Dean keeps saying he is fine.  I pray it is so.  He has 14 to go in April. 

Our church as its first Sunday in the new building.  I don't know if Dean plans to go.  He probably will if he isn't too tired.  Then the next Sunday is Easter and we plan to be at Betty's.  Maybe, it is iffy.   She will have a houseful.

It's  cold and dreary today.  Sunday  is promised to be warm and beautiful.  Let's hope so.

Not really much news.  We are just resting .

Take care,

Day 16 for Dean, 17 to go!

Sunny but only 59 temp and a cold wind.  So it 's not a good day to sit on the porch in my swing.

Dean's day at the cancer clinic was as it always is, not long but it made him tired.
Thank you Lord for his recliner.

In the mail today was a request for donation to the USO.
I know the USO is good. I was a part of it in WW  2 before I married Dean, before I even knew him.
I remember being there nearly every day.  I would leave after work in Little Rock and walk most of the time from Little Rock over the Arkansas River bridge to downtown North Little Rock to the USO building and stay for a couple of hours and then take the long bus ride home.
I remember good times like games , table pingpong and the like and just talking with the soldiers.  The talents  they brought like piano playing.  It was Salvation Army sponsored.  Many good memories.

And wouldn't you guess?  It was there I met Dean.  And before long  he was riding the bus with me and meeting my family.  My times at the USO were over.  It was three months and we were married, 1945.

By the way, I am reading Romans slowly in the Bible.  My memory gets shorter all the time and even much of the Bible is slipping away so I have to remind myself to get busy with reading again and again.

I hope others will remember this, you can forget so read things you want to remember again and again.  Don't let yourself forget.

Take care,
Betty G

Dean is still having problems with bladder infection, now the doctor says it is because his sugar is too high.
So, it means another round of antibiotics. He says he feels fine anyway.

We are expecting colder temps all this week. Hope other people are having good weather.

Know This Hymn? It's been a favorite of mine for all my years.

"Trust and Obey"
When we walk with the Lord, In the Light of His Word, What a glory He sheds on our way,
While we do His good will, He abides with us still, And with all who will trust and obey.
Trust and Obey, for there's no other way, To be happy in in Jesus, but to trust and obey.

Take care,
Betty G

Beautiful day, too nice for March. Peg and Denny are here raking some of the flower beds. We had them covered with leaves all winter. So many flowers are up but it is too early.

Dean got outside for a while. Yesterday he slept the entire day. Today he is still just tired.
Tomorrow he starts another week of treatments at the cancer clinic, then 19 more in April.

Our church's last day at the old location was today. Then the 28th is moving day into the new location and April 1 is the first day in the new church. We aren't sure if we will get there or not.

I am very thankful that so many are praying for Dean's healing.. Our Heavenly Father is taking care of him and I thank Him also.

Take care,
Betty G

Back Again

I haven't been writing for my blog but I don't believe anyone was reading it so why write.

So I thought I'd just write for myself since I have the blog and it should be read by me.

So for myself I want to remind myself I have a Savious, Jesus Christ, alive in Heaven who looks after me and all my family. He has always been faithful to me and I know He cares and listens to my problems. I do believe He loves to hear my thank yous to Him for things I see happening to my loved ones as as myself.

So I will try to write often for myself and I want to talk to Jesus and remember. He says all He wants from me is my trust and belief in Him and He will always be my Saviour.

Take care,
Betty G
