My the time flies.  We're soon going to be a quarter through the entire year.  Unbelievable.

My dad is in the hospital.  He couldn't breathe very well so he went to emergency yesterday.  They expect him to be released tomorrow.  He's had some bronchitis since December and they say now COPD.  No results from the x-rays or tests, so nothing is conclusive yet.  Our last telephone conversation he said he needs to explain everything to me because I'm a slow thinker.  He used the word "d*ck" while explaining to me about his daily use of the catheter.  I pray to God if I get old that I don't get mean. 

One time I sat next to an old gentleman on a plane trip who told me that his family paid his whole ticket, round trip, so he would go see them.  I could tell why.  Really I could.  He was a pleasure to sit next to and he was so genuine - he wasn't putting on airs.  I pray I can be like him someday.  What a blessing he must have been to his family and his family to him.  That is what I wish to be like.

I'm in the process of applying to Southwestern Baptist Theological Seminary.  I'm working on writing my testimony.  Been working on it three weeks.  It's not coming along because I have such a dull testimony.  I submitted my transcripts already so that part is done.  Check.

Our Friday Bible study is going well still.  I'm getting a leetle bit of Gospel of John lesson prep fatigue.  I might choose another topic for this Friday.  I'm leaning toward doing a short talk on order of doctrine based on an article written by Albert Mohler called "A Call for Theological Triage and Christian Maturity."

Did three new routines for Zumba Tuesday and class really liked them.

What to comment on first? Okay, I've read your blog over the years and you are not a slow thinker. You are very articulate and I love the way you put thoughts and ideas together. Don't allow that criticism to take hold.

Two, they say in old age that our true character emerges. I'm confident that you'll be a sweet ol' lady that everyone will want to be around (and you'll probably look ten times better than all the other old ladies too).

Three, I've watched over the years as you have grown in your Christian faith and I wouldn't say your testimony is dull at all. I don't know how you first came to Christ, but that's only part of the story. Write about your whole journey and I'm sure it will be exciting and a blessing to read.

Blessings, Jules
