Refreshment in Refuge

No column this week...
Date Posted: May 4, 2014

Dear readers, But I do ask for your prayers. When a family as close as ours ages, there is a trend that starts to sap your strength. My aunts and uncles are going to see Jesus on a very regular basis. Earlier this month it was my Aunt Alease whom I adored. She was my dad's sister. Soon my Aunt Vonny, my mom's sister, will join her. We're traveling this week to Oklahoma so Mom and I can see Vonny most likely for the last time this side of Heaven. So I ask for prayers for traveling grace. And I know this is stupid, but my kitty cat needs medicine everyday so we'll have to take him to my sister's for the week and that will be so upsetting because her dog meets no strangers and Scooter is not partial to dogs. Sometimes things pile up so high you just want to cry. But then, I have to remember that God is in control, that we are only here for a short time, and He absolutely does take care of His own. Thank you! Giving Him all the glory! Engraved in His palm, Gina
