FRIDAY, 5/10/19

“Thy word have I hid in mine heart, that I might not sin against thee.” (Psalm 119:11)

Bro. Jerry Hovel remains hospitalized but hopefully not for long.  Humanly speaking, a big part of the reason for his turnaround is a huge bag of “nutrients” being given to him intravenously.  One of Bro. Jerry’s friends who is a nurse calls it his “meat and potatoes.”  Not sure what it is because I am not medical but I know the Lord has used it to bring an almost instant type of healing to his body.  Now, he still has a ways to go to get back to normal but he is on the right road.  Praise the Lord.  Keep praying.

This Sunday, 5/12, is going to be a special day in the life of the Friendship family.  First, it will be special because it is Mother’s Day.  We will recognize the mothers present in both of our morning services with special recognition going to the oldest mother in attendance.

Second, our 10:30AM will be special as we will have our annual “parent/child dedication” service.  We have seven children and their parents being dedicated and making commitments.  We are going to do something that we have never done before and this has included the help of my wife and our twins.  What is it?  Come and see.  I can tell you that is “neat” as far as I am concerned.

We need to hear from our Class of 2019 high school graduates who plan to take part in the service at 10:30AM on May 19.  Call the church office or contact Dale Bosarge personally.  The sooner, the better.

I have spent the past few days making my garden a “Santa Claus garden” as it has been hoe, hoe, hoe!  Actually broke my hoe on Tuesday morning but Gina made a trip to Grand Bay Auto Supply and Shawn Felps hooked me up with a new one.  So, I was able to get all rows hoed and the entire garden plowed before the rains came yesterday.  The insects have found my garden so spraying everything will be next.  Pastor Jordan, I have never had a better stand of corn.  God is good!

Charles has done a ton of mowing on the hill the past two days.  He was trying to get ahead of the rain and he did so very nicely.  I will probably get billed for it even though it is his yard/property that he mowed.  Oh well, helped me time wise.

“Sometimes you win, sometimes you lose and sometimes you get rained out!”  The latter of those three happened to JT & the Leopards yesterday.  They are supposed to play that “rubber” game this afternoon but it is not looking promising per the weather forecast.

Lord willing, Lisa and I will leave at some point today and drive to Hartselle.  My siblings and I, along with our spouses, will have lunch tomorrow (Saturday) with our parents for Mother’s Day.  Mama is eighty years old and we need to honor her while we can.  Tomorrow is not promised to any of us.  Lisa and I plan to drive back to Grand Bay tomorrow afternoon.  Lord willing I will be in all three of our worship services this Sunday.  The same remains true for the following Sunday and the four following that.

I was told yesterday that the reason I have been asking folks to not visit Bro. Jerry is because he is on his death bed.  (The person who told me this is very sweet and was kind enough to ask me up front which I appreciate)  Bro. Jerry has been very sick and has often been sick to his stomach i.e. nauseated.  You really do not want folks “watching you or staring at you” during such times – do you?  Bro. Jerry was so sick that he did not feel like “entertaining” folks.  Rumors, you have to love them, right?  It has been well said that “a lie can run round the world before the truth has got its boots on.”  I remember Bro. Robbie Howard saying that many times over.  I have basically never known “they say” to get it right.  Have you?  That is what I thought.

Well, Bobby & the boys destroyed the Dodgers last night – what is up with that!  Yes, I am fan of the Dodgers but I am a fan of Bobby Henley first so congrats to Bobby and the Nationals.

I pray that you will have a great Friday with Jesus.  I am waiting on daybreak so I can mow.  Lisa says that if I do not get the yard mowed then we will not be driving to see my mama!  How tough is that?
