Go Fish Ministries, Inc. News Letter Apr.1, 2011
Well April is already here and I’m in North Carolina, very unexpectedly. Rose called me a couple of weeks ago and asked if I could come and help with baby Evie while she transitioned back to work. Of course I said yes, so here I am! I went to walk with Evie today while Rose was in a meeting at Duke and got to see the magnificent Duke chapel. It was absolutely awesome! It might as well have been the Sistine Chapel to me, as I have never seen anything like it before. I walked around and looked at some beautiful metallic artwork of the stations of the cross and the stained glass windows above them were beautiful as well. The architectural design of the building was absolutely amazing. This was an opportunity of a lifetime for me. How often does a Mississippi girl get to see the Duke chapel! I was thrilled.
Baby Evie is doing well and has gained up to about 8 and a half pounds now. She’s just beginning to round out a little and get some baby fat on her. She’s so beautiful! She likes me to walk her around town and campus in her stroller while Rose is at work. She mostly sleeps, but I get to walk and get some exercise. I made her a couple of little dresses since I’ve been here, but I’m a bit out of practice and made them a bit small. Needless to say I’m making another one a little bigger. She’s growing so fast. We also took her to get her first pictures made the other day, so I should have some to bring home with me. I didn’t think I was going to get to see her for a long time so this was so unexpected. God is so good and allowed me this opportunity to see my daughter and granddaughter. And I’m loving it.
I left my garden back in Mississippi in pretty good shape so I hope it’ll be producing something when I get back. I mulched between the rows with news papers and then laid plastic over that to keep moisture in and weeds out hopefully while I’m gone. Selah and Joey promised me they would water if for me when they come home to check on things. They’re staying with their daddy while I’m gone and he’s supervising their homeschooling. I made out their school work schedule for three to four weeks, so hopefully they’ll be on track when I get home. I miss them terribly, but Evie is taking most of my time up here. I don’t have time or energy to miss them much, but I do anyway. I’ve forgotten how hard it is with a new baby until this year when I got two grandbabies in two months! WOW! God is so good!
Back in January I told everyone how my computer messed up and quit working and how I needed another one. Well God answered my prayer and my son Rock was able to get it working again for me and also got the internet working again on it. God is so good! Answered prayers remind me of that, even the ones I didn’t pray. God knew how badly I wanted to see little Evie and I didn’t think there was any way I could. Well Rose bought me a train ticket and now I’m here. Rose may have bought the ticket, but this was clearly a gift from God. All good things are from above!!!!!!!! I don’t remember what verse that is, but how true it is! God answers our deepest desires, even the ones we don’t even dare to whisper. I hope I never forget to thank God from the bottom of my heart. Well, I’ll go for now. But please pray for me while I’m here, pray for my family here and back home, and my children who are desperately in need of God in their lives. God bless to all and Go Fish 4 Jesus!
