The Journey to Freedom

Sunday are pretty consistent.

Our Sundays don't change much.  Not even the food we eat.  We have basically the same crockpot dinner every Sunday because it can cook while we are gone.  We not only had the next four interns over for dinner but we invited the missionaries also.  I am amazed at the sweet spirit that accompanies them.  I would hope the same spirit exists with us but I am not sure it does.  The young missionaries are the army on the front lines.  I feel more like we are keeping the fires burning but they are fighting the war.  It was nice to have them in our home.

 Our schedule on Sundays doesn't really vary much.  We leave at 10 for church and get home at 3:30 to 4 depending on if we have our meetings after church.  We feed the interns and have the evening to work at home on varies projects.  We were asked to talk in two weeks in Church.  We have stake conference next week.  I think a lot of single adults will be gone for Thanksgiving so we should have a smaller than normal attendance.  I love our young adult ward.  It is fun to be with them and they are good to us.

Michael and Diana have got us excited.  They are going to drive here for Thanksgiving.  I think they are going to rent a car drop it off and then rent another car at the end of their visit and drop it off back in Atlanta.  I don't think they can come until early Thursday morning and they are going to leave Sunday morning but we will take them for how ever long they have.  Things should be quiet around here with Thanksgiving holiday.  We will be doing Thanksgiving dinner at the Barlow Center for those young adults in the area that have no place to go that day.

We called to wish David a happy birthday.  It is hard to believe that our oldest son is 38 years old.  Where is the time going.  The years just melt away.  Thank you David for letting us practice parenting on you.  It is hard to express how much we love each of our children and in law children and our grandchildren.

  1. That's too bad about your friend. I'm sure its hard being away in times like this. Its sounds like you're doing great things on the East coast though and touching many lives. That's awesome that Michael and Diana get to come up for Thanksgiving. Have a great week.

  2. Wonderful you will share Thanksgiving with Michael and Diana! As much as you love missionary work, holidays are lonesome without family.
