“The Lord's tender mercies are the very personal and individualized blessings, strength, protection, assurances, guidance, loving-kindnesses, consolation, support, and spiritual gifts which we receive from and because of and through the Lord Jesus Christ” (David A. Bednar, April 2005 general conference).
|The entire Bailey clan at the 100th Bailey reunion. Tender Mercies to be able to go to this historic family gathering. I missed my children and grandchildren!|
|The Sacred Grove in Palmyra NY. Lonnie and my brother, Bill went into Palmyra while we were in NY for my Family reunion. I had a wonderful visit with my sister, we talked and talked the day away. It was one of those tender mercies to spend time with extended family.|

I got some good pictures of the Amish as the drove past my sister's home.
We flew home on Tuesday. It was a very quick trip, but very nice to have been able to go. A very special blessing.

This week after getting back from our trip to NY, I needed to make a Dr appointment. Lonnie and I went to the VA to see if I could use their services since I am a retired USAR member. We went Thursday as Wednesday was a very busy day, just getting back to our mission. The first person we met at the VA was very helpful and set up an appointment but suggested that we go to the ER for my present problem. I wasn't sure as it was not a "real emergency", but Lonnie convinced me to go. They were very nice and agreed that since I did not have a primary physician that it was appropriate to go to the ER. I ended up getting several tests and a procedure all in one day(almost unheard of in the military medical system). The Dr that does the procedure just happens to be there on Thursday afternoons only. He is retired, but helps there on Thursdays. The staff was wonderful and stayed late, past their shift to be able to help me--my personal angels. The Lord is aware of us all and helps us along. Tender Mercies. We find the results of the test this next week. I received a wonderful blessing and have comfort.
But behold,I... will show unto you that the tender cmercies of the Lord are over all those whom he hath chosen, because of their faith, to make them mighty even unto the power of ddeliverance.
1 Nephi 1:20
My granddaughter, Miranda, texted this scripture to me, how perfect!
