Consider it pure joy, my brothers,
whenever you face trials of many kinds,
because you know that the testing of your faith
Perseverance must finish its work
so that you may be mature and complete,
not lacking anything.
A quote I heard at church last night:
“Christians need the patience of a farmer
and the perseverance of an athlete.”
I love to have Scripture show up in timely ways.
Who would have thought this verse would come to my computer
shortly after the quote I heard?
God has a way of making his points clear to us!
May we all be more like farmers and athletes!
I talked with Wendy L. Alford at church last night. She said her dad, Mike Lambert, is now in rehab and improving some. Please continue to pray for Mike and his family.
Last night, Lisa Piner, said her mother, Alice Faye Lee, did not need a stent or a by-pass. She will be treated with medication and will possibly be coming home Monday. Please continue to pray for this family.

Check the area in the hallway of the fellowship hall closest to the coffee pot to get ideas for your purchases.
I need to borrow three or four Scrabble games for a missions lesson. If you have one I can use, please let me know. You can bring it to me at church Sunday or Wednesday. Please put your name on a sheet of paper inside the box. Thanks!
