You will eat the fruit of your labor; blessings and prosperity will be yours.

~Psalm 128:2~

There are many around us still fighting the Covid virus. Please be careful, no matter your age.

The pickup day for the Fall Food Roundup is September 21st, a Monday. They will be here early, so it is best if you get your donations to the church by Sunday, the 20th. Items on their list of needs this year include aluminum foil, gravy mixes, ketchup, Pam cooking spray, and salad dressings (Ranch, Italian, and Thousand Islands). Let’s help to provide so the cottages will have a bountiful supply.

Today’s Prayer Focus

Let’s focus on the positives!

We are alive!

Our family members are safe.

Power has been restored or will be as soon as the linemen can repair your service.

We still have a home, even if it now have a blue roof.

Someone has checked on you.

You visited a neighbor you haven’t seen lately.

Meals, water, and tools have been shared.

Someone prayed for you.

You prayed for others.

Out of state relatives checked on you.

You had the opportunity to thank/show appreciation to others.

Schools have already started again or will soon.

Most area churches were able to have services of some sort yesterday.

Baptist Disaster Relief workers and others came to help and are still here.

The list goes on and on. Focus on the positives today. God still loves you and wants the best for you.
