Through the Windowpane
“For now we see in a mirror, darkly; but then face to face: now I know in part;
but then shall I know fully even as also I was fully known.”
1 Corinthians 13:12
Grandpa:”I need “three” prunes!”
Jill:”You’ve been leaving one in the dish every day for the last week. I’m only giving you two.”
Grandpa:”I “NEED” three prunes!
Jill:”Only if you’re going to eat them. I don’t want to have to go to the store any sooner then I have to. I run a tight ship! You were in the Army . . . I mean Navy . . . I mean Air Force! Don’t “mess” with the mess hall!
If you want three prunes, you’d better eat them!”
Grandpa’s wide awake this morning. Says to hubby, “You need to run for president, RFN (Robert Frank Novak).
Then he says, “That would make you the first lady.”
“Oh, I forgot about that part, I said. “No, way!”
We all agreed that once a year there should be a day when politicians can only use sign language. We can see them all gesturing: gimme, gimme, gimme!
While he was in the nursing home, he prayed that he would have a room someday all by himself where he could write. And he asked for a room with a view, too. His bedroom has windows on three sides facing north, south, and east. So, technically this move is all a result of Grandpa’s prayers – not to mention mine. Sometimes we have to wait a long time, but God is faithful!
Today when I walked in Grandpa’s house today it was pretty warm. The air conditioning off. We’ve been turning it off at night lately because Grandpa gets so cold. But Eric had dressed him in a flannel shirt which we often do because he’s sitting around an air conditioned house all day. Eric was totally oblivious to the fact that it was 80 degrees in the house. Grandpa was real sleepy. I wonder why? I changed him into a short sleeve shirt and he was a lot more comfortable. There’s something in the air, though. I’m really sleepy, too . Have been all day.
