As I write this Sunday evening....
The weather.... is rainy tonight..
Right now I am... enjoying having my daughter Emily home from her spring break service trip.
|Reverend Billy Graham|
“In my Depression-era growing-up years, I suppose we Grahams on our North Carolina dairy farm bore some resemblance to the fictional Walton family on television. It’s easy to feel nostalgic about simpler times, but they obviously were not easier times. Nor were they necessarily happier times.
On my reading pile...What we did have back then was family solidarity. We really cared about each other, and we liked to do things together. Jesus’ word picture of a hen gathering her brood under her wing fits my mother. She saw to it that we gathered frequently and regularly–and not just around the dinner table or in front of the radio for favorite broadcasts. She gathered us around herself and my father to listen to Bible stories, to join in family prayers, and to share a sense of the presence of God.” Billy Graham

Rejoice in the Lord always. Again I will say, rejoice!"Father God, I pray that each reader will be very aware of your presence today. Bless them with your love and bring them to faith and trust in you, your son Jesus the Christ, and the Holy Spirit. I ask in Jesus' Name. Amen.

Update on Ellen Kuentzel 3/27:
She is still struggling with use of her left side. She cannot stand on her own. She fatigues extremely easy, at end of the day she cannot even feed herself and sometimes at lunch she gets tired also. She has been running a 103 degree fever and it took the hospital 3 days to find out it was a bladder infection. She has pressure sores on her heels (bed sores). We were going to cut her hair but she did not want bangs so we are going to have to just comb it out, it is all tangled and matted.
Brain injuries are extremely complex and they saved her life by doing the surgery as an emergency procedure.
