Had a month here where we couldn't pay our rent because of vehicle problems, we were selling a vehicle and it just wouldn't sell and our rent was 3 weeks past due. In the past I would have freaked out, been a complete wreck, not sleeping, the works. As it was though it was barely a blip on the stress radar.

Obviously I'm not saying to take a do nothing "God will provide" stance that I sometimes see in some people. It's about balance. Doing what you can to help the situation, even if it seems to be only a tiny fraction, then trusting the He's got your back.


Same approach applies to your kids too of course. You do what you can, which may not seem like much, and trust that He's got them.

I understand exactly what you mean. Glad to know we're not the only ones that the Lord saves just barely in time, LOL!

The name Luke is an American baby name. In American the meaning of the name Luke is: Light.
People with this name have a deep inner desire to lead, organize, supervise, and to achieve status, power and wealth.

When my Niece Tiffany was asking for names for her unborn son I said Luke. She jumped up and said that is it! Tiffany’s son is named Luke.
That's awesome Stan, thank you again! So cool that Tiffany brought another sweet Luke into the world, yay! How old is she now?

I love the meaning of his name, I'll have to show it to him. And being the oldest, he does a fine job of leading, organizing, and supervising. I remember noticing around the time he was 13, he started taking on characteristics of a third parent. We'd be sitting in church, for example, in our big long row, all eight of us, and if one of the younger ones was fidgeting around, Luke would lean over, kind of point his finger at them, and quietly say, "Hey, cut it out," or something like that. I remember feeling immensely amused when I saw that.

Thanks, Stan. Good to know. My youngest son's name is Luke. Although at the time it was because we were doing a Bible study on the book of Luke.

And, secretly, I get to whisper "Luke, I am your father" in my cheesy Darth Vader voice imitation any time I want.


The name LUKE is just flat COOL!

"Luke, I am your father"
LOVE IT! Way to go BD. Got to keep some humor or we will all go boozo

By the way, Chris Farley said on SNL "Luke, I am your father"
For humor that is the one that counts for me.

Little Luke is two, will be 3 in October.

Dori, sounds like your Luke fits his name like a glove!

Luke got hit so hard with his unexpected death of his father yet he steps up to the plate and is taking care of business, even doing the funeral thing. WOW what a young mature strong man!

No wonder you are so proud of him Dori!

So tomorrow we leave for the lovely weekend ahead. Three hours to St Louis, pick up one daughter at airport, spent the night in St Louis. Get up next morning, drive 3.5 hours to town where funeral is. Spend night at hotel there. Next morning get up for another 3 hour drive to get back to our town so my husband can get to work on time. It's a great big triangle.

Worried about my kids beyond belief. Annie, who had called me several times in the first few days, has now gone incognito. can't get ahold of her.

I also feel like I can't breathe for some reason. It's very uncomfortable.

Continued prayers are much appreciated.

Thanks Stan. I bet little Luke is very cute. Big Luke is having problems because he can't find his dad's will. He thinks it's in his safety deposit box at bank but they - of course - wouldn't let him get into it because his name's not on it. I think this is the beginning of paperwork nightmare for him.

A death certificate should be enough for them to allow kin to open it, at least I would think so.
