Whew! It's Finally Fixed

(This is the inscription that David Shantz wrote on the stick he gave me. Click on the image so you can read it better.)

Dear Pals:

What a relief! We finally resolved my computer problems and I can now log on, enter new posts and comment on your postings! What a blessing! You'll never know how frustrating this was for the last few weeks.

Now I just have to get this ear infection cleared up and find out if my camera can be fixed. I'm still waiting to hear back from SONY. I took the camera in to the service center in Toronto last Wednesday.

Regarding my infection, I see my specialist next Thursday. I went to a naturopath two days ago and he discovered a number of things that are causing me to be "SICK". I'll begin taking some herbal remedies when they come in early next week. We'll see if that helps. I'm so sceptical about alternative medicines but I'm willing to try these.

My sick leave from Christian Horizons began yesterday and I won't be going back until November 27th. Please pray that this time off will be beneficial so I can get rejuvenated physically...and every other way as well.

Tomorrow the boys and I are driving down to Buffalo, NY. They have Thursday and Friday off at their school. On Friday we'll drive over to Rochester, NY to see our friend David Shantz. Some of you commented on the fact that the Florida Panthers called him up to be their back-up goaltender in Toronto last week. It was a thrill for him needless to say. We're really looking forward to seeing David. He has been such a wonderful friend to Matthew and Nathan!

I'll close for now but I'm excited that I can be more regular with my posts and comments.

Finally, my friends, be strong in the Lord and in the power of His might. - adapted from Ephesians 6:10
I love you all!

I am so glad that your computers are fixed David and that we will be hearing from you more.

Praying that they will find out what is wrong with your ear.
Boy!.. you sure have to wait long,eh?
Dad Golden was told that he has to wait until mid November for his surgery!

You better get that camera fixed too!
Maybe you better get a small camera just to use in times like this.
Did you see the good pictures that Felisol posted on her blog?
They are just fantastic and she said she took them with her cell phone..

Dearest Pilgrim,

I sure hope you feel well soon.

When I started scrolling down and I saw that familiar stick I said aloud, "David Shantz!" and I soon had a crowd of three younger ones. I recognized it from when you posted it on Scribblings. So he's back at the farm team? I just looked at the Transactions list yesteday, and didn't see his name...I must have missed it.

May the Lord bless you and keep you and make His face to shine upon you, and grant you His Shalom.
