Excerpt: The Pursuit of God, The Human Thirst for the Divine, A.W. Tozer

O God, I have tasted Thy goodness, and it has both satisfied me and made me thirsty for more. I am painfully conscious of my need of further grace. I am ashamed of my lack of desire. O God, The Triune God, I want to want Thee; I long to be filled with longing; I thirst to be made more thirsty still. Show me Thy glory, I pray Thee, that so I may know Thee indeed. Begin in mercy a new work of love within me. Say to my soul, "Rise up, my love, my fair one, and come away." Then give me grace to rise and follow Thee up from this misty lowland where I have wondered so long. In Jesus' name. Amen

35?? Can't be True!

But it is! Our first baby is 35 today! How did that happen? I don't remember getting that old! But it is true. Jessica Ann has been a joy since the day I found out I was pregnant with her. I wasn't sick at all. In fact, I never felt better! :-) She was such an easy child to raise. I thank God for giving you to us! Happy Birthday, sweetie! I love you so much!

We left the hotel this morning at 7:30 to arrive at the Preacher's meeting by 1:30. That would give us an hour for lunch and stops along the way. We ate a light lunch since there is always lots of food at these meetings.

We love our Brothers and Sisters there in West Virginia and always enjoy the fellowship!  We left there a bit past 8:00 pm and were home by 11, I believe.  Not a bad trip at all.

Here's the photo I wanted to post last night, but forgot I didn't have the adapter with me for the microSD card in my phone.
Tim and his mom, Jeanne

More tomorrow!
