Repent, then, and turn to God,

so that your sins may be wiped out,

that times of refreshing may come from the Lord,        

This verse reminds me of “You Must be born again” –

“A ruler once came to Jesus by night to ask him the way of salvation and right….”

A representative from the LA Baptist Children’s Home will be in Kentwood April 12 -13 to pick up special items that are needed at the children’s home before the Fall Food Round-up in September.  Some items they especially need are:

Laundry baskets



Laundry detergent

Individually wrapped candy

Leave your items under the stairwell at the office entrance.

“Do all your work in love.”

 I’ve always heard you should love what you do! The saying should be changed to match this verse.  It should say “in/with love”.

I hope others see Jesus as you go through your daily life today.
