Monday Morning Musings
As I said on Thursday, it was a busy weekend. I’m thankful for those who use their gifts in such powerful ways. Thanks to Kathy Miller who put together the bake sale. She worked very hard to make that a success. There are still some items being sold, so we don’t have the final numbers yet. Thanks to Rhea for getting together the pie day, and thanks to the many volunteers who worked to bring those pies into being. They are delicious—at least that’s what I heard. I also heard that a bit over 200 pies were made, but I haven’t heard the final count yet. Thanks also to Dick who picked up sticks (that all rhymed!). I’m surely missing someone, but we all appreciate so much those who are willing to do their part.
I think you all know that I believe in the power of prayer. I’m not often good about asking for prayer, though. I know some of your pray for my regularly and faithfully, and I appreciate that so much. I would ask, if you think of it in the next few days, say a few extra prayers for your old preacher. I do my best to stay positive and upbeat, but it’s been a hard, discouraging season—for many of us, I know.
Hope you could enjoy some of the beautiful weather yesterday. As I said in the sermon yesterday, there are signs that planting season is on its way. That having been said, I saw the s-word in the forecast for this week. That can’t be true, can it?
God bless. Praying for you all, and I love you all with God’s love.
Scriptures for this week:
John 12:12-19—Scripture says the disciples did not understand what was happening here. What do you think caused their confusion?
John 18—Why do you think Peter denied Jesus? What do you think you would have done in the same situation? John 19:1-27—What is the significance of John telling us those who were near the cross?
Philippians 3:1-14—What would Paul have meant by “forgetting what is behind”?
