Pictured here are two women who are very important to me.  They are the oldest and the youngest members of our family.  My mother will be 95 in  December and my youngest granddaughter is not yet three.  As I spend this evening catching up some blog posts,  I am thinking about the long travel which will soon be upon me and the days I  invest yearly for this ministry the Lord has given.  Days with these two and all of our family are very precious and fleeting. Please pray for me as I seek the best balance among all the needs  of others in my life and the simple pleasures of sharing their lives.
