1 Timothy

Good Morning, Dear Friends and Prayer Partners! This is the day that the Lord has made and we will rejoice and be glad in it! These cool nights and warm days are just about perfect! The sun is warm during the day and yet there is a definite coolness to the breeze that reminds us that we are in an autumn zone...My oak trees are certainly testifying to that! Acorns and leaves are falling ,although not as much as they will later on!

On my way to church yesterday morning, I saw a large flock of ibis around Lynch Lake and a mama duck with over a dozen babies were waddling through yards surrounding the lake. It is so amazing how the tiny fuzzy ducklings can hop up curbs and waddle endlessly around with Mama wherever she goes, without getting tired. I have seen them just flop down, though, so they must take rests whenever it is time.

Speaking of church, we listened to the last of the Revelation series Pastor Rick has been preaching.  Very powerful! One of the illustrations he used was quite interesting to me...he used the Johnstown, PA flood and the fact that the people were warned three times about the weakness of the dam, which flooded the whole town. Johnstown was founded by my great , great great and maybe two more, grandfather! I told Pastor Rick this afterwards and he was excited to hear of the connection! God is good!

1 Timothy 6:17-19
Tell those who are rich in this world
not to be proud and not to trust in their
money which all too soon will be gone.
But their trust should be in the living God
who richly gives us all we need for our
enjoyment. Tell them to use their money
to do good. They should be rich in good
works and should give generously to those
in need, always being ready to share with
others whatever God has given them. By doing
this they will be storing up their treasure as
a good foundation for the future  so that they
may take hold of real life...

I always give thanks for you, remembering you in my prayers with
thanksgiving, joy and love!

Love and hugs,
