On Thursday evening or late afternoon, I got a call on my phone that was from my California cousin, Evelyn and husband Bob from Loma Linda + as they say, as they are both retired and travel much of the year, but go back to California to spend the winter as their kids live there. They said that they had a wee time, and would come through Loveland on their way west, so on Sabbath eve I got a call that they were parked and would meet me at church in the morning.

They were already there when Bob C and I got there. [He picks up this old lady [me] just don't tell anyone that I called myself {old} as that is a word that I do not want to think of myself as old.] It was so good to see Evelyn and Bob and after church we went to their travel trailer and spent the rest of the day. Much of it just jawing and looking at pictures of the reunion's in Wisconsin the last few years since I had seen them, and also family pictures and some of their other travels. [he has a laptop] so it was really nice to watch as he flipped through their thousands of pictures to find what I wanted to see. Couldn't see them all, didn't have that much time or O2 to stay that long. It all in all was a wonderful day.

Back to Sabbath School, oh my what a wonderful program that Ben, Andi and [Mom] Miki put on. It was awesome, [they are to be my special for the 2nd of August. It love to use the kids, [I am on the music committee] so that is why I had asked Ben ~ the kids are so good to pick up and do these specials, and so talented]. Ben did a skit as John the Baptist yesterday before they sang. Boy was it good, he is just so talented, as are his sisters and mom. We are so blessed at the church to have kids that are willing to do this, even if we are very small group we are an active vibrant group and I truly am blessed to be a part of this Family of God . . .

Blessings abound in our lives as we serve the Lord, but not without trials along the way to help us grow. They are a testing ground for us. God didn't tell us that we would have clear sailing without foul weather out there, but He like in the firy furnace didn't save the children from the furnace, He walked around in the furnace with them.

When one comes to the Lord, one needs to count the cost of service unto the Lord if we are to be His children and the sheep of His fold. How many times in our lives as we fall and get up again, then slip and fall again, God is there to pick us up and help us to grow again. Sometimes, we feel that we just cannot go anymore, but He tells us by His Holy Spirit, that He wants us to be ready for that day, when He takes us HOME.

If we are not happy in the Lord here on this earth, we won't be or couldn't be happy in Heaven. . . we just would not be put in that position. . . as Jesus wants us truly happy in Him. He is a loving God, not as ole satan is, who wants us to turn away from GOD. Oh that each of us would count the cost and truly give our all unto Him, He gave His all for us.

"Our God is an awesome God."

3 Bullets

There once was a man who had nothing for his family to eat. He had an old rifle and three bullets.

So, he decided that he would go out hunting and kill some wild game for dinner.

As he went down the road, he saw a rabbit. He shot at the rabbit and missed it. The rabbit ran away.

Then he saw a squirrel and fired a shot at the squirrel, but missed it. The squirrel disappeared into a hole in a cottonwood treel.

As he went further, he saw a large, wild "Tom" turkey in the tree, but he had only one bullet remaining.

A voice spoke to him and said, "Pray first, aim high, and stay focused."

However, at the same time he saw a deer which was a better kill.

He brought the gun down and aimed at the deer. But, then he saw a rattlesnake between his legs, about to bite him, so he naturally brought the gun down further to shoot the rattlesnake.

Still, the voice said again to him, "I said, 'Pray, Aim high, and Stay focused."

So, the man decided to listen to God's voice.

He prayed, then aimed the gun high up in the tree, and shot the wild turkey.

The bullet bounced off the turkey and killed the deer.

The handle fell off the gun, hit the snake in the head, and killed it. And, when the gun had gone off, it knocked him into a pond.

When he stood up to look around, he had fish in all his pockets, a dead deer, and a turkey for his family to eat.

The snake, (Satan), was dead simply because the man listened to God.

Moral of the story:
Pray first before you do anything, aim and shoot high in your goals, and stay focused on God.
