I pray that your Sabbath Day was as wonderful as the creator of the Sabbath is! I took a flu shot this week and not sure that I didn't get a mini flu in its stead. Anyway, am getting a wee bit better. I did make it out to Sabbath School and Church as the conference president was our speaker and I really do like Elder Jim Brawr. He is funny, and a wonderful speaker, plus he never forgets people I do not think. I know that I am thankful for him, as several years back he told me something that has stuck with me. I hadn't sung solo in church in years, and I had said that I felt that God had taken my voice because of my thinking that I had to be totally perfect or I'd beat myself over the head so to speak if I goofed.

He told me that God isn't like that, He loves you, and wants you to sing but for His Glory not yours. Well, a year later guess what I was back singing after all those years of not singing. Oh not a whole lot of times, but several for a while. I have been on the music committee for several years now and most of the time I try to have the young people do the special music. I went several years again not singing solo's and then in July I couldn't find someone so went back to signing again. Want to continue, but right now have this cold, sore throat, and sinus tonight, and the hearing hasn't improved a whole lot, so keep praying about this will you.
Thank Him for all things, even colds etc.....
In Love w/HIm.

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.
