Monday in Novograd (March 16, 2009)

We sprung our little Matthew this morning (well only long enough to get a passport photo made!).  He was so cute when he saw me.  He pulled away from the caretaker and walked to me so that’s a good thing (especially after being away from him for 10 days).
We are working hard on documents and will have a LONG day tomorrow in 3 cities getting everything done.  So I probably won’t post tomorrow and this MAY be the only post today.  Mary is still pretty sick so I’m going to be at the apartment with her as much as possible.  We have to go to the notary today (of course) and sign some stuff, but that’s probably all we’ll do.  We won’t go see Matthew tonight because Mary shouldn’t take the germs in.  We’ll be at the notary anyway.    PLEASE PLEASE pray that she gets better soon!
We love you all and look forward to seeing you all soon.
Psalm 119
1 Blessed are they whose ways are blameless,
who walk according to the law of the LORD.
2 Blessed are they who keep his statutes
and seek him with all their heart.
 3 They do nothing wrong;
they walk in his ways.
 4 You have laid down precepts
that are to be fully obeyed.
 5 Oh, that my ways were steadfast
in obeying your decrees!
 6 Then I would not be put to shame
when I consider all your commands.
 7 I will praise you with an upright heart
as I learn your righteous laws.
 8 I will obey your decrees;
do not utterly forsake me.
Blessed be the Name of the Lord! Be blessed our friends.  We love you.
Kids:  Hold the fort.  It won’t be long.
