Janet: Welcome Home! We were transferred to Dallas and moved the family and one dog to a suburb - leaving a home on a little Minnesota lake. The Texas drivers were all fast and furious. Junk all over the freeways, etc. Quite a change to a no holds barred life. I know exactly how you felt on those freeways.
Here, I am re-reading a book on daily devotions - "Jesus Always" by Sarah Young.
Hello! We have been away, just got home this evening around four. Had a really nice trip by car all the way to Pensacola. Florida. We followed my niece and husband, as they go there several times a year. Darrel got really tired driving, and I don't trust my eyesight, and am not good at driving in traffic. Niece had her niece along (My great Niece, 19 years old) and she offered to drive for us. What a blessing Carly proved to be! She even drove the part through the terrible Dallas traffic! She did a great job, and wound up staying with us when JoAnne and Dan went home. Carly drove the whole way back, and she and I spotted interesting things we wanted to stop and see or do, and did them! Darrel would have gotten on the interstate and zoomed straight home! Now he understands what I have been trying all these years to get him to do!
Judy, the name of the song He walks with me...is In The Garden. My favorite, besides He's Alive! (thanks for that!) is He Arose. It never seems like Easter to me if we don't sing that in church. We were on the road on Easter, but we sang it anyway, God heard us!
We need to make us a hamburger or something for supper. Good to read all your posts!
Jackie - we have the news of Prince Philip on right now. Condolences to all the nations.
Six of us girls gathered for a lunch this week. It is really nice to say grace before lunch, We say a short grace when dining out too. All but one lives a few houses away so it is a short walk to the group. I hope all of you have the great friends nearby. It is such a comfort.

Oh just heard our lunchtime news ( 12.45 pm ) telling of the death of our Prince Philip - Duke of Edinburgh, just shy of reaching his 100th Birthday cum June... our Queens loyal husband, 73 years married...I am so sad and shocked to hear this very sad news, my heart goes out to our Queen...Sad day indeed...
Reluctantly given thanks for finally finishing phone calls and mailing information to an insurance issue. It is just exhausting to listen to a machine when you really need an actual human voice. Thankful this chore is over.
Friends celebrated an 87th. birthday of a neighbor today - she is so sweet. I brought the ice cream. [/size ]
Many Thanks Judy! Don walked in and knew the voice at once.
We had all but two family members gather at our daughter's house for Easter. All church is closed - at least all the ones we all are members. One son and one grandson was missing. It was a wonderful visit with lots of smiles and hugs - everyone is safe from this virus - we sure loved to talk and tell stories out on the patio.
I need to get my 2nd. Shingles shot - who knew they require a 2nd. shot? They are so busy -overworked with the virus shot that no one calls back .
Jane: Love to see your post & photo. Welcome back!
Here, we had 7 deer in the ravine yesterday. One was very young but I can't judge their ages. So concerned with some terrible young people racing their cars past here - the deer always cross the road as a group and they head to the golf course a block away (a different housing area). There is a young man terrorizing us with his fast driving. One neighbor was almost hit but she is afraid of repercussions from him if she had to take him to court. Thank heaven the deer were out of the way when the speedster drove through.
I miss going to church - miss communion and the music. It isn't the same over the internet and without the people.
We had good news from one grandson - he finished his pilot training in Minnesota. All smiles.
Tomorrow, we will have Easter gathering at our daughter's house - one son is out of state and two grandsons will not be here. It is really warm here now so we can sit outdoors.
Judy: I can hum a song but do not know the name - "he walks with me and talks with me".

Jane... ...I like your logic, your way at looking at it, 11 days ago was also my 70th year around our sun, on our planet earth...Oh and yes, i so agree, dont our medics now look so young, or is it because we are getting so old....well as they keep telling us....age is just a number but, believe you me, my illness, my disease has certainly aged me....I was in hospital a couple of weeks ago and could not believe how young the two ambulance drivers looked, as they all gathered mingling and chatting along the corridor along with me, younger than our grandchildren, being all early - mid 20's...I felt i was waiting for the doors to open outside a nightclub...
