I met dear Vangie at Forest Hill; I’m not sure how many years ago, but she used to attend my hymn-sings and Bible studies. She had a delightful sophistication about her; and, we had quite a few good chats, along with some wonderful laughter. She’s in my heart.

May God’s peace and blessings be yours during this most tender season; and, may He give you many lovely memories, so that you may always have roses in December.

Ever hoping . . .

Always in Jesus,
