You begin to feel that a trinity of events is sufficient cause to wonder!
On Saturday we attended the funeral of one of my aunts — the first one of my father’s siblings to pass away. Clara May always had a twinkle in her eye and provided fun with responsibility.
On Sunday we learned that a cousin of mine, Harvey Somerville had died in a diving accident. The funeral will be this Saturday morning in Eatonia.
Then tonight I found out that another friend of ours, Lillian Szmutko, had passed away today. Almost thirty years ago we had been a part of a small group that met together. An old church building provided the setting, and we even tried out a pump organ for singing. Mike and Lil were very gracious people who lived generous lives with few resources! What a gracious example of Christian charity and character.
So, we are now considering a four day event — our Pastor’s prayer retreat — that was to happen next week. The event will happen, our question is whether we will be able to go. God knows the plans that we lay — but our times are in His hands.
