“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

T0day’s Bible reading – 1 Chronicles 25-27; John 9:1-23

The visitation with the Melvin Nelson family takes place today from noon until the 2:00PM service time.  Everything at Serenity Funeral Home in Theodore.  Pray for the family.

Tommy Watson remains hospitalized.

Visited ever so briefly with Dave & Becky Sellers late yesterday afternoon.  Not sure if Becky is going to be up to traveling to the wedding but you never know.  She is a very strong person.

Kenny Cooper left yesterday heading to serve as a counselor at the camps hosted by Chick-fil-A.  He will be serving in nine different camps and will return home on August 6.  Pray for Kenny as he continues to follow God’s calling on his life.

We were blessed with very good attendance in all of our Bible studies and classes yesterday morning and evening.  I am very thankful to the Lord for this blessing and appreciate those who are faithful to attend.

Tonight, Lord willing, I will attend a banquet at USA that will recognize Coach Eric Collier and Coach Calvin Crist.  Eric is the head football coach at Theodore High School and is very involved in the Friendship family.  Great guy!

Calvin Crist is Courtney Cavin’s father.  He passed from this life and entered Heaven back in November.  I had the privilege of knowing Calvin for many years and played basketball against many, many years ago.  His father served as pastor of the Friendship family back in the 1950’s.  I did not realize any of this until Chris & Courtney came to Friendship.  I was blessed to have a small part in Calvin’s celebration of life service and will be happy to see him remembered/honored tonight.  (I think tonight could be the night when Courtney will pledge her allegiance to the University of Alabama Crimson Tide which would make Calvin so proud!).

I will be traveling tonight heading to Pell City for the wedding which means I cannot work in the garden and yard tomorrow.  So, today will be juggling ministry work with pulling corn, picking beans and mowing grass.  It is all good!  Soy will give me an assist with the grass and hopefully I can find his twin to do likewise.

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