As a young man in my church asked me one day, 'are you getting shorter?' In my head I am still young, happy and fun- loving. My body laughs and says 'how far can you run or even walk, without having to sit down?' My Mother died when she was 60 and she was still on the go! I am 72 and 'my go has gotten up and gone' without me.
My Pastor had a message about, no matter how young or old you are, God still has work for you to do. I was praying last night and asked Him what is left for me to do. I have been praying that for several weeks now and so far, I don't have the answer. I am saved, faithful to church, I tithe, I work at being helpful and nice, but there has to be more that an older adult can do for the Lord. My Pastor's wife told me once that she sees my smile from the choir. That doesn't sound like much, but it made me happy, as Jim and I sit at the back of the church and it has a long aisle! Maybe I am an encouragement to someone.
I haven't posted any postcards lately, but am still receiving at least one or more every week. It is amazing to me that with all the trouble in the world, and in certain countries in particular, I can still receive a postcard.
These are from Erie Canal, Germany, Russia and Ukraine, in order. In my mind, I don't think of Russia or the Ukraine as looking this way. Interesting to me.
We finally talked to the adjuster for our homeowners insurance, and we are getting three brand new TV's, to replace the ones that were totalled, week before last, due to an electrical surger.
