For most of the Pandemic I have watched church meetings via Zoom, but last Sunday I am thankful that I was able to attend in person.
2. Perfectly peeled hard- boiled eggs
For some reason the chance of me being able to peel a hard-boiled egg perfectly is often a catch-as-catch can result, but one day this week the shells slipped right off just as I hoped. The end result was a perfectly smooth oval egg instead of an egg looking like it had been scarred by chicken pox.

4. Another helpful customer service representative
Earlier in the month I shared an experience of talking with a helpful customer service representative after we had been victims of fraud. This week I received an email about some rewards earned at a pharmacy we use. There was just one thing wrong, I didn’t make the purchases, and the store where the purchases were made was almost 2,000 miles away and the purchases had been made that very morning I read the email. There was no scam or fraud involved, but instead there was an error made by an employee who merged two rewards accounts apparently assuming there had been an error on their part when a customer who had the same name as me made a purchase. The customer service representative unlinked the accounts while we talked and he contacted the manager at the store where the error had been made to let him know what had happened so the employee could receive further instruction.

This has been in my mind and heart this week as I have prayed daily for the safety and well being of those caught in the midst of conflict and war in other countries and for those trying to escape to a safer place.
