Ever have those times in life when things just don't go right? It's so easy to see all that is going wrong and lose sight of the many reasons we have to give thanks.
The concert was awesome. It was a bit unsettling that there were no chairs in the place. I had resigned myself to standing as much as I could of the foot pain and then going out to wait in the van while my friends finished enjoying the concert. It was so good of my friend to hunt down the manager in the madness and bother him to death until he scrounged up a folding chair for me to sit on. That was a great relief.
The kids had a wonderful time at the concert. They handed out DVDs of the performances as they were leaving and included on the DVD was the entire NIV Bible in mp3 format. Isn't that just awesome?! Bless Billy Graham Ministries for doing that.
I still have no water in my house. We are planning to buy this house in two years and the landlord is reluctant to fix the pump. Turns out that parish (county for most of you) has run water lines out here and we can buy that service. Tomorrow morning I'll head over there after dropping my youngest (Melanie) off at church for her week at church camp. After paying them the $400, they'll put me on a list to get water. My landlord is also one of our elected officials, and he says he can get it done tomorrow. I hope he's right!
After irritating my foot Thursday with the long day in court and then not using my recliner, and the foot getting swollen, and then all the walking and standing last night, it was very vocal about being angry with me today! It has been very painful. I did not exercise at all today and I hate that. Walking to the bathroom has been painful. If it still hurts tomorrow, I will try to get in to see my wound care specialist again. It can't be good that it's bleeding again.
I'm so tired. I'm sorry this has not been an uplifting entry. I still have 70 Spark emails to wade through before bedtime. I daren't let them go until tomorrow. So I'll say goodnight here. I hope you've had a good weekend (with nothing broken!) and that you face a week of blessings ahead.
