Saturday Snippets

Here in Washington State we are flattening the curve so our governor has created a 4-phase approach to opening the state back up. We're headed into Phase 2 soon.

With everything that's going on in our family we've decided to relax some of the restrictions just between us. Sharaya and Allie came over this week and we played some Mexican Train. 

She won that round!

Allie recently got her own cell phone and during the game I caught her taking a selfie! 

We've been texting a lot with Diana, talking about Chuck's appointments and tests so I finally called her to see if she'd want to fly out. But she was already planning to! So now she flies in tomorrow afternoon. We are all SO excited to see her and to just have the family all together again. 

Raiders of the Lost Ark was recently on TV so Chuck and I turned out the lights and watched it like we were in the theater. It's what we did on our very first date. 💓 It was in 1981 at Grossmont Center in San Diego, back when most theaters only had one screen. We stood in line a long time and when the showing before ours got out, we asked them if they liked it, was it good?!

My mom took this right after we started dating.

Today was Chuck's MRI and he told me that he got to choose the music - Contemporary Christian. He heard WayMaker, Surrounded (This is how we fight our battles) It is Well With My Soul... he was weeping by the time it was over. He said God's presence was so strong in that room! His next appointment is on Tuesday, when we get the results.

I want to thank all of you for your prayers. The Lord heard and answered every single one! Even though we haven't met most of you, we could not do this without you! You have blessed us so much, we're so thankful for all of you!

Happy to hear you had a family gathering and it sounds like it was a lot of fun. I'm so pleased to hear that Chuck felt the presence of God around him. I am praying for him.

Our Savior loves and cares for us. Such a comfort. How sweet that you will all be together soon. We've loosened our family restrictions, too.

Hi Cindy~

Love this post! I'm so glad you have family surrounding you right now, what a blessing.

You two are so adorable! I love that you re-created that first date, what a fun way to make memories!

I love Chuck's testimony, and I love how the Spirit whispered to him through it!

You guys are still in our prayers, good luck next week

Hugs and Love,

Sending all good thoughts for the test results. I love the warmth in this post. Lots of love here. Haven't played Mexican Train in ages and that's such fun!
