God is so good to us

I had a great visit at the monastery.
*
I came back to learn that one of my
dear friends is in the hospital.
Please pray for her.
*
Learned also that one of my classmates from years back
passed away on Tuesday from cancer.
He leaves a godly wife and 4 children behind.
Lord have mercy.
*
It is so wonderful to have monasteries to go to pray
and to have them pray for such needs as these.

sometimes I forget that He is good. Thanks for the reminder. Prayers for those in need.

Thank you Margaret - yes, visits to monasteries are good for us.

Deb - your welcome; I often write to also remind myself...

thank you both for the prayers; when I told my friend's mother of the prayers of my family and friends she was so heartened that she nearly cried...
