Jo Doolittle

Our lives are pretty much the same since the last update. Caregivers, appointments, weeding and cleaning flower beds, rest and recovery from all activities.  Friends helping with Jim, bringing food, visiting and sending cards and notes. We welcome all of them. 

No more falls for Jim since the last update.  Seeing God active in our lives, seeing the trees, flowers and birds singing as we welcome spring weather is encouraging. Gives us encouragement to continue to be obedient to Him. Thanking him for all He does including loving us to the point of sacrificing His Son Jesus so we can have eternal life.

Thank you for everyone who has encouraged us in some way. We are grateful.
