Enter his gates with thanksgiving and his courts with praise;
give thanks to him and praise his name.
I received a letter and a suggestion for our next Bible Reading Plan from Bill and Velta Morris. Updates on their health were also included. That’s what I want to share with you this morning. First, he said birthdays have brought along some wear and tear (They are not the only ones!), but that makes them grateful because God has been faithful and continues to bless them. Velta will have another scan in January. After a couple rounds of radiation, her nodes are almost normal in size. He also stated that one day they will come back and he and Velta will “walk through that door when they do”. In the meantime her ministry includes things like sitting with folks and delivering meals. Bill said he and Art team teach a Sunday School class of about 55 each Sunday with Velta serving as their “right arm”! As you may know, Bill and Velta are as special to me as his parents were to me in my earlier years in Kentwood. I find myself speaking of them periodically, probably more often than any other couple of their age.
Yesterday was Mrs. Grace Chadwick’s 96th birthday! She is from Roseland and a fixture of our past lives. As a matter of fact, I have a list of ladies who attended the baby shower before I was born. “Miss” Grace was there. I can show you the area of the church where she faithfully sat at Roseland Baptist Church. Her husband helped my daddy study to be a Mason. I have lots of memories of them! Today, when we visit the Greensburg nursing home we “look her up” if she has not already found us! She always blesses us with numerous “stories” from our shared past.
You can use this like to get the the LIVE BROADCAST at 1 P.M. today. I will be working at the church at that time to prepare for the Lottie Moon Tea, so I hope someone will record it for us to use in the future,
Read the Bible – Titus, Psalm 23, and video on Titus at http://bleproject.com
Don’t forget the “Young” Ladies’ Birthday Party this morning at 11 A.M. at The Cafe.
What a great time of the year!
