Thank You Jesus
[ & Michael James Feldbauer ]
We can finally add photos once again.
I know it might seem a rather small thing in the grand scheme of things but it was driving me CRAZY[er] to not be able to post pics on this blog. MJ [ I hear you brother Mark Joseph, there is indeed more than one "MJ" but Michael is the original ... ] helped me get to the bottom of the problem to fix the "no pic posting challenge" this morning. Am so pleased about that. He remains my hero. [ after nearly 40 years under the same roof ]
I am going to TRY to post once a week hereafter. STOP LAUGHING ! I can do it if I put my mind to it. Then again we are about to be absorbed into another production at GVCS, so .......
My week began with that child whom I adore & will end the same way = yeah ! Jaxson spent last weekend with us in all his overt cuteness & energy. He & his Mommy are at GaGa's house right now & I will spend time with him later today also. Any week with double Jaxson is a GOOD week.
Held auditions at GVCS this week for 9 to 5 The Musical [ have never held auditions in the summer = pre school starting but we only have eight weeks to put this together so we had to start early]. We still need more cast, especially [ eternally ] males, but we shall not give up as of yet. Have been in this position before and the best thing to do is to send out pretty young ladies to "encourage" the men to join. Yes, this is a bit sexist I suppose..... but it works. In years past Carmella Losi and Autumn McCumiskey were the best at accomplishing this endeavor. Interesting that they both are pursuing careers in acting.
The response to the last post " HE LIVES" was rather surprising. I gave it little thought except I was embarrassed that it had been so long between postings. But the fb PM's and the texts I received truly warmed my heart. What a BLESSING my friends are ... as well as my " Family of the Heart".
Since more than a few of you have asked,,, YES my weight is still a HUGE issue [ pun intended ]. It is such an issue that I will leave it for its own separate post at a later date. Oh to be back where I was even last October / November. Geeeeeeeesh.
Congrats to Andrew Lewis on some good news from this week, via last Wednesday AND yesterday. Never give up HOPE Andrew. It's ALL in the attitude Mister !
My dear Sarah [ mother of that child whom I adore ] remains such a blessing in my life. She is struggling right now but we still manage to have the BEST TALKS on the phone [ and in person too]. Especially [ but not solely ] about the Bible. Of course we also agree a great deal about politics so that helps. LOVE IT when you are so close to a person that when you are together you KNOW what the other one is thinking with just a certain "look". Right Sar ?
Of course Connie is a blessing that STILL amazes me, even after 21 years. [ She is Mother of Sarah & GaGa to that child whom I adore]. How her shoulders have not collapsed by now is beyond me. Lord have mercy. Cannot begin to describe our relationship ... much more than a friendship ,,, yet we'd kill one another if we were under the same roof. Some things are best left as they are rather than to try to define them I guess, right Lew ?
A dear Christian friend of mine is soon to be with the Lord. Will respect her privacy and not mention her name at this point, but my heart is weeping EXCEPT that [ as she would say ] " I know that I Know that I KNOW " where she is gong. I miss her already and await the day that we will be reunited once again. Our early [ and I mean EARLY ] morning chats on the phone were ever so revealing & personal, the empty place in my heart will likely n'er fade away.
Blessings from this week include [ but are NOT limited to ]: GOD'S eternal patience with me, MJF , Connie, Sarah, Jaxson, good news for Andrew, Christopher Lewis, Gary Nevinger, ALL the students that auditioned at GVCS, Penny Miller, Donna DiGirolamo, Joe & Laurie Mead,,,,,,,,,
KEEP A SONG
YOUR HEART !
