“Let the words of my mouth, and the meditation of my heart, be acceptable in thy sight, O Lord, my strength, and my redeemer.” (Psalm 19:14 KJV)
Today’s Bible reading – Proverbs 25-26
Visited Miss Ica Walley in the hospital yesterday. She seemed to be feeling well and was discharged yesterday afternoon. I really appreciate Betty letting me know that her mother had come home. Miss Walley is a treasure!
Visited the folks in the convalescent home yesterday morning. The folks from Youth Works were there. Everyone seemed to be doing well. Carol was doing Miss Carmen’s hair. Had a really nice conversation with Miss Jimmie Hall. Harold Dueitt told me that he is going home today. One of the residents has been admitted to the hospital so I visited with them late yesterday afternoon.
Drove to Waynesboro, MS and attended the celebration of life service for Rick Bradley’s Aunt, Sue Mills. I am fully aware that folks always say “good” things about a person when they have passed and sometimes you wonder if they are close to true. However, I believe that the two men who spoke at the service yesterday were speaking the truth when they shared about Miss Sue. Good, godly lady!
Tim Knighten sent me a message yesterday saying that Peggy has pneumonia. He still is not feeling well either. Tim recently turned fifty years old and it has been all downhill since then! Must be tough getting old – LOL! Pray for Tim & Peggy.
Per Kenny Lingle, the men from the mission are supposed to be with us in our 10:30AM service this Sunday, 6/19. If so, they will be singing two songs.
Jonny Gaston has moved his evangelism classes from Tuesday nights to Sunday afternoons at 5:00PM in the youth building. This is good for several reasons. You are encouraged to take part in these classes.
BTW, the Frontlines Mobile banquet takes place next Friday night, 6/24, in our fellowship hall beginning at 6:30PM. Tickets are $15/$6 and can be gotten from Elizabeth Westbrook or Ethan Nelson.
We are going to have a brief meeting in the auditorium this Sunday, 6/19, at 4:30PM to discuss and/or answer questions regarding having Josh Schlehuber serve as our student ministry intern in charge of activities for the next two/three months. We will then have the students and others meet with Josh in the CAB during the 5:00PM hour. I look forward to our students having activities this Summer. Pray for our student ministry.
Stayed up too late watching the NBA game last night. On Sunday night, June 5, one of our men sent me an e-mail that simply said, “Cavs? Really???????” You will remember that the Cavs got hammered that night by like one hundred points. My simple reply to him on that night was “In 7!” My position has not changed. I will explain myself after this Sunday night if the Cavs do win. BTW, Curry probably did not foul on the sixth one last night but the fifth one was like having Levi Seymour, Phillip Turner and James Mareno guarding you – it is called fouling with the body! As I say, they would have arrested him in Bayou La Batre for doing that!
This entry is late. I apologize. I sent it to Dr. Rex Looney for him to proof read and he got it back to me late.
I pray that you will have a great Friday with Jesus.
