Onward and Upward

I was going to blog about the $1800 expense that our van incurred this week, but that's depressing.  So let's talk about something else:  FOOTBALL!

The Huskers play their first official game of the 2008 season today!  I'm so bummed because a.) I'm not there, and b.) my computer won't let me listen to the live radio broadcast for some reason.  And it's not televised.  To say I'm frustrated is an understatement, but in the grand scheme of things this is not a big deal.  Right?  

And really, neither is the van.  In the end, what does it really matter?  

And I will admit I'm trying to keep it all in perspective.

Even as I write it, this sounds so silly!

BUT THE HUSKERS.  They are playing today.  Sigh.

And my van.  I can think of a million other ways I'd rather spend that kind of money. 

And still, in the end, what does it matter?  Onward and upward.

If it makes you feel any better- we started getting quotes on windows. WOW- to replace 100 year old windows is going to be expensive. Just to replace Joshua's windows (he's got lots of windows in his bedroom) will cost $3,000!!! YIKES.

But it's good to keep an eternal perspective right? It's all the Lord's anyway.

I'm glad your van is fixed!!!
