What It's All About

I know I've already posted once today, but I couldn't let this one pass. We had a terrific thunderstorm today that cooled things off, and afterward, we went to a church service down the dirt road from where we live. We walked a little piece through the woods to the yard of a lovely older couple, complete with ducks, chickens, dogs, pigs, a cat, and a little boy that wouldn't come near but wanted us to see his slingshot abilities. Our family, along with Dan and Saul, joined the couple, their 19-year-old daughter, and their 12-year-old granddaughter.

A lot of the service was in Guarani, but we sang a few songs, read some scripture, and Dan told them there is a time and a place for everything, and that God has our lives planned out, with a definite plan for each of us. We may not know the plan, but we have to live each day ready to meet the Lord because we don't know when that day will come. The man began to confess some habitual sins, and then he and the daughter both said they wanted to rededicate their lives to the Lord. So right there in their back yard with the livestock looking on, they prayed a repentance prayer and asked for God's strength to live for Him daily. That turned out to be better than the refreshing rain that passed through earlier. Please keep this family
in your prayers. (Don't bother clicking below. This is a short post...)

  1. Praise the Lord! How great is that! Hopefully the little boy with the sling shot abilities wasn't shooting at you! LOL I bet you could win him over with the David & Goliath story! Tell him he's just like David! =) We're praising the Lord with you over the rain & cooling off! I bet it was music to your ears! Have you found anymore fruit trees you can indulge in?? Love y'all!!!
