On June 23rd, we bought a gas grill for our home, looking forward to many days of fun with it!

On the 24th, we rejoiced in the reversal of the murderous Roe v. Wade decision of 1973.  Praise the Lord.  While many states will still legalize this terrible killing of the unborn, at least many states will not.  Please pray for the leadership of our country, to either repent of being prochoice or be removed by God and replaced with pro-life leaders!

On the 25th, we told one of our sons goodbye, as he is staying here in Louisville, and met our other son and his family.  We started the l-o-n-g trip to Florida for a week's vacation with them.  We stopped three times for gas, etc., and I gave five tracts to clerks along the freeways.  May the Lord bless them!

On the 26th, we checked into an Airbnb in Cocoa Beach, Florida, very nice house about 15 minute walk from the Atlantic Ocean.  Hot weather all this week!

On the 27th, we all walked to the beach and stayed about three hours.  Grilled tonight for dinner.

On the 28th, we all went to souvenir shop, then to restaurant for dinner.

On the 29th, our son and his wife took their girls to the local zoo, and had a good time seeing all the animals.  Lane and I took our cabana to the beach, and enjoyed the waves for a couple of hours relaxing.  When everyone was back at the house, we heard a SpaceX rocket blast off from Cape Canaveral, but could not see it for the cloud cover.  it sounded like 20 trains blasting off into the sky!

On the 30th, everyone to the beach again.  I gave four tracts to vendors there.

On July 1st, we all ate at Denny's.  I gave five tracts to waitstaff.  We gassed up the two cars, and our son and his family and we split up on the journey to home.  They are taking a slightly different route.  Lane and I drove to Columbus, SC, and got a motel room.  I gave a tract to the clerk.

On the 2nd, we helped two guys jump their battery, and I gave them two tracts, then one of them asked for more to give to friends, and I gave him three more tracts, five in all.  Stopped for gas in Hardeeville, SC, and I gave a tract to the clerk.  Gassed up again at Asheville, NC, and I gave two tracts to fast food clerks.  Stopped for gas in Kentucky and I gave another tract to clerk there.  Got home, and went to dinner with our other son.  I gave tract to clerk there.

On the 3rd, we went to (SS) Community Group and worship service at our church.  Relaxed the rest of the day, recovering from the long trip.  Very glad to be home.

On the 4th, we again relaxed.  So grateful for our home, and its blessings!.

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

Food for Thought and Prayer:

Not what we say about our blessings, but how we use them, is the true measure of our thanksgiving.  —W. T. Purkiser

Accustom yourself continually to make many acts of love, for they enkindle and melt the soul.  —Saint Teresa of Avila

I have been impressed with the urgency of doing.  Knowing is not enough; we must apply.  Being willing is not enough; we must do.  —Leonardo da Vinci

Dollars have never been known to produce character, and character will never be produced by money.  I’ll invest my money in people.  —W. K. Kellogg

It’s kind of fun to do the impossible.  —Walt Disney

Risk comes from not knowing what you are doing.  —Warren Buffett

One evening an old Cherokee told his grandson about a battle that goes on inside people.

He said, “My son, the battle is between two wolves inside us all.”

“One is Evil – It is anger, envy, jealousy, sorrow, regret, greed, arrogance, self-pity, guilt, resentment, inferiority, lies, false pride, superiority, and ego.

“The other is good – It is joy, peace, love, hope, serenity, humility, kindness, benevolence, empathy, generosity, truth, compassion and faith.”

The grandson thought about it for a minute and then asked his grandfather: “Which wolf wins?”

The old Cherokee simply replied, “The one you feed.”

Nothing in this world can take the place of persistence. Talent will not: nothing is more common than unsuccessful men with talent. Genius will not; unrewarded genius is almost a proverb. Education will not: the world is full of educated derelicts. Persistence and determination alone are omnipotent.  --Calvin Coolidge

The best way to pay respect to those who came before us is to learn from them.  Sometimes we feel cheated by life, now’s the chance to cheat at life. This is the closest thing we have to the answers to the test.  So game the system. Learn from the life stories of others and make sure your life story has a happy ending.  --Eric Barker

The pursuit of holiness is always on the path of obedience to the Word, never apart from it.  —Steve Lawson

Everybody is a genius.  But if you judge a fish by its ability to climb a tree, it will live its whole life believing that it is stupid.  —Albert Einstein

Christian leaders...you were trained for a world that is disappearing...the world in front of you is nothing like the world behind you.  —Tod Bolsinger

When a church stops reaching and preaching to those who need to be reconciled to Jesus, it eventually dies and scatters.  Prime example—Crystal Cathedral.  May it not happen to the church where you attend.  —Pete Ramirez

Some years ago in Knoxville, Tennessee I stepped into the hotel coffee shop following a concert and saw Wynton Marsalis sitting with his high school band director, Peter Dombourian. Because I knew Pete well, I thought it a great opportunity to meet this trumpet virtuoso. As I approached the table, Wynton Marsalis got up, walked toward me, and called me by name. I was so surprised and asked him if we had met before. He replied that he was in the Louisiana All State Band in Shreveport when I was the guest conductor.

Marsalis proceeded to list the entire program that we had played, piece by piece, and during our visit quoted many things that I had said. It was after this visit that I began to reflect on the seriousness of every comment in front of an ensemble. Here was a world-class performer who remembered what I had said when he was in high school. It brought home to me that anything I say in front of an honor band had better be correct, especially the criticism, because those students will never forget it. That’s a heavy responsibility.  —W. Francis McBeth in 1997.  How much more what we speak from the pulpit, or in witnessing, etc.  —Richard Graham

I believe the holier a man becomes, the more he mourns over the unholiness which remains in him.  —C. H. Spurgeon

A mistake is simply another way of doing things.  —Katharine Graham

Great products sell themselves.  —Kevin Systrom

It is during the bad times that the skilled manager lays firm foundations for future growth.  —Konosuke Matsushita
