2020 February 09 Sunday in Liberty Hill, Texas http://TomAndEllaJournal.WordPress.com

slept just under six hours this morning. However, I awakened on my own without the aid of an alarm. I guess that means that I had slept enough. Who am I to argue with my body’s determination of how much sleep it requires?

ixty two degrees this morning. No wonder I was too warm under the covers last night. No sunrise photo because of the heavy clouds cover.

astor John Saint’s sermon “THE COURAGE TO BE” was insightful.

s I was using my phone this morning and entering in a message, I got a piece of glass from the cracked screen protector in the tip of my finger.

o once worship and Sunday school were over, we went to Verizon to get a new screen protector. We went to the store closest to home. They did not have one. Rather than drive to the next closest one, I called them and gave them the information about my phone. They said they had one and It was $38.00.

ather than drive to that store, I went to Amazon. My search brought up several options that fit my phone. They ranged in price from $7.99 for a pack of three to $19.99 for a pack of two. Both with guaranteed next day delivery. I ordered the cheapest. Our I f it works, great. If It doesn’t, I’m only or $7.99 and may be able to return them. Right now I’m operating without that screen protector so as to not get more glass in my finger.

This year at Christmas time, I

had a remarkable encounter. I

(Santa) was sitting in my big

chair at Lakeline mall when I

noticed a young woman who

obviously had “special needs”

and her helper standing

outside the set. I went over to

her and was introduced. I was

told that she was deaf and

nearly blind.

I signed, I am Santa, to her. She reached up and felt my face

and hat then took my hand

and pulled it close to her face.

She found the edge of my

glove and was pulling at it. So I

removed the glove so that she

could see/feel my hand. She

then once more examined my

face. After slightly pulling on

my beard (yes it’s real), she

signed that I needed to cut it. I

laughed and signed, I love you

and merry Christmas.

o sunset photo because there was no visible sunset. And from the forecast the next four days will be more out the same.
