"This life therefore, is not godliness but the process of becoming godly, not health but getting well, not being but becoming, not rest but exercise. We are not now what we shall be, but we are on the way. The process is not yet finished, but it is actively going on. This is not the goal, but it is the right road. At present, everything does not gleam and sparkle, but everything is being cleansed." --Martin Luther

the crud

For the last week a flu like bug has been going through the house. A lot of stomach cramps, vomiting a little and diarrhea. I think a lot of it is we have all gotten run down. Trying to keep up with everything needed for the teams and our own stuff at the house. I think it has just been too much. The kids have been falling asleep earlier and earlier ever night. Usually 4 of the 7 fall asleep during the evening services. Myron actually walked up front, laid on the floor under the table and was out cold. I will sit down after lunch and often fall asleep. We are trying to figure out a routine/grove but it is difficult. The days often start a little after 6 am and don’t get done until 8 or 9 pm. Henry has not been sleeping well at all, those teeth just don’t want to come in and he has a nasty cold. And as everyone knows, if the baby doesn’t sleep well, mom and dad don’t sleep well. Today Mariah and I have come down with it, so I have not left the house today. Kel had it the last couple of days as well as Mya. Even Joe had it about two weeks ago. Now, he NEVER got flu bugs in the States, even when the whole rest of the family had it. At least we are in between groups right now; the next group comes in Tuesday morning early so I have to leave here by around 5 am to pick them up.
