Back in the Real World

This morning I headed out with my older brother and Beth to the grand confines of Penn Square Mall. It was good to be back in the real world. I took my trusty walker as my companion and walked the lower level. After the mall venture we headed out to lunch at one of my favorite resturants. I was pleased to discover that my energy level stayed strong and that my hip continues to respond well.

I have claimed the afternoon for reading. Yesterday I had finished Conversations with Jesus by Harold Fickett. I gave me several things to think about. When I had finished Fickett's text I dove into Growing an Engaged Church by Albert Winseman. This afternoon I finished up the text. It may be one of the more important books I have read in a long time. There are several principles he raised that I hope to discuss with our church family. I also began reading David Boren's A Letter to America. I plan to finish it before I head to bed. I still have four or five books I would like to finish before my "study break" finishes and I head back to work. Physical Rehab starts Monday.

I continue to be amazed by the cards, calls, visits and meals that the First Baptist family have shared as symbols of their love and support.

Grace and Peace, Tom

In Spanish we say, "dichosos los ojos que te ven" or "dichosos los ojos..." meaning'how fortunate or blessed are the eyes that see (behold) you. That's how I felt earlier today. You look great!!
