  6. Why thank you, Mr. Terry. Very kind and thoughtful of you to make such a beautiful gesture for the benefit of us all. Most assuredly, I will keep you in my prayers as well. It's the least i can do.

    (You know, today has been an unusually prayerful day for me. I guess the desire was more palpable than what it normally is).

    I forgot to mention how much I liked that hearing that song again after many, many -- very evocative of earlier years. (Which is why I avoid listening to pop music, especially that from my youth -- it's too evocative, a song for every sin). When it first came out I liked it for its melancholy, which probably says something about my state of mind back then.

  29. Many, many thanks, Terry.
    I have received a great grace.
    Your prayers have contributed to it, I believe.
    God is good.
    And you are good, as well, because you are "in Christo"...you pray in the one Lord of All.
    Much love. FrJM
