Back in business with DSL

Saturday, June 24th, 2006 8 pm

My phone line is not letting me get on line so I did this post on Microsoft Word for whenever it gets fixed. This is the second time I have had trouble with my phone line since ordering DSL. Equipment problems try my patience more than most things, ain’t it just supposed to work?
Kids – Basketball - two day team camp and I mean all day till 6 pm. Glad that is over but they had fun.
Dad is doing good according to mom. I also talked to Aunt Eva from Alabama – she calls frequently to check on me and the treatments. I wish everyone had an Aunt like her.
It rained where I am, did it rain where you are? Just like I had requested, no flooding but a good deluge for about a half hour. The lightning was incredible! The only thing now is the grass will be growing and need cutting sooner.
Everyone is liking the buzz cut, Robin thinks it should be maybe a little shorter. We will see.
Psalm 24:1-The earth is the Lord’s and everything in it, the world , and all who live in it … Who may ascend the hill of the Lord? Who may stand in his holy place? He who has clean hands
and a pure heart,
who does not lift up his soul to an idol
or swear by what is false.
He will receive blessing from the Lord
and vindication from God his Saviour.
Now that sounds like a good deal to me, how about you? Be sure to go to Church – somewhere, and if you don’t have anywhere to call home, come check out Hosanna. It’s located on Goodwood Blvd across from Womans’s Hospital at Airline Hwy. Services start at 10:15 am. Sunday school at 9:15 am.
God Bless.

Well, here I am sorting out why this thing is not working yet. We have no dial tone at all now. So a technician is coming by Tuesday to troubleshoot the problem. The DSL software, filters and modem arrived today so I was excited thinking I would be back in business. Patience grass hopper, patience.
Please check your smoke/fire alarms in your home. My mother has a good friend whose house caught fire while they were sleeping early Monday morning. By the grace of God the wife woke up, smelled smoke and was able to wake her husband and they both made it out safely. They think it may have been caused by an electrical malfunction. Almost a total loss.
Movie critic corner: I went with the kids and their cousins to the movie “CARS”. It was cute with great computer animation and a good message. The main character had to come to the realization that the world does not revolve around him and that he does need other cars to have a good life. Recommended – but I did wear ear plugs since the movie people either think we are deaf or are trying to make us deaf since they possibly own stock in hearing aid companies.
Psalm 25:12, “What man is he that feareth the Lord? Him shall he teach in the way that he shall choose.” And verse 4, “Show me thy ways, O Lord; teach me thy paths.”
Teach us LORD. More later. God Bless – George.

The phone / internet service is almost running as it should. We are still having trouble with dialing out on the phone, but the internet connection is very fast now. Above are some posts I typed into word until I could get back on the net. That is kind of like eating fresh bread 3 days later - it just is not as fresh - but it still kept me documenting whatever was going on. Today was busy but good. I felt pretty strong today except for a couple of hours after breakfast. I had to get a correction on my attitude from Robin. I was getting frustrated over some personal business that I did not have a clear answer to, so she called me out on it. It eventually worked out, praise God. Usually, if you give stuff like that some thought and time, it will work itself out on its own. The Word says to 'cast our cares upon the Lord'.

The bald thing takes a little getting used to. I had no idea how much heat your hair conserves or how much insulation from the sun it offers. It sure is user friendly when it comes to getting ready - just wipe and go. I guess I'll get used to it. Brandon and Pastor Terry are proud. Where's Paul Wallace when you need him? Eat your heart out Telly Savalas and Ule Brenner, there's a new bald guy in town!

I am going to cut it short and pick up tomorrow. God Bless and have a great day. George.

Don't worry George Paul will be there on Sunday. We are back. We will be back at Hosanna this Sunday. Can't wait to see your new hairdo. Tell Robin hello. Sent your blog out to a friend in New Iberia to read and catch up on some good wisdom. See you soon The Wallace Family
