On our last morning in Maine, we were loading the van when Dad ran quickly out of the hotel lobby and said “There’s a Pearl Harbor survivor in here that I think we should talk to!” Out we came, and then spent the next half hour or so talking to this 91 yr. old gentleman, Mr. Oster. We soon found out that he too is a Christian, and such a blessing it was to hear his story and learn more about our history as Americans! He was elated at the opportunity, sharing with us his sorrow over the fact that many young people are not being taught the true history of our country any longer. Because of Dad’s spirit of gratitude toward our servicemen, and his special love for WWII veterans, we got to sit under the counsel and wisdom of yet another godly man. Praise the LORD!

Following that, we had to see the coast just one more time before heading southwest for the FEW. Smile We spent about an hour out there together, taking in the breathtaking scenery and the cool, salty air!

Wait on the LORD, be of good courage, and he shall strengthen thine heart.

The LORD is good, his mercy is everlasting, and his truth endureth to all generations. Praise ye the LORD!

Oh the beauty of God’s creation, the blessing of being together as a family, the glory of knowing that all is well because of Who is in control!
