"Mostly what God does is love you..."

Ephesians 5:1-2 The Message..."Watch what God does and then you do it, like children who learn proper behavior from their parents. Mostly what God does is love you. Keep company with Him and learn a life of love. Observe how Christ loved us. His love was not cautious but extravagant..."

Our "great" spent part of today with us al she eats breakfast with us on Sunday mornings...then because she was here all day with our daughter (her grandmother) she was back here part of this afternoon. She has such uncoditional love that reminds me of how we must be childlike with God and return His love in abandonment.

We hope to see more "greats" this weekend in another city. What a blessing to be able to have a relationship with our great grand children! What a blessing to be "friends" with our children, and grandchildren (all of whom are grown and married).

I remembered being in Spain and being caught up in a train strike, and we either had to get out of there that night or maybe "who knows when"... so we waited in the train station and when a train came we got on it headed for the French border. When we arrived at the border, everyone had to get off and onto the French train because the track guage changed at the border. We were acting like most Americans and waiting out turn and someone told us to push on or we would not get on--do not wait your turn!...So we acted like Europeans and pushed on, suitcases in hand, and stood in aisles half the night...but we got out in time. A beautiful Argentine girl befriended us and made some other move over because we had Eurail passes and we got seats. One woman did not want us to sit but this girl spoke several languages and told this woman to move and she did! We had several "guardian angels" on that trip.

We could not do all of that now and we are so thankful we did when we could! Now, If I can get rid of this cancer and keep traveling, what a wonderful thing that would be! But I thank God for each day and each relationship, family and friends.
