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! So, we have temps in the seventies and lots of sun and a good start to the day.
Knowing I had a busy morning scheduled, I looked at my clock before rolling out of bed, and went into the bathroom, washed my face, brushed my teeth and started making the bed, then happened to look at the clock again, and it was only 5:35!! I thought it said 6:35! Well, I unmade the bed, turned out the light, and crawled back in bed for another twenty winks!
I am expecting my yard man, then pest control man, and have a doctor's appointment at 11:15., so it is a busy morning!
We had a good enthusiastic sermon about vision yesterday with Pastor Mike leading us, after some good singing and worship music. Then came the surprising, (to me, at least,) announcement from Pastor Jim that he and Laurie are leaving in December for cold Minn., having been called some time ago to be co-pastor of a small church of 21 people with about 100 some attending on Sundays. They (the new church) have decided not to own a building, but raised enough for a salary for Pastor Jim in just two weeks! They certainly have a challenge waiting for them! I wish them well!
So--first we had three pastors, shortly we will have none! But, I have seen many changes through the years and FCC will survive and so will we! God will provide and He is good!!
From the Promise Bible NLT:
The Lord says, "I will rescue those who love me.
I will protect those who trust in my name.
When they call on me, I will answer.
I will be with them in trouble.
I will rescue them and honor them.
I will satisfy them with a long life and give
them my salvation.
I always give thanks for you, remembering you in my prayers with
thanksgiving, joy and love.
Love and hugs,
