I worked hard, with the aid of my exercise specialist, Amanda Bastien, to fit into the jacket. Did it, by the grace of God.  It's all by the grace of God.  I asked for God's succor and He gave it.

Love the brass bands .  Wish we had one locally.

We were re-enrolled as soldiers by the national commander, commissioner  William A Roberts, a spiritual man. I considered fainting with the emotion of it, but didn't.

Pete was physically weaker than we expected and there were many many servants to help, most notably Cptn Gary Gugala, our local officer, who was always right there.

There were people there I just wanted to pack up and bring home with me.  As it was enjoyed the laughter of the teenagers in the van on the way home.

At the grocery this evening the people seemed spiritually dead.  We will pray that we can assist in some way as God draws people unto Himself.

Harry S Truman said

We all can pray. We all should pray. We should ask the fulfillment of God's will. We should ask for courage, wisdom, for the quietness of soul which comes alone to them who place their lives in His hands.
 We were married in Harry's courtroom in Independence , MO.
 Quietness of soul

2 Peter 1:3-11


3 as His divine power has given to us all things that pertain to life and godliness, through the knowledge of Him who called us by glory and virtue, 4 by which have been given to us exceedingly great and precious promises, that through these you may be partakers of the divine nature, having escaped the corruption that is in the world through lust.

Fruitful Growth in the Faith

5 But also for this very reason, giving all diligence, add to your faith virtue, to virtue knowledge, 6 to knowledge self-control, to self-control perseverance, to perseverance godliness, 7 to godliness brotherly kindness, and to brotherly kindness love. 8 For if these things are yours and abound, you will be neither barren nor unfruitful in the knowledge of our Lord Jesus Christ. 9 For he who lacks these things is shortsighted, even to blindness, and has forgotten that he was cleansed from his old sins.
10 Therefore, brethren, be even more diligent to make your call and election sure, for if you do these things you will never stumble; 11 for so an entrance will be supplied to you abundantly into the everlasting kingdom of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ
