Church Family and Friends

June 26, 2022. I guess, after two years of not getting covid, when I should have, I may have started to think I would not get it. Charles and I went visiting together, and Charles had it but did not know it. I was on the van trip to Nashville, and several senior adults got it. My tests always came back negative. I went to Cullman several months ago after being exposed a few times during the week, but the test was negative.

I have no clue where I got it. I assume this one is more contagious. I have a feeling my immune system took a hit when I dehydrated. I could have gotten it anywhere.

Your kindness is overwhelming. Thank you for all the kind words on Facebook, (I read them every day – Charles monitors everything and helps me stay on track.) Many of you have had the virus, and your encouragement has been a blessing. I am learning about limitations for the first time since living under my mother and father's roof. It was awkward not being able to go to the auto parts store Saturday. That is usually one of my routine stops. I did get in my truck and drive down to the river. I enjoyed riding down the dusty gravel roads beside the river.

I was the only one riding. It was hot and very dusty, but I had a great time. I tried to fish some and caught zero.

On the way home, Lisa called and said she tested positive for covid. My five days will be up Tuesday at 5 pm. Her five days will be up Thursday afternoon at 5 pm. She is doing fine, and I am over my dehydration stunt. Thank you for your prayers.

We will be praying for Brother Kevin Ward and Brother Charles as they lead worship this morning and Brother Chris and the youth tonight. We will be praying for Miss Mallorie during the children’s moment. We will be praying for Brother Michael Wednesday night.

I have a lot to learn. I like the posters that say, "God is still working on me."

(Isaiah 64:8) But now, O LORD, thou art our father; we are the clay, and thou our potter; and we all are the work of thy hand.

Thomas Edison had a good attitude when he said these words, "I have not failed. I've just found 10,000 ways that won't work."

I used the process of elimination myself at times. The good news is God knows what will work.
