Ugh!! and Grrrrr

My computer is dying. It lasted a whole 4 years. I will see what it will take to fix it but, To Mac or Not To Mac? What do you think?

This was the last step in making a scout rank for Everett (attending a sporting event). In our school work he has earned other achievements, however, until he completed his tiger rank, he could not receive them. Ugh! I get it and understand. But right now we are in the process of slowing things down for the goal of being less busy, for the purpose of a united family. Kind of like pruning a bush for stronger roots and thus a better fruit. So I have canceled the two of four nights that we were scheduled to be out of the house during or after dinner.
Deuteronomy 22:9 (niv) Do not plant two kinds of seed in your vineyard; if you do, not only the crops you plant but also the fruit of the vineyard will be defiled
Psalm 107:37 (nkj) And sow fields and plant vineyards,That they may yield a fruitful harvest.
I will be tending our vineyard . . . .

My Co-op Villiage

Definition: An association of persons united voluntarily to meet their common economic, social, and cultural needs and aspirations through a jointly-owned enterprise.

Life application: Someone who is invested in you and your families total well-being. They may talk you of that ledge during a math lesson with your son, encourage him over the phone, and suggest he call your son once he has completed it. One you can count on for dinners when you are sick. The prayer, correction, wisdom and encouragement you know is in stock. The revolving system of clothes, home and educational materials.

I love my Co-op. I'm an investor!

Enough is Enough

I started this post this morning. Such is the reason. Remember that a quiet blog is a busy family? We has been to busy for our own good. Since my last post we have let our frogs go (story), purchased four more chickens (story), poisoned myself with pepto bismol after a migraine (story), did lots of Scouts stuff (pictures), made valentines with our church and handed them out in nursing homes, celebrated the Chinese New Year with friends (pictures), took a hike with new friends to a beach (pictures), went to the 2010 Olympics with a good friend (pictures), and a few other things. The Above Rubies Retreat is this weekend and I am more than ready. Yes the break will be nice, but I am more excited for what God has in store. We have been to busy. God has been working in my heart, and my brain has been listening, to his re alignment of my priorities. If I feel this excited and motivated before I go, I can not wait to get back . . . .
