Ryan’s Miracle Watch 9/29/19

As you know, we’ve spent many a day (way too many) in the hospital as a result of Ryan’s injury. I’m happy to say today was not one of them. As a result of having spent so many days in the hospital, however, I’ve learned too many things I wish I didn’t have to, such as the following medical words and their meanings:

Study up y’all! There will be a test on these tomorrow…

TRUTH   noun:   a fact that has been verified

1 Corinthians 13:4-6   Love is patient, love is kind. It does not envy, it does not boast, it is not proud. It does not dishonor others, it is not self-seeking, it is not easily angered, it keeps no record of wrongs. Love does not delight in evil but rejoices with the truth.

John 14:6   Jesus answered, “I am the way and the truth and the life. No one comes to the Father except through me.

John 8:32   Then you will know the truth, and the truth will set you free.

Twas a hot one today; hot for here anyway…about 97, give or take. Looks like it may be the last hot day for a while, however, as tomorrow’s forecast is a mere 80. The days to follow drop even further into the high 60’s to low 70’s. Ahh! Thank God for fall!!

Was watering Janine’s plants while she’s away (had to say that out loud), and for my thoughtful efforts got stung by a bee. I got my revenge, though. Let’s just say the bee now has X’s for its eyes. My McGuyver-like thinking kicked in, and I applied Tecnu (commonly used for poison oak) to the sting spot to draw out any poison which may have been injected. Worked like a charm too! No swelling, stinging or irritability whatsoever. Tecnu can also be used as a skunk repellent, pothole filler, charcoal starter and substitute for toothpaste. Not really, but it is amazing stuff. That’s my Tecnu plug for the day…

Ryan had another fantastic day…fantastic for him, anyway. Here’s to praying God will heal him tonight, so tomorrow he can share with the world all of the things he and God were talking about while he rested…

Another day in the rear view mirror…another day closer to Christmas! Yay!! That’s right! Christmas is just around the corner. Can you believe it? I can’t. Time is moving at warp speed…

Ryan had an excellent day today. He slept for a good part of my shift, but when he awoke, he was so chillaxed. It’s difficult to describe how peaceful it is in the room when he’s like that. And, when I went in just now to say goodnight to him, I was told he was the same throughout the rest of the day. Ryan’s been chill since he was born, and it’s really cool (in the very best sense of the word. In fact, the definition of cool in the dictionary is Ryan. I copied the following from Webster’s:

COOL   noun: Ryan

Ya gotta love a good blonde joke every now and then…or insert the hair color of your choice…

After becoming very frustrated with the attitude of one of the shopkeepers, the young blonde declared, ‘Well, then, maybe I’ll just go out and catch my own alligator and get a pair of alligator shoes for free!’

The shopkeeper replied with a sly smile, ‘Well, little lady, why don’t you go give it a try?’

The blonde headed off to the swamp, determined to catch an alligator. Later in the day, the shopkeeper was driving home and spotted the young woman standing waist-deep in the murky water, shotgun in hand.

He saw a huge 9-foot gator swimming rapidly toward her. With lightning reflexes, the blond took aim, shot the creature and hauled it up onto the slippery bank.

Nearby were 7 more dead gators all lying belly up. The shopkeeper watched in amazement as the blond struggled with the gator. Then, rolling her eyes, she screamed in frustration…


Ryan smiled at this one…

Janine left town on business (at least I think it’s business…maybe monkey?) for the week, so once again Ryan and I have been left to fend/forage for ourselves. Fortunately, I know how to cook, and we’ll be eating like kings for the next several days. Tonight’s main course…

Will someone please give me a call if I miss a post? Better yet, call 911, and send the cavalry…then try calling me…

Did you know:

The wingspan of a giant albatross can reach up to 12 feet?

The common swift is able to fly continuously for 10 months, without touching down for even a second?

Ostriches have the largest eyes of any land animal?

Owls devour their prey whole?

Budgies catch each other’s yawns?

You’re now smarter than you were a moment ago. Or dumber…

Ryan enjoys learning new things…or not…

We often hear, “Life is short…better enjoy it!”

How about, “Eternity is long…better prepare for it.”

Titus 3:4-7   But when the kindness and love of God our Savior appeared, he saved us, not because of righteous things we had done, but because of his mercy. He saved us through the washing of rebirth and renewal by the Holy Spirit, whom he poured out on us generously through Jesus Christ our Savior, so that, having been justified by his grace, we might become heirs having the hope of eternal life.

Happy Friday Y’all!!

Sorry I missed writing this at 9:19 this evening…

Today Ryan and I watched the recording of last night’s America’s Got Talent; winner revealed. We had Cody Lee for the win since his first audition. It was a no-brainer! People like Cody inspire me to no end…certainly I can do better…and I should be laughing and smiling every step of the way…

Psalm 100   Shout for joy to the Lord, all the earth. Worship the Lord with gladness; come before him with joyful songs. Know that the Lord is God.It is he who made us, and we are his; we are his people, the sheep of his pasture. Enter his gates with thanksgiving and his courts with praise; give thanks to him and praise his name. For the Lord is good and his love endures forever; his faithfulness continues through all generations.
