Tickled to be Pickled!

It is a crazy time of year. Going so many places....where are we going? Doing so many things...what are we really doing? Modern convince doesn't often seem convenient. The refrain for today's Divine Hours is:
"The Lord loves those who hate evil; he preserves the lives of the saints and delivers them from the hand of the wicked."
Aren't we glad we are preserved by God. According to Dictionary.com the word preserve as a verb can mean "to keep alive, to make lasting, to keep safe, to keep up, to resist decomposition, to maintain and reserve for later use" Amen! During all this craziness of going when we feel like there is not enough time in the day, hours in the night, or strength to make it through..we have this promise.
HE RESISTS THE SAINTS DECOMPOSITION

HE KEEPS UP THE SAINTS
HE RESERVES THE SAINTS FOR LATER USE
HE KEEPS US ALIVE
I don't know about you but I am glad to be pickled! Praise God Regan's seizures have slowed down and has barley had any in the past few days. Ryder had his band concert Tuesday Night and his band tour on Wednesday. He is first chair trombone. God has given him a gift. Rylee is feeling better and they both have their church music performances on Sunday. Brian is wrapping up another semester. Pray for his strength. I am trying to finish up with my two classes only two assignments left. I just keep singing "Come Lord Jesus Come!" Then I can write the best sermon ever because I will know all truth! All together now, "Come Lord Jesus Come!"

Come, Lord Jesus is right! Regan had such a good day today! That wouldn't be a bad way to end this life, eh?;)

PS. You're almost to the end, Chantell! I might suggest taking fewer hours next semester...but I'm not as much of an over-achiever as you Mills.

Just so everyone who reads this knows. When people say "how do you do all you do" I think well this life is made possible by the generosity of Regan's JULIE!
