  1. Blessings on your trip. That is a wonderful list of God's gifts.

  2. it's always kind of the special thing to have a little bit of past – a good piece of past – brought into the present. This was kind of a nice slice of pie, frozen – and then brought out and enjoyed later. God bless you guys and all you have done. And God bless and keep all of yours.

    Oh, and since it's a thank you list – I guess I should pick a favorite. And that one would be your church family gathering around you, saying goodbye, and praying for you – it's very New Testament-ish – I heart that!


Thanks for joining the conversation!
