BONUS DAY #192

I was able to meet up and catch up with a long time friend today.  He gave me some advice and asserted himself into a couple situations I was facing.  It reminded how important friends are in our journey of life.  God provides us with wise counsel to learn from and apply.  We need each other.

BONUS DAY # 191

I was delighted to be able to start teaching on this year’s project from Psalm 37.  It is a great chapter in a great book of the Bible.  I was lined up to lead a spiritual renewal challenge at a Church in Indiana and am using Psalm 37 to lead it.  The people are open and listening–which is critical in spiritual renewal.  I am very appreciative to be able to teach the Bible during a Bonus Day.

Every day is a Bonus Day.

Bonus Day #190

So on Bonus Day 190 I stay up late watching two of my favorite College Football Teams to follow–on at the same time–on ABC and Fox.  Both lose their games at the very end!  I was pretty bummed out laying in bed thinking about both teams I watched for the last 3 hours and one of them into over time, then it occurred to me–AT LEAST I AM ENJOYING A BONUS DAY!

Every day is a Bonus Day.

Bonus Day #189

This morning while packing boxes for our move I realized that we were packing up (having sold our house and the house we purchased is falling through because of a bad inspection)  I thought about Abraham packing up his household because said “pack up and go to the land I will tell you.”  Abraham didn’t know where he was going either.  At least we are in good company.  Ha!

Bonus Day #188

We had a huge disappointment on our new home today.  The inspection revealed some big problems with the new home.  The builder/owner got rushed to list before the winter and said things were on the house that weren’t.  Our house is sold but we don’t know where we are going next.  Things are getting interesting…..

Bonus Day #187

We thought we lost a key FOB for one of our cars.  The decision was to get a new one lined up in case we lost the one we had left.  (After looking everywhere, including the trash, TWICE).  Marceil called the dealership and lined it up–$267 for a FOB programmed for our car.  After the order was in, we found the missing one.  Now what to do?  Call the dealership and cancelling, or go ahead and follow through.  We decided to follow through.  Although we now have three different FOB’s for the car, I think it is important to NOT make your problem someone else’s problem.  Everything happens for a reason.  There are things more important than an extra FOB, like leaving a small dealership hanging.

Every day is a Bonus Day.

Bonus Day #186

I thought we lived in a villa and had downsized when we moved in.  The truth is, after talking to a professional mover today, I found out it is going to take 6 men 9 hours and 3 trucks to move us out of our home and into the new one.  You might say that we have a lot of “stuff.”  How much “stuff’ does a person (or our case, two people) need?  I guess the answer in our case is–THREE TRUCKS WORTH!  HA!

Every day is a Bonus Day.

Much Love,

Bonus Day #185

We sold our house and put an offer on the new one.  The coordination of the “closing” date is something to behold.  It is like dominoes when it comes to things falling into place.  Right now we are packing boxes.  Stay tuned.

Every day is a Bonus Day.

Much Love,

Bonus Day #184

The power was out for four hours today.  Funny how we take electricity for granted.  I found myself checking the utility website every few minutes seeing if there was any update on the recovery of the power…promptly using up too much power from my battery.  How do you conserve when you don’t know how long the power is going to be off?  The truth is, we take too many things for granted, not just the power.

Every day is a Bonus Day.

Bonus Day #183

Interesting thing about being a Grandfather that I didn’t notice being a Father:  the older I get the faster the kids get…..tag–hide and seek–any activity I slow up…they speed up…and then it occurred to me:  I’M JUST GLAD TO SHOW UP!

Every day is a Bonus Day.

Much Love,
