The Inauguration
January 19, 2017, 12:00 AM

It’s been a while since I wrote to you!  I was able to meet my cousin’s granddaughter Francesca Gail (“Frankie”) over my post-Christmas holiday, which was wonderful.  Like all babies, she is the most beautiful in all the world! 

Friday the 20th is the inauguration of the new president.  I know that some of you have voted one way, and others another, so not everyone is likely to be happy with the change, and many feel that the changes to come are going to be substantial, and perhaps not all will be welcome.  I can only assure you that God loves us all, and will give us the strength to persevere through any difficulties. 

Please remember that we are a community, called together by God, to be together and to care for one another as best we can.  We have all taken vows to “strive for justice and peace and to respect the dignity of every human being, with God’s help.”  We all love our country, and want our country to be the best it can be. 

Be active in our towns and cities, be in touch with our local, state, and federal representatives, and, above all, PRAY for God’s will to be made known and to prevail.  In mutual regard and respect, we will be able to do what needs to be done.  Let us pray for one another.  May God’s blessing be with you each day.                                    

Love to all, Evelyn+
