On A Missionary Journey

This is my baby brother and right out of High School he went to war.
It has been 50 years ago. He still suffers from injuries, more now that
he is up in years.
 This is my grandson , he is now in Vietnam telling them
the good news about Christ.
It is very emotional  for me to know he is in a place that had
so many memories of fear and dread for my mother and father that my
 brother would not survive. God is good and he did. I am happy my
grandson is there to tell them about Christ's love for them
and not because of war but I want him back home soon.

God Says

"I will pour out my Spirit upon all flesh."
Acts 2:17
Dear Lord, sweeten my attitudes. May my life breathe
the fresh fragrance of your Spirit.
In Christ name I pray

Sharing Flowers From A Far Today

I gave a neighbor across the street a start and seed of
the Mildred's Blackberry lily, so now we get to enjoy
seeing hers bloom.
 She has lots of red lilies
 And these pure sunshine yellow flowers.
Hope All stay cool and happy this lovely June day.

Even In Our Sorrow

"The Lord is thy keeper: the Lord is thy shade upon thy right hand."
Psalm 121:5
We thank you, Father, for loving us so much that you bring answers in all areas of our lives.
(In Christ name I pray)

We are so sad to say we have lost our last son.

Wanted A New Plant

I was going to say needed a new plant but no just wanted.
 This is Plum Delight Loropetalum
Said Hummingbirds and butterflies like it.
We put two in side yard and did a little stone work to help stop water flow. Looks
like grass is not going to grow there any more.
Also got pink Pentas for front bed not having any luck with
Vinca this year to wet.

Do You Check For Cracks

I always do , I hate to get home with broken eggs, and I want
a full dozen. Today we paid $1.00 more  for eggs than last week.
They say it is because of Avian Flu outbreak in the chickens.
Don't know what we should give up, but if food keeps going up
something will have to give.
 I have been in a real funk  for a few weeks
Doctors appointments for me and the Bennie. He had to go in for more test and
could mean surgery. Had a death in the family, roof damage from storm with water in the hall.
Grass dead where we did all that work from water boys run off in side yard. I must stop here.
It will all work out and I will get out of my funk soon????

Pray and Receive

"All things, whatsoever ye shall ask in prayer,
believing, ye shall receive."
Matthew 21:22
Help me, Father, to believe that you will provide for me this day and in the future.
In Christ name I pray
