  1. I love the story about Jo’s meeting with the lady whose husband had just died. God is so good that He gives us the privilege to help those who are struggling through difficult issues. Also amazed because I met Jo today at the Arts and Crafts at Family Space this morning for the first time and Lo and Behold here she is and I’m hearing her story. Lovely to see your happy friendly face and good to meet you.
