A busy but uneventful day
Today was busy. Six guys were here at 6 AM for our weekly meditations which are always very good. Then Jerry and I went for breakfast and I had a camp meeting here tonight. Between those events I got 72 squares of flowers and veggies planted and a 4 mile walk in and enjoyed soup for dinner with Cynthia and Mike. The weather was just perfect. I still have a hard time justifying the time it takes to go for a walk but I do know it is good for me and important. After our camp meeting tonight I wanted to sit and talk to Gail about the camp things ahead of us----can't do that now so will have to go solo on some of the things. The program directors are so so great and experienced I perhaps would not have to do much but I like to think I need to do some things. Can you believe we are now planning the 33rd edition of Servant Camp!!!! I am not sure I am that old.
I was encouraged that today went well for me, that is two days straight. I would give anything or do anything to have Gail at my side-----life would be so much fuller and richer and meaningful but I will do my best to continue on and live my life in a way that gives Glory to God and honor to Gail.
I think I may be about ready to venture into my wood shop if this weather keeps up. I did spent a bit of time out there yesterday but it was chilly yet.
Tomorrow I hope to make the final decisions on the monument and order it. I will see if I have enough courage to make that decison to put my name on that cold hard stone!
