She is clothed with strength and dignity, and she laughs without fear of the future. Proverbs 31:25 New Living Translation
I (Dana) would like to thank everyone for your birthday greetings to me yesterday. I was so blessed and it is wonderful to know that I have SO many dear friends. I am a rich woman indeed! Even though I’m now at the age where I’ve stopped counting, I appreciate your prayers for strength and health for the years to come. I pray for the strength and dignity of the Proverbs 31 lady and the ability to always LAUGH at the future. We are busier than ever and when we return to Haiti the first week of August, there are many new projects awaiting us so we are ALWAYS in need of your prayers for strength and a good sense of humor!
I mentioned one of those projects in my last post. You can check it out here. We pray that if the Lord speaks to your heart that you may help us help Tedson with his schooling. It would certainly take one of the many responsibilities that we have off our shoulders.
My sister got together some of her dear friends here in Jacksonville for a brunch yesterday. They didn’t know it was my birthday, but the Lord did. I think he has ways of showing us we are special to him. When they learned it was my birthday, they came bearing gifts. One of them was this handmade card which I love so much. In fact, it has given me an idea of a craft project for our Haitian women to make. Isn’t it lovely? Yesterday afternoon, Prit, John, and I ate a birthday dinner at Cracker Barrel. I had the joy of talking with Gabe last night, then video chatting with Deb and Sam — the end to a perfect day!
