Dear Friends in Christ,
My email is a bit early this week because I am leaving tomorrow to go back to my mom's house. I'll do some tidying up there and meet with an attorney to get the process started to sell the house.
I plan to be back next Tuesday or Wednesday. If you need to speak to me while I'm gone, please email me or call my cell #: 553-1289.
Thank you to Billy for delivering the sermon at both(!) services this coming Sunday. Have I ever told you what a great husband I have?
Thank you for all the condolences and well-wishes I have received after my mother's death and on this, my 60th birthday. When I was a child, I thought 60 was ancient. Now it seems like a great age, except maybe when I'm gardening. I thank God for bringing me to this place in my life and for promising to be by my side in all the years ahead...and for making that promise to us all.
Let us continue to keep Phyllis Poff and Chris Fones in our prayers as they recuperate from surgery.
So the ransomed of the Lord shall return, and come to Zion with singing; everlasting joy shall be upon their heads; they shall obtain joy and gladness, and sorrow and sighing shall flee away. - Isaiah 51:11
Hold fast to dreams,
For if dreams die
Life is a broken-winged bird,
That cannot fly. - Langston Hughes
