Getting Settled

Progress in getting all our belongings where they can 'have a home' has been slow at times but still 'happening'. My brother and his wife were in Michigan for several weeks. We were trying to get our things 'arranged' but still haven't succeeded in completing that job even yet.

My brother sings in a barber shop style quartet. Every year they take an opportunity this time of year to sing 'love songs'. They came from Michigan on Sunday and Monday - Valentine's Day - he sang, in a quartet, 'love songs' (upon request) to 'special people'. Sounds like a good job.

Besides getting settled we have been having time to ponder some other aspects of life. This past summer I had the opportunity to visit an old friend who had been through some tough times and shared some 'regrets'. I do believe the Lord guided in the visit for it gave me the opportunity to pray with and for my friend - then and continuing.

Our community of faith has been encouraging everyone to pray [with a 'logo' 7-7-7. Pray at seven a.m., seven p.m., seven days a week. ] Some times I am not always able to pray at 7 my time, but it is 7 o'clock somewhere. The 'time' is not so vitally important as is the connecting with the source of power and peace - our loving heavenly Father. With so many challenges in our world today, it brings peace to my heart that in this 'war' zone, our commander who is also our Father in heaven, has 'all power' in heaven and in earth. That can truly give a peace that the world can't take away. And, by staying in 'tune' with our loving Father we can have the peace that this earth knows nothing about.

My time is running out for right now, but until we meet again, May God's peace be with you.

Bringer of Peace
