THURSDAY, 8/27/15

Today’s Bible reading - Job 23:1-27:23 2 Corinthians 1:12-2:11 Psalm 41:1-13 Proverbs 22:5-6

The visitation with the Exie Woods family begins at 10:00AM today and lasts until the noon service time.  The visitation and the service will take place in the church auditorium.  If you are helping with the food for the family, please have it in the fellowship hall no later than noon.  Thank you to each person who is helping with this ministry.

The visitation with the Russell Johnson family takes place this afternoon/evening from 5:00 – 8:00PM at the Theodore Church of God.  The service takes place tomorrow beginning at 10:00AM and will also be from the Theodore Church of God.

Mary Jackson & Doris Perryman were discharged from the hospital yesterday.

Cynthia Cumbie remains in the hospital and they will be running more tests today to hopefully determine the root of her problems.

Carla Kyser meets with the neurosurgeon this afternoon.

Eddie Whitmore will have his pump removed today which ends this round of chemotherapy.

Brian Amonett remains in the hospital.  Not sure what will ultimately be decided as far as his physical therapy is concerned but he is making progress.

Rusty Suthoff’s maternal grandmother is in the hospital.  Herbert Benefield has a niece in the hospital.

We had a good day in our services yesterday.  We were down a bit in our morning service but several of those missing attended our evening service.  The attendance in our 7:30PM Bible study for college/young adults was really strong.  We divided into an older and younger group after the meal.  Special thanks to Rusty for allowing us to use his house as a place of study.

These cooler temperatures in the morning are a real blessing.  The Lord is good.

I pray that you will have a great Thursday with Jesus.

WEDNESDAY, 8/26/15

Today’s Bible reading - Job 20:1-22:30 2 Corinthians 1:1-11 Psalm 40:11-17 Proverbs 22:2-4

Miss Mary Jackson was told by the doctor that she “may” be discharged from the hospital today.  If they give her half of a chance to leave, she will be gone!

Miss Doris Perryman could be discharged today as well.  It is possible that, whenever she is discharged, she will need someone to provide transportation to get her home.  If a couple or a lady would be willing to help with this, please call the church office this morning and let Miss Kittie know.  Again, this is not a definite but a possibility.

Cynthia Cumbie was admitted to the hospital yesterday.  She is in a different hospital this time and they seemingly have a better idea of what her problems “may” be.  She has been in a lot of pain.

The obituary for Miss Exie Woods is in an earlier post.  The Friendship family is going to provide a meal for the family following the service tomorrow, 8/27.  Carol Lucky will coordinate this ministry opportunity.  We will be asking folks to sign up during our morning service today.  If you are not going to be in that service but are willing to help, please call the church office before 10:00AM.  I think our ladies attending the 10:00AM service will provide sufficiently.  If not, we will ask in the evening service too.

The obituary for Russell Johnson is also in an earlier post.  Pray for the Johnson family.

Eddie Whitmore began receiving his treatment yesterday and will continue to do so until tomorrow.  Lisa visited with him yesterday and said he was doing  ok.  I think tomorrow begins the process of not feeling so well due to the treatment.  Keep praying for Eddie.

Mission of Hope service this Friday night, 8/28, beginning at 7:00PM.  The bus will leave the church at 6:15PM for anyone wishing to ride.  Everyone is invited to attend this service.

We are on a regular schedule this morning and evening.  Our preschool and children’s choirs meet at 5:30PM in the fellowship hall.  Parents, involve your children in these choirs.

We are making a change in our 7:30PM Bible study.  The meal will be served first and then the older group will move to Rusty’s house for their Bible study while the younger ones will remain at our house for their Bible study.  The meal for tonight is Mexican.  Lisa will do an outstanding job in providing that meal as she does week after week – pretty amazing!

How about this weather!  I walked outside around 4:00AM this morning and sixty four degrees felt wonderful!  We only get a couple of mornings like this before the temperatures go back up but I thank God for this reminder that Fall is coming!  God is good!

Speaking of weather, the National Hurricane Center is projecting Erika to make landfall on Florida’s Atlantic Coast on Monday as a category one hurricane.  Obviously, any of this is subject to change.

A group met last night to discuss the upcoming Upward basketball season at Friendship and a possible Upward (gulp) soccer season – are you kidding me!  Details forthcoming!

I pray that you will have a great Wednesday with Jesus.

TUESDAY, 8/25/15

Today’s Bible reading - Job 16:1-19:29 1 Corinthians 16:1-24 Psalm 40:1-10 Proverbs 22:1

Miss Mary Jackson remains in the hospital.  Hopefully, she will be discharged tomorrow.  She is so ready to get out of the hospital.

Miss Doris was kept in the hospital Sunday.  I was unaware of that but will visit her this morning.  She was taken by ambulance from our second morning service on Sunday (my preaching can have that effect on folks!).

Brian Amonett is in a regular hospital room.  I was able to meet him yesterday when I visited.  He is thankful for the prayer support.  He was set to begin hyperbaric wound care yesterday.

Miss Johnson (Tommy’s mother) was discharged from the hospital yesterday afternoon.  She was a happy camper!

Eddie Whitmore will receive a chemo treatment today which will last until Thursday.  Obviously, this is one that comes home with him. Pray that all goes well.

Caroline Ford’s daughter, Cynthia, has been having severe pain.  She was admitted to the hospital on Saturday but discharged on Sunday.  She is scheduled to see a doctor on Thursday.

The family of Miss Exie Woods will meet with the funeral directors this morning to make arrangements for her celebration of life service.  I suspect the family of Russell Johnson will do the same if they did not do so yesterday.  I will post the arrangements for both of these once they are completed.

Prayer meeting tonight from 5:00 – 7:00PM in the auditorium.  Obviously, we did not meet last week due to the revival service and it seems like it has been an eternity to me since we last met.  Please enter/exit the West side door.  Folks, we cannot ease up on our praying.  Come and go or come and stay but do pray!

Thank you to the folks who attended the GROW visitation meeting last night.  GROW begins this coming Monday night, 8/31, at 6:30PM.  I appreciate Bro. Jerry Hovel leading that meeting.

Maria Wainwright got me three more chickens as I was down to three.  The three I had are Baptists!  (I am beginning to believe that all chickens are Baptist)  How do I know they are Baptists?  Totally not accepting the new three – will not let them eat, mad because they are trying to roost in “their” spot, et cetera.

Tried to watch some of the NFL game last night.  Totally not interested as the game was boring unless you enjoy seeing the officials throw a penalty flag on every play.  So ready for the college games to begin.

I pray that you will have a great Tuesday with Jesus.

The newest semester of GriefShare begins tonight at 6:00PM in the auditorium and ends at 8:00PM.  Open to anyone.

The newest rotation of our GROW visitation ministry begins with a meeting in the choir room tonight beginning at 6:30PM.  It would be great if each Sunday School class would have at least one representative present for this initial meeting.

Visited Miss Exie Woods yesterday afternoon.  She obviously continues to not be able to communicate but does seem to be aware of her surroundings.  Her family is lovingly waiting beside her.

Miss Mary Jackson remains in the hospital battling cellulitis.  I will visit with her today to get an update.

Miss Johnson, Tommy’s mother, also remains in the hospital trying to clear her lung of the pneumonia and to recover from her fall.

Eddie Whitmore will receive another treatment tomorrow.  This will be second one of this new type of chemo.

Carla Kyser is waiting on the neurosurgeon to schedule an appointment.  Pray that this will happen rather quickly as she continues to have back pain.

Becky Sellers was her usual positive self yesterday.

The Lord blessed us with a good day in our services yesterday.  We saw two folks follow Jesus in believers’ baptism.  The Spirit was good.  The attendance was strong.  Pastor Alex did a nice job last night of sharing about the work of PTL in India.  I thank God for another good day.

The college football season is almost upon us.  Looking forward to it and looking forward to the cooler temperatures that come with it!

I pray that you will have a great Monday with Jesus.

SUNDAY, 8/23/47

Today’s Bible reading - Job 8:1-11:20 1 Corinthians 15:1-28 Psalm 38:1-22 Proverbs 21:28-29

Regular schedule today and tonight with the ordinance of baptism being observed in the 10:30AM and 6:00PM services.

Brian Amonett is in a regular hospital room and is making progress toward recovery.  It will be a long room but he has been blessed in many ways.  Keep praying for Brian and his family.

Lisa and I enjoyed a really nice visit with Mr & Mrs Dendy in Birmingham yesterday.  He is 93 years old and she is 90 years old.  They sit in front of us at the Alabama home football games.  What a delightful couple!

Lisa and I then traveled to Montgomery, Alabama and spent over an hour visiting with Decker & Martha Terry.  Folks, you talk about a blessing!  Decker & Martha are godly people and they are givers beyond description.  Decker gave me seven books and a brand new study Bible.  They give unselfishly to GRACE Ministries and the feeding center.  Martha is basically home bound but she is a great prayer warrior!  I am telling you that Lisa and I stopped by to maybe be a little blessing to them and we left blessed beyond measure and that has nothing to do with the things they gave us.  What they gave us cannot be measured!  Thank God for Decker & Martha Terry!

I pray that you will have a great Sunday with Jesus.  Go to church!

SATURDAY, 8/22/15

Today’s Bible reading - Job 4:1-7:21 1 Corinthians 14:18-40 Psalm 37:30-40 Proverbs 21:27

Posting from Birmingham.  Sorry this entry is late.  Literally have not been online since around 5:15AM or so yesterday morning.

Regular schedule tomorrow morning and evening.  I am praying that we will see the results of revival.

Baptism in the 10:30AM and 6:00PM services.

No updates on those in the hospital or those battling cancer.

Lisa and visited Pat Patterson in Rainbow City, AL yesterday – delightful time.  We were able to stop by and see Pastor Abel Garcia’s church.  Luckily for us, Lynne was there while Pastor Abel was not.  Which one do you think I had rather see?  Nice guess!

We drove to Decatur, AL last night and enjoyed supper with my parents, sister and her husband, niece, great nephew and two babies that I do not have a clue as to whom they belong to.  (Just trying to listen to Miss Vinnie Brewer when it comes to visiting my parents)  We enjoyed ourselves.

Here is the million dollar question – will Soy mow the grass in my absence?

I pray that you will have a great Saturday with Jesus.
