Well, I did a little shopping, not nearly enough, and visited my baby boy bird to see his tree. He is so proud of his little two room apartment and with good reason. It is really sweet.

12 days left until the book comes out. Time is going way slow!

I will be glad and rejoice in thy mercy: for thou hast considered my trouble; thou hast known my soul in adversities;
The word rejoice is defined as to feel joy or great delight. The psalmist tells God that he rejoices or feels joy and great delight in the mercy of God.
