(NOTE: This is rough, but going to post it as it is getting old. Started watching the 3 kiddos below again and am tired.)
Hello family and friends. I know its been awhile since I last wrote something. (And its been a few days since I typed that!) At the last post we were deep into espanol and congegating verbs and all.
But things have changed.
First of all, he came:
Oscar is our 14th grandchild, 6th of the male kind. He came on the 17th of July and his sisters ADORE him. (That's an understatement.)
I have been on "maternity leave" from my paid nanny job, but have been enjoying seeing my gkids (all 5 that are in town) more often. It's does a grandma's heart good.
Not sure where the summer went. I know, I'm old. We all think time passes too quickly.
In the mean time, we had taken a break with our formal Spanish tutoring for July. When August finally arrived, our maestra (teacher) felt she was too busy with her new responsibilities at her real job. Bummer. We do miss you Michaela. And our espanol is getting weak again!
I'm still doing some with DuoLingo, but its not the same as having a person to correct my pronunciation and sentence structures.
No more movement toward Cuba either. Not sure if we dreamed a calling to there or truly "heard" God's words. More prayer is definitely needed.
So I've been waiting for something, anything to write about. Too long a wait, I know. I continue to work for Tiny Hands International sending out One Girl Prayer Bracelets. Check out our updated web site at www.tinyhands.org and if you are led to pray for the interception of girls and boys being trafficked out of Nepal, India and Bangladesh, purchase a bracelet. I'll be the one mailing it out to you.
I am doing an on-line Bible Study this Fall because I wasn't sure if I could make it to a study after watching a newborn again. I'm truly thankful for Liz Curtis Higgs for putting together the book, videos and emails. Its almost like being at a study. "It's Good to Be Queen" a study on the Queen of Sheba. Who knew there was that much to unpack? (I know, God did)
My Saturdays are rather lonely as Hubby heads out to sell hotdogs at the Husker games. He even has t-shirts available: You've Been Dogged by the King. I think he forgets that he sells at the games for free admission. But if you need a place to relax and chat, I'm usually at home here.
Pray for us as we reevaluate Cuba and language studies, etc.
