Dear Mariane and dear Edy, how you make me laugh! Edy, I thought of you today when I had my prayer time for our church. Among the monthly lists of things to pray for, I have a copy of the hymn "The Church's One Foundation," and at the bottom is the source--The Lutheran Hymnal.
For any who listen to Back to the Bible on the radio, our pastor, Dr. John Munro, is going to be the new pastor for the program. He will still be our pastor and can tape the sermons from home. He is a wonderful Bible teacher. He does some times preach about Job--which he pronounces like you work occupation.
We have an ongoing battle with squirrels trying to get on our bird feeders. Leon put the baffle up high, and they jumped from a juniper bush to the baffle and sat on it comfortably to scoop out the feeder. Frustrated, Leon took the feeder with a porch perch for the cardinals down yesterday, and one squirrel this morning climbed into the wire cage bird feeder. When Leon went out to shoo him away, poor fellow (or girl) couldn't get out of the feeder though he frantically tried. Finally he squeezed through one of the little places for birds to get in. Leon put other feeder back up and we haven't seen the squirrels on it YET. I told him yesterday the score was squirrel-100, Leon, 999.
