A quick update.....

Hello from Augusta, South Carolina! I'm spending the week staying with Mr. E's aunt who just had surgery. This has been quite a change of pace for me, going from a household of sometimes 6, sometimes 11 children, and all the needs, noise, etc, produced by those children, to a house with only two adults! I'm enjoying the chance to relax, visit, read, write letters, watch the food network, and even do some baking......it's been fun, but I'm sure I'll be glad to see the Es again tomorrow evening when they come to take me home.

The week had an interesting beginning. Monday morning Jenny, Joseph, and I headed off on the couple hour trip to Augusta. I was yawning and sleepy because I had stayed up too late the night before, then got up early to pack and get a couple loads of laundry done before I left. Jenny was yawning even more than me.....thinking back it occurred to her that she had accidentally taken her sleeping medicine that morning! The two of us couldn't stop laughing when we realized that and decided a stop for coffee was a priority:-) I'm happy to say we stopped for coffee, and made it safely here! Since then all has gone well.....Thanks for driving me, Jenny!

I'll end with some verses that have been running through my mind this week, and hopefully, Lord willing, will be back to more regular posts next week.

"Ye that fear the Lord praise him, all ye the seed of Jacob glorify Him; and fear Him all the seed of Israel. For He hath not despised nor abhorred the affliction of the afflicted; neither hath He hid His face from him; but when he cried unto Him, He heard. My praise shall be of Thee in the great congregation: I will pay my vows before them that fear Him. The meek shall eat and be satisfied: they shall praise the Lord that seek Him: your heart shall live forever. All the ends of the earth shall remember and turn unto the Lord: and all the kindreds of the nations shall worship before thee....they shall come and shall declare His righteousness unto a people that shall be born, that He hath done this."
~Psalm 22:23-27, 31

"Seek ye the LORD while he may be found, call ye upon him while he is near: For my thoughts are not your thoughts, neither are your ways my ways, saith the LORD. For as the heavens are higher than the earth, so are my ways higher than your ways, and my thoughts than your thoughts. For as the rain cometh down, and the snow from heaven, and returneth not thither, but watereth the earth, and maketh it bring forth and bud, that it may give seed to the sower, and bread to the eater: So shall my word be that goeth forth out of my mouth: it shall not return unto me void, but it shall accomplish that which I please, and it shall prosper in the thing whereto I sent it."
Isaiah 55:6,8-1
