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)
The weather was threatening to hinder the trick or treaters, and at our church a big event was all set up. Fortunately all worked out well, as far as we know. We attended the memorial service of our good neighbor Pastor Bud Lee. The church was filled for the service and what an inspirational service it was! Margie did not have the best night but still plans on going to church this morning. She will rest this afternoon. As I write, the sun is shining. It looks great out there, even though they predict more rain today. We thank you for your prayer support.
