Early Sunday ...

Saturday was both extremes. First, I went to brother Billy Wilson's funeral which was very moving. The worship was beautiful as well as the family and friends speaking about Billy's life through their eyes. He had a full life. Fifty years of marriage to Ann and many, many grand children and even a great-grand child. As Pastor Don said, he left quite a heritage.
I had to leave early to pick-up Lauren. She took the ACT test. We then ate at Arzi's Lebanese Restaurant. Bryan's games were over around 2 pm so we all met back at the casa.
The second extreme was a wedding at 6 pm. Beautiful setting with a limited number of people invited. The food was incredible, but around the time to eat and just a little after the old cramping kicked in and we had to leave soon afterwards. You just never know with this stuff. You just have to be ready. I am thankful I was able to attend both of these extremes. You can learn so much with these 'rights of passage' so to speak.
Speaking of learning, remember that rat (dog) of mine Kenny that kept me up Friday night. Well, I go to unlock my door and there he was staring back at me - he had been loose in the house the whole time we were at the wedding. Thankfully, he held his movements with the exception of one area of toilet paper destruction.
Bryan woke up with nausea/stomach discomfort. So I am staying home from church with him this time. Robin missed last week due to similar problems.
This is a scripture a friend of Bro. Billy gave to us at the wake.
Psalm 1:1-3 NIV
1 Blessed is the man who does not walk in the counsel of the wicked or stand in the way of sinners or sit in the seat of mockers.
2 But his delight is in the law of the LORD, and on his law he meditates day and night.
3 He is like a tree planted by streams of water, which yields its fruit in season and whose leaf does not wither. Whatever he does prospers.
He commented that Billy was that man who lived according to the above scripture. That is one of the first scriptures I memorized right after I was saved. It is a good one.
Have a blessed Sunday with your family. George

Keep growing along with your veggies. I pray that the rumblings and cramps depart soon in a quiet manner. Keep the press running, oh scribe. Love ya'
