The spring has been busy, but that is no excuse for not putting my thoughts down. Got the garden in okay. Most everything is looking okay. Noticed this evening that there were some blooms on the tomatoes. Can't wait to have fresh veggies. We have also been trying to paint the house. Weather has not cooperated for that.
Went to my class reunion last weekend( 45 years!). Good turn-out. Some have changed, some have not. But then maybe they haven't changed and I have! It was fun anyway.
Heard on the news tonight that some people in California(San Diego, I think) were told by city authorities that they could hold Bible meetings in their home because ther were too many there, around fifteen. They were told that they would have to have permit for that many. Their lawyer was going to argue the point that there were that many at a Tupper-ware party! Just what is this country coming to! It is our right to be able to worship as we wish. We need to pray for these people, and that they have the strength to continue their fight. Our religious freedom will be tested more and more as we struggle in these times. He says "that we will be persecuted in His name. Many will betray one another. Lawlessness will abound and the love of many will grow cold, but he who endures to the end shall be saved." (Matt 24). Stand up, stand up for Jesus as the old hymn goes. The road will be tough, but that reward at the end is so worth all the bumps that we may encounter. I hope that any who might be reading this will pray for strength as they read as I am praying for strength as I write. I am afraid that we will need it.
