FRIDAY, 2/17/17

“As each one has received a special gift, employ it in serving one another as good stewards of the manifold grace of God.” I Peter 4:10

Today’s Bible reading – Leviticus 21-22; Matthew 28

The celebration of life service for Miss Helen Ruth Brinkman will take place this morning beginning at 11:00AM.  It will be preceded by an hour of visitation with the family.  Everything takes place in our church auditorium.  The burial will be in the Grand Bay Cemetery.

Attempted to visit with Ruby Gulley yesterday morning but she was not in her room.  I assume she had already gone to therapy although I got there early.

Visited with John Curl.  He had already been discharged and was simply waiting on the paper work to be finished.  He was happy to be going home.

A memorial service for Vera Bosarge’s brother, Dan Vesper, will take place this morning at 11:00AM from the First United Methodist Church in Athens, Alabama.  Vera has two other siblings who will not be able to attend this service due to their own health concerns. Pray for those siblings and for this service.

I failed to mention in yesterday’s blog that Gary Huhn’s father is back in the hospital and is not doing good physically.  Pray for him.

Lisa Thompson is having some tough days in her battle against cancer.  Pray for her!

Jack Davie remains in a rehab facility but he is not a happy camper.  Brenda T has a lot on her plate.

Pastor Terry Rainey’s knee surgery was a success.  They inserted two plates and some screws to hold the bone in place.  The plan is to get him home early next week. Pray that the insurance company will provide a medical plane as he cannot fly commercially per his doctor.

Regular schedule for the Friendship family on Sunday morning and evening.  In hopes of seeing many folks being faithful!

In my opinion, from a sports perspective, this is a bad time of the year.  I do like basketball but not the NBA.  When the Lakers are not on top then the NBA is just not the same!  College basketball becomes really good once “March Madness” begins but until then it is just so so.  Really nothing to capture one’s attention during this month and heading into March.

Yes, Nanette Brooks Fontenot is mad at me again.  She sent me a Valentine’s Day card that was homemade (is that weird or what!) and it had thirty eight hearts drawn on it (one for each year we have spent V-day (as she called it) “together”).  Wanted us to go to McGowan’s Drive In for a burger, fries and milkshake like we used to do.  (Will someone please tell her that McGowan’s no longer exists?  I mean the building was demolished years ago).  She did like me visiting Pastor Terry on “our” day!  Wow!

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