Today is a good day to focus our prayers on “Thank-you, God”. We have so many things to thank Him for.

  • Waking up today
  • Being able to get up
  • Food
  • Beverages, likely coffee
  • Rain
  • Roof that keeps us dry
  • Keep of listing things you are thankful for. Tell Him.


  • Mrs. Laurie Miller continues to improve. Please continue to pray for her.
  • Mike Hornsby is now settled into rehab in Hammond.
  • Please add Doug and Amy Kent to your prayer list as they adjust to having a college-age daughter in Kenya for six weeks this summer and with no way to call home. Mission work requires adjustments not only for the missionary, but also for the family. This can be very hard. Believe me, I know!


We were blessed twice yesterday by people who are not members of our church, but who share with us because they believe in and support out work. One gift was handed to David at the funeral home yesterday. The other gift arrived in the mail from a person who gives support periodically. These gifts were encouraging and will be used in the near future to make purchases of items we need for out shoeboxes. I’m not. certain how we will spend the money, but it will probably go for flashlights and/or t-shirts. Ladies, you are greatly appreciated! People like you are a real blessing to us and to the shoebox recipients.

Saturday morning at 9:00, we will gather in the fellowship hall to prepare items for packing shoeboxes. If you can remove price tags, cout balloons or beads, fold a box, etc, we have a spot for you. You do not have to be a certain age or a member of a certain class, or even church, to help. Show up. We will greet you with a smile, introduce you to someone you might not know, and give you a place at a table where you can work. Come and be blessed! The more, the merrier!


It looks like we are going to have a rainy day. Rainy days are good for cooking something to share, calling someone who hasn’t been at church lately, writing a card to someone who is sick, lost a loved one or is lonely. Your friends will also appreciate your time and effort to contact them and to share some of yourself. These are not expensive task, They just require some love and unselfish time.

Be a blessing to others. Reap a blessing in return.
