You alone are the Lord. You made the skies and the heavens and all the stars. You made the earth and the seas and everything in them. You preserve them all, and the angels of heaven worship you. ~Nehemiah 9:6

SEVENTY YEARS

This Memorial Day is special to me in more ways than one. It marks the 70th anniversary of my baptism. I was 11 years old and was baptized in a little church in Norwalk, California. It was shortly after this, in the month of June that I first met my future husband. I had no idea I would one day marry him, but that did happen almost exactly ten years later in 1958. I spent the summer of 1948 in Oklahoma visiting relatives there and Clif happened to be the little brother of Charles who had married my aunt Vivian. They lived in Lawton, Oklahoma. I would later move to Lawton and go to high school there before moving back to California. I'm always amazed at how God works things out.

People will be busy this weekend doing special family things but many will take the time to share with us here on Spiritual Sundays.
