The Next 8 Weeks

Right now, it seems we are measuring all time by when David will get home. So - I thought maybe it would help me to tell you all what the next 8 weeks is going to look like! Who knows - maybe if I put it in writing, it will help it go by faster!! I know - probably wishful thinking on my part! Another reason for me to put it on here is to ask for prayer for the next 8 weeks. Maybe when I am done you will understand why a little more!! :)
Dave leaves tomorrow morning for a camp in the Turks and Caicos Islands for 10 days. Christa is coming on the 1st and then Dave will be back home on the 3rd. He leaves early the 4th for a revival in Kansas and Christa leaves to go back home on the 6th. Then Dave will come home on the 10th and our anniversary is on the 13th! 21 years by the way! Not bad!!! Not too sure what we will get to do but time will tell. Then on two Sundays, the 16th and the 23rd, he is supposed to preach in Summerfield but we will see about that since...on the 17th he is scheduled for outpatient surgery that will keep him "out of commission" for about 3 to 4 weeks! Then he leaves again on April 7th for a revival in Michigan and then heads to IHC the next week. When IHC is over on the 17th, David, Jr. will be arriving home sometime in the next 6 days!!! There - pleasant reading, huh?!?! I am already tired just thinking about it and putting it all in one place!
I would just ask for prayer in several ways. 1) Please pray for Dave as he preaches these meetings that God will help him and give him the strength he needs. 2) Please pray that the rest of us get all the things done we want to while he is gone! Don't tell him but we have lots of plans!!! 3) Please pray for us as a family as we prepare for David's homecoming. Lots to do and learn in a short amount of time! 4) Please pray for David, Jr. over these next few weeks that God will help in very specific ways as he prepares tp come home. The devil is working hard to attack his mind so please pray for that specifically!!!
I think I need to go lie down now but am pretty sure the "boss" would not be pleased with that!!

WHEW! That is a lot happening in the next few weeks, may God help all involved!

Thanks for your nice comments on my blog. I'm sorry that my blog has goodies posted on it quite often. I make those goodies to help us not miss our family/friends/country so much. But,I'm going to try to not make too many goodies in the next 3 weeks...although my new Taste of Home just arrived TODAY! =D My poor Noah is suffering withdrawals from not having goodies in the house. He just went and handed me a pack of Jello and asked me if I could make it up for him. =D Then a few minutes later he said, "Mommy, could you PLEASE make something!" I told him that he could go and get a piece of yummy fruit out of the fruit basket...so he did. =)
