I did leave the house this afternoon to pick up a pair of jeans I ordered at Penny's. Because I have lost so much weight none of my pants fit me any longer. I was gone only about 20 minutes to pick up my new jeans. When Carol and I got married one of the first things we did as a newly married couple is open a Penny's charge card account. We have been buying material goods from Penny's Department stores going on 35 years. I still have in a closet a church dress coat I bought at Penny's when Carol and I were recently married. This coat no longer fits me, but I keep it to remember those first months of married life. Where have the years gone? Tomorrow we will be spending a few days with our daughter-in-law Emily and our three month old granddaughter Josie Joy. The Lord has been good to Carol and I over all these many long years.
So another day has gone by. Tomorrow we will be in the middle of the month. Existence keeps speeding by! No way out.

 Yea, and certain women also of our company made us astonished, which were early at the sepulchre;
 And when they found not his body, they came, saying, that they had also seen a vision of angels, which said that he was alive.
 And certain of them which were with us went to the sepulchre, and found it even so as the women had said: but him they saw not.
 Then he said unto them, O fools, and slow of heart to believe all that the prophets have spoken:
 Ought not Christ to have suffered these things, and to enter into his glory?
 And beginning at Moses and all the prophets, he expounded unto them in all the scriptures the things concerning himself.
 And they drew nigh unto the village, whither they went: and he made as though he would have gone further.
 But they constrained him, saying, Abide with us: for it is toward evening, and the day is far spent. And he went in to tarry with them.
 And it came to pass, as he sat at meat with them, he took bread, and blessed it, and brake, and gave to them.
 And their eyes were opened, and they knew him; and he vanished out of their sight." Luke 24:19-31
