Still AMAZED at God’s Blessings!

Tonight as I write I am thankful for so many things. Our recent trip to our hometown in West Branch, Michigan was an amazing blessing.

The time spent with family and friends at the memorial service for my father-in-law, Rick Zettel, was special in many ways.

  • Our great-niece Cydney wowed us all with her sweet angelic voice as she led us in Amazing Grace
  • Two of our Navy career sons, Paul and Philip, gave patriotic meaning to the Veteran’s service in honor of Dad’s Naval service.
  • My family was especially supportive to me personally as they attended my book signing at the West Branch Public Library.
  • My sweet Sister, Vicky, had a cook-out with all the trimmings and invited cousins I had not seen in years.Another special treat was picking up two of our grandchildren, Jake and Paige, in Indiana on the way. We had a great time showing them our hometown. Even though they had already spent quite a bit of time there during the time they lived in Gaylord, MI, they humored us and I know they had a good time.
  • In addition to all of that we were lovingly cared for at my very best friend Terry Barnhart at the “Barnhart B & B” – thank you dear friends! We look forward to our next visit to that porch swing and wonderful conversation. We always seem to pick up where we left off – the sign of true friendship.
  • I came home overwhelmed with the love and support of my family and blessed by God’s goodness in my life.

    Other things we did . . .

  • Church at Ogemaw Hills Free Methodist Church – great worship and the Word in addition to seeing many familiar faces.
  • A wonderful meal with Zettel family at G’s Pizzaria
