I have finished putting the photos in the Jan. 19-31 post, and the Feb. 1-8 post.
February 9 - Monday
We started the day by having breakfast at "Charlie's"--the best kept secret of "Mom & Pop's" Café's in Burley. We always go there when Julie or Julie & John and their family are in Burley.
Before we left, here's Max guarding Grampa and Rigdon.
Here's who Max is guarding...
Then we let Grampa and Max off at home while Julie got her van lubed at Wal*Mart. I didn't know that there was a lube place at the northeast side of Wal*Mart. I asked them how long they'd been there.
"Fifteen years," the head man said.
I then asked how long Wal*Mart had been there.
We shopped for some things for the bedrooms, like a bed-side lamp and wastebaskets. Then we went home for an afternoon rest.
But that little pill, Rigdon, only sleeps about 20 minutes at a time, so Julie didn't get a nap. She actually has had little sleep during these past five months since Rigdon joined their family on September 4, 2014.
Later that day we bought a few more things for the house, then worked on unpacking the last of the boxes that were shipped home for us from El Salvador.
Julie answered two of our prayers:
1. My Book of Mormon that I've had for years had not shown up in any of the boxes. We were down to the last few of the 65 boxes.
2. All the copies of Walt's talks he gave at Stake Conferences and other meetings had not shown up, either.
JULIE FOUND THEM!
We are so relieved and extremely happy!
Then Julie took down the blue Christmas lights from the front of the house.
Walt helped but couldn't climb up on the step ladder, and with both shoulders being injured he can't reach them above his head.
We so appreciate Julie staying this extra day to help us.
John, Jacee, and Jackson...thanks for sharing her.
And that was our family home evening activity.
Out of time again tonight. Have to finish this post later.
I will be working on my power presentation for the program at our Serendipity Study Club for Thursday, Feb. 19.
We hope you have had a nice Valentine's Day, and today have had a peaceful and restful Sabbath Day.
In Gospel Doctrine class today, Sunday, February 15, we were taught about the miracles of Christ.
Our wonderful teacher, Bonnie Fronk, said we each have many miracles each day.
We acknowledge the many miracles and tender mercies we have had from the Lord each day and are so thankful for each one!
We testify that Jesus is our Savior and Redeemer and because of His Infinite Atonement for each one of us, we look forward to the greatest miracle of all: The surety of the resurrection and being able to be with our families for Eternity.
Our resurrection has been paid for by the Savior. We will each receive that miracle.
Our exaltation depends on how we live our life.
We repent daily of our wrong doings and pray we will live to be able to be together forever.
Of this we testify, in the Name of Jesus Christ. Amen.
Walt and Eileen Petersen
May you have a great week coming.
