TGIF . . .

This was the beautiful sunrise I wrote about yesterday. The system would not upload the image, but it did today. It is nice to wake up and watch the sunrise over the pond. Especially now since the daylight hours are getting shorter.
With all of the craziness that is going on, I just found out yesterday that the son of a cousin of mine- they live in another state- (now follow me) - his girlfriend's step dad shot his wife (her mother) then shot himself. Then it was noted that he also set fire to their house and also the daughter's house (which is where the my cousin's son was also living). The wife wanted a divorce and he had subsequently threatened her. Her and her daughter had filed a restraining order which we all know that ain't worth the paper it is written on. This could have been even worse because we suspect had the daughter and my cousin's son not been at work, he would have shot them also.
I mention this not to pile on more tragedy, but to ask for prayer for Mark and Kelly during this tragic time in their lives. This was an extremely close call. You always hear of it on the news, but rarely does something like this hit so close to home. Jesus is the answer.
I have to go now, i have an appointment.

Hi George, this is Carole's mom, Linda. I love the pictures you put on your blog. That Sun Rise is so beautiful. As I have said before, your blog is such a blessing. Keep up the good work.
