short update

Car -- major major repairs. Very Expensive. The car won't be back until tomorrow. Guess I won't be getting my own computer for a little while longer.

Husband's Bone Scan -- not scary. Good prognosis. There is some arthritis, which is good news compared to our Worst Fears.

And, it puts the car repairs into perspective.

Today, I opened the paper and read about a man who was bitten by a bat last summer, and just died of rabies. He didn't even realize that he had been bitten. This makes me so so sad.

And I have been reading over at Presbyterian Gal's blog about the spreading fires in California.

There are many other things, small and big, to pray for, take action on, care about. It's hard to keep up with them all.

My confirmation students went house to house collecting food for a local food shelf tonight. They had fun. At every door they knocked on, polite, friendly people gave them non-perishable food.

It was my block.

We've got a car in our driveway that hasn't moved for a month. The car's in the condition that it take 1k every time we need to get it fixed...but we can't get a new one either... I'm feeling for you. I hate those car repairs.

Car repairs must be in the air. We are looking at our son's car sitting in the driveway i need of repair as well.

Glad to hear your husband got "god news" from the doctor.

Thanks be to God!
