MABEL’S JULY/AUGUST 2023 UPDATE

Since my May/June Update, (thank you, son Mark) life has been blessed and non-stop……some planned by Yours truly, and some planed by the Lord (without consulting me!) 😊 Great idea! I rejoice with David the Psalmist who says in Psalm 16:5-6 (when he was weary and tired of running from Saul): “Lord, you alone are my portion and my cup; you make my lot secure. The boundary lines have fallen for me in pleasant places; surely I have a delightful inheritance…..” You will enjoy reading the entire psalm!


I have pictures of **time with widows groups **wonderful visits from old friends (emphasis on “FRIENDS” **birthday party with my “bonus* grandson Benjamin (the name “bonus” is what my “Moore kids” call me…..their prayer Mom: “Bonus Mom”….OK, so I now call all my “prayer kids” my “bonus” kids!) 😙 I’m sure my own family are happy to share since they become their “bonus family.” **At 88, never having been to Hawaii, Mark & Lauren treated me to six wonderful days in Hawaii at their new condo. (Dear friend Susan Bebo….friend in Alaska….now in Loveland…. lets me use her mlles on Southwest!) How blessed am I!


I take the wheelchair in airports, partly for MY need, and partially for protection of OTHER passengers!……Not enough space to tell you details——but i’m the only passenger I know who has had my pilots push my wheelchair to connecting gates when wheelchair valets failed to show!!!🥺 Is that not the best story of this letter??😊 Of course, my Savior pilots me, and He does a great job of getting me to the right place at the right time.


So as I am ending the major part of summer with a “rewind” of my days, let me say THANK YOU for any part you have in my life, and am praying the Lord will bless each one.

My prayer lists have your names…..the latest earnest prayer is for Bobby Hoobyar family. At 91, he joined Ed & many of our loved ones in Heaven recently…..praying for God’s peace & comfort for Jan & the family. (Bobby & Jan grew up with Ed in the same church….we were at Moody Bible Institute together…..many years shared! )


Thank you for sharing in my life and for the blessing many of you are to me.

In Christ’s delight, Mabel
