God’s grace is sufficient.


People have asked how we are doing, seeing Marina’s condition and my continual hip pain, especially when walking and standing in the kitchen making a meal, and also at night disturbing my sleep. I do not want to boast, no, but yes, I do want to boast, not in myself, but in the grace of God. It is truly as the hymn writer wrote, “He giveth more grace when the burdens grow greater, He sendeth more strength when the labors increase; to added affliction He addeth His mercy; to multiplied trials, His multiplied peace.” I say, yes, amen, and I want to encourage everyone who is having serious problems because of Covid-19, or who is ill and/or in pain, or has other difficulties, trust God and keep your eyes on Him. One of my most favorite texts is Is.26:3, “You will keep him in perfect peace, whose mind (thinking) is stayed on You.” Marina and I sing every day, “One day at a time, dear Jesus, that’s all we’re asking you.” And sometimes it’s just one moment at a time. So, my dear friends, keep the faith, soon the Lord is coming, hallelujah. (2Corintiens 12:9).

Today’s smile:


In a previous post I mentioned that Marina is not well. Today at noon she had some pain and said, “What’s this going to be like when I get old!” She’s 84. 🙂. We had a good chuckle together.
