Update December 3, 2012
The last few weeks we have had a lot of family issues that have kept our attention, leaving this blog unattended. We have family members that are in need of prayer due to illness. I cannot elaborate on the details because I do not want to violate the privacy of them. God knows all situations even before we ask him. With Thanksgiving just passing and Christmas approaching, the blog has taken a back seat. When time is short like this, I have to limit my time online and resort to small online posts like Twitter, Facebook, Google+, Tumblr, etc. I can post to them from my phone when on the go. That is why I have Twitter on my page so that even when I am not posting on the blog, at least I can post small messages.
On a good note, we have been so warm that we still have leaves on the trees even now in December. It has been so nice that we have really been enjoying it. We still need rain very badly. Other than the illness that I mentioned above, life has been very good for our family. Since we bought our new home, we have room for people and so we’ve been able to see our family so much more than in the past. I’ve seen relatives many times since we moved into our home than we have seen in many years. Though I am a city person and often miss living more in the center of the city where all the activity is, I have to recognize that being able to see our family often, has been priceless. My family is so important to me and so being close to them is such a blessing.
It is a work night and I have to get up early so I cannot post much but I wanted to be able to check in for once. It has been nearly three weeks. I’ll try to post more often.
