FRIDAY, 1/24/20

“So, as those who have been chosen of God, holy and beloved, put on a heart of compassion, kindness, humility, gentleness and patience; bearing with one another, and forgiving each other, whoever has a complaint against anyone; just as the Lord forgave you, so also should you. Beyond all these things put on love, which is the perfect bond of unity. Let the peace of Christ rule in your hearts, to which indeed you were called in one body; and be thankful.” Colossians 3:12-15 (NASB)

Happy second birthday to our grandson, Jayden!  He is too young to understand but I hope his day is wonderful!

Bobby Broome will be having knee surgery this morning.  This is the result of a recent fall.  Pray that all goes well.  We need Bobby at one hundred percent before grass cutting time!  He does an excellent job of keeping the church yard mowed.  One of the best I have ever seen.

Lisa and I visited Raymond’s mother shortly before noon yesterday and she did not know if she was going to be discharged from the hospital or not.

The great grandson of one of our church members remains hospitalized as the doctors search for some answers.  Keep praying.

I spoke to Donna Glass yesterday and she said Rileigh was home and doing ok although she is still experiencing some pain.  Keep praying for Rileigh.

The Friendship family will host a service at the Mission of Hope tonight beginning at 7:00PM.  Jeanette will be providing the piano music for the congregational singing and I have invited a guest to sing a couple of specials.  Everyone invited to attend.  Carl Ray Moulds heads up this ministry for the Friendship family and I appreciate his efforts.

I sure did enjoy the rain yesterday afternoon.  I was on the road so I did not get to enjoy it as much as I would have if I had been at home but it was still very good.  We are now settling into a routine where the daily highs will be in the sixties and the nightly lows in the forties with a chance of rain every day.

Basketball (8:00AM) and bus visitation (8:30AM) tomorrow.  Regular scheduled on our campus Sunday morning and evening.  Our deacons will meet at 4:00PM this Sunday.

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

Let the peace of Christ rule in your hearts, to which indeed you were called in one body; and be thankful.” Colossians 3:12-15 (NASB)

Raymond’s mother did well through her procedure yesterday.  They kept her overnight in hopes of sending her home today.  However, that depends on being able to get the necessary medical equipment to her home.  If they cannot do that then she will be in the hospital for several days.  Pray for Mrs. Wilkinson.

One of our students was hospitalized yesterday but I am not at liberty to share the name and such at this point.

We also have a great grandchild of one of our members who is in the hospital but I am not sure about sharing that personal information either.  Pray for these two young people as God knows.

Cecil said Myrtle was not having the best of weeks.  Pray for her.  Want to help with a meal for Sammy & Myrtle?  Sign up online or contact Daphne (533 4595).

Miss Dollie Trout will have a heart cath next Tuesday.  They did a test this past Tuesday and saw something that requires further testing.  Pray for Miss Dollie.

Miss Maxine Dupont is doing much better but will soon be moving to Texas to be close to her son and family.  Pray for Miss Maxine.

Bobby Broome will be having knee surgery tomorrow.  This is a result of a recent fall.  Pray for Bobby.

Rita Broome’s dad, Manolo, has been in Mexico City where they have determined his cancer has returned.  Pray for Manolo & Mildred.

Talked to Dr. Mack Morris yesterday and he is doing much better.  He appreciates the prayers.

Good attendance in our morning service yesterday and fair attendance in our evening service in the auditorium.  I am grateful to those who are faithful to attend.

My heart literally sank late yesterday afternoon as I learned of something I did that was just plain stupid.  Folks, you cannot fix stupid!  However, in no small miracle, God blessed and my stupidity was corrected last night.

The forecasters call for rain in South Mobile County this afternoon.  It is presently a balmy forty five degrees in Grand Bay.

Auburn & Alabama both won their respective basketball games last night – hooray!  I hope Alabama can join Auburn in the Big Dance come March.

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

WEDNESDAY, 1/15/20

“So, as those who have been chosen of God, holy and beloved, put on a heart of compassion, kindness, humility, gentleness and patience; bearing with one another, and forgiving each other, whoever has a complaint against anyone; just as the Lord forgave you, so also should you. Beyond all these things put on love, which is the perfect bond of unity. Let the peace of Christ rule in your hearts, to which indeed you were called in one body; and be thankful.” Colossians 3:12-15 (NASB)

Sorry this is so late but I literally could not get into the church’s website during the night.  Not sure why but I have contacted Al’s people.  I called Soy but he would not answer as he has caller id.

Raymond Wilkinson’s mother will have a surgical procedure this morning.  Pray that all goes well as they are doing a skin graft.

Regular schedule on our campus this morning and evening.

Mission of Hope service this Friday night, 1/24, beginning at 7:00PM in the chapel on the mission’s campus.  Everyone invited.  The music will be good.  The preaching not so much.

I am asking our deacons to plan on meeting this Sunday, 1/26, at 5:00PM.  Brothers, please note this as this will be the February meeting.

Ok, we had our heat on during the time that Soy, Deidra and the girls were with us.  I know this for a certainty as our power bill told me since we have electric heat (somebody has to pay Sam Schjott’s salary).  However, since they have left the heater has remained in the off position.  This morning Lisa was sure to tell me how cold it is in this house.  Define cold.  I checked and it is a nice, toasty sixty degrees which is exactly double what it is outside and there is no wind inside.  Some folks just cannot be satisfied!

For all of you like Lisa, you are going to get your wishes as it will rain all day tomorrow and then we will have temperatures above normal for this time of the year.  That means highs in the sixties and lows in the fifties/forties.  Are you happy?  Do not even complain to me about the bugs this Summer!  Just saying!  LOL!

I would not be good on Jeopardy.  When I read that President Trump was in Davos I had no idea where that city was located.  Do you?  (Aninha Barrett will know but she knows everything so she does not count)  Eddie Albritton and Bob Evans are like me in not having a clue.

Did you watch the proceedings in DC yesterday/last night?  Neither did I.  I will not share my thoughts on the whole situation.

I did see a replay of the brawl at the end of the Kansas State versus Kansas basketball game.  Blow out city and it ends in a brawl.  Really?  Our society is going crazy!

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

The Friendship family is now in possession of a forty five passenger charter bus.  Thanks to Eddie Albritton, Bob Evans, Danny Lewis, Terry Lucky & Clinton Stringfellow for taking time out of their schedules yesterday morning to go inspect the bus, take it on a test drive, et cetera.  Presently, it remains in Pascagoula but plans are to have it on our campus this Sunday.  I am not a vehicle dealer or a mechanic but it appears to be a very, very good bus with very little wear and tear.  Thank you to Marie Brooks for making us aware of this bus.

Raymond Wilkinson’s mother is scheduled to have a surgical procedure tomorrow.  Pray that all goes well.

Bro. Jerry will lead the art class this morning in the Preschool Building.

Bro. Abel and crew returned home around 1:00PM yesterday and seemed to have a really good time at the retreat – even Uncle Jim!

The weather folks say we hit twenty nine degrees in Grand Bay last night and our forecast high for today is forty six degrees – nice!  They are now only forecasting a ninety percent rain chance for Thursday which is down from the one hundred percent forecast earlier.  Translated – either way we are getting wet Thursday!

Regular schedule on our campus tomorrow morning and evening.  After basically two years and three months, we will be moving on from our study in Colossians.  Lord willing, we now move to Paul’s first letter to the church in Thessalonica.

Well, the state of Alabama has been tabbed as one of the “laziest” states in the United States.  The measuring stick was adults engaged in physical activity. “Physical inactivity was defined as adults who said they engaged in no leisure-time physical activities during the past month. The data covers a period from 2015 to 2018.”  Alabama came in at thirty one percent.  Guess which state finished last?  What does all of this mean?  It “may” mean that Alabama has more pastors than any other state – just saying!

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

MONDAY, 1/20/20

“So, as those who have been chosen of God, holy and beloved, put on a heart of compassion, kindness, humility, gentleness and patience; bearing with one another, and forgiving each other, whoever has a complaint against anyone; just as the Lord forgave you, so also should you.

Let the peace of Christ rule in your hearts, to which indeed you were called in one body; and be thankful.” Colossians 3:12-15 (NASB)

Happy 44th birthday to my nephew, Josh Turrentine.  I hope his day is awesome!  (I am so going to try to remember his sister’s birthday in April!).

Bro. Abel, the chaperones and our students are set to return home today at 1:00PM.  Pray for traveling mercies.

The Friendship family is hospital free at the moment.  Richard told me in the service yesterday morning that his mother, Miss Lois, is at home.  Keep praying for Miss Lois.

Raymond’s mother will be having a surgical procedure this Wednesday.  It is a skin graft.  Pray for all to go well.

Keep praying for Myrtle.

On one hand it seems like it was yesterday and on the other hand it seems like an eternity ago when Carla Felps Kyser passed from this life.  Today, marks the third anniversary of her passing from this life and entering Heaven.  She is missed!  Pray for her family today.

If you were in our service last night then you know that we have an opportunity to purchase a travel bus today from a sister church in Pascagoula.  I am asking any of our men who have mechanical inclinations to meet me at that church this morning at 9:00AM.  The church family has given the approval to make the purchase based on what these men decide.  (We just need to make sure that the squirrel that went berserk in the sleepy little town of Pascagoula is not on this bus!).

One of my sources says it is thirty six degrees in Grand Bay right now and the other says it is thirty five degrees so let’s go with thirty five and one half.  Forecast calls for a high of fifty three degrees today, low of twenty nine degrees tonight, high of fifty one degrees tomorrow and a low of thirty one degrees tomorrow night.  Folks, these are heaven like temperatures!  By the way, Thursday is forecast to be rain all day long.  Just FYI.

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

EXCELLENCE!

Karen McGriff messaged me yesterday shortly before noon to let me know that Mac was out of surgery and that all was well.  Thank you for praying and keep praying that Mac recovers quickly.

I do not have an update on Miss Lois Adkinson.  I do ask that you continue to pray for her.

I failed to mention yesterday that Raymond’s mother was going to be discharged later in the day.

Mark Mast sent an e-mail sharing some really great praises and a request for prayer.  If you have social media then I am most certain those same items are posted there.

Lisa and I left late Thursday afternoon and drove to Birmingham.  Yesterday, we visited with Rileigh Glass’ family for a while and checked on Rileigh for a quick moment.  The surgery went well but she is not a happy camper because of all the stuff associated with post surgery.  Keep praying for Rieligh and her family.

We left Birmingham and drove to my parent’s house.  Dad & I were able to visit my Uncle Herschel.  Dad was up to joining Lisa and me in attending a basketball game in which my great nephew, Grayson, was playing.  I took dad home after that game and then went back for the first half of the final game.  I say like one million folks I had not seen in years so that was good.  Lisa and I arrived home around 1:30AM today.

Basketball begins at 8:00AM in our CAB.  Might I mention the CAB with the shining new looking floor courtesy of Steve Hatcher!

Bus visitation begins at 8:30AM in the bus office.

Bro. Abel, the chaperones and our students leave today shortly after noon for the Winter Retreat.  Pray for them.

Regular schedule on our campus tomorrow morning and evening.

Here are the forecast highs/lows for Sunday, Monday & Tuesday in Grand Bay – 55/33; 53/29; 49/31.  Is that awesome or what!  And our Yankee friends think we do not know anything about cold weather – hello!  Yes, that is Grand Bay not Green Bay!  Based on those temperatures it is hard to tell the difference.  Just saying!

The hits just keep coming for LSU football.  They have now had eight underclassmen declare for the NFL draft.  How crazy is that!

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

EXCELLENCE!

Mac McGriff is having surgery on his left thumb today.  Pray that all goes well.

Thank you to the members of the Friendship family who came to the visitation with the family and/or the service for Miss Ruth Whitehurst yesterday.  Pray for Larry, Judy and the rest of the family as they travel to Maben, MS for the committal service today.

Donna Glass kept me updated on Rileigh’s situation yesterday.  The surgery was deemed a success per the surgeon.  Rileigh will remain in the hospital for a few days as she recovers.  Keep praying for Rileigh.

Jerry Whitmore sent me a message yesterday afternoon sharing that the closing on their house went well and they are now ready to head North.  Praise the Lord!  He and Gloria will be leaving in the morning to begin the drive to Virginia.  I thank God for Jerry & Gloria and will certainly miss them but totally understand their situation and I am very happy for them.  Pray for Jerry & Gloria to have traveling mercies.

The CAB floor is being professionally cleaned today.  The process was started yesterday.  I appreciate Steve Hatcher doing this for us.

Regular schedule on our campus this Sunday.  Some of our students will be attending a Winter Retreat in Citronelle.  Pray for them.

Bus visitation and basketball tomorrow.

First Joe Brady and now Dave Aranda.  Wow, the LSU football team has taken a significant hit since winning the championship game this past Monday night.

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

Let the peace of Christ rule in your hearts, to which indeed you were called in one body; and be thankful.” Colossians 3:12-15 (NASB)

Miss Ruth Whitehurst, Larry’s mother, passed from this life early yesterday morning.  The visitation with the family will take place today, 1/16, beginning at 2:00PM and lasting until the 4:00PM service time.  Visitation and service at Serenity Funeral Home in Theodore.  The committal service will take place near Starkville, MS tomorrow.  Pray for Larry, Judy and the family during this time.

Rileigh Glass will have surgery in Birmingham today.  The surgery is expected to last four to six hours.  Pray for all to go well.

Raymond Wilkinson’s mother did well through her surgical procedure yesterday afternoon.  It is possible that she will be discharged from the hospital today.  Pray for Miss Brenda.

Lois Adkinson has been in the hospital for a couple of days.  She is a very private person and really was in hopes of being discharged before anyone found out she was in the hospital.  I visited with her yesterday afternoon and she hopes to be discharged today.

Pastor Mack Morris called me yesterday afternoon to share some details of his recent health issues/hospital stay with me.  God did some miracles in his life and he is blessed.  He is at home now but will be down for some time as he recovers.  Pray for Dr. Mack and his family.

Wow, the LSU football team got hit hard yesterday when seven juniors declared from the NFL draft.  Combine that with the loss of their seniors and Coach Brady and it could make for some tough sledding next season.  Time will tell.

The lows for Grand Bay are forecast to be 36, 28 & 31 Sunday, Monday & Tuesday nights.  High on Tuesday calls for 49.  Yes, yes, yes!  Folks, it is Winter!

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