Summer in Winter


Today was the day…

That was gloriously sunny – was really summer in winter. I did a bit of work early and then Riana picked me up and we went to the beach to meet up with friends.

At about 12 noon, I left and walked along the Cat Walk towards Echo. There was so much activity. Council painters….

And an artist at work…painting of a different kind.

The day was spectacular. I hung out at Echo for a while. We can now access the top floor through the staircase which makes it so easy.

When we got home around 2pm, Julian arrived at the same time. This afternoon we put my cell phone photos on the TV screen. First we looked at memories of Egypt and then we went right through the progress of the build. It’s amazing how far we have come.

I’ll have to take a latest one from the road.

Meantime, Anne is home from the hospital. I am so glad!

We hope for the best but there is a sense that the numbers are on the decline.

Proverbs 2:6

For the Lord gives wisdom; from His mouth come knowledge and understanding.

The best is yet to come.

Keep the smile going.

God bless you.

In His Grip,
