Today, Nate spent the day with me. A friend of Jenni’s family was killed last night right in front of her boyfriend. It’s been a sad, shock-filled day for them. I brought Nate home with me so we could clean out the pool and run the filter for a while, but it rained pretty hard, along with a good bit of thunder. So we just hung out and then went to church at 6. After church, we melted marshmallows over a candle and made s’mores. Right now, it’s nearly bed time.

Well, VBS went well, but we didn’t have any major decisions made during that week. Of course, who knows what seeds were planted in those precious little minds. Time and eternity will tell, as they say. By the way, who is “they” anyhow? Does anybody really know? And why do “they” get all the credit for stuff? Is that fair?
