Sunday, February 27, 2011

I went to church and Sunday School today. Pastor Amy ended her series of the Sermon on the Mount and Sunday School began a study of the book, "The 24 Hours That Changed the World" by Adam Hamilton. It is about the last days of Jesus. It looks like it will be good.

It was nice out today. The forecast was for rain but it didn't come. It was rather pleasant. I baked some chicken breast and the heat from the oven has brought the stink bugs out of the woodwork. Maybe I should put it on everyday until I get rid of them. I can't flush them down the toilet anymore because I learn that the chemical they spray out interferes with the bacteria in the septic system. They croak in my soapy solution so I'll just throw them out on the branch pile or over the embankment. They are attracted to light and someone thought they'd use their zapper on them. Not a good idea. The stink would be all over the yard.

Danny got scared this morning. My plastic water bottle made a snap noise. He was terrified. He shook all over and wanted to run under the bed but clung next to me shaking. I put a pillow on the other side of him and he settled down. Poor little guy. He gets scared so easily.

I didn't hear from my niece this evening so I ate my chicken, baked potato and broccoli for dinner. There is an excellent program on the Green Planet channel about the last days of Jesus. I never watched the Green Planet channel before; I stumbled upon it as I was looking through the menu listing.

Good morning Karol,

I'm sure you have thought about all those concerns since Ted died. And, it is unsettling to think about what would happen to any of us if our spouses died. In your case, I wish I could promise that I would care for you and Danny, but, to be honest, that isn't a reality, I don't think, because I'm considerably older than you. And, I'm handicapped. However, I want you to know that I do care for you enough to wish I could make that promise to you. You are such a fine woman and many people love you very much. You know what, God doesn't want us to be fearful and we just need to know that He will provide for us.

I feel concern too about something happening to my precious husband. He helps me so very much each day that it seems like it would be impossible for me to be without his help. So, I just put my trust in the Lord and He will guide me if something so terrible were to happen in our lives. I have talked to each of our children and explained to them that I would be okay in a nursing home. I know they are not the perfect answer, but, I would rather do that than to become a burden in any of their lives. Younger families are so very busy anymore, So, I'll be okay no matter when my time on Earth is over. We just need to trust in the Lord with all our hearts. He is God Almighty and has done such perfect works always.

Have a good week Karol. Love, Ruth

Thanks, Ruth, God has provided me with good friends and family through Ted's illness and afterwards. I just have to remind myself of that when I'm feeling down or worrying about things.
