Joy in the Journey - Sunday, May 4, 1997

Sunday, May 4, 1997

Dear Lord,

Another beautiful day! Wow! Ted + I were often gone at this time of year, so didn't enjoy so many lovely days here in our home in the spring.

Right now, Lord, I pray for [redacted] that he will want to fly here this summer with his Uncle [redacted], if this is Your Will, of course. Please let [redacted], [redacted] + [redacted] make the decision You want. Amen. (Continued)

Gould wants Serella to take a bus instead of the plane, for which she has a ticket. Dear Lord, please guide Serella and Gould in this situa-tion. I expect her to visit from tomorrow to Friday. May Your Will be done. May they have a peaceful decision.

Thank-You for family and friends, and with Your Love I don't feel so lonely. Yes, I came into this world alone and will leave alone, but meanwhile what gifts you have given me, loving people all the wry way! Praise be unto You. Amen.


It is interesting that she continues to pray for her grandson to come visit. We have yet to determine why this is so important to her, other than the obvious desire to visit. Also of note is a rare misspelling of the word "way." She later came back with a different color ink to correct it, apparently on the next day.

Also of interest was her comment about coming into this world alone and leaving alone. She passed away with her family surrounding her.
