Good morning, everyone!  I seem to have responded only to Susie; I intended
this for all the professed list.

I think what we've heard from Memphis sounds encouraging.  I'll scan and
send the applications when I get back.

I'm in Houston right now, and am planning to meet with the Texas people
tomorrow.  We'll meet from 2:00 through Evening Prayer and supper.  Martha
will make her initial promises and become a Novice at EP.   I do appreciate
your prayers!

In addition to this festivity, we're also getting ready for my grandson
Rory's first birthday party.  Today is actually his birthday, and we're
having the party Sunday afternoon after church.  Elizabeth has arranged a
very cute Winnie the Pooh theme, and we've planned a treasure hunt and
various other festivities.  The chief celebrants will, of course, be older
children, though perhaps Rory will lead the way on the treasure hunt doing
his inchworm imitation.  He's on the verge of taking his first unaided
steps, and seems to have opted to bypass crawling.

Love to all!
