Gathering Graces 7/16/2018

*Today was a particularly long day.  Which is a rather funny thing to say, because each day consists of 24 hours.  But those hours seemed to be full to the brim today.
*It was a busy day at the mine tour.  It was fun to see Betsy Bethke,  a woman from Coeur d’Alene I met last spring who is a member of P.E.O.  I enjoyed visiting with her, and meeting some of her family.
*Things were hopping at the mine tour today.  I rode the trolley up to the mine tunnel to take a photo of one of our miner guides, Lenny Hoiland, so I can feature him on of the Sierra Silver Mine Tour Facebook posts.  Lenny is a great guide, and always gets glowing reviews from our customers.
*After work, I picked Paul up at home and we went to Kellogg Middle School to attend a dinner and meeting for the volunteers who will be putting on the Dare to Imagine Summer Camp next week.  Paul and I are helping out during the week, sharing a Bible lesson each morning with students, then doing some Drama activities with students throughout the week.  I am really looking forward to next week.  I feel like I have been a bit self-absorbed with all the changes going on in my life, and it will be nice to focus on these first through fourth graders and showing them love as we “Speak Life” (the theme of the week) into their lives.
*I had put some lamb chops in a marinade a couple days ago, and decided they should be cooked and eaten tonight.  So I fried them up, and Paul and I enjoyed some lamb chops, fresh pea pods dipped in Tsaziki, and some marinated feta cheese.  What a beautiful evening on our patio as we each read and enjoying the peace of our backyard.
*Around 9 p.m., it was time for bed.  I was tired.  I think I fell asleep the moment my head hit the pillow!!  That mine tour business is hard work...lol!

Hi Carol - I'm a former student of Bill's in English at Whitworth and we reconnected on FB in a small Whitworth group. I have read your blog since the beginning (linked thru Bill's FB and often want to comment on your blog, but don't to be invasive (for instance, cute outfit today!). I lost both my parents one year apart 2016/2017 and really related to your posts about your mom. It was very comforting, just as Bill's 3BT have been. Your faith has also comforted me. Thank you.
