Clyde & I are in Washington this week visiting family & friends under a gorgeous, uncharacteristic clear blue sky, and sunshine that makes Seattlites stop and squint and say, “Have you noticed that strange glow in the sky?” Then on the way back to Long Beach we plan to stop by the Bay Area for a trip down Memory Lane, which, by the way, gets shorter every year. We shall indulge in some cheese puffs at Fat Apples, stroll around Lake Merritt, elbow a few Chinese grandmas in Oakland’s Chinatown while trying to score some BBQ pork. Oh, and of course, see dear longtime friends. I’ll also be gone the Memorial Day weekend hanging out with family in Oceanside.
Re: my health, I’ve certainly seen better days, and often need a cane to get around.But I’m still in the land of the living, by God’s grace and His grace alone. I can’t tell you how much your intercessory prayers mean to me. I so appreciate all who are fighting the good fight with me. My hope and faith continue to be in Jesus, who came that we may have life, and have it to the full.
As I mentioned in my last blog Clyde & and I traveled to Bethel Church in Redding, CA to receive prayer through their Healing Rooms. (You can Google Bethel for a full description of their ministry.) I’m still processing all that happened – and there was plenty! – and promise to write more in a future blog how God met me there.
Right now, gotta run. I’m off to see “The Avengers” at a movie theater that serves dinner with the movie while you sit in a cushy sofa. The only thing missing is they should let you wear your jammies!
Love you all-
Till the sun no longer shines,
Till the rivers all run dry,
Till the poets run out of rhymes,
Till the end of time,
(can you tell what I’ve been listening to on Pandora?)
