" The length of our days is seventy --"

Psalm 90:10,12, 17 ..."The length of our days is seventy years--or eighty, if we have the strength; ...teach us to number our days aright, that we may gain a heart of wisdom."...."May the favor of the Lord our God rest upon us..."

Two of us "girls" took another out for her 90th birthday lunch. What a dynamic person she is! God has certainly blessed her with a long life and energy. She goes everywhere, makes hundreds of small loaves of bread for friends, neighbors, church members, for anyone she knows and she baked several hundred last year. She and her husband have been married 70+ years...they are part of the camping buddies we went everywhere with all the years our children were small and growing up. "Happy Birthday, our friend!"

Two years ago John and I decided to go and get gun certified and a carrying permit. I don't have a gun, but it seemed like a good idea since this privilege could be lost someday. I have my card, like a driver's license card and show it as an ID for medical offices and hospital check in. They are always impressed with this ID card! Needless to say, it makes me look tough.

God has blessed my friends and He is blessing John and me as we enjoy our health (such as it is). I really feel pretty good. My fingernails are about half gone and except for the rash on my face, I have few complaints. I get nervous when I think about the PET in 12 days. I have to rest in God's FAVOR which He certainly is blessing us with...

  1. I will pray,Bev, for your PET scan. It is still a wonder that the Lord knows the number of our hairs on our head as well as knowing the number of our days on this side of eternity. I am comforted in those words.
    Enjoy a peaceful day in His Presence today. love you kathryn
