“The LORD brings death and makes alive;
he brings down to the grave and raises up.
The LORD sends poverty and wealth;
he humbles and he exalts.
This verse doesn’t say so, but he also sends the rain and the sunshine.
Tropical storm “Cindy” will soon be here. I think I should ask you to be prepared for lots of rain. My neighborhood will not flood, but I pray for those facing more flooding, especially those who have not recovered from the flood of last August yet. Remember to take precautions ahead of time. http://www.actionnews17.com/news/tangipahoa-parish-government-monitors-tropical-weather-2124411
Continue to pray for the leaders of our world and our country.
Thank God for the many Vacation Bible Schools in our area this summer. I love seeing the many pictures posted on Facebook. I think VBS is the greatest thing churches do for children all year long. Thankfully, most churches have VBS and invest time, money, and love into it each year.
Read the Bible – Jeremiah 14-17 & Psalm 17

Operation Christmas Child will send “shoeboxes” to thousands of children in November IF we make our purchases and pack the boxes for shipment. To do this in a big way means we need to shop in a big way beginning now. Smart shoppers always have their eyes open for sales and for seasonal items. Those who shop now are welcome to bring their items to my Sunday School room. I will store them until we pack the boxes. We want to help some needy children have some special items and INTRODUCE THEM TO JESUS!
“Set your minds on things above, not on earthly things.”

FBC, Kentwood has their bells(chimes) ringing at times that give people who attend church, but live out of town, get to hear them. People in town can enjoy them every day. Thanks to those who undertook to purchase the bells years ago and to those who keep them going today. The music is certainly beautiful.
Make a point of hearing some of the songs that first impacted your live.
