I am just a very happy person this Monday morning. After such a wonderful weekend, seems I look forward to each rewarding day as I get a day older. I truly do have so much to be thankful for.
We had a beautiful day for Homecoming on Sunday, a great crowd, beautiful music and a great message.
After listening to the Sonrise Trio, enjoyed by all, who can give you a message from song, Butch took his message from a favorite passage of scripture, Psalm 85:1-7. His title for this message: “A prayer for revival.”
And that’s what we’ve been praying for, this nation is in great need for a great revival. Verse 6 says, “Wilt thou not revive us again?” Yes, Lord, make us alive again.
After the morning worship we all enjoyed a delicious lunch in our newly air conditioned Lou Comans Building.
Our ladies truly outdid themselves with the food, and with such a crowd, I don’t think we ran out of anything but the barbecue chicken. Thanks to all that made this day into such a day to remember.
And thank you to all the visitors that came to enjoy our services. I know you received a blessing. Revival began Monday and will continue through Friday night at 7:30. It was announced that Earl Partain would be here, but, due to a death, Ralph Baker will be preaching. Monday night we are proud to announce that The New Apostles will do our special music. Each night someone different. On Wednesday night our own choir, with specials, will sing.
Again, I do ask that you sincerely remember our sick. O.L. Jordan is home now after having a heart attack. Patsy Greene is in the hospital, Marion Beacham is not doing well, as well as several more. We pray for quick recovery.
We enjoyed our No. 2 grandson, Curtis, and Roxana Arwood from Charlotte, N.C., this weekend. I really enjoyed the delicious dinner at the Silver Moon Restaurant we had to celebrate my birthday. Thank you so much.
Alice and Sandy, with seven of the grandchildren, had a wonderful time on their trip to Tennessee and North Carolina. They returned tired but full of memories they can share a lifetime. Last week Tammy Waddell and the children met up with Joey down Jekyll, Saint Simons way. I’m not really sure where all they toured but they had a good time.
About our gospel singing announcements, Bobby Allen will be with Clarke Kesler at Nicholson on Thursday night.
The Sounds of Victory trio will be with Jan and Alan down at the Oakley Gospel Barn on Harmony Road Saturday night.
What a time Shondia Evans, Heather, Ethan and Trey had this weekend. They packed up on Friday night and headed over to West Point Lake to spend the weekend with Dawn Walker.
I can hardly believe the month of July is about gone. Most of the school systems will begin “school days” soon.
August is here and with it comes a birthday for Ginny Bell on the 1, Ruby Guinn on he 4, and happy anniversary to Lisa and William Stewart on the 7. I wish my dear friend Ruth Easters a birthday wish on the 7.
“Fear will always knock on your door. Just don’t invite it in for dinner. And for heaven’s sake, don’t offer it a bed for the night.” Friends, think on this. We ARE living in some fearful times. We cannot let it in to invade our homes and our lives. We need to bring that praying power back. Include God in your daily life.
So until next week, may the Lord bless you real good.
