Funerals are seldom planned far in advance, and rarely anticipated with eagerness. But for a select group of people, an approaching funeral might engender some true rejoicing.
From my heart to yours
The deer in our woods have come through this easy winter in great numbers. The bucks now have little fuzzy antler stubs growing. I watched a fawn and a snowshoe hare in my backyard. The hare, crouched at the fawn’s feet, stayed stock still, being invisible, until the fawn reached her neck down and nudged it, then the hare sprang off into the woods. Then it started raining again.
Read my new blog, Katalambano!. (Katalambano is a Greek word meaning “to lay hold of so as to make one’s own, to take into one’s self, to lay hold of with the mind, to understand, perceive, learn, comprehend.”) Not too much on there yet, but I’m working on it.
Serving our sweet Savior,
