1 Timothy

Good morning, Dear Friends and Prayer Partners! This is the day that the Lord has made and we will rejoice and be glad in it! Even the weather report said the day will be beautiful, although the humidity is back. But that's okay because the wind is gentle and the sun is shining off and on through the white clouds!

Well, we had quite an adventure Saturday. Brian and I left here shortly after 10 Am to head for Kissimmee to meet up with my cousin from England. Adam had done long and tedious research into our family tree on my father's side, and since there were twelve children, a lot of relatives turned up, which I had no knowledge of. We are scattered all over; CA, Bali, England, and other states. We had planned to meet at a Bob Evans, but found out the it was closed permanently, so Brian was able to call the number we had for Adam and Michelle and left a message for him to meet at the parking lot and change plans. (SIri was a big help)

It all worked out, because there was another Bob Evans about four miles away, so we drove there and had a patient waitress who didn't mind that we talked and talked before ordering. Then we just sat and talked some more. The waitress who was an older Asian lady, joined in and wanted to know where we were from. Afterwards, we adjourned to the entrance and did some more talking on the bench. By that time, the restaurant was mostly empty, so Adam asked the lady at bakery if she could take our pictures, which she was glad to do. She used all our iphones, so we got some great pics!Adam and Michelle are taking off back to Peterborough, UK today, but they have had a marvelous time visiting NYC, and Wash.DC. The time was short, but I am so happy that I got to meet them in person, after almost a year of emailing back and forth with memories and photos from the past of family on the farm in Middlebury, IN.

On the way up, on I-4, we were zipping along with fast heavy, three lane traffic, when all at once a hub cap, or wheel cover came flying by, narrowly missing us. PTL! Then, coming back we were missed by a soft drink can somebody tossed out! Other than those two narrow escapes, our trip was uneventful. But traffic was heavy coming and going, so I was glad to get home!

God is good!

From the Promise Bible NLT:

1 Timothy 6:17-19
Tell those who are rich in this world, not to be
proud and not to trust in their money, which
will soon be gone. But their trust should be in
the Living God, who gives us all we need for
our enjoyment. Tell them to use their money to
do good. They should be rich in good works and
should give generously to those in need, always
being ready to share with others whatever God has
given them. By doing this, they will be storing up
their treasure as a good foundation for the future
so that they may take hold of real life.

I always give thanks for you, remembering you in my prayers with thanksgiving, joy and love!

Love and hugs,
