Some thoughts on a sunny morning

The world is somewhat brighter this morning as I woke up to clear skies and now the sun is shining brighter than I remembered it! The drought is over and the gardens {and yards that neeeeed mowing} are drying out so we can resume our spring duties of gardening and outside activities!
I spoke to Billy Weske last Tuesday at his father’s funeral. He is the Assistant Fire Chief in Wichita Falls, TX. He told me that the drought there had been so severe that if a home was 20% or more involved when they arrived they would just control the fire rather than fight it because of lack of water. I knew the drought was bad, but had no idea how bad it was. Billy said that in two weeks of rains every lake, river and pond was brimming to the full! His words were that ‘only God could do that!’ and I concur. Now maybe the ‘extreme weather/climate change’ crowd will quiet down a little!
This week begins countdown to VBS as we have marked June 15-19 for our ‘Master Builder’ theme. During the week we will be instructing our children the Ways of Jesus and giving them opportunity to hone their skills in carpentry. While that is going on, a true Master carpenter, Donnie Lester will be working of remodeling the church building. He has been off to a good start and the real progress should begin this week. I think we will all be surprised at how nice the place will look and how much extra room will be provided. If you haven’t yet given a portion to the building fund, it would be a great time to share in your part of the process of growth of Rehoboth Baptist Church!
This past week in our Sunday school lesson King Joash saw the need to bring God’s house into repair: ‘And it came to pass after this, that Joash was minded to repair the house of the LORD.’ 2 Chronicles 24:4 And after so long a time he asked the question: ‘…Why repair ye not the breaches of the house?…’ 2 Kings 12:7
Then the work began as they employed craftsmen to do the work: ‘But they gave that to the workmen, and repaired therewith the house of the LORD. Moreover they reckoned not with the men, into whose hand they delivered the money to be bestowed on workmen: for they dealt faithfully.’ 2 Kings 12:14 &15
I believe we have godly men who will ‘deal faithfully’ in all their labor. I am excited to see what it will all look like when the project is finished!
Sunday evening we witnessed the baptism of Mitchell Campbell. Mitch was saved at home last week and made his profession of faith Wednesday evening. Mitch is the son of Josh and Stevie Campbell and the Grandson of Mike and Jeanie Ross… Carolyn and my eldest Great grandchild! I cannot tell you the thrill it is to see our Children’s children’s children follow our Savior! Praise The LORD!
