2018 April 26 Friday in Liberty Hill Texas

49° with clear skies (which doesn’t make for Good sunrise photos). Mean while in Grimes Iowa it is 43°. Nice start to the morning.

Our last Over the Hill Gang until next fall. There were 51 in attendance. We had some very good lasagna.

We stayed after lunch and played two games of canasta.

Around three we arrived at home. Ella did some more sorting and packing while I worked outside. I removed the extra jacks that I use to help stableize the trailer. I also packed away some outdoor furniture.

Grandson Beket had a baseball game at six thirty. Here are a couple of videos of him at bat and stealing bases.

Heather and Austin came to the game and the see us.

I missed a really good sunset because I had it on video instead of camera. By the time I realized what I’d done, the sun was a little too low.

Heather and Austin and Ella and I went to a Mexican restaurant after the game which gave us a little time to talk. Before leaving there, Heather told us that they were going to get married.

I WILL FLY

Isaiah 40:28-31
Don’t you know? Haven’t you heard? The eternal God, the LORD, the Creator of the ends of the earth, doesn’t grow tired or become weary. His understanding is beyond reach. He gives strength to those who grow tired and increases the strength of those who are weak. Even young people grow tired and become weary, and young men will stumble and fall. Yet, the strength of those who wait with hope in the LORD will be renewed. They will soar on wings like eagles. They will run and won’t become weary. They will walk and won’t grow tired.”

My legs and feet hurt. It is early in the morning and I’m still lying on my bed. My feet haven’t even touched the floor yet.

There is a saying, “Getting old isn’t for sissies.”* At seventy one I can say I agree with that. And yet, for all that’s wrong with me I’m in pretty good shape.

I have marginal hearing, yet my Lord speaks to me. Can’t see to read without my glasses, yet the word of God is within me. Have trouble remembering, yet I know whom I have believed in. I have trouble standing, yet I’ll stands on the word of God. I am weak, yet in my weakness I am able to do all things in Christ who strengthens me.**. My body is slowly failing but my spirit is soaring.

Come fly with me.

*Bette Davis

**Philippians 4:13
