    Such good words! Do you remember when you took that note, Marilyn? Don’t you love finding gems like this later?

    How are you, my friend? Summer has hit full force around here. Only praying things will slow down! Maybe we can have a little reunion some time this summer. I sure would love to visit the site of the LockKeeper’s house again. Just to say goodbye šŸ˜¦

      Ahhh, the LockKeeper’s House. Yes, let’s do it.

      I do remember recording the quote, and why it was meaningful to me, yes. I am still trying to be a patient waiter.

    Ah, I enjoyed reading your Henri Nouwen quote, Marilyn.
    And catching up here at long last.
    I wondered why I seemed to have lost track of your blog, but when I had caught up to where I left off, looked at the date…and discovered that was when I shifted house!!!
    Now I know why.
    Have been minding grandchildren for a couple of weeks.
    whew. Keeps me busy.

    Prayers for you Marilyn, good to hear the fog is lifting…
    and the retreat on forgiveness sounds interesting.
