Tuesday

“There is no one holy like the LORD;

there is no one besides you;

there is no Rock like our God.

 

Please continue to pray for Bettye Fussell and Mr. Phillip and “Miss” Annie Bell Harrell.

David and I had a good visit with Debbie R. Miller yesterday.  She was glad to see us, as always.  Please keep her and her family in your prayers.

It seems we had been to a number of wakes and funerals lately.  That represents a number of friendships.  We never regret the special friendships God has blessed us with.

 

I have a good report to share.  David’s brother and sister-in-law from Holden finally got a trailer to live in while they continue to repair their home that was damaged in the August floods.  They are enjoying sleeping and eating in their new environment.

Bible Reading  – Numbers 35-36 and Psalm 52
The commandments, “You shall not commit adultery,”
“You shall not murder,”
“You shall not steal,”
“You shall not covet,”
and whatever other command there may be,
are summed up in this one command:
“Love your neighbor as yourself.”
Love does no harm to a neighbor.
Therefore love is the fulfillment of the law.
~ Romans 13:9-10 (NIV)~
“Blessed Assurance”

I hope you have that assurance.  If not, search for someone today who can guide you to that special, life-changing assurance.

Operation Christmas Child – Livia and a Necklace (Part 2) – https://www.samaritanspurse.org/operation-christmas-child/shoebox-stories-livia-and-a-necklace/

Do you want to create quite a stir and lots of questions?  Purchase items for OCC in big quantities!  You will have the cashier and a number of customers asking questions.  The best part is being able to share what you are doing and why!  You can encourage others to do the same.

The school supplies are marked down in some stores.  It is the perfect time to purchase markers, crayons, glue sticks, pencil sharpeners, highlighters, etc.  Get them while the price is the lowest.  You can stretch your funds a long ways at this time of year,

This week’s opportunities:

  • Sunday School and Worship – Check the church ahead of time; Different churches begin at different times.
  • Sunday Evening Worship Services still exist in a number of churches.  Enjoy the message and the music.
  • Today, meet in my classroom at 3:30 to discuss the next ladies’ night.
  • Monday at 10 A.M. – associational WMU meeting at Spring Creek to learn about the flooding at Mt. Nebo Baptist Church and pastor’s home.  We will also learn about their recovery efforts.
  • Wednesday – Mission organizations for children will meet in the L-wing at 6 P.M.
  • Thursday – Monthly “Third Thursday” gathering at the cabin.
  • Friday – Bible study at 10 A.M. to begin John 8.

This is the Lord’s Day.  Honor Him!

Thursday Addition

As I opened my email this morning, I prayed for the right verse for me to pop up.  It did! Thank you, Lord Jesus!  I needed that reminder.

Have I not commanded you?

Be strong and courageous.

Do not be afraid;

do not be discouraged,

for the LORD your God will be with you

wherever you go.”

~Joshua 1:9~

Mrs. Sis Cox of Greensburg had surgery at Ochsner yesterday.  She came through the surgery well.  Pray for her as she recovers from surgery.
