To the Family, Members and Friends:
May the Lord bless you and keep you: the Lord make his face to shine upon you and be gracious to you; the Lord lift up his countenance upon you, and give every one PEACE. Numbers 6:24-26.
The Mason family were the first to welcome me to the neighborhood. Two years ago, I was sick and all alone; it was Thanksgiving and I was to sick to try and cook. That day I heard the door bell ring, it was Scott with a Styrofoam container filled with Turkey, dressing, peas, dinner roll and dessert. I was stunned and very grateful. The food was delicious. I didn.t know I was hungry, but the aroma was overwhelming. I prayed my prayer of Thanksgiving. This Family Practice Christianity in their daily lives. I love this family and I will miss my friend (Betty) I know she is at Peace and has earned her Golden Crown to show off her beautiful Red thick hair.
