RE: SHARING GOOD NEWS!
Hello Bennett,


THANK YOU for your wonderful letter!

What a gift that was, for my birthday and our

anniversary! Bill and I had a lovely trip to

the South, to celebrate our 25th. While we had

some difficulty finding the lodge we stayed in, as

it was late at night-DARK- when we got there, we

were guided by god to the right place. We saw so

many gorgeous pine trees and hills! The lodge is

part of a resort we enjoyed, especially a big and

breathtaking butterfly conservatory, which has a

"natural area" full of trees, waterfalls and a

LOT of these lovely creatures fluttering around!

IT IS A CORNER OF HEAVEN!!! I didn't want to

leave; thank goodness we have a fine new camera

to take a lot of photographs with. We also saw

FDR's Southern home, The Little White House, in

which he was posing for a portrait, while he had

the cerebral hemorrhage which took him to Our

Lord. It is well preserved, and has a museum.

We saw and learned so much! We certainly ate a

lot of delicious Southern fixin's, and bought

some lovely silver anniversary gifts for each

other, or for ourselves! Afterwards, we went to

Atlanta, to tour Coke World! (I am CRAZY for

Coca-Cola: drinking Diet Coke, other Coca-Cola

products, and to collect Coca-Cola memorabilia.)

That began when we visited a Coca-Cola display

at EPCOT, during anniversary trip #10. WELL,

I certainly got my fill at this place! I bought

a big sippie cup and a toothpick dispenser, as

well as my husband buying me a bottle cap re-

mover. (The kind you screw into a counter.) As

a surprise gift, that you can decide the size of

what you wish to pay, both Bill and I received a

hand held bottle opener. We posed with the Coca-

Cola Polar bear, (he is automated) and I blew

him a kiss, before and afterwards, which he

returned! No one else had blown him a kiss, I

noticed, so when I did it, and especially when

he RETURNED it, I felt as if he were ALL MINE!

Bill designed a Coke bottle, using a computer,

I wrote "a letter to Coca-Cola" describing my

favorite Coke experience, using a special key-

board (a little messy, I'm sad to say, due to my

rushing it, as there was only one, and it is so

noisy and crowded in there. This is a building,

not a park, so all the noise is enclosed! I

wrote of my most special Coke experience beginning

my memorabilia collecting experience at EPCOT,

which has grown! There is a hallway that shows

the history of this most famous soda, beginning

with a bronze of John S. Pemberton, the Atlanta

pharmacist who invented the formula, at the lovely

marble soda fountain. (Bill and I are going to

the Hook's Drugstore, which is 100 years old, at

least, Sunday! It is now on the Indiana State

Fairgrounds, and only open then. A good thing

for our bodies: the ice cream creations are so

delicious there, we'd weigh 300lbs each if it were

open all year. The rest of the store is so fas-

cinating, with goods and doctors' tools of the

time. Also, Coca-Cola memorabilia! I hope they

wil have a discounted Sundae on Sunday! There is

a film of all the commercials and a huger room

where you can have a taste of EVERY Coca-Cola

owned product ON EARTH!!! My favorite is the

pineapple FANTA from Argentina. (I did not know

how many products (Minute Maid Lemonade, Seagrams

Ginger Ale, FANTA, HI-C {Which Mom and Dad always

had for us when we were little, the orange flavor}

and a certain brand of root beer, I don't remember

the name of, maybe HIRE'S, until I used a Free

Style Coca-Cola machine, a few years ago. Our

area's brand new Meijer's has one: discovering it,

I was in HEAVEN!!! I knew, from the EPCOT display

and the Coke World website, there would be one,

but not that it would be so HUGE! DELICIOUS!!!

BIll, being a German, did a lot of mixing formulas

in a liquid smorgasbord...he is a great cook, and

likes very much to EXPERIMENT! OF course I ADORED

the gift shop. I'd already bought several of the

things there, which helped my pocketbook. Some

things were just not po$$ible for our pockets!

Others, I've learned, have to be bought from

the company, online. RATS, I DO want an ice

crusher, some day! You DO get a FREE little

bottle of either Coke, Diet Coke, or Coke Zero,

(the new bottles you see in the cashier's aisle,

at the drugstore or grocery store, 12 oz) AND

when you are leaving, you get a FREE original

Coca-Cola bottle, the 8oz. it all began with.

DID YOU KNOW: Coca-Cola was once DELIVERED, by

truck, as milk was? We saw a truck!


One thing, sadly, we did not see, was my grand-

mother's grave! She is buried in Atlanta. My

mom gave specific directions, burt left out an

important part! I was so upset, but Mom did

understand.


God led us safely home and there was a LOVELY

surprise waiting for us: a beautiful Happy

Silver card, with a VISA card in it, from a

relative. That made getting back to reality

a lot easier!


I am still praying we can go on a cruise, as we

did on our honeymoon, not just for the fun of it.

All the driving is hurting my husband's knees, and

finding things in the dark is difficult and it

was sometimes a bit dangerous (We got ourselves

into some CRUMMY parts of town. Not Deliverance

territory, but close enough...and it makes us so

irritable, tired and snapping at one another.


Considering our tight circumstances, this trip

WAS A GIFT from the Lord and my family who

certainly provided fund$$$$!!! I believe HE did

reward us for staying together throughout hard

times, for 25 years, depending upon HIM!


Bill just left to do his witness for the men's

group of our parish's Christ Renews His Parish.

PLEASE pray for him: he has the deepest faith,

but he is not at all good at writing or speaking.

I do believe God swill have this child "Shining

Through" as He does for ALL His children who

follow His Word! He's been asking me to pray

a lot for it, so I know he is worried and nervous

about it.


THANK YOU FOR BEING MY WONDERFUL FRIEND IN CHRIST!


MANY BLESSINGS UPON YOU, ANNE

Your email :)
Wow! :) Bennett, thank you very much. I live in the country (Rural). I sit in my truck at night in the dark and listen to Karen's songs. It's my time alone with her and it ministers to my soul. I think back when the songs first came out and remember. I remember she made me feel and when i first saw her picture. My older brother had the first 8 track i ever saw. She was pretty, had a smile that melted my heart. She had the nice girl next door look. Totally different from all of the musicians of the day. She was better than Olivia Newton John, in personality and her presence. Karen was/is a nut and fun. I wanted to meet her. I wondered if anyone read them or what people thought of my comments. It means alot to me that my comments make a difference in someone's life. I'm sure you know they are from deep in my heart. I guess it shows. Thank you so very much. Mike

RE: SHARING GOOD NEWS!
THANKS SO MUCH, Bennett!

The Lord has been very good to me! My husband and

I just returned from a party for my mom's

birthday. Nothing is better than a family

celebrating a happy event! I got to play with

my little nephews and nieces to my heart's

content, and be in the loving presence of all

the family, except a few who live in another state.

I went swimming at the YMCA Thursday night, in

the outdoor pool, for the first time in a LONG

time...it was soooo refreshing and (especially)

gets every bit of tension out of me!

My Christ Renews His Parish meeting went very

well, as always. We are discussing fun things

to do, besides our meetings and retreats.

Also...we're deciding upon certain acts of charity

to do...please help me decide what is best for

me to do! Also, please pray for my very dear

friend: he has a PhD in psychology and is a

college counselor. So, he is in Orlando now,

providing much needed counseling.


All is well here, tonight, may all be well with

YOU, and always! My b-day will be soon, my

husband and I celebrated his b-day and our

SILVER anniversary will be late in the summer.

REASONS TO CELEBRATE!!! GOD BLESS YOU, ANNE

SHARING GOOD NEWS!
HI BENNETT,


I had to share with you this good news: my

physical had revealed a lower kidney function

than the past two physicals did...so, I had to

have a renal ultrasound. Also, I caught a

terrible cold around the first of the month, that

just would not leave me. HOWEVER: The ultrasound

proved nothing was wrong. Also, the cold finally

left me, about 2 weeks ago. PRAISE GOD!!!

My 52nd birthday is near...WHAT A GIFT!

I pray you are doing well and I thank you for

being such an inspiring believer in JESUS!


GOODNIGHT, ANNE
