I am a short-term pessimist. To be honest many times I worry and then pray rather than pray and not worry.

Yesterday was particularly rough. I told you of my friend who now has cancer and his ex-wife who yesterday had a 10 hour surgery because she also has cancer.

Also the second semester grades for 16 of the older girls resulted in them failing math.

Just like many of you I begin my day in prayer and the Word. I miss having our many summer visitors. I miss sharing the Word in churches in the states.  

Worry causes stress. Prayer causes peace. I need to worry less and pray more.

This is our 60thhigh school reunion.
