Some shutins were rather down (I wonder how much is due to the disappearing light) and some seemed as chipper as ever. We watched a squirrel for a while outside of Ella's room absolutely pigging out on the bird feeder just the other side of her window. Really cute, and he could care less that we were there watching him. He was interested in only one thing: eating ALL that food!!! Ella turns 83 tomorrow; I told her she was just a child. :)
It was a blessing to see them all - well, almost all. Two more to visit tomorrow! All these folks with so many reasons to be down, and yet leaning hard on the presence of their Lord, the One who comes to them in His body and blood to strengthen and sustain their faith until He sees fit to bring them home.
