We have been in Redlands for a little over two weeks now. The theme for this newsletter seems to be CHANGE. We have seen much change in the year we have been gone. We have begun to wonder just how many Starbucks one city can support. In one of the new shopping malls that has appeared this year, there are three Starbucks!
While we are here, we have gone to the storage unit and brought all of our pictures back to our RV to sort through and reminisce.  We have also sent pictures to many of you, thinking you might like to add them to your collections. The first attached photo shows us in 1966 with my mother and our three kids at  Knott's Berry Farm. The next picture shows Glen and me in 2004.  We’ve only changed a little. 

There are some things that haven’t changed. Our church still seems like home to us. Attending Maundy Thursday and Easter Sunday at the church was a very special treat for us.
The statue is still just as beautiful as ever. The roses are outdoing themselves, even in March. We are enjoying visiting with friends and catching up on the Redlands news.
We have made one change in our brand new motor home.   We now have a dual recliner love seat.  Now we can sit together and even hold hands!
We have kept all of our doctors’ appointments and we seem to be in good shape for another year of travel. We plan to leave Redlands on April 20 and will be visiting friends in Nevada, Oregon and Washington. Hopefully we will be able to visit Harvest House Publishers in Eugene, Oregon. They have published Roses In December for many years, but I have not been able to visit their office. Then we will head toward the midwest and finally New Jersey for another summer.
We have enjoyed visiting Life House Theater for a presentation of Joseph. I think Glen knows most of the script by heart. This week we will be able to attend the opening night of Pollyanna. We are hoping Glen will get to participate in a play on one of our visits in the near future.
One thing that has not changed is God’s love for all of us. He is faithful.
In His love,
