Sunday and My Hubby

I just read a post from my sweet friend Margaret that broke my heart. You can read it here: http://networkedblogs.com/90KrV During Invisible Illness Week, Margaret came acoss the statistic that 75% of marriages with one chronically ill spouse end in divorce. I was shocked. I figured it was high, but not THAT high. She was one in the 75%.

I know that you've all probably heard all this before, but it just reconfirms once again that my husband is a man of character. He is not perfect; nor am I! But he has the important things: Integrity. Character. A wonderful work ethic. A heart for God. He loves me and Jacob with all of his heart, and there is never a doubt in my mind Doug will be with me until one of us is gone from this earth, or until Jesus comes back. And the comfort and reassurance that goes with that when you are chronically ill....there's just no price you can put on that!

Now, on to Sunday. I had said yesterday that Sunday was a good day too. I went to church again. It's very traditional, very sedate...but they preach the Word, and they seem stable. We have been to nothing but "undemoninational" or "start-up" churches in the last 10 years, and that certainly wasn't working for us, so we're getting back to the basics. Doug and I were both raised in quite tradtional churches, so we're going to try this one for a while and see how it goes.
Our Maple Trees

Then Sunday late afternoon we decided to go out for a little ride and get ice cream! It was such a beautiful day. The color this year out here is GORGEOUS!
This is the view of the northeast woodline on our property. Amazing!

We ended up driving right by good friends of ours, so we stopped and said hi...then finally got around to the ice cream, and back home. It was a really nice day!

Here's to tomorrow being just as good!

I hope the new Church you are going to works out well. Our priest was called back to the US earlier this year so we've been having 2 priests and the Bishop rotate saying the Mass. I really understood and found a lot of value from one of the priests but unfortunately we now have a new permanent priest and I don't much like his sermons. We'll see how it goes.

Your maple trees are absolutely stunning. I really miss having all four seasons. All we have here is hot and green and cold and green.

I hope tomorrow is another good day for you!

Cheers :-)

The trees are beautiful! I'm glad to hear you were able to go to church. It's always such an encouraging, refreshing experience when David and I are able to worship and fellowship with other believers at church. Sometimes it's what gets us through the week!
