    My electric was out all day Sunday.  Internet was out until today.  It's hard to imagine how dependent we are on both.  I think I missed my Internet the most. I couldn't get my daily JWT fix.  LOL

    Whine time. (Wine!) My car’s tire was hit by a rock. It was down for a week. My husband came home with a new Dodge Ram, pick up. We have a new dog. And we love him. The point of all this. I really, really don’t like change. And, this happened all within a week, and, my system’s response? A case of shingles. Not a bad one, but enough to grumble. (Actually, sometimes it is bad) I went to the doctor. He was not impressed. No meds. But, I think sometimes it’s mostly internal. I did phone in for the meds today. He said if I thought I needed them...

    We're in Albany GA for our assembly day tomorrow. On the drive up we saw so much destruction from the hurricane. Huge trees down everywhere. Blue tarps on so many roofs. I would have never thought there would be so much damage this far away from the center of the storm.

    On way home from service, (and errands) a rock hit my front tire. Flattened it. Immediately. I sat beside the road, in the dark, for an hour and a half. I prayed for safety. And, I wasn’t moved to put on my flashers, but to wait. I’d phoned Triple A, the roadside service. 
    There was a place to park, a miracle, (almost) 
    I know I didn’t have my flashers on, but a good thirty cars, even a sheriffs vehicle sailed past me. And, people know my car. That shocked me. 
    I told them at the store what happened. They will let the community know. 
    I drive a Subaru. And I know the rock hit the sidewall. Now, I get to find out if I will have to get new tires. It’s parked outside, with the sissy tire on.

    I’ve been helping my elderly/infirm spiritual mom and dad pack their belongings to move to their new home in the Gwinn area. One son came on Wednesday night to help thru Sunday, the other son came from Ohio Friday night thru Sunday morning. A brother came from their old congregation and helped as well. Their sons both had to get back home cause their both truckers and had to be back to work. 
    I never saw such heavy stuff being wheeled out (on dollies) of the old house and back into a new house so fast. Those guys never stopped.
     
    O we started out with a 20 foot trailer.
     
    Today, I am going up to their new house to pick them up so they can close on the house. I will be so happy to permanently get them away from the crazy landlady. They are thrilled.
     
    Two days of standing/walking around and lifting was all my poor knees could take. I’m glad we didn’t have to do anymore on Sunday, they just couldn’t take much more. They (knees) needed a rest. 
     
    Than Saturday mom had a scary health issue so I took her to Marquette ER. So we were done for that day as it took forever at the ER. Turns out it was kinda what we thought it was. Worse bladder infection the ER doc ever saw.
     
    Marquette (their now congregation) friends are already happy to have them back. At least there, (as they were in that congregation before) friends will call or even visit them and someone nearby who can take them to meetings on their good days.  
     
    They won’t be ignored.

    Have you tried singing the Convention song aloud and envisioning 
    Jehovah's legions of angels, ready to go into battle behind Michael?

    I like to squint and envision this sight with my eyes of faith. 
     
    The lyrics make me cry...but they also give me great comfort in these scary times:
     
    "Give Me Courage"
     
    Doubt and fear surround me
    The way ahead not clear.
    Through uncertainty you guide me.
    I know you're always near.
    Life may not be easy, 
    But this I know is true:
    You're the God who's ever loyal.
    My life is safe with you.
     
    Jehovah, give me eyes of faith
    And help me always see
    There are more with us than against us.

    Courage, give me courage
    With courage I'll endure.
    Jehovah, give me courage.  
    Your victory is sure.
     
    Feeling fear is human.
    In my own strength I'm frail.
    You have been my Rock and Refuge.
    Your power never fails.
    Help me be courageous
    And let my heart be brave.
    Lasting harm can never hold me,
    No prison gate or grave.

    What a great surprise I had this morning. Altho we only got a few inches over night, it had to be removed.
    Anyway, I finally get out there to scoop the back path out to garage. I notice my new neighbor with his scoop heading my way.
    I finish the path, open the garage door and he’s half way done with the front of the garage. 😳😳😳😳😳
    And I mean he was moving.Wow! Wish I could make light work of snow. LOL
