We had a magnificent day at church. A brother of one of our church members had not been to church in 40 years attended today and lots of visitors. Our pastor is off finishing a second book of his memoirs and an ordained member preached on Ezekiel 37.37. Great sermon.
Then... I wasn't feeling well and I was laying down. I checked out in the front yard and my husband was up a 20 ft ladder tying a strap to a tree. I asked if he need help and he said no. Now I know my husband is a wonder but I couldn't imagine him chain sawing a tree, running back to the tractor to tug a while.
So I went and changed clothes. Now I may not be able to chain saw well, but I can drive a tractor. And the wonderful neighbor across the street came over to help and advise, too. I am just glad we have older more experienced people in our lives to aide and advice. We had two trees that were dead and leaning toward the power lines. With winds the way they've been lately, we wanted to get them down before they took lines down. Now we have a generator, but it would sorely upset the people up the way if we didn't take care of our trees. The electric company does take care of line problems but if it happens during a hurricane or storm, it might take days to get power back.
I know this is the LORD's day, but I don't think the LORD would think too much of me leaving my husband at risk hanging by his knuckles from branch. So I would say this is the sheep in the ditch type of thing.
Well, back to church for Bible Study...
Therefore do not let anyone judge you by what you eat or drink, or with regard to a religious festival, a New Moon celebration or a Sabbath day. These are a shadow of the things that were to come; the reality, however, is found in Christ. Colossians 2:16-17
God bless and eat well!
