Psalm 27

1 The Lord is my light and my salvation—
whom shall I fear?
The Lord is the stronghold of my life—
of whom shall I be afraid?

13  I remain confident of this:
I will see the goodness of the Lord
in the land of the living.

14 Wait for the Lord;
be strong and take heart
and wait for the Lord.

Condolences from family and friends

Dear Pat and family, Our condolences for you and your family. Today we heard of the decease of Mike. Last year we planned a visit to your home, but we had to cancel that trip because both parents of Nel died in that period. We regret it very much that we didn't meet and had a chance to learn more about each other. We wish you all the best. Gert Jan and Nel Hagen Schoonhoven, NL
