Joshua 8:1"... 'Do not be afraid; do not be discouraged.'"
We had a wonderful time in worship this morning. The message was good, as we were reminded that even if our children are grown, as ours are, we still have a role in their lives and in the lives of other young people in our church and in our lives.
We also were blessed by the smiles and friendly greetings of our church family. It's in times of difficulty that we try the most to look for our blessings, and our family and friends are near the top of the list. Person after person came up to us and told us they were praying for us. We feel so comforted. Many people have offered to help in any way we need it, and although we haven't had the opportunity to take them up on it yet, we appreciate the concern so much.
Tammy had a very restful afternoon. She slept for about three hours. We are both ready for another week of work after a good relaxing weekend. We both enjoy our jobs and have very supportive friends and co-workers.
Our prayer is that you will be blessed in a special way this week, as you look to the Lord who encourages us to not be afraid or discouraged, much like He encouraged Joshua.
