The week end with school reunion and church homecoming was wonderful. Many memories, music, and merciful teasing! Everybody had stories to tell. Then good food was available also. It is not often that I go someplace where food has to take second place! I didn’t even gain a pound!
Sammy and I were close to the oldest there – but not the oldest. Our little Bible college of the 1940s and 50’s turned out a lot of talented, healthy, and happy people. I am so thankful to the Lord for those choices I made in those days. I am heart broken that so many reject walking in the path that God wants for them. Even saying that I acknowledge some very bad times that repentedly had to be brought to the cross. But at least we knew that could be done! Bring your sins to Jesus; he will forgive and renew again.
At this time, this small beginnings has developed into Southwestern Christian University in Bethany, OK. It is well worth giving attention to for your young offspring! They have a great athletic department also. Check them out if you are looking for small, personal, loving, and safe! They did have basketball games Saturday afternoon which I would love to have gone to, but didn’t because it was very crowded. Not that I’m old, but I can’t climb bleachers anymore. 😀
My brother’s memorial service is not yet planned, but it will probably be Saturday. We do have reservations for a couple nights in Boise City. It was hard to find a place to stay out in that area during hunting season. It will be nice to see family but it will make me cope with Clyde being gone. I don’t see him often so I haven’t really internalized the fact that he is gone. Well, we will have one of those homecomings with him someday.
I have a series on blog for the rest of the week giving honor to veterans. I am doing it my telling one vets story. I hope you will read Steve’s Story, five parts starting in the morning I hope. It is the first time I have tried scheduling any more than one day ahead, so I hope I have them lined up right.
Thanks, dear people, for caring for me. My attachments with you all run deep.
