    Thought of the week: All of your days have already been written in God’s book. When you go through a disappointment, don’t stop on that page. Stay the course. Keep believing. You may be tired, discouraged and frustrated, but don’t give up on your future. Our God is faithful.

    I sure will be glad when the weather makes up its mind to be warm, sunny and nice temperatures. I hope all of these cold spells and storms move on out of here for good. Happy 58th Birthday to me on May 19.
