Sandcreek Baptist Church
Well, I was right. There’s nothing like the food at a church pitch-in along with cook-out hamburgers and hot dogs.
As usual, I ate too much but just had to have some of that blackberry dessert. We had a good day and as usual the fellowship was great. Hope you were there with us. If not, maybe next time?
A reminder about those brown paper bags and brown wrapping paper to save for our VBS decorating ladies – also any scraps or sheets of tissue paper. I have an idea that will be transformed into flowers.
There is just one more week to search those closets, under the bed, and any other hiding places for those GOOD, CLEAN, unworn shoes to donate to the box the youth are hoping to fill and then give to some other needy people. Bring what shoes you find, this Sunday, and add them to the box in the hallway. Then everyone will be blessed and feel good about being a part of a job well done.
Hope you had a wonderful, safe 4th of July. I’m reading a book called “Under God.” It starts with George Washington and has short stories about other men who played a big part in the founding of our country. They were all Christians who believed in God and put Him first in each and every decision they made. I don’t know if it’s available anywhere but I wish it was required reading for our elected men and women in Washington as well as those in our state governments. We all need to be reminded of how our country was formed and what those men did to secure the future of this great country. Yes, I’m proud to be an American, but when I read and/or hear the news today it seems we’ve gotten so far away from those original beliefs and standards. Maybe we all need to go back and study the history of this country to be reminded of just what WE stand for.
