There is a big notice board in our foyer and we are posting notes on whatever we are thankful for! I am thankful that Pastor Ken is feeling better and his PSA count is very low. I am thankful for our churches’ music team of Pat Beaty and Leta Sage. Also, I am thankful for Sheran Weible who leads the singing at Laurel St. United Methodist Church.
James and Leta Sage’s family is growing, their son Keith and wife are expecting a girl!
The Sohm’s son, Chris, who had surgery on his foot, can take the boot he had to wear off while at home.
Norman Sharp of Dublin has been in the hospital in Fort Worth. I don’t have his room number, but you can send him a card to First United Methodist, P.O. Box 248, Dublin, Tx 76446 and it will be taken to Norman.
Barbara Stevens reported her family has had a rough spot. Her daughter, Donna, was checking on the haunted house that she operates in Vernon, Texas, when her clothes were caught up in the ropes of an elevator. Donna had to be rescued by the local fire dept. She is recuperating from deep scrapes and bruising. Luckily, she had two sisters with her in the building. I think that must be a bona fide haunted house.
Also, Barbara’s grandson, Nick Ware, fell off a ladder. He is getting better too.
Dona and Nick are in our prayers and we praise God they were spared.
Leta Sage brought her hammered dulcimer to church last Sunday and we were treated to the heavenly, ethereal sound it plays.
Laura Leatherwood served as Worship Leader and read the scripture lesson from Mark 10:35-45.
Rev. Ken Lunsford titled his sermon, “Lord I Want to See!” The sermon was based on Jesus meeting a blind beggar named Bartimaeus. When the beggar learned that Jesus was near he began to shout, “Jesus, Son of David, show me mercy!” Jesus said, call the man forward, and then He asked the man what he wanted. The blind man said, “Teacher, I want to see.” Jesus said, “Go, your faith has healed you.” Then at once he could see and became a follower of Jesus.
Jesus is Lord and Savior, it is He that is in control. He is enough for our every need. Why can’t we see that? But there is hope. It happened to Bartimaeus and it can happen to you and me. Cry out as did the blind man: Lord, that I should receive my sight. Amen!
