Praying for safe travels for you, Nillapepsi. I am hopeful that your MIL will have full recovery.

The hyperbaric therapy is being done to try and save my hubby's feet and yo prevent further amputation. So far it is working, and his right heal I starting to recover well . I am thankful that the MRSA is gone.

We are celebrating at our daughter's house tonight with three of our young grands. My hubby goes on his PD dialysis machine around 8:30 pm, so that hinders much of what we plan to do.
A quiet celebration is just fine with me! emoticon emoticon

Enjoy your gym time and make god choices the rest of the week.

May The Lord bless and keep you safe in your celebrations.

Sandy

emoticon & emoticon all around. I could use a few myself this morning. We got a call late last night that hubby's mom was taken to the ER -- possible stroke. After running some tests, probably not a stroke, but instead a diabetic episode. Hoping that's the case. We're going on a road trip today to see her & get details.

Blessings,

Sandy I pray you will have safe travels. I imagine it will be hard to leave your hubby again. I am off to classes at the gym this morning. No special plans for tonight or tomorrow. This thread will be closed after today and the new one is already posted.

It is so cold here today, so I am not certain I will get many steps in today. My hubby has hyperbaric chamber therapy five days a week. That usually takes our morning. I only have one more week before flying home to Germany. I intend to enjoy every day I still have. I am trying to make good choices, but it is still hard when there are so many temptations in the pantry.

Happy New year!

Thank you for the prayers. I made it safely and had a good visit. SHe was having a good day.
WHen I got home I was exhausted. I am not really supposed to drive that far alone. My sleep doctor advised me against it. WHen I got home I took a nap. Usually I can not ever fall asleep during the day, but I fel right to sleep and slept til my hubby got home.

Blessings,

I need prayers today. I am going to see my daughter. It is a long drive and I am unfamiliar with the roads. I never know what kind of mood she will be in (she is bi-polar among other issues). I am trying not to eat my way through the stress involved.

Elayne, that sounds nice---will miss the one at my church as I will have my gd and we are not allowed to take her to church. But we will go to my dh's church later as his is at 10 PM.

Good mornin' everyone. It's nice and warm here in Fl. but a cold front is coming in tonight.
We're all ready for our Christmas Eve Service and I am so looking forward to it. Our choir anthem is "Mary Did You Know." The service is Lessons and Carols. We have the kids who are acting out Mary and Joseph and the little shepherd boy. We are singing (which means the Joyful Tones are playing) 10 carols.The pianist and I are playing 2 carols for the postlude as people leave the sanctuary. We are doing We Wish You A Merry Christmas and Silver Bells. We have our Pastor's blessing to do this .We want a happy ending. I play alto sax.

Tomorrow is also our 34th wedding anniversary. Don't know where the years have gone.

Well, I better get going as I'm meeting a friend at Curves to work out.

Have a great day everyone. emoticon emoticon

Yes, this year is coming to a close---it started out in a whirl, took a nosedive, and then slowly improved by the end of summer. My son got married in January, my mom had a stroke on Valentine's day, then in rehab and then at my house for several months, I slipped and tore my menincus in June but waited til July to finally go the doctor, went thru therapy for the next few months, then back to work with a horrible 7th period but now out of that class so my schedule is not so rough---so it was more upbeat at the end.

It is supposed to go into the 60s today. Too bad I have so much wrapping to do. Maybe I will try and take a break this afternoon and get a nice walk in.
It was not a family member who passed away, but an old friend.

Blessings,
Ruthie

Ruthie- how sad for the family to have a family member die during this season.

Yeah for the last day of school for lots of people!!

I am really enjoying this 50 degree weather even with the rain. Today I am driving two hours to care for my twin grandsons while their parents attend a party. Fun times!

Good morning! The funeral yesterday really was a celebration. We saw some friends we had not seen in years.
It has been really cold and snowy here all week - now the report says on Sunday it will be 70!!! Crazy, huh?
I hope to start wrapping gifts this weekend. Time is slipping away. I am taking time each day to remember what the real meaning of Christmas is.

Blessings,
Ruthie

That is something I don't understand---people who have to take their pets everywhere.
Last day and then I am on Christmas Break for 2 weeks---I think the staff is more ready for it than the kids.

emoticon Hi everyone. Sorry I've been missing a while. But I'm here today. Missed choir practice last night along with 7 others. I am much better today. It was my allergies and sinuses. All better today. Went to Bible Study and we had a party and no lesson. We get back together on Jan.2. Have a rehearsal with our instrumental group called Joyful Tones at 4 today to get ready for Sunday and Christmas Eve. We are playing 10 carols Christmas Eve. Yea! Love them all. And, it's also a very special date for another reason. It's our 34th wedding anniversary. Yep...We were married at 9 pm in between two services that were 7 and 11 pm. That was in NE Pa. and it rained, snowed and then sleeted all day and night. We were married at my in-law's home and my husband's Aunt was there with her poodle named Tony. Tony went everywhere with her. A very friendly dog, but he got too friendly with our minister's leg as we were saying our I Do's! My brother-in-law to be was trying to softly kick the dog off the minister's leg. Later the minister just laughed and said, "Tony was just being friendly!" Luckily the minister was a friend of the family.

As I scroll down catching up I see there are a lot of needs here. I am adding all of you to my prayer list. Sandy, I continue to pray for your husband and that you will be able to return stateside with work here.
I am going to a funeral today for an old friend. I know it is always hard to lose a loved one, but this time of year must be especially difficult.

Blessings,

I am glad you are feeling better. I am taking my hubby for a follow-up appt. for after his hospitalization last week. Then we are headed to another specialist appointment.
All of this will be accomplished while it is pouring rain. I am choosing to be thankful in ALL things today.

I work at a Department of Defense school for military children. I am the principal of a school for pre-k-5 and just under 1,000 kids on a campus of 10 acres. It is a school with a high population of special needs children, and I supervise 116 adults. No stress at my job! RIGHT! I have two wonderful APs that are running the ship while I am here. Our kids are having major issues too this week. I am feeling guilty that I am not carrying my load.

Today is my days for errands and grocery shopping for the last minute ingredients for my grandson's teacher gifts.

Sandy, what kind of school do you work at over there? Sure hope your dh continues to recover---will pray for him.
Having a rough time at school this week---bad kids are really acting up---think they really want some extra days off---geez, wish they would just stay home---a lot of the trouble makers are failing anyhow and we can't get rid of them---makes no sense---and they are uping age that you can quit school---now it is 17 and they are talking to raising it to 18---which I am trying to figure out how they can graduate if not 18 then? Keep me in your prayers this week---esp. noon time as I deal with the kids sent out of class for that hour.

Good morning, team! I have been busy for the last two weeks caring for my husband. He had a very rough night last night. His foot where they amputated is finally starting to heal. I am very concerned with his right heel and pinky toe, and so is his surgeon.
I have two more weeks in the states befor returning to my school in Germany. My bosses are looking for a school for me in the states, but it probably won't happen until June.

I love being here with my family at Christmas. Have a blessed day!
Sandy

Good morning everyone. I have been missing in action for many weeks. Life has just been hectic and crazy. I am dealing with a lot of issues - all family related - and it drains my time and energy. I am believing the New Year will be a new beginning and things will settle down.

Hi everyone. Had a great service this morning. Then I came home and got a call from a friend and we went to see another friend who is in rehab after knee surgery. She is doing very well and will be going home Friday. So no, I didn't get my cards done. I will stay in all day tomorrow and write them out. Tomorrow night is our High School's Christmas concert and members of the community have been invited to sing the Hallelujah Chorus along with the chorus and band. Should be awesome.

Have a good night everyone. Time to go and watch tonight's game. Go Steelers!

I did some cards last night---I like that Christmon tree idea---might suggest it to our church and we can all pick up those themed ornaments after Christmas on clearance so that we could have a good supply for next year.

I am so sorry that happened to you at your church. I can see where you wouldn't want to stay. It must be hard on you to go to another church alone. I'm glad you are going somewhere though and can use your gift of singing in the congregation for now. We have a great Pastor and he lets the music director and the Joyful Tones do what we want. He feels we know the music better than he does. So our choir director picks the Invitational hymn and the choir anthem. Our lead singer picks the rest. We can suggest a certain song if we want to though. I'm on the Worship Team and we help our Pastor plan the services and esp. the special ones like Christmas Eve. We have 2 trees in the sanctuary. One is the Chrismon tree with all white and gold religious symbols and the other is a regular tree done in red and white ornaments. They both look nice. The Chrismon tree has white lights and the other tree has colored lights.

Well, have a good weekend. I'll be busy tomorrow and Sunday I have to write out our cards and get them in the mail Monday. I'll write them out while watching the football games. emoticon

OH, that sounds wonderful! I used to be on the praise team and some things happened and we were all taken off---and someone lied to us and afterwards I did not feel I could trust the pastor---so I left---my dh is still going there---he won't leave---so I go to a different church than him---I don't like that but I just cannot be under someone I cannot trust---and my dh ushers for both services and with not being on the praise team, I don't want to be there for over 4 hours and sit by myself---my ministry is song so I really miss it---the church I attend now is just too small for a good group---but I do my part in the congregational singing and the Lord blesses others thru my singing that way.

Lecates,

We sing 2 praise choruses right together without a break in the beginning of the service. Here is what we're doing this Sunday.

Call to Worship: O Come all Ye Faithful and For He Alone Is Worthy.
Choir Anthem: Mary Did You Know?
Second Praise Chorus after our Devotional... What Child Is This?
Offering music.... Hark! The Herald Angels Sing
Invitational Hymn...The First Noel
After the Closing Prayer we play The Family Of God each week and the congregations sings it as our Pastor and his family are walking to the back to the church to meet and greet people as they are leaving . We then have coffee and cookies in the fellowship hall afterward and a good many people do stay for that.

On Christmas Eve we are singing/I'm playing, 10 Carols.

I'm in a group called Joyful Tones and we play all the music.
We have an organist, pianist, lead singer, choir director who sometimes plays flute, a 16 year old drummer and me on alto sax. We are a very close knit group of musicians who are playing for God's Glory, not our own. Music Ministry is my passion and love. It's in my blood thanks to God for giving me the gift and my Dad , who was my private music teacher and started me on Sax when i was 9. There was a 4 year period I didn't play in my adult life, but I am back playing now as if I never stopped. When I did play professionally, I was known as "The Gospel Sax Lady!"

Well goodness, this turned out to be a long post. Hope I didn't bore you! Have a great weekend.

I too would love to hear that music more often---what upsets me at church anymore is that they might do one or 2 Christmas songs each Sunday in December----really, we do the praise songs for 11 months and why they just don't do the Christmas Carols in December is beyond me.

Had our rehearsal for Sunday' s service and the choir anthem rehearsal last night. What an exciting time of year for good music. All those beautiful carols. I wish we could have Christmas all year and enjoy the music. But I know we would get tired of the carols if we listened all year. We can have too much of a good thing and it loses its meaning. emoticon

Same here, but no delays or closings---and I was able to get to Sam's club to get some needed items when it was not super busy.
Wish I was there to join in the singing.

Back from rehearsal and it was great. The kids are super. Middle and high school. At the concert the band is going to be playing the Hallelujah Chorus with us. My friend and I were the only ones there from the community. I'm glad we are supporting our friend Luann who is the music teacher/chorus director.

I live nearer the ocean so we don't get a whole lot of snow here unless it comes up from the south--thankfully---and now it looks like it won't do much here tonight---the skies are much clearer.

Good afternoon, Looking forward to a rehearsal tonight with the HS chorus. The concert is Mon. the 16th. Any community singers have been invited to sing the last song..The Hallelujah Chorus in flash mob style.I am so excited to be a part of this. A friend and I are going and we sing alto.We can either be in the audience or stand with the chorus. To blend in, all will wear black.I am pleased that the chorus is allowed to sing it since it's a public school.

We had a big ice storm with lots of rain Sunday night into Monday morning. When I got up this morning, all the stuff that had melted yesterday had frozen overnight. Right now, we are getting snow, sleet & rain.

No snow here---thankfully, but we might get some wintry mix today---hoping for a delay in the morning. How are the rest of you fairing?
