From My Friend, Susan, of NC -06/07/15:
we are incomplete, God loves us completely. Though we are imperfect, He
loves us perfectly. Though we may feel lost and without compass, God's
love encompasses us completely. ... He loves every one of us, even those
who are flawed, rejected, awkward, sorrowful, or broken.”
Dieter F. Uchtdorf
Thanks so much, Susan!

From Jimmy Dick ('65) of FL - 06/08/19, 9:04 AM - "THE GRASS REALLY DOES GROW GREENER OVER THE SEPTIC TANK!":
|Anyone who has read that great story by Erma Bombeck will have to smile at this post, for one of the things you have to deal with living in the country is the septic system. Now, our system works well, is serviced when needed, but there is one big problem. When we get a lot of rain with our raised system, it becomes difficult to mow the grass on the top. I won't ride the mower on it when it is wet and a push mower, even with the self-propelled option, just really doesn't work very well for this close friend of Arthur Ritis who love to bother me from time to time. So, what's this old boy to do? Well, maybe the Good Lord has provided another avenue for accomplishment as an added blessing.|
You see, a big, beautiful doe has begun to visit the ground routinely, early and late in the day, and see just loves my grass up there. I guess I am now her feeding station, and since I personally couldn't shoot a deer myself, I just watch her graze from the inside. She looks at me, but with the tinted windows I'm not sure whether she can see me or not. But here are two pictures of her this morning at her breakfast time. Glory to God for all the beautiful animals He places in His creation for us to enjoy.
Thank you, Jimmy!

From My Cousin, Cheryl White Wilson (James Blair HS / John Marshall HS - '64) of VA -06/06/19, 10:03 AM:
