thank you! and 'friday pretties!'

it seems i always have something for which to be grateful here.
your prayers and encouragement have lifted me above the tide
that would have swept over me at my daughter's departure.   if
you knew how precious she is, you would understand our terrible
loss and brazil's great gain.   the Light seems to find her.

many of you left the kindest comments and prayers after my last 
entreaty, but i received the most input about gwendolyn's eloquent 
one.  if you have time to visit her, you will be comforted and inspired.

friday is the day we look forward to joyce's 'pretties.'  it astounds me to
see the beauty of God's creation presented for us to enjoy at all the lovely
blogs who participate.

my 'pretty' is from our beloved colorado.  the same God who formed
this majestic mountain,

set the seed for a delicate white blossom.

"for the Lord is the great God, the great King above all gods.
in His hand are the depths of the earth, 
and the mountain peaks belong to Him."
psalm 95:3,4
