On June 10th, I updated my journal, FB, and website.  We mowed the lawns.

On the 11th, there were. two surveyors on our street.  I talked with them, and learned that the corner lot two doors west of us has been sold, and the new owners are going to build a house on it.  New neighbors!  I gave them two tracts.

On the 12th, Lane painted the two little girl statues on our front lawn, and the three lamb statues, and a cupped hand statue (she got them from her mother some time ago).  They look great now.  We ate dinner at a local cafe, and I left a tract on the table.

Thank you so much for your prayers, and please continue to lift us up!

Food for Thought and Prayer:

If we focus on making disciples, we don’t really have to be concerned about creating more church gatherings and events because they will occur naturally as a result.  But if we continue with our current focus of creating more and better church gatherings, we very likely will not see more and better disciples made.  —Damian Gerke, In the Way: Church As We Know It Can Be a Discipleship Movement (Again).

The true soldier fights not because he hates what is in front of him, but because he loves what is behind him.  —G. K. Chesterton

God didn’t take the sword out of Goliath’s hand; He put the slingshot in David’s.  —Mark Snowden

Champions keep playing until they get it right.  —Billie Jean King

It is not what you do for your children, but what you have taught them to do for themselves, that will make them successful human beings.  —Ann Landers

The ways of Christians remain a mystery.  We try to find ways to enhance our church events as a means of drawing closer to God, when drawing closer to God would most likely enhance our church events.  —T. Allen Robburts

No man can be severe in his judgment who feels that the mild eyes of Christ are fixed upon him.  —Charles Hodge

To observe an Eagle in flight, is to see a potion of genius.  —William Blake, poet

The really amazing thing is not that life on earth is balanced on a knife-edge, but that the entire universe is balanced on a knife-edge, and would be total chaos if any of the natural ‘constants’ were off even slightly.  —Paul Davies

Abraham Lincoln did not cause the death of so many people from a mere love of slaughter, but only to bring about a state of consent that could not otherwise be secured for the government he had undertaken to administer.  When a government has once reduced its people to a state of consent – that is, of submission to its will – it can put them to a much better use than to kill them; for it can then plunder them, enslave them, and use them as tools for plundering and enslaving others.  —Lysander Spooner, Publisher, Massachusetts Libertarian and Abolitionist

A society that kills a million babies a year for convenience has shut itself down to prevent adults from dying.  And to make matters worse, the people who celebrate the mass slaughter of children are now preaching about the sacred value of human life.  The whole thing is sick.  —Matt Walsh

Whenever you feel unloved ,unimportant, or insecure, remember to whom you belong.  Ephesians 2:19-22.  —unknown

He counts the stars and calls them by name, yet he heals the broken in heart and binds up their wounds.  --C. H. Spurgeon

God is getting us ready through sanctification for the work He will give us to do in the age to come.  The more He can get us to be like Jesus here, the more He can use us here to reach the lost of the world for Him.  The word ‘sanctification’ means ‘being made holy.’  Another way to define it is ‘being made useful to God.  --Richard Graham

I would not give much for all that can be done by sermons if we do not preach Christ by our lives.  --D. L. Moody

“We are what we repeatedly do," said Aristotle.  "Excellence then, is not an act, but a habit.”  So if you have not reached excellence yet, it is time to change your habits.  Consult with God, and select carefully.  —Richard Graham

The Author of the Bible is the Creator of your life.  —Alistair Begg

There are two kinds of people in the world—only two kinds.  Not black or white, rich or poor, but those either dead in sin or dead to sin.  —Leonard Ravenhill
