New Songbooks Are In.....

We got our new Songbooks last Sunday. Today someone sent me one of the new songs being sung by a group along with a PowerPoint picture show. I did get teary because the words were so beautiful.I got an email from my high school friend in Florida - she and her daughter are driving up tomorrow to see her Mom and going back Sunday. Hopefully we can see each other. I'm supposed to go to dinner at the lovely Katarina's Friday. Hope I feel much better by then. I felt worse today than yesterday and having some stomach issues tonight so maybe it is "peaking"? Who knows? I haven't had any comments on my Blog lately - miss hearing Katarina's little observations. My dear BS came to my house for our study today which was so loving on her part. My oldest sister; Anncalled while my BS was here and we got a little caught up before another friend dropped by and I had to hang up before I wanted to. If you click on the picture you can see her bruises on her arm. When my sister Ruth and I went to pick her up to go see our Aunt in Hillsborough, she stumbled coming out of the hotel and kind of crashed into my car with that arm - and it's the one that has the most arthritis in it. It made me feel bad everytime I noticed it the rest of that weekend. Her voice sounded so good and strong today. I also got an email from my beautiful sister Ruth saying her doctor feels the surgery on her eye was successful but will know for sure next month. Whew! All good news.


  1. I LOVE the new song book! A little sad that some of my favorite songs have been shortened/tweaked a little, but that's ok. The one I am most sad about is "life without end at last" we sang that at my friend Sharon's funeral, and they shortened it from 4 lines to 3. I get teary eyed every time we sing that at the kingdom hall, and it is one that I sing to my kids almost every day. So, I will be sad to see it change, it was just perfect to me. But, on the other hand, change is great, and it's the changes that make the hairs on my back stand up to think just how close the end of this wicked system of things is getting!

  2. Thank you for your comments. I almost missed this one. I love that song too and sing it often to myself and in the car group. I'm sorry you lost your friend so young - but she will always be young now. Hold tight - not much longer.
