Just got home from our anniversary dinner celebrating our 46 years of marriage. God has been so good to us as we look back over those years. He's given us loving family and faithful friends, years of work, and recently years of retirement. Most of all, He gave us His Son to set us free. We said goodbye to our TX kids after a wonderful visit. Kristy drove kids to Atlanta and down to FL, so the cousins could spend time together. Got to see lots of WPHS friends at reunion picnic. Our days have been full of packing boxes for our move to Lutheran Haven unit on the 19th. It will be a new chapter that we are looking forward to. Kristin and Kevin are back in college. Kara drove back to WY for her first teaching job, and the rest of the grandkids are in or waiting for school to begin again. Began an awesome study on "The Holiness of God." Sunday's worship topic was "the life God builds us into being people of purpose"...that whatever we do-we do to the glory of God. We continue to seek where God is leading us. I am down to 3 more chemo treatments after completing 13. It's been a long journey...but He has held my hand through it all with very few side effects. I praise and thank Him for His protection and making me cancer free at this time. Prayer requests are for a second successful shoulder surgery for sister in law, Gretchen; healing from a stroke for Stacy, successful surgery for Sheri on the 17th and comfort for Gary's Aunt Helen who just lost her 63 yr old son, Dennis, to diabetes complications. We thank you for being a special part of our lives and pray that all is well with each of you.
Love, Carol Lynn and Gary
