Hello from Barbara's Entourage!

Time marches on! Once again, we have arrived at the Memorial Day weekend, when everyone is thinking about the loved ones that never made it home. Whether it was the Civil War, World War I or II, the Korean War, or the Vietnam war, all the loved ones were special, for they fought for our right to live in freedom.

Another SON gave His life for our freedom, that we might live eternally. He withstood the enemy during the battle of life on earth, but won the fight in victory for our souls, at the cross. He hung there for us, in our place, nailing all our sins to the cross. Just as the loved ones that lost their lives in battle will be remembered, so should we remember the SON of God, our Saviour, who gave His life freely for the 'cause'...... life eternal.


Hebrews 12:2 Looking unto Jesus the author and finisher of our faith; who for the joy that was set before him endured the cross, despising the shame, and is set down at the right hand of the throne of God.

Joy, Humor, and Faith on the net!

A Sunday School teacher decided to have her young class memorize one of the most quoted passages in the Bible... Psalm 23. She gave the youngsters a month to learn the verse. Little Bobby was excited about the task, but he just couldn't remember the Psalm. After much practice, he could barely get past the first line. On the day that the kids were scheduled to recite Psalm 23 in front of the congregation, Bobby was so nervous. When it was his turn, he stepped up to the microphone and said proudly, "The Lord is my shepherd...and that's all I need to know!"

A country preacher was walking the back roads near his church. He became thirsty so decided to stop at a little cottage and ask for something to drink. The lady of the house invited him in and in addition to something to drink, she served him a bowl of soup by the fire. There was a small pig running around the kitchen. The pig was constantly running up to the visitor and giving him a great deal of attention. The visiting pastor commented that he had never seen a pig this friendly.

The housewife replied: "Ah, he's not that friendly. That's his bowl you're using."

A word or two from...

Christianity Today Magazine
May 18, 1998
By Barbara Brown Taylor

(MCNS) -- On Sunday mornings, a great division takes place among American people as some go to church and most stay home. Those who stay home are not taking a week off; church is simply not part of their lives.

Read the whole article "The Day We Were Left Behind."



<((< -- <((< -- <((< -- <((< -- <((< -- <((<



1. Great tenderness of Conscience, secured by constant, regular, and earnest confession to God, a hatred of all sin, imperfection, infidelity, by calmly but resolutely fleeing every occasion of it.

2. Great purity of heart, by detachment from all earthly things,--wealth, luxuries, fame, kindred, friends, tastes, even life itself . . . not that we need fail in love to our kindred and friends, but we must only let the thought of them abide in the heart as united to the love and thought of God.

3. Great purity of mind, carefully excluding from it all useless, distracting thoughts as to past, present, or future; all preoccupation over some pet employment; all desire to be known, and thought well of.

4. Great purity of action, only undertaking what lies in the path of duty; controlling natural eagerness and activity; acting soberly, with the help of the HOLY SPIRIT, the thought that by our deeds we glorify God; pausing for a moment, when passing from one occupation to another, in order to direct aright the intention; and taking care to be always occupied in what is useful and beneficial.
