Exactly why Cleveland should have traded for Jiminez.

BULLET THOUGHTS FOR THE DAY

  • A great day with the family.  We left about 10:30 to go swim at a watermark.  We returned about 4:00 and had done all of about an hour of swimming.  Booo . . .
  • Related to the first bullet, Lexi gave the following gem of a quote while waiting for the pool to re-open.  Julie had just told her the weather lady said this morning that the day was looking good other than some showers perhaps in the morning, so Lexi responded: “I don’t like the weather lady.  She tells lies.”
  • It was sad to me – Lexi was truly heartbroken that we decided to leave early.  I hate it when she’s upset.
  • Have I ever mentioned here that I need prayer for wisdom?  Whew I wish I knew what to do all the time.
  • I am enjoying this series in Nehemiah.
  • I am praying today for the Tazig people.  What an awesome missionary presentation given to us last night!
  • Dear Brian Cashman – before yesterday your team was not good enough to win the World Series.  Today is no different!
  • I am sad that a friend and neighbor has moved to another part of the city.
  • This Sunday our foster daughter will turn one year old.  Thursday, we will pass the nine month mark of having her in our home.  Is this really possible?
  • 36 days in a row of training.  A couple more hard weeks then pray for the best!
