Below is Astrid and her friend Jennie at the Football came. Russellville won the first game of the playoffs but now must play number one Pine Bluff this weekend.
Helen, hang in there. Tomorrow is a new day. Erin says when one has trouble day to day...think hour to hour. Hope Cuz Winnie is ok. I have been remembering all you, my family, in my prayers and will continue. Erin, also, gave me a good statement about holding your tongue. Least said, sooner mended! What wise words to live by. I read a devotional. This year's is "Utmost for His Highest". Last night's lesson was "we should not try to fix everything in other's lives". Of course, we should do all we can for others, especially children, but we should not take all the bumps out of their roads as that is how youngsters learn to deal with life. The lesson said that some trials God may send for a purpose and if we erase them we have interfered with His purpose. I certainly don't mean that we should not help others and do what we can for others, but if one always travels on a highway with no pot holes, what would they do on that red dirt road I grew up on.
