Life rolls along…

We are still living.  All of us.

Chris has been fighting off (or trying to fight off) the flu or something similar.  It’s been two steps forward, one back…  hopefully tomorrow will be recovery mode only!

We are preparing for Bible Study which starts in about 1 hour.  Tonight’s teaching is on John 6:1-27.  We’ve been teaching from the book of John.   We are taking it in small bites at a time…so sometime in 2016 we will be finished.  Maybe.

Funny story:

We have not gotten ANY mail since our address changed.  I don’t think I ever reported that our address changed when we registered the land and ourselves. It’s a long convoluted story that I won’t bore you with, but it changed.  We knew that some people had sent us cards, but we never saw them.  Jamie had been waiting on some stuff, too.

[fdropcap bg=”#333333″ color=”#ffffff”]F[/fdropcap]ill Thou my life,
O Lord my God,
In every part with praise,
That my whole being may proclaim
Thy being and Thy ways.
Not for the lip of praise alone,
Nor e’en the praising heart I ask,
but for a life made up Of praise in every part.

Myers, Ruth; Myers, Warren (2009-02-19). Thirty-One Days of Praise: Enjoying God Anew (31 Days Series) (Kindle Locations 236-241). Random House, Inc.. Kindle Edition.

Come, Thou Fount of ev’ry blessing,
Tune my heart to sing Thy grace;
Streams of mercy, never ceasing,
Call for songs of loudest praise.

Isn’t it funny how we know how faithful, loving, kind, generous, compassionate, strong, just, holy and personal God is and yet, there are times when it just seems praising Him is farthest from our thoughts.  We think of all kinds of other things we should do and other ways we should express our emotions…but praise is the most perfect way.  Make it a praise day.

He who dwells in the shelter of the Most High will abide in
the shadow of the Almighty. I will say to the LORD,
“My refuge and my fortress, My God, in whom I trust!”

PSALM 91: 1– 3

Bible Study Tonight

Tonight there will be several new people with us for Bible study.  Thanks for praying with us about the opportunity. 

We were unable to have it last week because the driver who helps us sold his van.  Glad we are back on!
