Newest member of my family: I have a new cousin. Her name is Elsie and she is a beauty. Actually, she is my third cousin. New life is a wonderful thing. I wish they didn’t live so far away so I could actually hold her. Her Grandmother and I are the best of friends. If I had a sister I couldn’t love her more. Wish she lived closer so I could hug her.
This is a picture of a small gift I made for her. She looks so cute wearing it.
Safety of students, faculty and staff at Florida State University. What happened in Tallahassee last night could have been so much worse. I woke up at 4:30 this morning and turned on the local news as I do every morning. I immediately was concerned for all the students there, but especially for the daughter of one of my dearest friends who is a senior at FSU. I didn’t want to call her that early, but was so relieved when I texted her at 8:00 and she texted back that her daughter was safe. There are still a lot of unanswered questions about the motive or cause of this senseless violent act, but I am just so thankful that it wasn’t any worse. Please remember the FSU family in your prayers, especially the one student that is still in critical condition.
Chappells Heating and Air: They replaced the thermostat on my central heat and air yesterday and now the unit will turn off when it reaches the temperature set. Yay! My electric bill should reflect that next month.
Father, God, tonight I lift up to you all the families affected by the shooting at FSU. Please place your healing hand on the student that is still in critical condition. Be with all the students as they work through this. Bless sweet Elsie and her entire family. Thank you for service companies that I can always count on to treat me fairly, like Chappells.
As always, I love you and praise your name, and thank you for all the blessings in my life.
