Old address now gone!

Today our apartment seemed rather quiet... Since my return from the states we have had a special friend from the Netherlands staying with us and he just left last night. I have been busy preparing meals and helping out with small projects while he was here and today I just took a good long break.

I decided it was time I organized my new address book so I spent several hours sorting through names and writing in the many I wanted to include. It was also rather sad because the old address book I have used for many many years just seemed to hold a lot of memories of names and people that are no longer living. In order to try and stay organized I really had to part with it and start a new list. It took me most of the afternoon but at last I have added all the names and addresses so now hopefully I can find your address easily when I find time to send you a letter. Even with all the electronic devices and computer advances we enjoy I still like to send "real" letters by post mail and it is even more enjoyable when I receive one in my mail box :).

I did throw away the old address book but I will always remember the names of those no longer added to my new book. Time has a way of moving on so be sure to take a minute or two today and enjoy some quiet time. It is refreshing!

"O God, you are my God, earnestly I seek you." Psalm 63:1
