I once again thank the Good Lord for promptly answering my specific prayers concerning situations over which I yield no control.
Happy 94, Grandma!

Had he not suffered from leukemia, my beloved grandpa would be 89 today, one year shy of being a nonegenarian. An admirable father and grandfather, he was profoundly street smart, assertive, wise, strong, spiritual, compassionate, empathetic, and dedicated. I look forward to joining him in the Kingdom of God some day.

Happy Fourth of July; God bless America and our troops. The Fourth of July Parade was once again very entertaining and uplifting but seemed to have less people involved than last year. The Discovery just launched; I pray that it does not crash. If it does, it will be a testament to the stupidity of the inspectors, etc. over at NASA.
