update from an intrusive son in law

Hello to all of Deborah's faithful readers.  I just wanted to update all of you to let you know Deborah is experiencing computer problems and hasn't been able to write lately.  I'll probably make a road trip up to Dawsonville soon and get her taken care of.  Keep checking in! - Jeff

Thoughts On Father's Day

On Father's Day, June 20th, 1999, my four brothers and two sisters and our families traveled in a funeral procession to a cemetery (a resting place) over on Winter's Chapel Road and planted the body of our beloved Daddy right next to our Mother who had gone ahead of him almost 14 years earlier.  On Friday, the 18th, we received the call from the extended care facility informing us that we should come there as soon as possible and I knew and was relieved that Daddy was out of his suffering but I didn't realize that as I saw that hearse from Bill Head Funeral Home back-up to that door that I would cry as I had not cried in almost fourteen years. In a way, I felt like an orphan.

Amazing Grace!

Much of my thoughts this week have been centered on this word that appears numerous times in Scripture, one of our favorites being Eph.2:7-9 "That in the ages to come He might shew the exceeding riches of His grace in His kindness toward us through Christ Jesus. For by grace are ye saved through faith; and that not of yourselves: it is the gift of God: Not of works, lest any man should boast."

Change me, Lord!

As I sat in my little schoolroom, Shiloh, this morning, imagining that Christ Jesus was sitting in the red chair behind the Teacher's desk, (yes, I know that I am pretty simple, actually a little booklet, My Heart, Christ's Home taught me to do that), I spoke with Him about many issues and many people- legitimate concerns for many souls who I know and love. I know loved ones who don't know Him as their Savior and Lord, (Rom. 10:9-10), others who aren't "in-tune" with the closeness of the day approaching (Rom. 13:11)...

Ordinary Days??

On Monday night, Danny and I watched a Hallmark movie,(highly recommended,might I add?) entitled Magic In Ordinary Days and I knew as I watched that the subject of this next blog would be centered around that title and message that the young lady, Olivia, learned during the course of that movie.  My heart was challenged and I pray that yours will be too as we mull over the question- are there really any ordinary days or are we just missing the highlights of every day because we have bought into the "mundane Mondays" theory? If "this is the day which the LORD hath made..." can any day really be ordinary?
