I am glad to report that the heavy-duty medicines, like the Cipro antibiotic, appear to be making a bit of headway however small, on Dear Wife's condition. We'll be watching this closely during the 10 days of this regimen, and for a while thereafter. We are grateful: when we went in to the doctor, we were fearing the worst, that she was in to kidney failure. That is one, just one, of the several potential fatal situations we seek daily to fend off. She was able to use the bathroom in a more or less regular fashion today, which had not been the case recently, particularly last weekend and over the early part of the week. It's one of those things that most of us take for granted. Until there is a problem. One of those things we generally forget to give thanks for. So, perhaps, we have -- temporarily -- dodged a bullet.
We are now at the last Sunday in the month of February. A week from now, the calendar predicts the 5th of February. The astronomers tell us that today will be 9 hours and 59 minutes +. So Monday should see us receiving more than 10 hours of daylight. Every day, a little bit better.
It's below freezing point here all day, and likewise tomorrow. The weathercasters tell us that we may see a "high" of 35° on Tuesday, then back below freezing. But above zero, which is something.
Our former home should see 57° today, and a high of 71 on Tuesday. Much better to my way of thinking.
The Lord is making known His commands and judgements.
Our day's passage from the New Testament is verses 1-16 from the 20th chapter in the Gospel of Matthew. Jesus is upsetting some of the hearers' understandings of what it means to be the people of God.
