God's Grace

Posted by saveliberty , 16 September 2012 · 1,056 views

I received the gift of God's Grace yesterday. While I'd joked about the haircut, in the afternoon I realized that the true gift was that I could spend time with Dad.

Dad had needed to run some errands and we weren't going to have time on Saturday, which meant that we'd planned to run some after church on Sunday. It's not our favorite,...

God must like my haircut

We have had a busy summer with family and friends and the time has come to say goodbye to the last of our travelers.

Two of our travelers are from different countries in Africa. One was leaving the US two weeks ago on a Saturday, and had made a plan that we all would drive down to where he was spending his last days in this country. It's about an hour...

The Party

Posted by saveliberty , 09 September 2012 · 670 views

We had a wonderful time yesterday!

Original plans were to have five of my sister's dearest friends over for a little gathering and have snacks, cake and ice cream to celebrate her birthday. So Dad and I were surprised on Friday when we learned that a small gathering had been transformed into one of over 14 people and also dinner (a cookout, but...

Now we are here

I am long overdue in writing. Part of that is the grace to understand that a lot of the health and family stories are overly about me, and the other is in light of busy home and work life.

To at least bring the story up to date without going into annoying details, I was in the hospital for a few days beginning at the end of March. I'd been in ICU until...

Working on my recovery

Posted by saveliberty , 14 April 2012 · 871 views

Headaches are the worry now. I can't bend or look down for prolonged periods without feeling sick.

I am still working on a shorter work schedule, although it's hard to do when someone needs help. I have paperwork allowing me to keep this up for next week and then the following one, I will try to work a full 8 hours per day.

As part of my...

At least I did not drive

Last week, I had been having stomach pains and I figured that I had some kind of virus. I did take some time to rest and felt somewhat better afterwards, but there was something about the recovery that wasn't right. I still had pains, but fewer of them.

I worked from home for the rest of the week. On Friday, I went downstairs during a break to visit...

Something to smile about

My days are still very busy, and after a long, hard week, I wanted to see something that would be fun.

Youtube is great; with hardly any effort at all, this wonderful father-daughter wedding dance medley came up!

Sorry, I have not been holding out.

It has been very busy at work and I have been putting in long hours each day.

I love my job and am happy to be working.

But today started out more roughly than it ended.

Whew! :D

Which Way Forward?

I am pleased to see that my good friend, @Polly has resumed blogging. She has a very insightful post here, which is an excellent read.

I have been trying to think of what direction I would go now that the blog is working again, even better...

Now We Are Cooking With Gas

Posted by saveliberty , 28 January 2012 · 829 views

For most of her adult life, Mom has used electric stoves and she loves them.

I prefer gas, and I've had gas stoves in this house and the old house.

Mom misses her electric stove and at best, I can see the virtues of a convection oven. So maybe someday there will be a dual fuel range, but now for a while....
