At Covenant of Grace Church, Pastor Dirk continues preaching through Genesis. Trying to calculate how many notepads to buy, Tami emails:
At present speed, it will take Dirk 5 years and 7-8 months to get
through Genesis. :-)
This is based on it taking approximately 12 weeks to go through 2
chapters. There are 50 chapters in Genesis. This would take a total of
300 weeks to finish. Divided by 52 weeks, that is 5.769. So only 5
years, 4 months to go!
Personally, I think Tami is being rather optimistic. I'm wondering if I might have children living in my home at this very moment who may never find out that the Israelites actually LEFT Egypt :-)
Speaking of church, we had a FABULOUS Italian meal after the service today. We have some great cooks in our church family. But the best thing today was the baptism of little Gage.
I'm going to spend the next couple of days in Fort Worth visiting my mother and other family. When I get back, there will just be a few countdown days until our school routine begins. I'm looking forward to it even though I'm a little nervous that the house still isn't as orderly as I'd like it. The painting and trimwork has taken a little longer than we expected due to weather, sickness, etc. but we're not too far from being finished.
CJ had another MRI last week and now waits for yet another consultation for next steps. Sometimes it seems that it will never end...and yet we continue to cling to the One with the only real answers. Thank you to those who have faithfully prayed for us for over two years.
The Papa has been busy this week planning the next family vacation. Yes, I know we're just barely home from the last one, but some of our kids didn't get to be with us and he is determined to remedy that. In August of next year, we will head for the Smoky Mountains and a lovely lodge near Pigeon Forge, TN, that sleeps 25. As it stands now, all of our children and grandchildren will be in one house for a week, and if you know The Papa you know that nothing makes him giddier than that prospect!
Oh, and a HUGE WELCOME from all those at Granny's House to baby Caleb Cambron, the newest addition to our circle of friends!
Hope you have a great week...I'll be back after a short break...
