Packers Game Traditions

We love them. We rarely dabble in the Packers traditions, due to the fact that we have regular cable (good old 12 channels!), not satellite, and therefore miss most of the Packers games. But not tonight! Much to our joy and anticipation, we found out the other day that WE could watch the PACKERS in our home together! Oh, the elation.

One of the first times I went over to Adam's house (Adam and I were just friends at that point, he was still living with his parents) we watched a Packers game. I remember Lynn, his mom, making Cincinnati Chili, everyone wore Packers shirts (Adam let me borrow one), donned their cheese hats and we had a blast. So, tonight when I got home from church (a full day today, up at 5 and home at 7!) I decided to surprise Adam with his favorite winter chili. It is simmering right now, and he should be home within the hour, in time to catch at least half of the game...I'm off to make sure his Packers shirt is clean and ready. Go Packers! And thank you for broadcasting on regular T.V.!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Attention Prayer Warriors...Another Baby In Need Of Prayer

Seems that my blogs lately concern the yet-to-be-born or a newborn in need of prayer. Praise God, Luke, our nephew who will make his appearance this winter, is doing much better. You can read the details on Lindsay's blog. We thank God for the positive prognosis!!

But my cousin Jenny is in need of prayer. She delivered a 9 pound, 14 oz. baby boy yesterday. He's a whopper! And yes, it was most definitely by c-section, thank the Lord. However, due to some serious breathing problems, Sawyer (LOVE that name!) is in ICU, and as of this afternoon, Jenny had yet to even see him. It sounds like he will be in the hospital for at least the next 2 weeks. Please pray for Jenny as she recovers, continues to mother her 4 year old, Gabby, and for little Sawyer as his lungs learn to breathe on their own. Her husband Jason is a great source of support, but because the hospital is an hour and a half away from their home, I know it will be difficult for him to juggle this situation with work. Jenny is a woman of great faith; following a two year bout with infertility, she miraculously concieved after doctors told her their was literally no hope. Sawyer is their precious miracle, and we all rejoice in seeing God's plan come to pass. Now if we can just get them home!! Thanks for praying...
