My plans to return to downtown Baton Rouge were thwarted by a critter who decided to make its home under the hood of my car and eat through the cover of my braking system, making a nest with the car's insulation. So, it's in the shop being repaired as well as FUMIGATED. 

Another recent development is an infestation of sod webworms—a horrid pest I didn't even know existed until my lawn turned brown seemingly overnight. I kept seeing these little white moths everywhere, not giving them much thought. Now I know that they are the next stage of the webworms, and by the time you see those, it's too late. A lawn professional confirmed my suspicions and will be out next Tuesday to hopefully come up with a plan to eradicate the pests and revive my grass. Apparently, it's a big problem for a lot of folks this year. Of course! 2020 continues to be an unrelenting pain in the _______ (fill in the blank).

Living in the South is not for sissies.

Yes, I've had some curveballs this week, but I still cling to my faith and put my hope in our Creator, God. I can sit here and cry about the damage to the lawn and car, or I can be thankful that I have the monetary means to make the necessary repairs. Also, our bible class did a practice Zoom meeting today and we will resume in-person class to finish our study of Daniel next week. If some are uncomfortable meeting in person, they have the option of joining us via Zoom. Technology to the rescue! Overall, I am thankful the repair to the car wasn't too expensive and I got to see some friendly faces I hadn't seen since March. God is good.

This is a wall in my breakfast nook. Several times a day I glance at it and am comforted.
Praise be to the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Father of compassion and the God of all comfort, who comforts us in all our troubles, so that we can comfort those in any trouble with the comfort we ourselves receive from God. 1 Corinthians 1:3-4
