In our area there are lots of signs saying 'Pray for Blane'. I googled it and found some very interesting stuff: Blane Baxley has leukemia and spent time at Shands. I also found a relationship with Tim Tebow (the great Univ Florida football player). He was an intensely Christian. He may have been borne in the Philipines where his people served as missionaries. Further he has founded a hospital in the Philipines. He seemed to also be a friend of Blane.
Mary Joseph comes often to our Friends Meeting. At this one she was sick and chose not to go for fear of infecting the rest of us. But she was impeled to come to the door where she give one lovely blanket to Ellie and another to me. My blanket had in bold was the words of 'Amazing Grace':
Amazing grace, How sweet the sound That saved a wretch like me. I once was lost, but now I am found, Was blind, but now I see. 'Twas grace that taught my heart to fear, And grace my fears relieved. How precious did that grace appear The hour I first believed. Through many dangers, toils and snares I have already come, 'Tis grace has brought me safe thus far And grace will lead me home. The Lord has promised good to me His word my hope secures; He will my shield and portion be, As long as life endures. Yea, when this flesh and heart shall fail, And mortal life shall cease I shall possess within the veil, A life of joy and peace. When we've been there ten thousand years Bright shining as the sun, We've no less days to sing God's praise Than when we've first begun.
At the Library book store I found 'Pelican Brief' and paid 50 cents for it. Today we went to Ormon and St. Augustine. I dressed very inappropriately and we (unfortunately) went to Applebees where all the food was heavily spiced.
