It was such a lovely day today. The temperature got up to 76*F. (24*C.) and the sun was shining brightly. Such a pretty day.
I worked so hard on my lesson for today. There was so much to cover and I waited too long to start studying. I was finally finished at 1:30 a.m. I decided to wait until this morning to print it out. And wouldn't you know it, the printer decided it needed to have the printer heads cleaned before it would print this morning. It's always something.
The study went really well today. I had five ladies besides myself which is the most ever. There was a lot of participation which I really like.
This afternoon both my pastor and Joe had to go get x-rays. Since they go to the same doctor, they were getting their x-rays at the same hospital. So they decided to go together. While they were gone I took a short nap. I'm so tired.
They also went to see Miss Dottie from our church who is a patient in the hospital. Dottie is 93 years old and in very poor health. They are talking about putting her into hospice in a very few days. Joe said she wasn't sure who they were and was very weak. She said she wanted to sleep so after a few minutes they left. Her daughter attends the Tuesday Bible Study and said Dottie is not expected to live very much longer. After seeing her, Joe agrees.
Please pray for Miss Dottie. She said she wants lots of prayers. Please ask God to be with her as she goes through this time. I'm already crying as I pray. She is a special lady to me even though she always told me I was the special one. Here is a picture of her from six years ago when she was healthy.
I finished the next series of videos I was watching. It was the BBC's "Mary Beard's Ultimate Rome: Empire Without Limit." There were four parts and all were excellent. I especially liked part 2 which showed the city of Ephesus. It was really cool to see Mary Beard walking the streets, standing next to the ruins of the library, etc. and knowing that on that very spot there once stood the apostle Paul and first century Christians. It's one thing to see a photograph and something entirely different to see a person interacting with the building. It would be even better to be there myself, but this is the next best thing.
APRIL @ 7:00
The sunsets are prettier now. Except for yesterday when it was raining.
For today, I couldn't decide which I liked better, so I gave you two pictures.
Talk to you all soon.
