We are a family of 3 Christians,  my husband, our adult son who has autism, living with us and myself. (I didn’t include our daughter, not living here, basically, this title was open.)  We attend a Bible-teaching church.  Before I was too disabled to do volunteer youth ministry, that and women’s Bible study, were the high points of my week.  Our son is active in a Bible study group and attends worship regularly.  Hubs is usually in too much pain to sit there, I can’t always attend worship either. We go when able and the sermons are available online.  

Getting the best possible price for whatever we’re buying is the way we shop for everything.  Our local thrift shop owners recognize us when we come in. We’ve bought from them, they’ve bought from us.  When physically able, we visit other thrifts further away.  When the combination of my chronic illnesses were at their worst I needed a power wheelchair even in our small ranch style home.  Now, thank you God, I only need to use it when I need to walk much distance (for me) such as a grocery store (I need someone with me to push the carriage), doctor’s offices not near the entry, things we take for granted til they’re gone.  I honestly do not know how people without Jesus who have similar circumstances get through without becoming very bitter.   We all have challenges, these are ours, yours may well be very different, but it’s part of life.

I mentioned our independent adult daughter, who is older than her brother.  She’s engaged to a great guy, obviously very much in love. They live close by and we see them often.

We have found sedentary things we enjoy doing .  He’s into FaceBook, making family albums, etc.. has VHS tapes (yeah they still exist) of old westerns he loves to watch and loves classical music and is a voracious reader.  For me it’s crafts–knitting, crocheting, sewing, re-purposing things, etc.  I also read my study Bible and, obviously, spend time on the computer.

I’m sure that’s all you’d want to know about us and more.  Thanks for your time and interest and God Bless.
