I, too am heading off for a few days. My uncle Don, a retired missionary, has been very ill for some time and has been readmitted to the hospital; it seems likely that his homegoing will be quite soon. My Dad wants to see his brother. I will be driving my parents and my three girls from here to there tomorrow, with about 8 hours of road time. We plan to be home sometime Tuesday or Wednesday, unless events intervene otherwise.

Prayers for safe travel, reasonably happy kids, and my sanity/alertness would be appreciated. Most of all, please pray for a happy, peaceful death for my Uncle Don in God's time, for his wife, my Aunt Norma, and for my cousin Sarah who is in charge of his care.

I am reminded by all of this of the wonderful heritage of faith that is mine in my family. None of my extended family is Catholic, but I was in Sunday School from the first Sunday of my life (Mom was teaching) and cannot remember *not* knowing the basics of the faith. My parents met in the home missions, and my Uncle Don and Aunt Norma were missionaries overseas for more than 30 years. Most of all, my parents taught me to love Jesus, that loving Him matters more than anything else, and that loving Jesus means helping others love Him too.

Tell your children about Jesus. If you don't have any of your own, tell somebody else's children about Jesus.

If you plan to board an Amtrak train at a location other than the train's initial place of departure, it's usually a good idea to call ahead before you leave for the station to see if the train is running on time.

She gets no reward, but the son gets free cable, food, sleeping until noon and no curfew. I don't see any change and am now having to make the hard decisions for my own life, which don't include any of the ongoing drama.
