Sunday Blessings

Last Sunday brought to mind this picture I had once taken. You'll see why further down the post.

Tidying up.  Just as we clean our homes and the spaces around us, we  need to remember to also declutter and tidy up our mind, body and soul. Visually sweeping away all the everyday distractions that tend to wear us down, clearing and focusing our minds on what is really important in our lives. Growing up, when it came to my worries, grandma and mama use to say,  "sweep them off the porch!" ~ Mindy

 Create in me a clean heart, O God, And renew a right spirit within me.  Psalm 51:10

  Good Morning!

 June 19th, 10 am: Fathers Day Worship and Brunch, around the tables in the Fellowship Room.

*As Pastor Donna was unable to attend last week, please refer to the previous post for Sermon and Hymns.

 A Couple of Shares this morning....


  Had to share a little about last Sunday. It all started when I first pulled in to church. A big smile immediately appeared on my face. Jerry and Nancy were out front doing a little hoeing and weed treating. I'm fondly referring to it as....Workin' before Churchin'.  Tidying up and addressing those weeds before heading on in to worship.Gotta love it! As I mentioned earlier, Pastor Donna was under the weather and unable to attend so we lifted her up in prayer and proceeded with the service as best we knew how. Sang our Hymns and praised the Lord. Sharing our thoughts, joys, prayers and concerns. In numbers we are few but the fellowship and support is plentiful.


*********************************************************

 

 

 Also wanted to share this news clip from KMTV 3 about Mulholland Grocery in Malvern, that was lost in a fire last December.  Click HERE to watch.

We can only imagine what a emotional and trying time it as been for owner Tom Mulholland since the loss of his family business. Let us remember in prayer Tom and the town of Malvern as they seek to rebuild this special piece of history within their town.

*********************************************************


 LOOKING AHEAD


Next Sunday, June 19th,  Father's Day Brunch  and "Church Around the Tables."




Please come and join us!

One more thing.....

 

  I would like to take a moment today to say thank you to my friends at Percival Community Church for allowing me to share little pieces of our church and its people and the occasional news or events happening in and around our community. I really do feel blessed to be a part of it all. I also want to say thank you for the kind words spoken last week. Truly heartwarming and sincerely felt.  <3

 Have a good week.  Now grab that broom, sweep those worries off the porch and give them to the Lord!  :)

 Our hearts are broken by the senseless tragedy in Uvalde, Texas.  We mourn the loss of those dear, precious children. Sometimes I feel the words "thoughts and prayers" seem so very inadequate and yet I cannot imagine what it would be like to endure such tragedies without the hope God offers. 

"To forfeit hope is simply not an option. Contending in prayer and standing on the truth of God's Word is our greatest retaliation."  ~ Amy Klutinoty

 No matter what happens in life, no matter what we endure, no matter what we face...bottom line... we have HOPE in the promises of God.

 

 

Praises:  grandchildren expected, graduating, traveling. Kelsie Lou Zach, born 5/24/22, 8lb 6oz, 21 inches. Praise for new carpet on steps in front of church.

 Flag dedication and fellowship at Percival Park, 11:30 am.

  Congratulations to Jan and Mary Zach on the arrival of their new granddaughter, Kelsie Lou,  born May 24, to their son Aaron and wife Makayla!
