Michael does not believe in God. I worry about this a lot and discussed it with the Christian counselor I've been seeing at our church. The counselor suggested that we get in touch with the lead pastor and see if he had any suggestions. Pastor Tom has offered to meet with Michael. Michael being Michael will probably guess what we're up to, so Tom is going to visit on the pretext of seeing how "I'm" doing and if there is anything he can help with prior to my surgery. Devious? Probably, but Tom's not going to preach - it'll just be a get-to-know you session. And if I know Tom, he will view Michael as a challenge. Religious views aside, those two would probably get along very well.

I'm still anxious about it.

Things are still rather tense at the office. Several more changes have been announced, but no more job cuts at least. One of our reinsurers informed us today that they're cutting staff as well. I can only pray that I'm able to weather this storm without too many challenges.

One of my co-workers and I went to Seams Sew Easy for a Christmas in July sale. I got some backing material for the Thimbleberries Lakeside quilt and the borders for the Stash Pot Pie assignment. They had some really cute Christmas things out, but I just wasn't in a mood or financially able to pick those up. Later..........

I've completed all 30 of the blocks going into the Stash Pot Pie assignment and hope to get the entire quilt completely finished by class next month. With Andrea gone on a mini-holiday until Tuesday, I'm hoping I'll have a bit more time to sew this weekend.

Other than that, no plans for the weekend. The house desperately needs a good cleaning. Good time to do it with the kiddies out and about.

I don't think it's devious at all! I think it's a plan and you gotta love it when a plan comes together. I'll be praying it works!

Cathy, one of the things I'm seeing that makes me so proud to be your friend is the way you understand that YOU need to be at some level of peace when it's time to let Michael go. By bringing in your pastor, you'll be able to say that you did everything you could to help Michael in his spiritual journey.

Congratulations on getting all those blocks done. That's impressive!
