Random stuff

  • Valentine's Day: Beautiful flowers, candlelight, the good china, and our traditional beef stroganoff and molten chocolate cakes. So far, so good...until we looked up from our mutual reverie just in time to see...the dog, peeing in the living room.
  • This came on the heels of a relaxing afternoon, enjoying a glass exhibit at the Center for Contemporary Craft, then driving past our old duplex in West U. and remembering strolls through the neighborhood, nearly eighteen years ago.
  • Unbloggable extended family stuff is driving. us. nuts. Prayers for patience and wisdom are appreciated.
  • On Sunday, the congregation voted to call our new pastor. No dissenting voices were heard. (Yet.) I'm so glad he will be here soon, but actually a bit sorry to see the PNC come to an end.
  • At work I made a stupid mistake that will affect the provision of services for one of our clients. I have an idea about how to rectify it, but I will have a lot of egg on my face. "What! You mean you're not perfect?" my friend D said. No, I surely am not. I hope that straightening this out will be less miserable than I anticipate.
  • As Scarlett said, I'll think about it tomorrow. Good night.

Oh, Amie! (Also the unbloggable.)
Hope you slept well.

The first one made me giggle. Leave it to one of your kids to jerk you back into reality.

I am sure that what you did is not nearly as bad as what you think it is. It will work out.

So sorry about the unbloggables.

And best wishes to all on the calling of the new pastor! Blessings on his ministry with the congregation.

Mary Beth said...

Love you. Praying for you.

*sigh* for the unbloggables, the mistake, the Amie (who is still very much welcome in our home; we are fully equipped with Spot Shot and cleanup rags).

Glad to hear the new pastor's official now!

prayers for the ubloggable and for the reconcilation of imperfection...keeps us humble, doesn't it...

I posted earlier, but I guess I exited before it saved...

We can relate to the "mistake" in the living room. I think at this point Redford is training us more than we are training him! But, molten chocolate cakes make everything better.

Sorry for the unbloggables. I've got one in my own family that's also unbloggable, and making me very sad.

Glad to hear about your new pastor, and that being on the PNC was a blessing for you!

Hoping also that the mistake is easier to rectify than you think, and that graciousness is the order of the day. With God, it is always so!

no photos of a glass exhibit... my heart aches ;'(

it is good to know you understand "unbloggable" and may the situation improve.

Warm thoughts, hugs, prayers for all the mistakes and hassles. And love to Amie.

Thank you for your prayers! My big goof was rectified quite smoothly. Nobody got mad, and everybody was happy. Thanks be to God.

Late to the game. Glad goof was resolved. I've a little egg on my face right now & I hate that. Some how it's okay for everyone else to be quite human, but never when it's self.
