A Lamp to My Feet

With the last 2 articles I think all of you can tell what I think of this so called “Pandemic”. I think all of us agree that our lives before were a lot easier to manage, but we are learning to cope. With God’s help we will not only survive, but we will thrive as our faith in him grows. Bad things bring out the best in good people and the worst in bad people. The question is: “What kind of person are you?”

Hi Everyone! I’m hoping that last week was a good one for you. John and I managed to get away for a couple of days. We went over to Skiatook Lake to check it out. Our grand-daughter. Alyssa has been working as a park ranger at the lake. She is actually doing her internship towards her master’s degree at Southwester. She loves the work and the lake and area are beautiful. It was nice to get away, even for only a couple of days.
