Any advice?

I friend of mine from my 7-11 days was due to give birth to her first child at the end of April. I hadn't spoken to her since a little before that. She was very excited about being a mom. I was thinking about her yesterday and was going to send a facebook message asking how motherhood was going when noticed her status. Apparently, the baby never made it home. I'm not sure if he was still born or what happened exactly but that doesn't matter. I don't know her that well but I still felt sad for her. My question is - How do you tell someone that they won't see their baby again...you know...in heaven, without sounding preachy or condenming? Any advice?

Random Songs

Ever got a song in your head and you don't where it came from. Yesterday, out of nowhere, the Hercules theme song (the old animated series) popped into my head and I couldn't get it out. Remember that,

Hercules, Hero of song and story.
Hercules, winner of fame and glory.
etc, etc, etc.

Now it's probably stuck in your head, Sorry :)

First time meeting Neil Young.

How cool is this. Concert was awesome but this was definately the highlight. Worth losing a few hours sleep.

We all go through them. There are many different kind of seasons in life. There is childhood, adulthood, school, marriage, etc. All kinds of seasons. There are also seasons in our spiritual life. I am in a season in my spiritual that I myself cannot put into words. I don't have CD player in my van so I have listen to...cassettes...remember those? There is a song on one of them that describes my spiritual season right now. I heard again and said wow that's me.

In my eyes
With the tears about to flow
As they rise
And I question all I know
So the feelings come
And the feelings go
In my storm

It's just a rainy season
Sweeping across my sky
It's just a rainy season
And I don't need a reason to cry

Out of sea
Should the tempest dare to blow
Down on me
As I tread the undertow
So the waters ebb
And the waters flow
In my storm


Like the changing of the wind
May whisper bitter secrets in my ear
Second chances
Will call my name again
It all depends on what I choose to hear


The song is called "Rainy Season" written by Stephen Crumbacher. Taken from Eccl 3:1 & 4 "There is time for everything, and a reason for activity under heaven: (4) a time to weep and a time to laugh, a time to mourn and a time dance," and Rom 12:15-16 "Rejoice with those who rejoice, mourn with those who mourn. Live in harmony with one another. Do not be proud, but be willing to associate with people of low position. Do not be conceited."

My rainy season seems like it will never end. I hear God calling me but the wind, rain, thunder and lightning are so loud that I'm not quite sure what he is telling me. But, then again, maybe I'm only hearing what I want to.

What do you do?

What do you do when you are waiting for news from somewhere and when you finally recieve it, it's not what you wanted to here?

Everyone who has spent time with my son has asked or wondered if he is Autisic. I read the characteristics of an autisic child and see my son. We had him checked here in Saskatoon and they said no, that he had a learnig disability. To me, a learning disability means you have trouble learning new...that's not Josiah, he is one of the smarter kids I know. Needless to say we didn't agree with what they said so, we wanted a second opinion. We sent all the needed information to the Greyrose in Edmonton and waited. We recently recieveed word back that they weren't going to assess him because they thought that KCC here in Saskatoon did a good job with the assessment and they would probably get the same result.

It is just so frustrating when you, the school and everyone who has seen him thinks he is Autisic but the medical people won't even look at him or they already have different opinions aren't going to change them. I just don't know where to go from here?

We had an infestation of it in our house this last weekend. Some people say that we shouldn't go out in public for a whole week until it is cleared up. If this is the case then I should take this week off of work, can;t afford to do that. We called the Nurses hotline and they said that if treated properly with the shampoo to kill all the bugs then the nits themselves aren't contagious...the pharmasist also said this.

My opinion is this, number oen I agree with the pharmasist and nurses hotline. number two - to say that we can`t leave the house so that other people don`t catch it, after all the bugs are gone and just the nits(which aren`t contagious because they fall out by themselves), is just not right in opinion. If we have a cold are people going say that we should stay at home so that don`t catch it. That be the same as saying that your kids should stay home from school when there is a virus going around...which is just stupid because you may as well home school then because there is always something going around.

To say that we aren`t allowed at a certain persons house because they scared about catching it, when we are past the contagious stage, is in my opinion...wrong. I mean...what would Jesus do...would he not go to someones house, or have them over to his house(if He had one), because they had head lice...of course not!

New Toys

Remember as kids when you got new toys and then you didn't play with your old ones as much. I do. You have a Nintendo and then a Super Nintendo, Nintendo 64, Playstation, PS2 i think u get the idea. When I bought my computer a few years back I didn't play my playstation for a while and still don't it that much. Now I have a new toy...a laptop. Which sort of makes me more accessible to Colleen and the kids. Because now instead of hiding in the basement I can be upstairs and watch the kids more when Colleen is out or sleeping. I didn't think I would be able to afford a laptop for a while...thank God for Wal-Mart.
