Reflections: on Driving to Church in the rain


We left it with Lynn and went to Gordon in Raf’s truck, which I really can’t stand, but when we got back to town Lynn had fixed the car, and it was purring like a kitten!  Lynn has done mechanical work for us before, and we find him honest, a great quality in my opinion, fast, and his prices are right. 

So, we highly recommend Automotive Tech Center to anyone who has car problems!

As we are older now, there is something I want to be sure to mention.  I feel that it is very important to always have the GPS on our telephones turned on when we travel and to let our daughter and grandson know where we are going and when we are expected back.

I have a friend whose parents drove off one day, got lost, and drove until the car ran out of gasoline.  Thankfully they were missed and found in fairly short order, but it’s important to be safe - in the same way, when we were younger and went on hikes, with or without the Boy Scouts, we always left a note in our car of when we left, when we expected to return, and where we were going.  Being wise is being safe!

I do want to mention, too, that my uncle, Elmer Dillard, died this past week.  He is the last of my father’s generation and was married to father’s youngest sister, Silva. He will be truly missed. He was a wonderful, sweet, intelligent, protective, loving man.  Elmer, may you rest in peace.

Lives again our glorious King, Alleluia!

Where, O death, is now thy sting? Alleluia!

Once he died our souls to save, Alleluia!

Where's thy victory, boasting grave? Alleluia!
