I felt overwhelmed, starting my divinity study with three classes in a short summer term, where the workload is compound. Thank you for allowing me to “ease into the rhythm” of my classes… of my life. Let me be a kind wife to my husband. Let me be a good mother to my daughter. Let me be a gracious caregiver to my elderly disabled mother. Let me be an inspirational leader to my organization. Let me be a practicing Christianon a daily basis. “I am Wiley’s granddaughter”. Thank you for the love of my grandfather, which shaped my heart and mind as a little girl, growing up without a father. It was good to have conversation with my grandfather on last week. Even in his old age, he is as sharp as a tack…his slowing down with age isjust barely perceivable to me.He is ninety plus years old and able to hold a lucid conversation and take care of all his personal needs. He still cooks his own meals! I hope that I am “cut from the same piece of leather”. Thank you God for allowing me to find peace with my father…may his soul rest in peace. May I continue to hear Your voice Jesus and obey…please always be with me. I love you God, and I am grateful for Jesus and the Holy Spirit. Though I can never be worthy, I can say “thank you” and seek to live a life that is pleasing before You.
