February 22. The Lord gave us a nice warm day today, but cloudy. We did see the sun peek out once for a few minutes, and then it was gone. It was nice to get out for a stretch in the fresh air this morning.
Today we checked chapter 14 of Matthew and half of chapter 15. I also wrote an e-mail. Spent some time, too, on the “Bai Mi Maritim Husat?” (Who Will I Marry?) book.
“3According as his divine power hath given unto us all things that pertain unto life and godliness, through the knowledge of him that hath called us to glory and virtue: 4Whereby are given unto us exceeding great and precious promises: that by these ye might be partakers of the divine nature, having escaped the corruption that is in the world through lust.” II Peter 1:3,4
February 24. This morning after breakfast and quiet time, I started putting together the display board to set up in the churches when we travel. We need to get a different kind of tape, though, to border the foam boards and strengthen the edges.
At 9:30, we left here for Greenville. Ran into torrential rains along the way. Because of poor visibility, we had to slow down for a while and even pulled over once for a few minutes. We still got to the Smiths’ house around 11:00 and didn’t have any trouble finding it. Michael and Janice Berbin came as well, and also Ed and Barbara Guerrant. We enjoyed a good time of fellowship and lunch together.
Left there around 1:30, but it was 3:40 before we got home. Crawled along for quite a few miles because of a road accident -- a tractor trailer overturned in the median.
Twenty-seven tornadoes reported in the south yesterday and today -- Louisiana, Mississippi, Alabama, even Pensacola, FL. Texas had severe storms as well. Torrential rains, strong winds, hail over many other parts of the southeast up into Virginia. Daddy talked to his sister, and she said there was a tornado near where she lives.
Went to nap shortly after we got home. Even though it was a warm day, I felt chilled so bundled up with two very warm blankets. Have a terrible headache too. Slept a couple hours, getting up a little after 6:00. Christy and Connie came and rode to church with their Dad.
“He that saith he abideth in him ought himself also so to walk, even as he walked.” I John 2:6
