Is there a storm brewing?

Storm Warning
Billy Graham is a man of God.  Billy is seemingly always focused on Christ and this book is no different.  These times we live in are full of anxiety, stress and fear.  We never know what tomorrow will bring. Many of us wonder what the end times will look like and if we are living in them now.  

The book takes us on a journey through the end-time prophecies that can be found in the bible. I don’t feel like I finished up the book feeling more at peace or more confused.  I am grateful that my faith points me back to Jesus when I have all these new questions.

I do admire Billy Graham and his faithfulness to our God. His ministries bring God all the glory. Apparently this is a revision of his original book that was written in 1992.  We all know there have been many more “storms” that have come since then. Why don’t you read a copy today and tell us what you think?

It was a free book through and took me, SERIOUSLY, years to read.  They offer books for free if we blog about them.  No one is required to write anything positive or negative, just our honest opinions. I honestly finally read it because I wanted to get a new book.

Not good

Jason starting throwing up this morning. We took Alli to school and then I asked him if he was good for a quick run to the commissary (co-misery). He said yeah. So we parked and were 1/2 way to the door and he started throwing up again. I felt completely horrible. I thought he threw up the first time from his motrin. I thought I must not have given him enough to eat with it.

Right in the middle of the poor kid throwing up, a sweet lady (who was also a mother with her 2 year old) came running out to us with paper towels. I have no idea who she was or what her name was, but I am forever blessed by her kindness.

Now to get back to work!

Jason's Cast

Here is Jason's cast. Broken arm from falling from the jungle gym at school. He's been so super brave. He has to keep it on for 6 weeks. However, after 2 weeks they are going to cut it off and see if he can rotate his wrist. If he can, he'll get a cast that does not cover his elbow. If he cannot, back to this type of cast.

The 411 on the Schroeders

So what's happening with us...

Jeff is working day shift, YEAH!

Alli is such a fabulous reader that she is in an advanced readers course (which by the way, we didn't know).

Jason is also doing great with reading! They both take 15 minutes at night to read to us.

I am teaching 2 classes this session. Of course I am loving it! I've had to do some tweaking of my schedule and it's still a little chaotic.

One of my dear Cupcakes is leaving the island next week. It is very sad to see a friend leave. I am super excited for her and her family though because they are going to AMERICA! And they will be able to see their family!!!

Today is the first day of the kids' Spring break. Nothing exciting yet but that is going to be short lived. We have a week of fun with friends coming up. I will do my best to document the fun with my camera and post on the blog.

I'm tired of being on the computer, especially since I work on it.

Later Taters!
