Goodbye (headed back)


Psalm 20:1 May the Lord answer you in the day of trouble! May the name of the God of Jacob protect you! 2 May he send you help from the sanctuary and give you support from Zion! 3 May he remember all your offerings and regard with favor your burnt sacrifices! Selah

4 May he grant you your heart's desire and fulfill all your plans! (ESV)

This is our prayer (one of them, anyway) for our grandson. It has been our privilege to assume part of his care for four months, while his mother was on duty six hours away, and his father took several extended trips with his work. His mother has been transferred back to a location near their home, and we feel that it is time to go back to South Carolina.

We will miss our daughter and son-in-law, their church, the Southern California weather, the plants, their church, and, especially, our grandson.

God help them, and help us, as we travel, and re-adjust to life back in upstate South Carolina, including, of course, our church.

I don't expect to post anything for a couple of weeks or so, except for one Sunspots, on Wednesday, March 1, God (and web connections) willing. I probably won't have time to read your blogs, either. Keep up the good work.

God bless you.

Have a safe trip, Dr. LaBar, and enjoy your trip home.

He is so cute. I'm sure you and your wife are so sad to leave him. I hope your parting is not for too long.
Hope your trip back is safe and full of interesting sights and experiences. May God keep you safe.

Wishing you safe travels, Martin.

Your little guy is really cute -- love that red hair :-)
