a game with Mr. R

I'm laying here with my eyes half open and a stuffed up nose. Just a couple hours ago, I was saying how I was feeling so much better...yet, right now my head feels like it's a 100lbs all by itself! I think it's because I'm tired and ready for sleep :) I really have been feeling better today! The morning started out a little rough, but as the day went on I perked up!

Cale was quite the chatter box today! It was really funny all the things he was coming up with. Bad part, is that I didn't write anything down and with my head full of cotton all day, I don't remember even one of his funnies! Hmm...

For RT Cale played "Sorry" with one of the other patients. Rebecca wasn't there, so I got everything organized and kind of let them have control. I had to help a little, but for the most part, Cale ran the game! Mr. R (this is what I'll call him) is a little more slow going and easily distracted. Cale would take his turn and Mr. R would forget to take his, or start talking about something random. I'm good with it, but Cale was pretty focused on the game. At one point he picked the card up, told Mr. R how many to move, and then moved him! It was fun to watch them play together and very interesting all at the same time! I enjoyed a yummy cupcake while watching :)

Psalm 136:1-9
Give thanks to the Lord, for he is good!
His faithful love endures forever.
Give thanks to the God of gods.
His faithful love endures forever.
Give thanks to the Lord of lords.
His faithful love endures forever.
Give thanks to him who alone does mighty miracles.
His faithful love endures forever.
Give thanks to him who made the heavens so skillfully.
His faithful love endures forever.
Give thanks to him who placed the earth among the waters.
His faithful love endures forever.
Give thanks to him who made the heavenly lights—
His faithful love endures forever.
the sun to rule the day,
His faithful love endures forever.
and the moon and stars to rule the night.

His faithful love endures forever

22) I am thankful for Who God is. I am thankful for all that He has done, is doing, and is going to do in our lives. I'm thankful for Who He is in my life, Who He is in Cale's life, and Who He is in this journey. He is good! He has done mighty miracles and continues to do them! It can be so easy to get wrapped up in what's going on every day and look at all the things that aren't going the way we want, but when I stop and look at WHO God is and all that He is and everything He has done, I can't help but stand in awe of Him. Every time I'm reminded, all the things in my life, don't seem like such a big deal. If He placed the earth among the waters, then who am I to question if He knows what He's doing with Cale? Does He know that we were perfectly happy? Does He know that Cale likes to run? Does He know the kind of job Cale was applying for? Does He know that Cale is one of the smartest people I knew? Does He know we loved Him and were serving Him? Does He know...? Yes! He does, and His faithful love endures forever-and I am so incredibly thankful.

  1. Dear One!! You know, colds seem to like to settle in for the night. Can't say that I like it, but they seem to do it anyway. I, too, am thankful for all Father is doing for you and Cale, and yes He does know what we are going through. With a hug and much love, Marion

  2. Kathleen, Hope you are feeling much better by now. I just wanted to let you know that I laughed out loud at the mental picture of Cale picking the card and telling Mr. R how many to move. So funny!
