But a good week! We had our " Save the Planet" Crusade with Jamey Ragle! He is sooooooo good! If you're reading this ( I feel like I'm talking to myself here all the time) and you ever have the opportunity to hear this man take it! He is so blessed by God with the ability to communicate to others the truths of God's Word! Especially the youth. And can do it quite comically, too. We had a three night crusade and I was wishing it could have gone on all week( even as tired as I was).
Then yesterday my mom calls and says my dad seems to be getting worse. He has battled heart disease for more than 20 yrs. now and is going downhill pretty quickly the past few months. He had the new pacemaker/defibrilator put in in March and it has been a downhill battle ever since. But he did want some fish yesterday and his appetite seems to still be pretty good. Husband and I went by the fish and steak house and got plates for him, my mom and the two of us. He seemed to really enjoy his. Then I took my mom to the drugstore for refills on their meds and she needed to do grocery shopping as well, so we did that, too. Husband stayed with my dad. We'll be going back over this afternoon to check on them and do a few more things for them. We've got to figure out how to rearrange their living room furniture so my mom can order a hospital bed for him. It will help her that she won't have to be pulling on him to help him get in and out of bed.
We've been getting lots of peas from the garden. I've put 78 bags in the freezer. That will be more than enough for us. Took some to 2 of our ladies in the church. There are some that need picking this morning, but husband is gone with our youngest son to pick up a dog and I have far too much to do inside the house today. We've offered them to some of the neighbors, but they don't want to pick them, so I guess they'll just dry up. Nah.....husband will most likely get out there when he gets back and pick them to give to someone.
