Hello from Barbara's Entourage

What Season Is This?

Just a week ago, we had 'summer' weather - it was in the nineties. In fact, one day, we had 95 degree weather, and it was very hot! It's been rather unseasonably hot for a long time. We seemed to have, for the most part, jumped right over Spring into summer weather. But, this week, it has been another story.

Monday night, it was like winter, no kidding! Sitting on the side lines of a soccer game, I thought it was winter again! The wind was blowing, my teeth was chattering, and I felt like I had nothing on to stop the cold from coming through, although I had on a coat!

Again, today, sitting at my grandson's soccer game, I felt like it was once again winter. This seems to be the coldest weather for May that we've experienced. We knew it was cool when we left home this morning. But we had no idea that it was going to be so cold and windy. My husband had only short sleeves on, and no coat in the car. I had on a short sleeve and a long sleep shirt, but that was like having on nothing! So, I had to borrow a jacket from my grandson. I was still cold, but nothing like I would have been, had I not had the jacket.

A friend and I were talking about 'knowing the seasons', and he suggested we might be now living in Revelations. We begin one season, only to have it behave like anotherl Let us hold on to God through all the 'seasons', that we may be holding on when He returns!

1 Timothy 6:12 Fight the good fight of faith, lay hold on eternal life, whereunto thou art also called, and hast professed a good profession before many witnesses.

"A little boy forgot his lines in a Sunday School presentation. His mother, sitting in the front row to prompt him, gestured and formed the words silently with her lips, but it didn't help. Her son's memory was blank. Finally, she leaned forward and whispered the cue, "I am the light of the world."

The child beamed and with great feeling and a loud, clear voice said, "My mother is the light of the world!"

A word or two from ......

Maranatha Christian Journal

A movement to display the Ten Commandments at public buildings across Tennessee has suffered a second major blow in weeks. U.S. District Judge Allan Edgar ordered the removal of two displays from court buildings in Chattanooga, saying they establish religion in violation of the First Amendment.

"Lean on Me, for I am Meek and Lowly of Heart"

Meek Under All Circumstances

**Events are messengers of either Divine goodness or justice.

The Good Father, when He sends them, sends at the same time the means by which they may be endured, and perhaps averted.

  • Remedies, in sickness.
  • Love, in trouble.
  • Devotion, in privations.
  • Comfort, in weakness.
  • Tears, in sorrow.

God has created all these; and knowing perhaps that I may fail to find them. He has given commandment to some privileged servants to love, console, soothe, and help me, saying to them,-----

"Inasmuch as ye have done it unto one of the least of these My brethren, ye have done it as unto Me."

Oh! welcome then the friendly voice that in the midst of trouble speaks to me of hope; I will receive with gratitude the care that affection presses upon me.

With thankfulness I accept the time devoted to me, privation borne for my sake; and I will pray "God to bless these kind friends, and ask Him to say to them words such as these: "All that thou has done for Mine, I will repay thee a hundred-fold."

By Charlotte M. Yonge - 1880
