A dear friend of mine celebrated her 90th birthday last week.
She was honored on Thursday with a beautiful decorated party given by family members from Florida, Illinois and Huntersville. She does not look her age and we are wishing her many more happy years.
I celebrated my 84th Birthday on Monday. I want to thank everyone for the calls, visits, and messages received by the computer. I had one of the helper ask me “Do you really send/receive emails and Facebook items?” I asked her why she ask. She thought I was so old I wasn’t able to use a computer. I do not feel 84, so therefore I plan to continue using my computer as long as possible.
Seek and Call, read Psalm 139:1-10. The Lord says, “When you search for me, you will find me; if you seek me with all of your heart, I will let you find me.”
Prayer: Dear God, help us to seek you with our whole heart so that we may honor you all of our days. Amen.
