Day 231 (January 19, 2015)

Jessie got a bath.  We went to an 8:30am doctor appointment for Jessie.  Jessie has had a bump in her bones for time out of mind, but we just didn’t get her to the doctor.  The doctor said it was routine and wasn’t anything to worry about.

The doctor’s office was a stone’s throw away from where Jessie’s oldest sister was born 23 years ago.  I can still see us walking across the parking lot to the car with our first baby.  It seems like yesterday.

We went shopping for clothes for the funeral.  Due to patience, I got Jessie a pair of leather “duck” shoes that we’d seen before, but didn’t like the price. They were now on clearance.

We mailed the boys’ birthday presents (a dress shirt and necktie).

Tuesday afternoon we went to laser hair removal.  It wasn’t for me.  It wasn’t for Jessie.

After that, we went to a funeral visitation for a church member at a church where I used to preach.  The lady was about 85 years old and she was a card. One time, she confronted a burglar in her house in the middle of the night.  She told him to get out, she didn’t call anyone, and she went back to bed.

We went back to the house and put the vanity in the bathroom.  That bad boy weighs almost 300 lbs.  Two of the drawers are broken, so I called the manufacturer to get replacement drawer slides.

I had wanted to attend the funeral for my grade school friend Richard.  But, the funeral is four hours away and I’m committed to preach the funeral for the lady just mentioned.

There was some frivolity that evening.

I talked to daughter and friend about courting, as it’s spelled out in the Bible.

We read Bible.  We prayed.  We thanked God for the day and asked Him to forgive us of our trespasses as we forgave those who trespassed against us. We’ve slowed way down in reading Anne.  She’s not as fun now that she’s an old married lady.  Day 231 was over.

Blessings:  Knowing amazing Christian saints and celebrating their lives. Having help to move a 300lb vanity.  A good report at the doctor.  Kind people in customer service who are willing to make the broken stuff you buy right.
