FRIDAY, 2/26/10

Pastor Travis Northcutt sent me an e-mail last night to share that his grandmother, Miss Merle Phillips, is having the stent placed in her lung this morning if she had a good night last night.  Pray for her during this procedure. 

Steve Morris remains hospitalized but may go home today or tomorrow.  Miss Lucine Bryant’s condition improved but she too remains hospitalized. 

Soy, Spencer, & I are in Dillon, CO this morning.  My friend, David Denault, from D&D Tours in Canton, GA, hooked us up with our equipment rentals and we are grateful.  (Actually, I just mentioned Scott Fontenot’s name)  We skied Keystone yesterday and have plans to ski Vail today before flying home tonight. 

Soy did great yesterday as he moved from the bunny slope to a green.  It only took him two hours to get from the top of that green to the base – he was so excited!  He needed that because he was crying when I got to the hotel room early yesterday morning.  Picture this – Soy sitting on the bed, wearing his ski goggles, watching the Olympics, crying.  Why?  Because Vonn had broken her pinkie!  So, I gave him his “binkie”, told him the story of  “Jack & The Cornstalk” and he drifted off to sleep.   Why me Lord?

I hope to see many of the members of the Friendship family in our services this Sunday.  We are on a regular schedule. 

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

THURSDAY, 2/25/10

This post is coming from 38,000 feet above the earth as I am aboard a Delta flight – more on that later.  However, that Al is one smart dude!  I can’t figure who is smarter – Al or Pastor Jack? 

To the person who sent in the special prayer request for today please know that I am praying for you! 

Miss Lucine Bryant, Morris’ mother, was admitted to the hospital yesterday afternoon with a problem with her heart.  Pray for her.

Steve Morris, Miss Merle Phillips, Miss Kathleen Henderson, & Jayne English all remain hospitalized as far as I know.  Grant Whitehurst, Larry & Judy’s grandson, was in the hosptial but I think he came home yesterday afternoon.  I haven’t heard how Carla’s treatment went yesterday.  Pray for these folks.

 Bro. Louis Reyer received some encouragement regarding his vision yesterday so keep praying for him.

Pastor Lavoy Hart of the New Life Church on Highway 90 in Moss Point has a mass on one of his vocal cords.   The doctor thinks it may be malignant.  Surgery will be performed next Wednesday, 3/3.  Pray for Pastor Lavoy. 

I would normally be in Birmingham this week watching the AHSAA Final Four.  However, Spencer Cole asked me to join him in Colorado for a couple of days skiing.  The price was more than right for the airfare so I decided to use some vacation time and join him.  The downer is that Soy found out about it and bought a ticket too so now I get to spend two days watching him go down the bunny slopes – joy, joy, joy!  (Reminds me of when Michael Mason went skiing with us!)

You don’t have enough time to read all we went through to get to Denver.  It is midnight in Grand Bay and I am still two hours away.  Soy is on his way but on another airline.  (Could I be so blessed that Soy got on the wrong plane and will end up in Denmark?)  Suffice it to say that I have a headache and am tired but once we get to Keystone tomorrow it will all be forgotten!  I like the cold, the mountains, and skiing!  We are planning a group trip next year so interested folks need to contact me to get the details. 

We are supposed to take the red eye flight home tomorrow night which means we will get home early Saturday morning, Lord willing. 

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

P.S. – JD, maybe you could put watching Spencer & me skiing on that list of sporting events you would like to see?

AN ANSWERED PRAYER

The doctors found that my cousin, Brad, did not have a tumor but had an infection instead.  They will treat it with medication.  He was in surgery for about three hours and will spend today & tonight in ICU.  We thank God for this answer to our prayers – it was even more than we expected but isn’t that just like God!  Thanks for praying with us through this situation.

WEDNESDAY, 2/24/10

My first cousin, Brad Turrentine, is having a tumor removed from the front part of his brain this morning.  The surgery is set to begin at 7:00 and, in the doctor’s words, it will take half of the day.  Please join me in praying that the tumor can be removed safely and that it will not be malignant.  I appreciate Pastor Tom Campbell being with Brad & his family today.

Carla Kyser is having another chemo treatment today.  Pray that this treatment will have the desired effect!

Steve Morris was admitted to the hospital yesterday afternoon with a blood clot in one of his ankles.  Miss Merle Phillips is some better.  Miss Kathleen Henderson remains hospitalized.  Pray for these folks.

Pastor Jack Bailey’s mother is not doing well.  She is at home in Athens, Alabama but is not eating and is growing weaker day by day.  Pray for her along with the entire Bailey family. 

We could certainly use a doctor, a nurse, and a dentist  for our GRACE Ministries Pastors’ Conference in October.  We could also use two doctors, two nurses, and dentist for our November GRACE trip.  We have a pharmacist and a pharmacy tech already signed up for the November trip.  Any interested persons should contact me personally. 

News that caught my eye – they found the remains of a shark that is 88.7 million years old.  Found these remains in Kansas.  I have Louisiana land for sale too! 

The USA women’s curling team lost two more matches yesterday.  Do we pay to train our curlers?  The Olympic experience for our curling teams this year is now officially over!  We will not medal!  I’m pretty upset!  We may start our own curling league in hopes of helping the USA in Sochi. 

The USA still leads the medal count by 26 – 23 but those pesky Germans keep chipping away at our lead.

We are on a regular schedule today with the morning service and the evening activities. 

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

TUESDAY, 2/23/10

The funeral service for Dawn Hacker’s maternal grandmother, Miss Edna Dickinson, will take place this afternoon at 2:00PM from the chapel at the Mobile Memorial Gardens Funeral Home with the interment to follow in the adjoining cemetery.  Pray for Dawn’s family. 

Steve Morris came home from the hospital this past Sunday afternoon.  (See yesterday’s comments) Jayne English is going to be moved to a facility in Mobile – not sure when.  Miss Kathleen Henderson went home from the hospital on Sunday and was admitted to the hospital again yesterday.  Miss Merle Phillips is not going to have the stent placed in her lung today.  However, she did make a nice turn for the better yesterday afternoon.  Carla Kyser & Miss Joyce Bosarge continue in their battles against cancer.  My cousin, Brad Turrentine, will have a brain tumor removed tomorrow.  Pray for all of these folks. 

The USA men’s curling team had a tough day yesterday losing two matches (thanks, Mark) to Canada & China.  The USA women’s team was off yesterday but take on China & Switzerland today.  The men are off today – some might say they have been “off” the entire Olympics! 

At any rate, Scott Fontenot, Morris Bryant, Joe David Bailey, & Ross Genzink wanted me to mention that Charlie White & Meryl Davis claimed silver for the USA in the ice dancing competition.  They were a close second to Scott Moir & Tessa Virtue of Canada. 

Speaking of medals, those Germans keep inching upward as the count now stands at 25 – 21 in favor of the USA.  These Olympics will be record setting for the USA team as far as total number of medals won at the games hosted outside of the USA. 

News catching my eye – the lady in Houston, Texas who opened a frozen package of green beans only to find what she thought was a rock.  They now say it was a snake’s head.  The company was contacted and offered her $150.  The company also said that it wasn’t a snake’s head but rather it was a frog’s head!  How could the lady be so confused?  The company claims no liability.  Sad thing for me is that I bought two bags of vegetables from the same company last Friday at Wal Mart. 

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

MONDAY, 2/22/10

We had a very good day in our services yesterday with the highlight being the licensing/ordination service for Ralph Rimmer.  I appreciate the 16 men (7 from 1st Loxley & 10 from Friendship) who joined me in making up the ordination counci.  Thanks to Pastor Bo Rice for brining a charge to Ralph.  Thanks to Sherry & all who helped with the fellowship.  It was all great! 

Steve Morris, Kathleen Henderson, Merle Phillips, & Jayne English all remain hospitalized.  I will give updates tomorrow but do know that Miss Merle is supposed to have a stent placed in one of her lungs tomorrow.  Pray for these folks along with Carla Kyser & Miss Joyce Bosarge. 

Olympic news that caught me eye – Team USA beat Canada 5 -3 in hockey yesterday.  I’m sure Mark Mast is aware of that fact!

We made our move in curling on Friday & Saturday as the men & women won their matches (are they matches or games?).  However, we stumbled a bit yesterday as the women lost two times (Canada & Sweden) and the Brits got the men.  Our men get a chance to redeem themselves today as they take on Canada & China.  We’ll “c” what they are made of! 

The Germans are making a move on the medal count too as the USA leads 24 – 18 with a full week to go.  I think the last time we won the overall medal count in the Winter Olympics was 1932.  I’ll ask Myrtle to be sure since she was there!

Joe David blogged Friday, Saturday, & Sunday – I am so impressed! 

Hope you have a great Monday with Jesus.

FRIDAY, 2/19/10

The funeral service for Mr. Dick Fore, Barbara Kelley’s dad, will take place at 10:00AM today from the chapel at Mobile Memorial Gardens Funeral Home with the committal to follow in MMG.  Pray for Bro. Kerry as he will be singing and also doing the eulogy. 

Lisa & I went to visit with Jayne English yesterday but did not get to see any of the family so I don’t have an update.  I visited with Steve Morris & he is doing great.  Hopes to come home from the hospital no later than tomorrow.  Miss Merle Phillips may have suffered a stroke on Wednesday night.  They did a MRI yesterday but the results weren’t known when I visited with her.  I’ll visit again today.  Pray for these folks.

Miss Kathleen Henderson is back in the hospital with double pneumonia.  Pray for her.  This is Joey Switzer’s grandmother. 

I called last night to get the arrangements for Mr. Shannon Young but did not get an answer at the funeral home.  It dawned (on pun intended) on me this morning that I dialed the number for Buses For Christ – no wonder they didn’t answer!  I’ll find out today!  (Probably was thinking of my next “Souper Super Fellowship” and got distracted!  By the way, I am going to copyright that slogan – T. Garrett, make work of that for me!) 

News that caught my eye – the city of Atlanta, GA is safer today as the police captured an escaped zebra yesterday afternoon.  At least they didn’t have to spend money on a striped suit for him! 

The lawyer for Amy Bishop says she is insane.  Surprised?  (I would make a “lawyer” comment here but I can’t throw T. Garrett, world’s smartest man, under the bus)

Scott Fontenot, Morris Bryant, Joe David Bailey & Ross Genzink wanted me to point out that Evan Lysacek of the USA won the gold medal last night in the free program of the men’s figure skating competition in the Olympics. 

Now to the real Olympic news – those Danes took care of our men’s & women’s curling teams yesterday by identical 7-6 scores!  Conspiracy?  We aren’t doing so well.  (Do we actually spend money training our curlers or is it just a pick up team?)  Is an overweight Dane called a Danish? 

 At any rate, the next three days will see our women’s team take on Russia, Great Britian, Canada, & Sweden while the men’s team takes on France, Sweden, & Great Britian.  I think our men’s team is laying low waiting on our match with Canada on Monday.  Do you believe in miracles? 

Hope to catch a little more basketball at USA today.  The Faith girls play shortly after noon, I think. 

Frienship family, don’t forget the ordination service for Ralph Rimmer this Sunday evening at 6:00PM.  We will have a fellowship afterwards.  Hopefully it will not be a “souper super” one!   

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

THURSDAY, 2/18/10

Steve Morris had knee replacement surgery yesterday morning.  He did well but obviously remains hospitalized. 

The doctors are looking to move Jayne English to a special facility that can accommodate a person on a ventilator.  They still think she can improve but they aren’t sure to what extent but do know the present hospital has done all they can do for her. 

Miss Merle Phillips had the scope procedure done yesterday morning and was waiting to consult with a surgeon.  It appears they may try to put a stent in to help her. 

Mr. Shannon Young passed away Tuesday.  The funeral arrangements are incomplete at this time.  Pray for his family.

You do not need www.ask.com; www.askjeeves.com; or any other ask me site.  All is need is to contact T. Garrett Wright as the guy is an absolute genuis!  Perhaps the world’s smartest man!  I called him out yesterday for making a mistake and he basically took me to the wood shed and proved me wrong!  Did you know there is a huge difference between .com, .org, .net, et cetera?  So, my deepest apologies to T. Garrett for insulting his intelligence! 

The USA men’s curling team lost to Switzerland yesterday by a score of 7-6.  The women lost to Germany by a 6-5 count.  Today sees both teams take on Denmark!  Soy & Brianne think curling is awesome!  Don’t even get me started!

News that caught my eye – an Italian celebrity chef is in hot water after he suggested folks eat cat as he called stewed cat a “succulent dish” while on television.  Here is a quote: “I’ve eaten it myself and it’s a lot better than many other animals,” he told viewers. “Better than chicken, rabbit or pigeon.” He said that for optimum flavour the meat should be “soaked in spring water for three days” before being stewed.  I think I’ll stick with chicken! 

Rumor has it that Bro. Jerry Hovel will be hosting a basketball camp this summer.  Brochures should be available soon! 

Don’t forget the visitation with the Fore family tonight. 

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