Less than 3 days left!!!!

For our Hidden Treasures auction benefiting Princess Penny (and Princess Julie too-who began her journey in the same orphanage as Penny.)  Our family is absolutely in awe of the generosity of all of those who have donated, and that of those who are bidding so generously to help us get our girls home. File under 'Abundantly more than you can think or imagine'.

Life is trucking along here at Casa de 'Zinger at what appears to be the stable, make-you-want-to-chew-a-bottle-of-Tums, pace  that has set the tone for the entire summer. My mom had another scare with complications from her cancer, necessitating a week's stay in the hospital again. I was fortunate to be able to sneak up to see her on Tuesday. She's home again, briefly, but still HOME. Round 3 begins Friday.  We've had a bit of a virus running about the house too (it seems to be running about a lot of places) with some fever and generally feeling like dirt. Mr. P seemed to take the brunt of it this go 'round (someones got to, right?) running up a temp of 104!  Needless to say, not to much time to blog, so please accept my apologies for being so slack here. Work is still work. Busy, crazy, best nursing staff ever. Ce la vie....

No news yet on travel dates. We were warned to expect a minimum 4-6 week lag, and honestly, having already seen the evidence of God's wisdom in not bringing the much anticipated 'travel around the first of July' into fruition, I am doing much better in being still in the waiting ;) Of course, the circling insanity (and complete lack of sleep) could be helping too, but the other sounds much more noble! We can't get a drop of news about Julie, but were updated that Penny has not one, but TWO babas working with her. Again, abundantly more....

Well, that is absolutely all that is new, exicting, &/or crazy in these parts. The weather is lovely, and the grocery shopping is well over due, so I am off!

 

Now to him who is able to do immeasurably more than all we ask or imagine, according to his power that is at work within us, to him be glory in the church and in Christ Jesus throughout all generations, for ever and ever! Amen.

Ephesians 3:20- 21 (NIV)
