Pray More Worry Less – I’ve done well praying more and really not worrying. I have peace because I know God is doing some mighty things in our family right now. I can’t wait to share how God is going to show us His glory just as He said in John 11:4 to Lazarus’ sisters “for the glory of God, so that the son of God may be glorified by it.”

Be The Blessing – OK I am going out on a limb here because it is June 6th and my birthday is in two days. This year I am 66. It seems impossible. I wish I was 30 and knowing all I do now, but we don’t get do overs. Anyway two days from now if I can get it all organized I want to be a blessing and give 66 things. I was up until 1:00 this morning making a list of 66 things and I have not been able to come up with that many, but maybe my friends and family can help. (Did it and it was great.) (Here is my planned post.)- I haven’t been able to write about all the wonderful things that happened.) Would you join me on my blog post for my birthday and share how you have performed a random act of kindness. Here is my post on that.
Lunch With Friends – I had planned to have lunch with some friends I used to work with on June 10th, but I cut my fingers on June 9th so they were still deadened and I could not drive, but I did meet up with a church friend on Wednesday this week after Bible study and have lunch.
Unplanned Friend Happenings – We had a friend come from Louisiana to fish with my husband and son. We got to go to lunch with him and both our kids and their families. FUN!
