A Friday of God's Mercy

I felt like going back to last summer's pictures.

I got two cards in the mail;

one from my Aunt, encouraging me with her words and prayers

... including her very simple words:

We never know what changes will happen to us.. like having a fire...

But God is good and we have been saved from injuries.

I am so loved;

my Aunt praises God's goodness despite her house fire;

I remember my Great Aunt once talking about God's goodness

as well,

when speaking of the death of her sister's husband,

she herself having lost her husband years before.


A friend sent me a card with a bit of money it it

with the words

Merry Christmas.


The hair dresser gave me a super good haircut

and a significant discount,

reassuring me that my haircut would be professional...

I am slowly sleeping better,

a bit each night.

My forehead still has red burn like marks.

I have enough vanity in me to mind

and am going to see about some sort of

make up / foundation.

(Suggestions welcome! I am all about networking : ) ).

But this is only a smallish concern

and I am grateful to God

that I am healing so well.

I leave you with a quote that my Aunt wrote me
today in her card,
from the Protestant small-papered devotional
"Our Daily Bread"
Command to Love:
Love is an attitude
love is a prayer,
for someone in sorrow, a heart in despair
Love is good will for the gain of another
Love suffers long with the fault of a brother.
I can hear her voice reading this
rhymed truth.
God is bringing me this love
and I am so grateful.

I love the house at the top. It's just like the one in It's A Wonderful Life.
