157- Bee Stings and
September 25, 1985
A day only has so many hours in it. This day held a barrage of interruptions:
*My goal was to go to Jenny’s house at 10.
*My goal also was getting some home schooling done for Tim, starting about 9:15.
*I slept in till 7am. First mistake!
*While on the phone with a strong personality, Daniel cut his lip with his teeth by falling in the bathroom. I hung up and called back two times to tend to him.
*Joyce called at 10 to check on answered prayer. I was supposed to be at Jenny’s so I told her I would call her another time.
*Immediately after I hung up Bev appeared at the door! I began fixing a snack for everyone and tea for us (I decided to just give in and enjoy this friend), and Jackie called!
*Then Dan came home! He encouraged me proceed with the schedule and to go to my friend’s, so we got to Jenny’s at 11:15.
*For some excitement the boys stirred up a bee’s nest and 3 of the seven boys got two stings each! It was a little rowdy and quite scary but we were so grateful for just a few stings, and that the babies did not get stung.
*We came home for a quick lunch, the boys rested, then it was time for the milking barns field trip!
*Dan kept Daniel. It was a wonderful trip.
*At 5:30 Dan called and had received tickets for the Silverwind concert from the airplane friend. [no grudge there!]
*Dan picked up a friend’s daughter to babysit.
*We praised God that His wonderful grace had met us at every step of this crazy day!
*The boys loved Kathy, the sitter, and she loved them.
*At the concert we got to praise our God loudly and wonderfully long-ly! I praised Him for LIFE! I got to release my thanks for sparing us catastrophe! Bless You, God!
