Blessing Blackburn Musical ~ Installment 3
“Two are better than one, because they have a good return for their work.” (Ecclesiastes 4:9)

Susan was ready for the world and we were ready for her.
Astonishing, isn’t it, that I could drop a pound coin into an internet machine at LHR and learn that one of our intrepid elders had been lost but now was found?
Three years ago, 83-year-old Betty from the state of Georgia, USA, did not know silver-haired Pam from Australia. Now they have become frequent Susa-event roommates. When Betty did not arrive as expected in Newcastle, Pam SOSed the group email list of those traveling to Newcastle. Tout de suite, fans from other countries tracked down Betty at her son’s home in Georgia and reported the finding. Betty had missed her flight and would be delayed for a day. All were relieved.
This is the necessary era of simple, inexpensive worldwide communications into which Susan has come to prominence.
In the fullness of time, Susan was ready for the world and we were ready for her.
“If one falls down, his friend can help him up. But pity the man who falls and has no one to help him up!” (Ecclesiastes 4:10)
