"Life is precious" is driven home to me daily....for so many reasons. We traveled to Rockledge for the funeral of our former Pastor Schlessmann who has been our friend for 37 years. He got to go "home" at the age of 85 after surgery complications. Saw many ole friends. Received a call from college graduate, Kara, who is excited about her summer job at Turpin Meadows Dude Ranch near Jackson Hole. College kids, Kevin and Kristin, are getting a break at home and working at summer jobs already. Awesome Bible Class last night on topic "How Big is Your God" from PDL series on Surrender Your Life for God's Pleasure. Discussion opens our eyes daily to His power, His love for us and His faithfulness to all His promises. Read Ps 145 and were reminded again what God is really like...it is endless. So as we try to follow God's lead...we wait for HIS timing, we expect a miracle and we trust God's purposes...all without knowing the where, when, how and whys. That is real Trust. Looking forward to a quick week in GA before chemo #4. My oncologist says I am cancer free and my chemo is for prevention. We praise God for His goodness. When we get back we will celebrate Tyler's 8th grade graduation, Terri's "Sweet 16", Jen's and Jeff's graduations, Father's Day, birthdays for Julie, Erik, Kristy and Ross...plus their 15th anniv. So happy to have nephew, Mark, and Lindsey living in Orlando. That way we get to see brother, Jim, and Gretchen. Our friends, Duane, Judy M., Larry, Marybeth and Barb P. need prayers as all are having medical issues. Celebrating Jubilee at Ascension tomorrow with lots of activities. We are so blessed and remain so grateful for your prayers and friendship through the years.
