    To Diana Miles on Ps. 103 -- It is a beautiful Ps., isn't it. For the past 3-4 days I went through a 'dry" spell of not being able to pray. Those spells are the worst!! But this a.m. He blessed me. I asked for His hand on me as I went to town later; I came to a stop light, then started to go on green, but 'just happened' to look to the left - here come a car thru his red light!! Love Him!!!
