Imagine my surprise when I encountered this person while passing through Walmart on the way home from my office yesterday afternoon! Click to enlarge.

I shall not be in my office today. I trust this does not impose any undue inconvenience on anyone; and if it does, I apologize.

I shall be taking Laura to Skyway Surgery Center for a surgical procedure this morning. The surgeon has assured Laura that all will go quickly and without issue.

I thank you, Lord, for guiding the surgeon's hands as he performs the surgery and for covering Laura with Your mercy and grace—ensuring that Laura's recovery is speedy and complete. To you, Lord, I give all the glory. Amen.

If you feel so moved, please join me in this prayer! Thank you.
