This is the day the Lord hath made....

....we will rejoice and be glad it in.

This wasn't our plan but it was God's plan.  Parker and Nelson were still ill this morning.  So, Kay Lee, Benson, Logan and I, went to Sunday School and church.  Alec joined us for the morning service.  Instead of having a normal service, we sang the hymns and read the story of the crucifixion.  Honestly, it was a good morning at church and I am encouraged from our time there.  However, we want to get back to "normal" if there is such a thing.  So, please pray for wisdom about this illness and for God's healing hand.

Michael let me know that he was helping a friend move this morning and that he wouldn't be in church.  It was good to hear from Him.  Please pray that God will meet the needs in his heart.

I anticipate an attendance increase, Lord willing, next week.  We've cancelled our service this evening.  The message I didn't preach this morning is one that applies to our situation.  Peter and the disciples fished all night with nothing to show for it.  But, then Jesus told them where to fish.  God knows how to build a church.  Please pray for His blessing and guidance. It's His work not ours. He's faithful.  Thanks for praying!
