Thursday is the new Sunday

Well, at least it looks like that. Nothing new or exciting–love work, loving choir, kids are cute and wonderful, great husband. Still going to the gym, although the lunch hour doesn’t offer speedy training, it feels good. The garden will end on Saturday, it’s supposed to snow. We’re going to pick all the grapes and juice them, the carrots, what’s left of the corn, and, if it’s not supposed to have a real freeze, we’ll leave the squash out–otherwise they will all come in also.

I’ll pick all the plants and leave them where they are, we’ll clean out the coop and put all the litter on the garden. The hens gave 8 eggs today!!

I enjoyed conference and took to heart the counsel to be grateful and stop complaining. There is always a negative side, and yes we have stresses and problems, but the things that really matter are good. I think I’ll be able to make adjustments to my work schedule and set up a more long-term solution.

Also, we can’t believe it is happening so quickly–but there is already talk around the office–whisperings here and there and even a heavy hint dropped by the head honcho–that an offer from the Federal Defender may be coming. It will be contingent on getting the Bar thing worked out, but it looks like Heavenly Father is making good on all the promises and blessings we’ve been given in the past year.

And although many can’t understand why David would want to defend criminals, it makes me proud to see him so forcefully defend the constitution and the equal access to justice that this country was founded on. A true test of our values is to see if we still adhere to them when it is not convenient. And, how better follow Christ than to follow his example as an advocate for sinners? He didn’t just pay the price of the penitent, he paid for everything.

Anyway, we are very blessed. There is a lot of hope (and I no, I don’t say that just because Obama is up by 6 points). Really, even as the world collapses around our ears, I’ve never felt like things were more on track for our family.

    Yay for you guys!!
    I’ve been thinking a lot about you lately and I’m happy to read such wonderful news.

    Still completely jealous of your garden and chickens. I’m thinking of starting gardening in the spring, but it will be on a much smaller scale.

    Good luck on your upcoming concert.

    Good luck Dave. I now it is a cliche, but hindsight is 20/20 vision. Isn’t is nice to look back and realize, oh yeah. God has a plan. I’m hoping there is one for us out there somewhere too.
