Well, the two weeks holidays are over...
I really enjoyed them and was very, very busy. I am glad to be back into a routine with Sean and the house work though. I have neglected this blog and other things so I hope to spend some time up dating etc. However, I had continued to visit you guys and have been uplifted and straightened by you so thank you.
The first major thing I have to say is that we as a family managed to give out over 2,000 Christian tracts along with some leaflets Niall was getting payed to put into letter boxes around the town to supplement our income. I am very happy about this and I feel the Lord really gave us a slap on the back when a man came to our service on Sunday morning because he saw me and Niall giving out tracts in the area where he lives and received one through his door:0)
Thank you God for encouraging us and keeping us going.
We are tipping away slowly with the Bible distribution.
How do you eat a whole elephant?
One bite at a time!
How do you give out over 1,200 Bibles?
One box at a time!
One of the LONG term things that is happening in our household is that we are getting a dog! I know, I know, I said I would never get one but...
The main reason I changed my mind is because of Sean. He is an only child and he needs a dog. I really think he does and that the time is right. The thing that in my mind makes it dooable is the fact that I have decided to be it's main carer.
Sean has had fish and more recently two hamsters and training him up to look after them had been, at times, a major pain. I just couldn't face having to train Sean to train the dog, so I am taking the lion's share of the burden! Once I made up my mind to do this it all fell into place. I hope I won't regret this horribly, especially since we will probably still have it when Sean has moved out!
I have a pile of books I need to read through and I am still working on Sean's quilt for his birthday. As you can guess, I have been doing a bit of walking with the door to door work but for now, until the 2,000 newspapers come in two weeks, I think I will get back into walking around the area where I live.
Sean is doing ok. He is very excited about his puppy. We went over to look at them and he picked one out. The mother of the pup is a cross between a German shepherd and a collie. She is small enough and has a beautiful nature. She was quite happy to let us handle her pups. The pup's dad is a Labrador so we think Sean's pup will be just lovely. We hope to be collecting HIM, (photo on Sean's blog) within a fortnight. First we have to secure the garden with chicken wire to keep him in, get a kennel and also bowls, lead, collar etc.
