The first picture was Shyanne and Conner, then came Jaren, Katlynn and Trenton. Third picture was all the children, Corey Tyler and DJ. They all did a fine job. Sis. Hellmann did a fine job putting it all together. The last picture was at home here with grandma before church after getting her ready...

Bible Reading

James 4:9 and 14 
    9) Be afflicted, morn and weep: let your laughter be turned to mourning and your joy to heaviness.
  14) Whereas ye know not what shall be on the morrow,  for what is life? It is even a vapor that apparel for a little time and then vanisheth away.
   Isaiah 38:1 )  Set thine house in order; for thou shalt die, and not live.
  Quote from Robb French:  Someone criticised him for always talking serious about eternity and death.
" This man had a good farm and nice home with a large cellar. I wanted to take him by the arm and lead him to the cellar door and say, "Why have you all this wood down here, and all this canned fruit.?" Why winter is coming. We're getting ready for it. Aw, don't think about winter. The grass is green, flowers are blooming, and birds are singing, we ought to think more about this solemn point. It would revolutionize our lives to live more in the light of eternity."
   Friends I want sheaves to lay at my Master's feet. Aren't you glad we are living in this needy world? Arent' you glad we are servants of Jesus Christ? Aren't you glad for the great Commission? Oh, we're not on a dress parade. We're not on a picnic. We're an army fighting in a great battle and this battle is for souls of men. We're working for the Kings of Kings. Win one soul for Jesus Christ and you have won a fortune for time and eternity,.
   Say I'm talking about winning souls for Jesus. I'm talking about coming home at the close of the day, at the end of the journey, with arms full of sheaves to lay at the master's feet. What could be more tragic to die without a sheaf, without a soul?
   Friend's, you had better get things fixed up. You say. "It will cost me to much. " But it will cost you to much not to do it.
  My friends, this is not easy. Sometimes you lose some of  your friends, but you gain some more. I have not chosen to please my worldly-minded relatives, not to please the sophisticated members of the church, but I please God.
   Friends, this matter of being a christian is getting more serious to me every day. How many of us, if we died tonight, could say, " I am clear of the blood of the people of my community, the people who live in the neighborhood where I am. I have done my best." Have you visited in the homes in your neighborhood; have you spoken to the people you work with about their souls?
   If you should forget everything else I have said, remember the text. " Set thine house in order; for thou shalt die, and not live."
  We are in the land of the dying. Let's face that seriously. There is no horror of death to one who is ready to meet God. The sting of death is gone. Friends, what would death mean to you tonight? "

This is so true and it is my hearts desire. We need to live our lives as this could be the last day on earth and to keep Jesus in constant view. We need to see our family in. We need to get them in the ark. The storm is brewing and it is getting so dark. Now is the day of salvation!!!
