Off to Indiana

Howdy - off to work for a few hours and then we head out to Indiana around noon. Pray that our weather holds out - please, no snow.

I will be posting haphazardly the next few weeks - so have a MERRY Christmas and enjoy your family this holiday season.

Last full dat this year

Greetings - we had a pleasant dinner with Cindy's brother and wife last night reminiscing about Cindy's mom and just good ole' visiting. Thank you God for memories of past events and loved ones.

The funeral for Irene is Saturday and viewing on Friday. We leave tomorrow afternoon to head up there and after the funeral on Saturday we head toward Texas. Unless God changes our plans again.

Proverbs 16:9 NIV

 In their hearts humans plan their course,

but the Lord establishes their steps.

Good night Irene

You probably have heard, but Cindy's mom, Irene Miller, passed away yesterday morning. Quite frankly, we're still in shock as she seemed healthy except for the Alzheimer's that was bad, but not as severe as we had expected.
No funeral news yet - we're assuming Thursday, but if you are interested give us a call as we should know later today what's happening.

Romans 6:23 (NIV)

For the wages of sin is death, but the gift of God is eternal life in Christ Jesus our Lord.

Vacation day!

Good afternoon - we had a great vacation day!

Shopping and errands over in Mt. Juliet and just got home again. Heading off to church in a little bit for our live nativity - what a fun time of year!

One more full week and work and then - Christmas Vacation!! Next week should prove interesting - the guy I work with just gave notice and I'm wondering how much of his stuff I'll inherit - life is good!

Have a blessed weekend!

Friday! No Thursday - hey, it's my Friday!

Salutations - starting off in the teens again this morning (weatherwise, that is) - let me tell you, that's downright cold!

Mostly paperwork today - got a new contract yesterday and need to get that project going today. I hate holiday projects - my vacation won't truly be a vacation - get ready for the calls and emails! Oh well, work is still work!

Have a blessed day!

To infinity and beyond

Good morning - we enjoyed the Christmas parade last night - Cindy and I think it was the first time we've been in a parade and not in a band.
Tons of meetings today and off to Somerset this afternoon. Lots of good things going on.
I love this photo of Rhiza helping Kaireia on something Kaireia was working on. These sisters sure love each other.

Well, back to work - can you believe we are already in December? In just a couple of weeks we're heading out to Texas for almost two weeks to visit family and friends - we're putting our request in now for some warm weather.
A good but busy week ahead - Our church has a float in the Cookeville Christmas parade tonight - tomorrow Somerset, KY- Friday a huge bid due and then off to Nashville and back Saturday. So hang on, we're off and running!

Psalm 1

Blessed is the one who does not walk in step with the wicked or stand in the way that sinners take or sit in the company of mockers,
but whose delight is in the law of the Lord, and who meditates on his law day and night.
That person is like a tree planted by streams of water, which yields its fruit in season and whose leaf does not wither—whatever they do prospers.
Not so the wicked! They are like chaff that the wind blows away.
Therefore the wicked will not stand in the judgment, nor sinners in the assembly of the righteous.
For the Lord watches over the way of the righteous, but the way of the wicked leads to destruction.

Everyone is home again

Greetings - did you have a wonderful Thanksgiving? My folks are still in Florida, but Reed's family made it back home from Oregon and Rachel's family made it back home from here. Even Cindy's brother and sister-in-law made it back from St. Louis.
We enjoyed kith and kin - those kids are growing like weeds and we enjoyed them. Yesterday we put up stuff and cleaned and crashed - family takes a lot out of these old geezers! Have a great Sunday!!
