#3849: I'd guess it's the power of prayer.

Well, the big visit from brother and sister, which I have been dreading since last week, turned out to be a positive, cordial, and friendly visit with no harsh words whatsoever.

I now feel as if I'm waiting for the other shoe to drop, though I prefer that feeling to what I was expecting this to be like.

I think the prayers of folks around me helped tremendously. You all know who you are, and thanks again.

On the plus side, this visit did provide the necessary impetus for me to clean the bunker in a way it has not been cleaned in quite a while. The place has been transformed; while it is still not going to appear on the cover of Architectural Digest I am actually beginning to feel as if I could, y'know, actually let people see the inside of the house.

I've been thinking I ought to--speaking of the prayers of friends--invite the pastor and his wife over for dinner sometime. It'd be a nice thing to do, and Lord knows I need to make more friends. We're already on pretty good terms and they're good people, so I think it'd be a nice occasion.

    So the pool stopped leaking on its own--at least, the leak slowed significantly, and it wasn't much to begin with. I guess it's in a place where,…
