Wife gets from a local pharmacy has been received there, so we plan to go by and get it. That is made possible only by virtue of a very generous gift from the church. Wife's meds are many, some quite costly, absolutely required. And our means are not great. To say the least.
But God is good.
The Old Testament reading is chapters 7 and 8 of Daniel.
The New Testament passage is chapter 5 of 1st John. Good stuff.
