Howdy all! The week will begin in just a moment. But first, a word from our sponsor.
But God showed his great love for us by sending Christ to die for us while we were still sinners.
~ Romans 5:8
Our family had a loss this past week or so. My wife lost her step mom to leukemia. She was doing fine until she came down with shingles, and that triggered the leukemia to end her life. ‘Mom’ had a bunch of kids and grandkids, but Nancy treated us like her own. What a great woman. Tough, and kind. She worked as a lead maid in a number of upscale mansions in the Watch Hill area of southern Rhode Island, but she never let that get to her head. She worked hard to take care of her large family, and never let anyone go without. God has shown us all so many times how much he loves us. He sends us our parents, our friends, our children; all to make our lives complete and filled with happiness and love. And he gives us responsibilities along with these gifts. Our challenge in life is to make the best of our lives, and of those around us. Not a mandate or a dictatorship, but a challenge and a burden which come with happiness and sadness over time. And we make mistakes along this way, this path we take. God knows we will, so he places help along the path to offer direction and guidance. Nancy was such a person. She was always there for Terri and I when we needed her. Christ was sent to us by God to save us, which I believe unconditionally! He also sent people like Nancy, to give us a little nudge when needed. Thank you God for the gift of Nancy. And thank you Nancy for all you have done for Terri, me, and your wonderful husband, my father-in-law Ralph. May you rest in wonderful peace along Their side.
Take care, God bless,
AND STAND WITH ISRAEL!!!
