A Time for Everything

Ecclesiastes 3:1 NIV

There is a time for everything,
and a season for every activity under heaven:

In this season of my life, it seems as though every activity under heaven is taking place at once. My head is twirling around and I’m not sure what to focus on at the present.

Today, our ladies Bible study is wrapping up with spring tea. What a joyous season it has been to study the Word of God with such wonderful women who seek after the Lord.

We’re preparing for my oldest son’s high school graduation coming up in a few weeks. I just wont admit that I’m that old. We’re having a big celebration with lots of family coming to visit.

My youngest son, is a big fan of baseball. This is the last week of regular season, but next week is all star try outs. It wouldn’t surprise me a bit if we go another couple of months in all star games.

Also, we’ll be taking a trip to Six Flags in San Antonio soon as my youngest son won this trip in a recent Bible Drill competition.

The kitchen remodeling project is just about complete. YEAH! Praise the Lord! I haven’t cooked a great home cooked meal in many weeks that I’m not sure I remember how. Or perhaps it’s like riding a bike and it will come back to me.

Also, coming in June is our 20th wedding anniversary! We’ve been so busy with the boys and projects that we’ve failed to plan adequately for ourselves. I’m open to suggestions on how we can celebrate 20 years on a tight budget (college cost lots of money) & not much time to make reservations.

Blessings in Christ--

Congratulations on all of it! My oldest and middle son both graduated last year, We celebrated our 20th back in January, Our oldest just got married last weekend and Joseph finishes 8th grade on friday and has his 14th birthday on saturday. Can I breath yet???? No, of course not, I get to have a 40th birthday this year! As for suggestions, We went to a really nice restaurant with 4 other couples. We went to P F Changs and then to the Cheesecake Factory. It was a lot of fun and not too bad on price. We had wanted to go to Fredericksburg for a weekend, but with wedding plans and so on, we will do it another time. Enjoy, whatever you do! Just remember the love that brought the two of you together and has kept you together for 20 years. That's an accomplishment these days! Congratulations again, Love Karen
