Zephaniah 3:17 reminds us that God is musical and He rejoices and sings over you. - -
The LORD your God in the midst of you is mighty; he will save, he will rejoice over you with joy; he will quiet you with his love, he will rejoice over you with singing.

Roofing the Office Supply

Neatly stacked in the corner
of our kitchen sat our extra chairs waiting until they were needed again for
My thoughts went back to when
we obtained these chairs and also twenty nice metal folding chairs.
Years ago we were contacted
by an Office Supply company requesting that we make a deal with them.
They offered chairs, folding tables and
enough office supplies in exchange for a new roof.
Robert told them he would
consider it and get back to them.We
talked it over and then contacted our Pastor.
Antique Wooden Chair
Our church was using some old
fashioned double wooden folding chairs in our fellowship hall and in the Sunday School
rooms, so new single metal folding chairs and new folding tables would be wonderful.
We offered to make a donation to the church
of a certain number of chairs and tables to fill their need and the over flow
of twenty chairs and the stacking chairs would be ours to keep.
We contacted the Office
Supply and agreed to accept their offer.The exchange was a good one.
During the years we have used
our single folding chairs in the yard for a barbecue, loaned them to a new
church just starting up and also our neighbor has benefited when he has a large
gathering over to his place.
The stacking chairs are kept
in our kitchen and are so comfortable and handy when needed.
The Church old wooden chairs were
taken to the dump, but had we known about E-bay they could have been sold as
Sometimes what you don’t know

It is sad to realize that many
children and adults today do not know the real meaning of Christmas and the
story of Jesus birth, his life, death and resurrection.It only takes a few years when the Bible and
Jesus are erased from our schools to create a generation of uninformed persons
I am happy for Child
Evangelism, Release time Christian Education and the Good News clubs that are
making a mark in the lives of many children.Often their parents are reached also.
I have some friends who do
church in the Park when the weather is good.They play music and sing to attract a crowd.
We must use any means we can to reach the
lost, or it will cost them and us dearly.
