We are praying for all those who were impacted by the bombs in Boston, yesterday. That seems to be pretty much everyone---the injured, the onlookers, the workers, the first-responders, the people of Boston and Massachusetts, the whole country. Thank God all the bombs didn't go off!
I asked you all to send up a prayer for my MRI last week. Thanks for that! I'm happy to say that it was clean and the old brain looks good! I'm just a leetle bit hard of hearing!
Eh? What's that you say?
My friend Pat Gohn released a gorgeous, blue book recently, and there's a 10-day blog tour that started yesterday. You can still hop on and join the tour, especially if you missed out on spring break! It's a podcast-style tour where you get to hear Pat's lovely voice reading excerpts from her book Blessed, Beautiful, and Bodacious. This book really speaks to me, not just because Pat reads excerpts ;-), but because she sounds like she's sharing, over a cup of coffee, or a glass of wine on the back deck, about what it means to be created as a woman, and therefore a gift of God to all mankind, especially her family. Go listen to those excerpts and read what the other bloggers have to say; I'm sure you'll be hooked!
