How I spent my Memorial Day Weekend.

This weekend we were at Biloxi River Baptist Church in Gulfport, MS. What a wonderful time was had by all. God showed up in a mighty way. What a blessing it is to be born in the USA where we have the freedom to worship the Lord. My heart is still over whelmed just thinking of the services. Sunday night the pastor and his wife sang the song " I Have been Blessed"

We live in a country
The greatest on earth
Our flag for freedom and what is worth
She stands in the harbor, Miss Liberty calls
All have gave some, but some have gave all
So I can be blessed

Who is on the Lord’s side among you?

This past week we were at Campmeeting at Smith Chapel Baptist Church in Colt, Arkansas. We have gone to this meeting for several years and have always come away refreshed and renewed in Spirit. This week was no different. On Tuesday night, the United States flag, the Christian flag and Bible were presented and pledged to. Then all the men and women who served in the military followed as someone carried the United States flag around the room. It was wonderful to see the soldiers walk behind our nation's flag. As the US flag was put back in place, the Christian flag was taken and all the men of God followed behind it. On that particular night there were over 60 preachers at the meeting. As they walked around the room several times, totally encircling the crowd, I felt so humbled to be in their presence. These men who has given their lives to God's service. They have served faithfully in a ministry that can be very rewarding but also very discouraging at times. These men are our heroes, our prayer partners, our encouragers, our shepherds. What an awesome responsibility these men have. Yes, it was good to see such a large group of preachers there, but the work is so great and seems like not a lot of young men are being called. Could it be they are being called but not yielding to God's will in their lives? Being in the ministry is a good thing.

It's washing time.

We just spent the last couple of hours washing and drying clothes in Wynn, Arkansas. The washer will hold up to 6 loads of clothes. It sure did cut down of my time. Also have internet service here. Yah Hoo.

Ball at the rest area

Life on the road can be very tiring driving from one destination to the next. On our way from Lynchburg, Virginia to Valley, Alabama the other day we got very tired of being in the car. So when we saw a rest area sign we stopped for a little bit to try out Caleb's new ball and glove.
