ISAIAH 61:1-4

ISAIAH 61:1-4

The Spirit of the Lord is upon me and has anointed me to
Preach the good news to the poor. .
Bind up the brokenhearted,
Proclaim freedom for the captives,
Proclaim release from darkness for the prisoners,
Comfort all who mourn
Provide for those who grieve in Zion to bestow on them
The oil of gladness for mourning
And a garment of praise for a spirit of heaviness

A final goodbye

July 4th

I said "Adieu" to my friend on the 4th of July and have been in a funk ever since. I think M1 said what was on my mind, "Grandma, will we ever see Teresa again?"

I responded, "Probably, in a year or two." But I do wonder.

Prior to this visit, we were in Ecuador for a visit in 1995. Before that, we left Ecuador in May, 1979. This was her first time in the U.S. So...not a good track record for frequency of visits. But it doesn't have to stay that way!

Not so surprisingly her leaving reminded me of other losses. For the first time this summer, I had the urge to go visit Victor's grave.

Goodbye's are like that!
