On May 20th, I went to my teeth deep cleaning, and gave a tract to the lady who did it (tech?).  Rough, but no pain, PTL.  Went home, updated journal, FB, and website, and worked on publishing prep till lunch.  After lunch, we all mowed front and back lawns, and trimmed.  Looks great.  We are so grateful for the home that the Lord gave us!

On the 21st, Lane and I voted, then I dropped off at our library "Titan," biography on John Rockefeller.  I started it, but it was a disappointment, and I didn't finish it.  No use to waste time and energy on reading something that will not benefit you.  Then Lane and I went to Frankfort, and met her mother and sister at her mother's house.  Her mother selected what she wanted to keep from the house before it is sold.  We took Lane's mother home with us today for the next two/three weeks.  On the way home, we got gas, and I gave two tracts to the clerks.  Then we got lunch, and I gave a tract to the clerk there.  We got home, and I worked on publishing prep.  Lane, her mother, and I sat and enjoyed the peace and quiet of our neighborhood by sitting on the front porch--fun!

On the 22nd, Lane took her mother to get her hair trimmed, and then back home.  I worked on publishing prep.  A pest control salesman came to our front door, we weren't interested in that, but I gave him a gospel tract.  He said he was baptized about six months ago.  Lane and I decided we will drive to Cape Canaveral for our 50th anniversary cruise in August, bc we don't trust the airlines and/or taxis/ubers to get us there at the right times.  Really looking forward to it!

On the 23rd, Lane took her mother to a clinic, and she got meds for the coughs.  I got a text, then a phone call (at my suggestion) from one of my SoCal pastors, and talked with him awhile.  I worked more on publishing prep.

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

Food for Thought and Prayer:

To learn strong faith is to endure great trials.  I have learned my faith by standing firm amid severe testings.  —George Mueller

The Scriptures are the lifeline God throws us in order to ensure he and we stay connected while the rescue is in process.  —J. I. Packer.  What about those believers before the availability of the Scriptures, i.e., before Moses and the first five books of the Bible?  I think the prior and present ‘lifeline’ is the Holy Spirit.  —Richard Graham 

The church has a double responsibility in relation to the world around us.  On the one hand we are to live, serve and witness in the world.  On the other hand we are to avoid becoming contaminated by the world.  So we are neither to seek to preserve our holiness by escaping from the world nor to sacrifice our holiness by conforming to the world.  —John R. W. Stott, The Radical Disciple: Some Neglected Aspects of Our Calling
