Hello Friends,

As I write this it is a beautiful Monday morning.  The sun is shining and this weekend was pretty and warm.  It is amazing what some nice weather can do for one's spirit.  The yard is clean; I set up my clothesline on the back patio, and things are looking good around here.  Mom is coming to Mayberry for a couple of days, and Cary and I are contemplating our summer plans.  Work is picking up  for the first time in three years, and the doom and gloom has lifted a bit.  Perhaps the future will be bright after all.  Hope so.  

Even though things are good here today, I have many on my heart who I am praying for.  Some need privacy, but they know who they are and that we love them with our whole hearts and are lifting them up in prayer.  For the less private matters, I especially want Lisa to know that I am praying for Papa and her whole family. To my Arkansas cousins, I want you guys to know that I am so sorry about the loss of your dad, grandpa and uncle, Wayne Henderson.
