What a great way to celebrate Fathers day. Being with people you love and having them loving you back. That is what it is like at BBT. I hope you feel the same way. Larry brought an excellent sermon on how our Heavenly Father feels about us. I am always amazed at how much God loves us! Joel and Dana will not be able to be here on Sunday this next week so you will just have to put up with me again.
I was so moved when Linda played the eulogy her brother gave at their Dads funeral, I decided to speak this week about what will people be saying about us after we have gone and how do we feel about ourselves as we look back at our life. The scripture verse this week is 2 Timothy 4: 6-8. This is the story of how Paul saw himself as he life was coming to an end. This is his reflection on his life. One day all of will have to face death, it is not something we can avoid. As a younger person we rarely think about what is waiting for us on the other side but the older we get we start to look back and we evaluate what we did over a lifetime. We have all made mistakes and we would probably all what to go back in time and do somethings differently. Understand that the mistakes we have made have help to develop who we are. I hope this week you will spend just a little bit of time and reflect back on your life. What would you change? What plans do you have for the future? We have all been blessed and I hope we feel like we have been a blessing as well.
Pray for those that we mention in the prayer request last Sunday and keep believing God is going to do a great work in this body of believers. Pris is away this week on vacation and I miss her but I am so glad she got the chance to take this time to spend relaxing. I am sure she will have many stories to tell us when she gets back. I am so excited about Sunday July 1 when we have church at the lake and the picnic to follow. I hope you are making plans to be there! Keep doing good things in the name of Jesus and I will see you on Sunday!
