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

As Katie Tillman always says, “better late than never” so maybe that is true of today’s blog entry.  Why so late?  Zero excuses.

Visited with Raymond Wilkinson just before 9:00AM today and he was about to head out the hospital door.  That is a bit early for a discharge but that particular hospital is slammed and they needed his room.  Raymond said he felt good and the tests they performed yesterday showed no damage.  Praise the Lord!

So, for the immediate time the Friendship family is free of anyone being hospitalized.  We are grateful.

Jim Erwin passed from this life last Friday.  He had been battling cancer.  There will be a visitation with the family this Thursday, 3/14, from 5:00 – 7:00PM at the Guardian Angels Funeral Home on Old Mobile Highway in Pascagoula, Mississippi.  Pray for Jim’s family.  Jim is the nephew of Sandy Felps.

Soccer practice begins today.  (Why did I just write that?  Soccer is not even a sport!)

We were blessed with a good day in our services yesterday.  The predicted rains never came which helped our attendance.  We were on the backend of a week out of school for the public schools and it was time change Sunday but we still had a good attendance especially in our evening service.  Thank you for being faithful!

I would call Wendy Johnston out for not remembering to spring forward but I am not going to do that!  (Folks, it must be tough getting old!  Poor Wendy!  No, poor George!)

I pray that you will have a great late afternoon and evening with Jesus.

SUNDAY, 3/10/19

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

Raymond Wilkinson suffered a heart attack yesterday just before noon.  He was taken by ambulance to a hospital where they immediately did a cath, found two blockages and placed two stents.  Thank God for His watchcare over Raymond!

Raymond is the picture of health.  No weight issues.  Does not drink or smoke and is not a glutton.  So why would he have a heart attack?  No comment!  LOL!

Did you Spring up before going to bed last night?  I actually moved our house clocks and my watch up one hour yesterday morning and lived by that time all day.  Helped me adjust tremendously.

After getting home from visiting with Raymond yesterday afternoon I watched two really good basketball games – Duke vs UNC and Michigan vs MSU.  Lots of energy in both venues.  Good games.  If Alabama makes the tourney then something is wrong!

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

SATURDAY, 3/9/19

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

Spring forward tonight!  Remember to move your time pieces forward (up) one hour before going to bed!  So, if you go to bed at 10:00PM then you will need to move your time pieces up to 11:00PM.

Pass the word!

FRIDAY, 3/8/19

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

All is quiet on the home front and for that we are thankful.

One major thing taking place this weekend is that we will observe time change on Saturday night.  This is my least favorite Sunday of the year as we lose an hour on Saturday night.  So, “spring up” by moving your time pieces up one hour before going to bed on Saturday night.  It is most important to remember this!  Pass the word!

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

THURSDAY, 3/7/19

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

Anna Carol Bosarge saw two medical professionals yesterday.  They will not be certain if the previous procedure worked earlier until at least three months have passed.  They are looking into the possibility of using another medicine as well.  Continue to pray for Anna Carol.

As far as I know, the gentleman living in his last days per the medical personnel continues to be in the hospital this morning.  Keep praying.

We had a really good attendance in our morning service yesterday and a better than I expected attendance in last night’s service.  I am thankful.  A test was given in the auditorium during both services and everyone failed!

Well, our “polar vortex” is over as the low for tonight is predicted at fifty four degrees and tomorrow’s high is predicted to be seventy three degrees.  It appears that we are about to have a couple of beautiful days as far as the weather is concerned.

We are on a regular schedule this Sunday morning and evening.  Plans call for us to baptize as a part of our Sunday evening service.  Finance Committee will meet at 5:00PM.

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

WEDNESDAY, 3/6/19

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

Anna Carol Bosarge will see the doctor today.  Pray for Anna Carol.

Charles was discharged from the hospital yesterday afternoon.  He is doing well.  Thank you to all who prayed and checked on him.

Visited with the gentleman who only has a few days to live per the medical folks.  No change.  I am heading to the hospital this morning to check on him.

The visitation and service for Anna Suthoff’s maternal grandmother will take place this afternoon in Pell City.  Pray for the family as they walk through this valley.

Bro. Andy Hamil sent me an update on the pastor’s wife in the Tuscaloosa area who has been battling a brain tumor for the past five years.  She is seemingly in her last days.  Pray for her, her husband and the family.

I find myself thinking about the families of those twenty three persons who lost their earthly lives in the tornadoes this past Sunday afternoon.  We need to continue to pray for them.

I have heard of a pretty good number of folks who are battling sicknesses which include the flu.  Not good.  Pray for them.

Regular schedule this morning and tonight for the Friendship family.

Our two mission trips in January and February of 2020 are filled to capacity and beyond.  Still have spaces on our December 2019 trip if anyone is interested.

I have enjoyed the cooler days and nights this week.  Probably the last cold we will experience this Winter.  I am grateful for these few days of refreshment.

Personally, I do not think the Alabama basketball team should be invited to the big dance.  It is painful watching them play – get a big lead and then squander it away in the second half.  Oh for the days of Newton and Sanderson!

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

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

Charles did well through his surgery.  It appears that he will be discharged from the hospital today.

We have had a gentleman on our prayer list for several months as Bro. Jerry Hovel had shared of this man’s battle with cancer.  It was not until yesterday afternoon that I realized that I have know this man for about thirty eight years.  I went and visited with his family last night.  They were in the process of moving him from intensive care to a room where he will be under hospice care.  He is only forty nine years old.  Pray for him and his family.

The service for James Henry Doole is scheduled to begin at 11:00AM today from the chapel of Serenity Funeral Home.  If you are helping with the meal then please have the food at the church no later than 10:30AM.  Please label any dishes that need to be returned as the food will taken to a residence for the meal.

Yes, the church office is open regular hours today (8:00AM until 12:00PM; 1:00PM until 4:30PM).

Regular schedule tomorrow morning and evening on our campus.

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

MONDAY, 3/4/19

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

The Lord blessed us with a good day in our services yesterday.  Really good attendance in our early service.  Second service was down a bit but that was expected because of the public schools being out this week.  The evening attendance was good in spite of the schools closing and the rain that came in the afternoon.  I am thankful for a people who are faithful.

Lisa’s dad, Charles Clark, is having knee replacement surgery this morning.  They just left so I am going over to find his Last Will & Testament and put myself in it!

Pray for Anna Carol Bosarge this week!  It was good to see her in our early service yesterday.  The lady is a trooper!

Pray for Catherine Leach and Dollie Trout.  Both are in a rehab facility.

Sarah Thornton’s sister, Viola, is also in a local rehab facility so pray for her too.

Vinnie Brewer’s sister, Donna, remains hospitalized in Mississippi.  Pray for her.

The visitation with the James Doole family takes place tonight from 5:00 – 7:00PM at Serenity.  Service tomorrow at 11:00AM also from Serenity.

Thank you to each person who is helping feed the Doole family.  Food needs to be in our fellowship hall no later than 10:30AM tomorrow.  Special thanks to Tina Wilkinson for coordinating this ministry.

Pray for the families in Lee County, Alabama.  Over twenty deaths and widespread destruction because of the tornadoes yesterday afternoon.

Anna Arrington Suthoff’s grandmother passed away over the weekend.  Pray for Anna and her family during this time.

Loving these cooler temperatures!  Calling for thirty three tonight and thirty tomorrow night.  I hope they are wrong!  Hope they go to twenty three and twenty respectively!  Just saying!  (We will not reach the predicted lows in Grand Bay – never do!)

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

FRIDAY, 3/1/19

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

Miss Dollie was moved to a rehab facility yesterday.  I do not think she is thrilled about not going home but it is necessary for her at this time.  Keep praying for Miss Dollie.

Yard sale in the CAB today from 7:00AM until 5:00PM.  I do not know if they are selling anything but I do there were like one million cars in the parking lot yesterday.

Had meeting with Carl Ray Moulds yesterday regarding security.  We now have a camera installed in each room in the preschool building minus one.  That camera will be put in place soon.  Good news to me.

Regular schedule for the Friendship family this Sunday morning and evening.

Deacons meet at 5:00PM this Sunday.

Looks like we are going to be dodging rain showers over the next two days and then will get wet on Sunday.  The Lord knows.  I just hope they are correct on the thirty degrees readings for a couple of nights next week!

I pray that you will have a great Friday with Jesus.  Enjoy March 2019 because it will be gone tomorrow!

THURSDAY, 2/28/19

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

And in a few short hours February 2019 will be history!  Wow, that was certainly fast!  The highlight of the month for me personally was the groundbreaking on 2/1 for the new school in Guatemala.  What a huge blessing as the workers are busily moving along toward the 12/31/19 completion deadline.

The annual yard sale begins at 7:00AM today, repeats the process tomorrow, and then again on Saturday morning.  Auction begins at 5:00PM on Saturday.

Visited Miss Dollie early yesterday morning.  She still was not feeling well.  Not sure what the next move will be in her care.

Anna Carol Bosarge continues to need our prayer support as her pain is intense.  Please pray for Anna Carol.

Good day in our services yesterday morning and evening.  I am told that our students had a good Bible study with Dale.  Dale will soon be meeting with those actively involved in our student ministry to make some plans going forward.

It was great seeing Bubba Baggett in our service last night.  Welcome home Bubba.  Good bye Bubba.  (He leaves again in two weeks)

Does Katie Tillman still attend Friendship?  I “thought” I saw her this past Sunday morning in one of our services but she did not come speak to me so that could not have been her.  I have not seen her on a Wednesday night since like 1993.  Anyone have any information?  (It seems that Bubba attends more than Katie.  Just saying!)

The good news for Katie and others is that folks can give online through our website.  Simple process.

I am not a big buffet person.  However, if I am ever at a buffet then you can have the crab legs!  Dr. Rex, what is going on in Huntsville?

Bill Kendrick’s fellow fans were not happy campers last night following their game against UT.  Bill, can you not control your fanbase?

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