Well, the winter yuckies have finally got to me. Actually I'm on the back end of the whole sick thing and that's why I'm actually blogging today. I have slept so much the last several days that I'm surprised I can sleep at all at night. Actually I didn't sleep much last night but I'm up with coffee in hand.

It never fails when something big is about to happen here in the ministry the ol' devil turns up the heat. Last week was a nightmare with trying to run our two bus routes. Actually I didn't get to run my route and 5 people weren't able to come to church, I was so sad. Anyhow, after locking our keys in one of the vans while trying to jump off the other van, the nightmare mounted. The we came home after the small church attendance and found that our new fridge had decided that it didn't want to work any more and all the meat and stuff inside had spoiled. Oh Joy! Then the next day I became sick and during my 3 day stand I watched a small stomach virus make it's way through the house. Wow, when it rains it pours. Anyhow, it's all okay. I have learned to Praise Him even when ol' slew foot is attacking.

Well I'm on the upswing and the van is in the shop, the virus is gone and the fridge is chillin'. God's good, the Devil loses and all is well!

I'll be back soon with a new post! Have a great end of the week!



  1. So glad your better! So glad the devil lost!!! Praise the Lord for working in people's hearts in Croatia!!!

  2. It's sure been a winter of challenges! Viruses, storms, frigid temps and other natural events have placed many of us on the sidelines. Thank God He's still in control.
