I had a very full month and really year. So many ups and down. God has remained faithful and sufficient.
I moved into a wonderful new house on 12/20. I have unpacked, carried boxes up and down stairs for nearly one week. I also inherited a good stationary bike with the house. I have been riding it an hour every night too. All this exercise helped me get 2,007 fitness in December and exceed minutes I
Was able to go past my yearly goal of 20,000 minutes by 394 minutes.
My weekend did not go as I planned. I did not have a great attitude about it either. My plans to move into our house or Friday after I had taken off the day from school came to nothing, but I did give myself a headache. I has to reschedule the truck to devliver our boxes for Monday morning. This is the same day that my hubby will see his new kidney doctor. So, my assistant arranged for one of my support staff to come to my house tomorrow and wait for the movers to deliver if they come while we are gone. He met us at our house and did a walk through so he could know where to tell the men to put my various boxes.
Yesterday I spent the day on errands and getting ready for the Military Holiday Ball. We had a good time and it was fun to go out, laugh and sing some songs with others. I am posting a picture a friend took of us at the party.
Today we woke up to lots of snow, plus an email saying church services were cancelled today due to the conditions of the roads. I missed being in church today. We plan to go for Christmas Eve services this week and the weather is warming up some to cooperate with our outings.
We hope to get the heat turned on in our new pool this week. I am ready for a warm water swim. I really need the exercise routines again. I have gained some weight and I know it is mainly due to not being able to do the kind of cardio that I am used to doing.
EUROPEAN PEOPLES. The months characterized by short days and long nights have descended upon Europe. Darkness comes early each afternoon and remains until late in the morning. School children and workers head out before it gets light and often come home in the dark as well. Although electric lights and burning candles help to dispel the physical darkness, the spiritual darkness hangs thick and heavy over this continent. Intercede that Europeans will be drawn to the Light that can give them eternal life. “Then Jesus spoke to them again: “I am the light of the world. Anyone who follows Me will never walk in the darkness but will have the light of life” (John 8:12, HCSB).
These last few weeks have challenged my attitude and my faith. Tomorrow we are gettng the keys to our new house. I was not too sure that would even happen as planned earlier this week. There have been many tests of my patience and attitude with others too. The plans have all worked out well, and even betetr than I would have imagined.
We can't get into house right away, but our new landlord has paid for a room at a fabulous hotel in the same village. She is even sending her men to pick up all the boxes and belongings we have at the small place. We were able to transfer the tenants appliances and transformers into our name.
The rest of our shipment will come to the house on Friday morning. Everything is happening nicely now. The only thing that is now an issue is that my husband is sick again. He thinks he has walking pneumonia. God will take care of this too. He has ordered our move so well this week. I need to stay out of God's way and let Him be in control/.
My hubby was not admitted because the hospital does not have the facility for dialysis. Now we have to try and go on the economy to one, or he has to fly home to the states to stay with one of our kids while he has dialysis. We have to get an appt. for again next week to find the rsults of the labs that were done today. I know God is in control, but I wish He'd smooth these rough parts out for me!
I am getting ready to talk to insurance people on the phone. Please pray.
The snow is coming down hard, and Ramstein has closed due to the weather. I need to get on the road and get home safely.
