Today’s Prayer Focus – Summer TravelerS

This is the time of year when families travel for their summer vacations, to visit relatives, to view the wonders of nature God provided, to learn more about our history in museums, etc. Let’s pray for safe travels and wonderful memories. One year on Father’s Day, my mother asked my two sisters and me to tell of something special we remembered and were thankful for concerning Daddy. As we each took our turn, it soon became clear that the family vacations all across the country were our greatest memories. We traveled on a very tight budget, but had awesome adventures. Today, plan some adventures for your family. They will become great memories for family members to treasure. Pray for others as they provide special activities for their families this summer. It’s not about the money, but about the togetherness.

Vacation Bible Schools Next week – You can call the church offices to get more information and to register for VBS.

Monday

But from everlasting to everlasting the LORD’s love is with those who fear him,

and his righteousness with their children’s children—

~Psalm 103:17~

There is good news about Joell Miller. She seems to be doing much better.

Today is Memorial Day. https://www.history.com/topics/holidays/memorial-day-history

Memorial Day is an American holiday, observed on the last Monday of May, honoring the men and women who died while serving in the U.S. military. Memorial Day 2021 will occur on Monday, May 31. 

Originally known as Decoration Day, it originated in the years following the Civil War and became an official federal holiday in 1971. Many Americans observe Memorial Day by visiting cemeteries or memorials, holding family gatherings and participating in parades. Unofficially, it marks the beginning of the summer season.

As far as I know, I do not have any relatives who died serving our country, but David had an uncle, Hollis Alford, who was killed during WWII and buried in France.

Today is a good day to pray for our country. America needs God, but God doesn’t need America. (paraphrase of something we heard on TV last night). Let’s pray for Americans to focus on having God in their hearts and daily lives.

Mrs. Ruby Dillon i is home. Pray for her to regain her strength.

Michael Anthony’s sister, Joell Miller, had a surgical procedure yesterday. Everything seemed to go well. Please continue to pray for her.

A church member handed David a bag of batteries for flashlights for our “shoeboxes”. Thank-you so much. We are shipping four AAA batteries with each of the 150 flashlights for the oldest boys and an additional four as replacements for when the first four are no longer working, which makes eight per flashlight. We hope to complete this portion of our shoeboxes soon.

This week, we also received a bag containing an assortment of items for the shoeboxes. We are very appreciative of your help.
