"His good purpose..."

Yesterday, our "great" was here and we raked leaves and she jumped in them...what fun! (I remembered how Daddy would rake big piles of leaves and we would swing really high in our rope swing and jump out into the leaves! )As usual she ate breakfast with us this morning...she always does then goes to church with her grandparents (our daughter and son in law) we were talking about family kin and it is difficult for a 6 year old to be able to know who is what kin in the family. She got most of it right, except my sister (her great aunt)...she did not know that is my sister. We found an old picture of us as children and "great" was amazed at us being little, etc.

I had to get a repairman come to work on the sewing machines yesterday. He lives in Westmoreland. I told about my aunt and uncle who (he was a stationmaster for the railroad in Westmoreland)used to lived next door and part of the time would live in Westmoreland. A few years ago the town moved the old train station and part of it ended up built onto this repairman's house. What a coincidence!!!Actually his parents lived there then he bought the house and has lived those 40 years. Where in the world would I meet someone who lived in that train station!!! Now, we have got to go there and see that house. It is sad when old buildings are torn down. There is a parking lot there now where the train station used to be.

Our preacher today talked about contentment, and how we can look for "God's good" in every situation. Philippians 2:13 says "for it is God who works in you to will and to act according to His good purpose."
