I hope you’re all doing well this week and enjoying this beautiful weather. Someone asked me the other day if I’d rather it be like it is now, hot and sunny, or cold and icy…boo-hiss for the latter; give me sunny and warm every day!
I spent 20 years in Wyoming and I was glad when the Lord said to me “come home to your roots.” I wouldn’t be able to stand it anymore, for absolute sure! Now, when I was 25 and moved out there following my darling husband, it was not a big deal. But now, all I can say is whoooooosh, thank you Lord for bringing me home when You did!
I loved it while I was there, but I’ve never looked back. I made some wonderful friends, came to know the Lord Jesus as my Savior, our precious daughter was born in Wyoming, but I’m so glad to be home and there’s no place like home…there’s no place like home!
For those of you who knew and prayed for my sweet husband in the hospital last week, thank you! We left for vacation Monday morning, got there, unpacked and spent one night and then Tuesday, I had to take him to the emergency room, the nearest located in Savannah (fine little hospital, by the way…). From there, we had a 21/2 hour trip by ambulance while he was transferred to Memphis.
Regarding the ambulance ride: "oof-ta" that’s German for “oh my goodness what a ride”
My husband said if he hadn’t have already had a heart attack, he should’ve had one during the ride! No, he did not have a heart attack, praise the Lord, but we’ll just say he was glad to get to Baptist East. Anyway, we spent the whole rest of the week there and we got to come home Friday night with two more pills added to his list: a beta-blocker and a new drug called Ranexa, which both treat micro-vascular disease. Thank you, Lord!
And thank you to Angie (our daughter and assistant director) for taking over for me while we were gone.
It was a rough week, with lots of things going on; the campus got hit again for the second week in a row with straight-line winds and caused some major damage to the trees and all of the roofs here on campus…but God is so good! All the time, God is good!
We just have the one happy birthday this week and it is for staff member, Tina Solley, my right-hand woman. Happy birthday Tina, we hope you have a great one!
Also, I would like to offer our condolences to Mrs. Debbie Bradford Moon, who was raised here at Dunlap when it was a children’s home. Debbie lost her sweet husband, Randy Moon, this past week, so the Dunlap kids’ reunion was cancelled until a later date. The new reunion date will be announced at a later time. You are in our prayers, Debbie!
Until next week. I pray for you all, for we never know when the Lord is going to call our name. And all I can say is I hope you know Jesus as your Lord and Savior and have trusted in Him and Him alone for your salvation. Get things right with your loved ones, don’t keep letting things fester. Tell them and others you love them!
