"And let us not be weary in well doing: for in due 
season we shall reap, if we faint not."
(Galatians 6:9)

Not that this has anything to do with well doing (I don't think), but after over three years of never ever getting any of my shots on the 365Project Popular Page--no matter how many "favorites" they received--three in a row just made it.

Surprise e-mail from someone who found my photo blog by chance, left a nice comment about how it had blessed her, and shared the link to it on her blog.

My out of town friend's visit was filled with glimpses of God's grace.

For starters, it was nice to have someone to do things with for a whole week.

Then the day we went to Harpers Ferry, it was cloudy and breezy, which made the heat and humidity bearable, plus we also got to do a lot of sitting on the tour, which enabled me to be able to keep up with my her without my back hurting much.

While we were on the shuttle from the parking lot to the park, I saw the heron my Harpers Ferry friend had been posting pictures of on Facebook, and when my daughter met us and was driving us back to the parking lot, the heron was still there, so she pulled over, and I was able to get some nice pictures of it.

The day we had planned our outing to Blue Ridge Conservation Center, the forecast was for rain and thunderstorms, but even though the sky looked threatening when we set out, it cleared and became blue while we walked along the trail, and once again, I was able to keep up with my friend, there was a nice breeze that made the heat and humidity bearable, and it didn't start raining until long after we got home.

My granddaughter posted to Facebook that her records at the hospital were incorrect when she went in for her surgery this morning.  There was no record of her allergies, nor of the fact that she had a pacemaker.

I had already prayed for her, but after reading her post I prayed again and asked for the Lord to protect her and keep her safe from any harm, and to guide the hands and intellect of the surgeon and everyone else in attendance.  As I was praying, I saw Jesus bending over this granddaughter and performing the surgery himself.

It wasn't long before my daughter sent out a group text letting us know that the surgery was over, had been much shorter than anticipated, and that the results were looking good.  Thank you, Jesus!


Got stuck in traffic behind an accident on my way to the doctor. Then when traffic started moving again, I made a wrong turn and wound up getting lost.  I called the office to ask if I should come in anyway, or just reschedule.  They told me to come in, and I arrived 20 minutes late. It all worked out perfectly though because the person scheduled after me had come in really early, and so they got to go first.
