It is Tuesday August 11, 2009. This is Katherine Denise Waddle. Also known as Roo (Tau Beta Sigma nickname), Waddlewoman (band friend Carin nickname), and Sideshow (Cal Baptist nickname). I am not dead and the rapture has not occurred so that means God is not through with me yet.
So I have no internet or cable at my place. The wind blew, the line got knocked loose, and I have been without since yesterday morning. Time Warner is coming this afternoon. Yay! As much as I say every time I see one of the Love Comes Softly movies or the Disney version of Little House on the Prairie that I would love to have lived in the 1800's, I do like technology. And Soap Net, and laptops, and high speed internet :)
So I am praying a lot these days. I made a list of 14 things last night to pray for on a regular basis - I can handle more - but those were the 14 things I could think of off the top of my head. I did what Dr. Jeffress suggested to do one time. Make a list on one side and write down your prayer requests and then on the other side list God's answers. So I am doing that. And now I am praying for each and every one of those things. It is important because I want to be consistent in my prayer life to grow closer to God, to see how He moves in my life, and to see how He changes me. I did wake up in the middle of the night to pray. I do that sometimes. And I had Standing on the Promises in my head again. I felt such peace after I had poured out my heart and I was thankful to God for that song being in my head. It is a song that God is using to help me through.
Yesterday my baby nieces (well they are not babies anymore - they are 13 almost 14) started band camp. I am soooo very proud of them for continuing to be in band. Four more years and they can do college band and join Tau Beta Sigma :) Yay! Although take your time getting to age 18 - I still remember when they were babies and when I made one of them cry because I tripped and fell over the baby gate while carrying scissors - Aunt Kathi fell down and made a loud noise lol Aunt kathi was glad she didn't hurt herself too badly - only a cut on my hand.
Okay I am posting CHiPs. Linda you ought to have a good laugh at this. Did you get to watch this before the tv died and your dad didn't get another one for a very loooong time? Lindsay this is classic television for you.
