Third Times a Charm

You'll never guess. Hunter brought home a yellow today. Shocked I'm sure. I am hopeful that this will end the cycle of shall we say less than desirable choices.

He did however spill the beans prior to hearing from the teacher. We are making progress. I hope.

Apparently, we are neglecting the poor child. At least as he reports it.

Today during PE he told the gym teacher that he had hurt his arm and as a result had had surgery. This of course caused concern on the part of the teacher, given the amount of activity required during PE. She wanted to be sure that she was not asking him to do things that would further his injury.

In her diligence she followed up with Hunter's teacher. She was also unaware of the surgery, as surprisingly so were Paul and I. Imagine. So she too followed up with Hunter. He confessed that he had lied because he doesn't feel that he is getting enough attention. Pretty sure Dad can take care of that!

Walking in the Light

Wow! This year year has been a whirlwind to say the least. I am shocked we are near the half way point in February. Part of me wants to dance. If the start of the year is any indication of how it is going to go, I am happy it's flying by. I will usher in 2009 with bells and whistles.

Yet, I am humbly reminded that every day is a gift, and I need to walk in the Light. I need to let Him guide me through each day. I need to listen to His still, quiet voice...Yeah I know for me that's a stretch. I'm never still long enough to catch my breath.

As I write this, our dear neighbor of ten years is fighting stage 4 pancreatic cancer. I am awed by the faith she has in God. I am humbled by the fight she has within her to beat the demon we know as cancer. Hunter, in his six year old wisdom said to me, "Mommy, why are you sad? We are just going to pray and Jesus is going to make her better." The faith of a child and the living testimony of one who is dwelling in God's amazing grace reminds me to walk daily in the His unfailing light.
