The Lord will fulfill His purpose for me; Your love, O Lord, endures forever ~ do not abandon the works of Your hands. Psalms 138:8

A dear, old friend....

We had a visitor to town the other day.....

Marion Shodean came to visit Mum from Eugene. Oregon.  She had wanted to come to the birthday celebration, but realized her passport had expired.  So this dear 91 year old got her paperwork in order and planned a trip with two of her girls. (Bob hadn't seen the girls for about 40 years)

As an aside - my ironing board that I have used since we married 38 years ago was a Shodean is an antique solid wooden one.  I've always loved that it had a has "Shodean" scrawled on the bottom.

Ray and Marion were Bob's first pastors.....Marion was his Sunday School teacher, and she lead him to the Lord.  Very special lady, indeed.
It was a joy to visit with this dear saint and her girls and also to see Mum and Marion reminisce together. 
Simple pleasures are sometimes the best.

God IS good.  ALL the time.
