Morning Wake Up Call
Woke up 6:50 and I did not have to take in too much convincing.
Had gone to bed early and I was well rested.
It is Sunday morning and I might as well go in and hear from the man of God.
Brought out the clippers and got a clean shave; there is no reason keeping any of this bad hair.
Who they are
Made it to worship late us usual. And, so took that empty seat at the last row.
Service was good, the pastor brought up two congregants whom faith has brought together.
His faith has held for sixteen years. Worn and Tested.
Hers has grown in a much more unruffled soil; the company of friends.
In time her faith was tested as well.
When he is the one doing the testing; everything turns out well.
Her friends were not just friends in what they believe. But, also in whom they are.
Saw Brother Ray.
Had asked for his prayers a week earlier.
Walking the hallways and sometimes there is not better place, but out there in the open.
Someone else might be encouraged by the humility of brothers saying lay your hands on me.
And, pray me in to the place of peace that you are standing in.
Thankfully things are now more settled.
One never knows what lays ahead and so when prompted by the Spirit, be sure to ask for that prayer and fellowship.
Saw Brother Gary after Church.
Asked him to please keep us abreast of plans for laying Dad down.
And, of prayers for him; and how I will not say more than that.
He agreed that there is not much to say has we have been through it.
He said of the plans that it was actually happening this afternoon. But, it is out of town.
In Jamaica Queens, New York.
I am just so thankful that he could have muttered Yes and held the plans to himself, but he chose not to.
And, that rendered us the opportunity to enjoin with him in Spirit.
Aunt Stacy & Uncle Alan
Aunt Stacy called on Friday Night.
And, so made time to go see Aunt T. on Saturday afternoon. And, also on Sunday.
And, yes the grass needed to be trimmed in love.
And, so returned home and came back with the mower.
After Church on Sunday, came back and took care of the backyard, as well.
Just like my Hair mowed the grass down rudely and harshly.
As I returned to the front to get some more gas, saw Uncle Alan, Aunt Stacy’s husband, helping trim the edges.
He was picking up behind me.
All the stuff I rushed through while cutting the front yard, he was lovingly and affectionately placing a well.
Took Mama out for Sunday dinner.
Dinner was at Forbes Mills in Los Gatos.
Here is a link.
Made sure that we walked the outdoors and got Mama’s hair wet.
Worked up an appetite and took in the refreshment of the wild, tempered outdoors.
Talking about Los Gatos.
RC from Cornell interviewed there a few years ago.
She gunned for the City Planner’s position.
And, it came down to her and another person.
Wouldn’t that be something if RC is the one running that city; responsible for keeping old money respectable and treasured.
