Mark took me to work this morning at the Noble House and then he went and picked Merih up for some guy time. Mark has been working on Merih’s car for at least the last couple of weeks, and it was hoped that with Merih’s help, they might be able to finish, but this car is not so easy to fix. However, Mark thinks that they should be able to have it driveable by next Tuesday. Merih is certainly hoping so! Continue reading

Today is Kader’s twenty-first birthday. I managed to get tickets to a play so that we could take her tonight. First, at Merih’s invitation, we took her to dinner in the bar at Sister Bay Bowl.

One more update on my friends in Louisiana… Betty sends her thanks for all the prayers that went up for them after I posted about her and Mike. She says that while others are saying the weathermen were wrong, she prefers to believe that God answered our prayers and hers.
Speaking of storms, we went through a doozy today.
A number of you have responded that you are praying for my friends, the Gills in Louisiana. I didn’t know where they lived and I’ve been concerned for them all day. I just got this from Betty… Continue reading
This is a quick prayer request. I have friends in Louisiana, Mike and Betty Gill. Please pray for them and all the residents of Louisiana who are getting pounded with two feet of rain and eighty mile per hour winds as a result of Tropical Storm Barry.
