Through the Fog

"I have swept away your offenses like a cloud, your sins like the morning mist. Return to me, for I have redeemed you." Isaiah 44:22

Dark and dreary; it was a good morning for sleeping. The fog rolled in mid morning and settled upon us like cool, wet blanket. The orchard trees appeared ghostly and cold. It would have been a perfect afternoon for sleeping too had it not been for all the traffic through the house between the hours of 1 and 3 pm. Both Emma and I gave up on catching a nap though Bella was able to get one.

The fog has moved on now leaving behind a cover of gray clouds and wet pavement. My sleepiness lingers and a warm shower is in order. It is Monday and tonight the folks at the nursing home will be awaiting our arrival. How many names can I remember tonight? Emily, Betty, Adelle, Dee, Lucy, Edna, Janet, Nancy, Kathleen, Florence, Mary,...


  1. Keep it up and you will be suprised how many you will remember... It took me a month to know all 68 of the residents, but I was with them 8-12 hrs a day.

  2. Yes, Chelsie. Betty is a sweetheart and I love her Australian accent.

    Judi, with only 1 hour or less each week, I guess I'm not doing too bad.

  3. There is something mysterious about fog, isn't there? I love it when it settles down around our house. The picture of the apple tree is wonderful!

    I know those folks at the nursing home will enjoy your group!

  4. I am very impressed that you go to the nursing home like that. I am certain you yourself will be blessed as much as or more than the old folks. Paul and some of our older kids have gone to one before to play some music, and they would really like to do it more...

  5. I absolutely love that picture!
