Thursday

LORD, you establish peace for us;

all that we have accomplished you have done for us.

~Isaiah 26:12~

 

 

 

I’m thankful for God who loves us and helps you find peace on the difficult days we all have.

 

 

 

I’m going to be brief this morning because I have a long list of things to accomplish today.

 

 

 

I am thankful for a better rest last night.  I am thankful to wake up in my own house.  I am thankful to open the refrigerator at my own home. I’m even thankful for the sound of my washing machine this morning.  Being in the hospital for a few days certainly makes you appreciate being back at home.  I’m thankful that David and I are back at home.  He lost fifteen pounds of fluid in less than a week.  I know he will feel better today.  Please continue to remember David in your prayers.

Bro. Darryl Miller’s morning post:

Good morning. Today we will be recognizing our graduating seniors. Remember to pray for these young women and men as they continue their journey through life.
Also, we will have a Deacon ordination service for Ernest (Joe) Cutrer at 6pm. Ordination council at 4:30 this afternoon in the sanctuary.
As our graduates start to move out on their own, a lesson that I hope that they learn early is this- The little things in life make a big difference. A little of God’s blessings will have an impact of “goodness” in their lives that they can feel and others can see. Unfortunately, the same is true of a little sin. A small seemingly unnoticeable sin entering their lives will have a negative impact that they can feel and others can see. In order to truly be blessed we have to keep all sin at a distance.
Join us at FBC Kentwood this morning for Sunday School at 9:15 followed by Worship at 10:30. Our scripture passage will be Numbers 6:22-27. We will go Facebook Live at 10:30 for those that can’t be here in person.

 

 

I hope you will be in church somewhere this morning, but if you can’t, find a good pastor on television, computer, or i-phone.

Thanks go the person who sent a box of beads for use in the Operation Christmas Child shoeboxes.  Also, thanks to those of you who have contributed plastic Easter eggs for the shoeboxes.  Each and every item will go in shoeboxes in the fall.  We collect now and pack later.  Don’t forget to take the time to check out the items in the tote on the organ.  These items represent some of the items we will use this year.  You can also contribute by giving to the Operation Christmas Child Fund at church.  Marking you envelope “OCC” or “Shoeboxes” is all you have to do.

 

 

 

The weather has been beautiful.  We have enjoyed sitting on the patio.  Pray for everyone to be able to get out or to look out and enjoy God’s creation.

 

 

 

Please continue to pray for those who have needs.  They might be spiritual, physical, emotional, etc.
