Thankfulness

Thankfulness is being glad for good things every day;

It’s showing joy by sharing in a kindly, thoughtful way.

It is remembering God gives and cares for every need;   

Thankfulness is loving God in heart and word and deed.

 Encourage Your Pastor

If you like the pastor’s sermons, why not stop and tell him so?

It will give him inspiration – more than you will ever know.

 

If you like the work he’s doing, do not be afraid to say,

It will give him added courage for the burden of the day.

 

Just remember he has trials, just the same as you and I;

Though he can’t please all the people, neither could our Lord on high.

 

If you have a word of kindness – not a lot of flowery praise –

You should let your pastor know it; it will brighten up his days.

News from Brent Fox Family

Hi from Michigan!  For the most part, we have made a smooth transition from Reading to Ionia!  Brent is at school from 7:00 am – 3:30 pm and enjoying his classes (studying aircraft electricity, physics, weight & balance…).  Homeschooling is also going smoothly (most days!), but the children say we don’t go on enough field trips.  I am enjoying the slower pace of life, lots of family time, and exploring a new area.  Thanks SO much for your support.  We feel very blessed!  (And we love to hear from you!)  -Krista Fox

Pray for:

        Jay Fox who is preaching at Lincoln Revival Meetings from Wednesday, October 7, through Sunday, October 11.

        Paul Weiner & Caleb Gehman traveling to Guatemala on October 7 and returning October 23.
