My life makes it’s boast in the Lord.

                                        Psalm 34:2

For God did not give us a spirit of timidity (of cowardice, of craven and cringing and fawning fear), but [He has given us a spirit] of power and of love and of calm and well-balanced mind and discipline and self-control.

 

                                                                                                       2 Timothy 1:7

 

A lot has been going on lately. Today I am going to a funeral. My Sister-in-law’s (my brother’s wife) Mother died. She was diagnosed with lung cancer just after my Dad was diagnosed. Her cancer was the much more aggressive type. Ricke( my Brother), called us Monday that she had been put into hospice and was given a week to live. He called back on Wednesday to say she had passed away. We will also going to see my Paw Paw since we are in the area.

 

 

My nephew William broke his wrist in football practice on Tuesday. He is very upset that he will not get to play until it has healed. He just started playing in a new position. He now plays offence. I think he said he was playing half back. His coach told him William you are not the truck driver, you are the truck. Go run people over. You have to understand William is in the 7th grade and is not quite 14 yet, but he is over 6ft tall and weighs 220 lbs. He is not fat either he is solid. He looks like an senior in high school. His brother Scott started high school this year and they were walking around during registration and the high school cheerleaders were trying to get him to do something with them. If only they knew they were hitting on a seventh grader.

william That is William with his Mom. This picture was taken two years ago. I know its shameful I do not have a more recent picture of the boy. His team had just won the the league championship.

 

 

Steve’s new job is going good. He just started getting on the road this last week. He has lots of training to complete along with the hurricane that hit Houston. That is is daily route.

 

We have started going to a church near the house. It is a great church. They do not preach watered down scripture.  The people are real nice and the pastor is very friendly. He stopped by the house Tuesday night to get to know us a little better. We are going to become members of the church.

I press on toward the goal to win the [supreme and heavenly] prize to which God in Christ Jesus is calling us upward
