It is good to see no snow out there this Monday morning. The weatherman tells us we need the moisture and I say, we need the sunshine and to get rid of this cool weather. It did get cold and streets weren’t safe for driving, but Marise got up early and went into work for Auxiliary at St. Johns Hospital. She came home later in the day and all was well. As for me, I went to the mailbox and that was it until Sunday morning church.
We had all attend services. Pastor Don’s message was from Hebrews 12:1-2, “Fit For Life.”
Wednesday, Marise and Virginia enjoyed a dinner out with the ladies from our Sunday school class. We had a good visit and got to build a relationship.
Saturday afternoon Marise and Pat Sims went to The Stained Glass Theatre in Ozark. They loved the showing so much. Marise thinks it is one of the best she has ever seen.
Pvt. Clifton Andrews’ trip to Fort Benning, Georgia was cancelled. The trainer from there went to Fort Louis. From Clifton’s report to his dad and mother, they are getting so much rain there the flight training cannot take place.
I had a phone call from Geneva in Wasco, Oregon on Friday. Our nieces of Sandy, Oregon, Carol and Dell, Cathy and Jan, had come in Saturday and all enjoyed a dinner and visit. Aunt Nadine was also there along with Uncle Arley.
Geneva reports that Mount Hood got enough warm weather to melt snow off the Mount, to flood the Sandy River that has carried every thing in its path to the Columbia River. Also from Portland to the coast of Tillamook, is hard hit from loss of homes. This is near Rockaway Beach. Wasco, is east of Mount Hood. When we lived out there I remember we had this melt down and it took homes and everything in its path. I believe that was in the middle 1980’s. I do know it can rain in Oregon and Washington.
Meditate on God’s word and ask God for help.
