Just one today.....
I got a letter from my brother, Richard, today. He's the only brother that I haven't actually seen since returning here after my 32 year absence. We've been writing to each other, as he doesn't drive, and hardly uses their cell-phone. Today when I opened his letter, I found that he had enclosed a photo of himself that had been taken at Thanksgiving. I was so excited to see what he looks like after all these years. I've GOT to make plans to visit him soon........he's only about an hour and a half away, I think. He helps his wife make quilts every summer, when she's not teaching school !
I also spoke to the lady for whom I'm making the latest baby quilt. She was really excited to hear that it's nearly finished. She was wishing the baby to hurry, and I told her, "NO, no ! The baby can take his time......the quilt WILL WAIT !"
I will be glad and rejoice in thy mercy; for thou hast considered my trouble; thou hast known my soul in adversities;
"NOW THANKS BE UNTO GOD, WHICH ALWAYS CAUSETH US TO TRIUMPH IN CHRIST !"
The LORD is my light and my salvation; Whom shall I fear?The LORD is the strength of my life; of whom shall I be afraid?
When the wicked came against me to eat up my flesh, my enemies and foes, they stumbled and fell. Though an army encamp against me, my heart shall not fear....Psalm 27 1-3
Psalm 31: 7, 8
And hast not shut me up into the hand of the enemy; thou hast set my feet in a large room.
