Every time I turn around it feels like time is racing by. Where does it go and why is it so easy for it to pass so quickly?
In the last month we celebrated Ron’s birthday – how can he be 67? We didn’t do anything special because we didn’t have any money, so we ate dinner and watched a movie and enjoyed being together.
In the last month, we both saw our new PCP ~ since Spring of 2022 Ron has lost over 40 lbs!!! My A1C went from a 10.0 to 7.0. I saw a new opthamologist and got a great bill of eye health – no signs of diabetes, the cataract surgery still looks great and the left eye socket looks great ~ I do have an upcoming appointment with the ocularist for an eye cleaning and to see how the prosthesis is holding up…this eye is almost 10 years old! The longest I have ever gone without having to have a new eye made or the socket to be rebuilt. That is all great news ~ thank you Jesus for this great report!!!
In the last month, we became members of Love Springs Baptist Church ~ this is something we have not done at all during our years of RV’ing and traveling around the US ~ becoming members of a different church. We have attended many different churches, still call two churches our home church: Northwood Chapel in Blaine, WA. Even though we have only physically set foot in Northwood a couple of handfuls of times in the last 12 years, Northwood will always be our church home and church family…so many memories and so many friends that we are able to keep in touch with over the miles. Open Door Baptist Church called to us as we prepared to move from Branson, MO to Cedarcreek, MO to begin our work at GUMI Camp USA in December 2014 and our move in January 2015. ODBC, along with Isaac & Bethany Pederson, the Nantz and Daugherty families as well as so many others welcomed us with open arms. From the first time we stepped in the door we knew we were home! We miss both of our church families from Blaine and Cedarcreek! And now we are celebrating the Lord has brought us to a new church family at Love Springs Baptist Church in Cowpens, SC! From the first text message I sent, to the many messages and Facebook posts, to the first time we walked in the door we have felt at home. Our new pastor, PR, loves the Lord, preaches the Word and is one of the best encouragers and challengers I have ever met. In the last month I went to the first of hopefully many, ladies fellowship events and I look forward to connecting with the ladies in the future. Ron and I have attended several of the Springer’s (those of us over 51) events and have enjoyed getting to know some of the couples in the church. One of the most amazing things to have happened since we began attending LSBC is to see Ron’s growth in his relationship with the Lord ~ he raises his arms in song and even took notes one Sunday…for those of you who know Ron, both of those are new things for him to try!!! I laughed when I told PR that the way the Lord is working in Ron’s life I wouldn’t be surprised if he starts dancing in the aisles one of these days 😂.
And we changed sites at our campground. There are lots of changes on the horizon (which we can’t publicly share yet). Our new site is much bigger, has a great area for a firepit and we have a great view of the entrance to the campground. This is the view from our old site (#37)
and our new site #21!
if you look closely you can see 4 of the 6 yarn totes! 🤣 to the left of the trailer is a grassy area then just a short walk to the office/pool area
And here’s the inside as it is coming together hiding behind the TV is our little freezer! & if you are sitting in one of the recliners you have a great view of the TV! behind the Futon is the view of the grassy area and events center.
So that’s what we’ve been up to!!! What have y’all been doing?
