Therefore we also, since we are surrounded by so great a cloud of witnesses, let us lay aside every weight, and the sin which so easily ensnares us, and let us run with endurance the race that is set before us...
The heroes of faith we read in God's Word give courage to us today,
Their dedicated lives and devotion to the Lord, are lessons on display.
In this life we are in a race, and to succeed there are things we must do,
All things that impede our run, should be cast aside as His will we pursue.
We need God's help to endure, and be faithful in this race we are in,
And if we neglect to press on, we know that for us it's because of sin.(RP)
Mondays are always the reminder to get busy, because there is much to do this week. We are glad we can still do some things, and especially service for the Lord. Yesterday was a blessing to be in church and hear of the positive reports concerning the Friday night event at our church. Only in eternity will we ever really know how much God worked in lives through the ministry of our church. Today I am baking stuffed peppers. Margie has already prepared them for "filling". Now I must get the ingredients cooked and get them in the oven. We will enjoy a couple of them for lunch today. We hope also to distribute some of them to persons who can use them. Thanks so much for praying.
