Let me start todays blog by telling you I prayed for you lastnight, you, my blog friends! I had gone to bed early, thought I would read some Philippians and the above verse was about as far as I got. My eyes too tired to read but my head not tired enough to sleep, so I took it as a sign to pray for my friends. And I chose my blog-reading friends! And I've included the photos I took through the Similkameen river valley yesterday as I went out for a leisurely drive with my camera.
