YESTERDAY, "GOODBYE, MY FRIEND"

Although I did go to Sabbath School and Church ~
in the afternoon we came back to the fellowship hall
for a memorial service of our friend, Algeritta.

She will be missed by many
whose lives she touched the last few years.
She was unique, so feisty for her age of almost 90 years old.

She was part of our mid-week bible/prayer study group,
[of which I have missed a lot lately].

We had started prayer sentences, thus many could pray
but Algeritta even tho she tried
never got the hang of sentence prayers.
Hers were very lengthy to say the least,
but she believed every wood of her prayers ~

her walk with the Lord proved her faith.

Although, she had a memory problem
and very set in her ways,
she was a treasure to be loved ~
maybe at times disagreed with,

she thought that she was right ~
most always she was.

We each have a different look at things . . .
some are compatible and some are not
but truth never tells a lie
even in a different way of expressing it.


God blessed us those three years ~
her devotion to the church,
she even wanted to go
back to teaching in our new school,
but decided that she wasn't up to the extra to
study for the State Boards in Colorado
to be able to teach again.

She had a beautiful singing voice,

loved to play the piano I understand.
She loved flowers and God's little creatures
plus; enjoyed teaching others about God.

Yes, she truly will be missed by so many of us ~
her life shines on the lives of her family
who love the Lord our God.

Thank you for the kisses and hugs
that you so willingly gave

to those whom you met.

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.
