Quick update

Dear friends,

I have not dropped off the face of the earth. While I did have a chest cold a couple of weeks ago, that is passed. But I have not had the energy to rant, news to report, etc. beyond the trip to the Salt Missions on Labor Day. There have thus been few postings. My energies have gone in other directions and on several nights I had done something shocking and gone to bed very early. This may be one of those nights.

I do have one update on prayer requests. Jack, my father-in-law, has congestive heart failure setting in and, as he is in his mid-nineties and has other ailments, we are clearly entering the final phase of his life. I ask your prayers for him and for the family.

Praying for a whole host of folks here, but not listing them right now.

Still preaching once a month. Still researching the current novel. Getting my mind ready to rip out all the annuals and summer vegetables from the back yard. Still studying Italian, but now on my own. Rejoicing in the cooler weather as we begin to move toward autumn.

Sweet dreams, my rambunctious 'roo rats.
