So, in that absence of anything of any theological importance to say, I thought I'd share with my friends some of the changes that have occupied so much of my time this last couple of weeks.
Over the past week I spent my extra hours each day peeling horrid wallpaper, the layer of plain paper underneath, and caulking the gaps and cracks in the ancient wallboard. (I know we really needed to replace the wallboard, but that's for people with more money than we have. So we will make do, and be thankful for paint and caulk.) Here's how the house looked this morning, with all the books, furniture and what-nots crammed to the center of the tiny room to give us access to the walls. This afternoon, my dear son, Tony, (that's him in the plaid shirt, above) began with the paint.
So, this is what keeps me from my blog. Lord willing that won't last too much longer, but He knows the plans He has for me far better than I do. This week our Charity study resumes. Perhaps that will lend me some substance to share. Thanks to all of you for your patience, kind words, and most of all for your prayers.
