hurch Family and Friends,


October 21, 2020


Lulu Roman shared her testimony yesterday. I remember her from the TV show Hee Haw. Junior Samples was my brother and I's favorite, but Lulu and String Bean were right there with him. Lulu shared about being born in a home for unwed mothers. Lulu was moved to an orphan's home and raised there until she was eighteen years old. Lulu had no father, no mother, no sister or brother. She never had a room of her own, never had a dog, or anyone to hold her. With no family or support, Lulu turned to drugs. When she accepted Jesus as her Lord and Savior, she found her family. Lulu found out that God did not dump her, but it was God that found her. She shared several songs. The sincerity of her heart kept coming out, and it was she was so glad to be a part of the family of God. The older I get, the more I am thankful for the family I have enjoyed all my life. Lulu reminded me of the family of God I am a part of now. Most of my family and extended family live in North Alabama. The family of God is all over the place. Have you ever been in a conversation and said, "Hey, I have family there?" When you accept Jesus as your Lord and Savior, you have family everywhere. You have family all over the world. When we are thinking about heaven, we tend to think about our family members that are already there. It will be so good to see them. Do you realize as Christians, we have family all over the world. We will meet all of the family when we get to Heaven. You might have thought, but that is a lot of people and we will not enough time to visit all of our family. Wrong! We will have forever and ever to visit and fellowship with all the family. Thanksgiving and Christmas are difficult for those that don't have family, but if you know Jesus, you have a family so big you can't imagine. Your Christian family is so big you will never meet them all in person on this earth, but you will in Heaven. Lulu has already realized how important the Christian family is. I am thankful for her reminder. Thank you for being a part of my family. I am thankful for the family I have here and for the big family in Heaven. Lulu shared about the forgiveness of Jesus. The Wednesday Bible Study will be the part of the Lord's prayer that tells us to forgive. I hope you will take the time to watch it. It will be on the website and Facebook early today. For me to be early is a little out of character. Thank you for your continued understanding and prayers.
