   Boy, the days, weeks and months which turn into years do go by fast!!! August 26th we celebrated our oldest Aussie grandson's sixth birthday. We remember the morning he was born so how can this be? And if that isn't enough our oldest grandson, Taylor will be soon celebrating his 24th birthday! Talk about feeling old!
   Spring has sprung here in Australia and new life is seen all around us. The trees are budding, the flowers blooming, hay fever and allergies are affecting many people including my dear wife. She has been suffering for a couple of weeks now and hopefully its end will be soon. It did rain the other day which seemed to help.
   The Lord is good in that He continues to provide for our needs and many of our wants. Our job is not yet finished for 2Peter 3:9 tells us "The Lord is not slack concerning his promise, as some men count slackness; but is longsuffering to us-ward, not willing that any should perish, but that all should come to repentance."
   One of our Face book friends posted this photo of a woodpecker on a tree. Oh, how this brought back memories of when I was a young boy living just outside Ottumwa, Iowa! Early every morning for several weeks this woodpecker would peck on the power pole just outside my bedroom window. Annoying, yes but what a marvel of the Creator's ingenuity. Colossians 1:16 "For by him were all things created, that are in heaven, and that are in earth, visible and invisible, whether they be thrones, or dominions, or principalities, or powers: all things were created by him, and for him."
   This coming Monday, 10th September we will be in Sydney at the Royal Prince Alfred Hospital. David will be taking some neurological tests to determine what is causing the buzzing in his left ear. He has tinnitus in the right ear but this is something different. It has been contained somewhat with Clairty2 which our Pastor has graciously sent him but it does still bother him at night. We will see what if anything is found out Monday.
   Thanks for taking time to read this update.
In His Care,
David and Pam
