Marvellous Monday

Well the weekend is over, and it is back to the old grind, well for us retired folks it is a day of rest, lol for all you working folks it is back to the job, but  in these times I am sure you are praising God you have a job to go to. We had a wonderful day at church yesterday, My dear husband preached and we had many singing and just a good time.
Any of you that do bulletins or church New Letters will appreciate this following article I have printed for your here, it is the mistakes that some make in their church bulletins, laugh along with me:
The following sentences actually appeared in church bulletins, or were announced in church services:
1. The Fasting and Prayer Conference includes meals.
2. Ladies, don't forget the rummage sale. It's a chance to get rid of those things not worth keeping around the house. Bring your husbands.
3. Miss Charlene Mason sang 'I will not pass this way again,' giving obvious pleasure to the congregation.
4. For those of you who have children and don't know it, we have a nursery downstairs.
5. Irving Benson and Jessie Carter were married on October 24 in the church. So ends a friendship that began in their school days.
6. At the evening service tonight, the sermon topic will be 'What Is Hell?' Come early and listen to our choir practice .
7. Eight new choir robes are currently needed due to the addition of several new members and to the deterioration of some older ones.
8. Please place your donation in the envelope along with the deceased person you want remembered.
9. Low Self Esteem Support Group will meet Thursday at 7 PM. Please use the back door.
10.The eighth-graders will be presenting Shakespeare's Hamlet in the Church basement Friday at 7 PM. The congregation is invited to attend this tragedy.
11.Weight Watchers will meet at 7 PM at the First Baptist Church Please use large double door at the side entrance.
12.The Associate Minister unveiled the church's new campaign slogan last Sunday: "I Upped My Pledge - Up Yours".

How many have ever read the book Hinds Feet for High Places? By Hannah Hurnard, I love this book and it is a allegory about a little crippled girl and her walk with the Shepherd, it shows us our walk with our great Shepherd, and all the battles that come in our life, and how he helps us fight off the enemy, and gives us strength for the day, here are some good scriptures about having Hinds feet, read them in your Bible and see what God speaks to you about them. I recommend this book if you can get it, most Christian book stores carry it. It is a good teaching and learning book to grow in grace. Here are the scriptures I do love:

2 Samuel 22:34 "He maketh my feet like hinds' feet: and setteth me upon my high places".
Psalms 18:33 "He maketh my feet like hinds' feet, and setteth me upon my high places".
Habakkuk 3:19 "The LORD God is my strength, and he will make my feet like hinds' feet, and he will make me to walk upon mine high places. To the chief singer on my stringed instruments".

I hope your Monday is a very blessed one, that you get accomplished all you intend, and that God gives you the strength to get it all done, Be blessed and do be a blessing to some one today.

Oh I am so happy to hear your pep in your step this morning. I needed it tis morning.
You have a wonderful day!

Thanks for your post this morning, Barb. I hadn't thought of the book Hinds Feet on High Places, probably for about 15 yrs. I had it yrs ago, and don't know what happened to my copy. I'll have to look for it at a local Christian bookstore. It reminds me that God gives us the strength we need to make it thru trying times, as well as everyday occurences. Many blessings to you this day, and this week, my southern-friend. Take care, from KY.

I hope you have a blessed day and get everything accomplished you set out to. Hopefully there is cooler air coming in if we can make it through today. Thanks for the book recommendation. Will look for it.

Kay said...

Thank you for mentioning the book. I haven't read it before, so will look for it.
I loved reading the bulletin errors! lol

Hi, I have been enjoying catching up on reading your posts, except for the snake...shudder, shiver,..snakes creep me out.I am happy for your husband it was not a poisonous snake. Your road looks like many of the roads I do my back road wanderings on, I do not wander far on a rainy day. I love the country and you are blessed to have such a wonderful peaceful setting for your home. I feel as a pastoral family you need this peaceful place. I hope to return to my blog in a couple of weeks...I am missing it. Blessings. Dee

I tried to comment several times. I'm going to see if this will go thru now.

Aliene said...

It got there. I have Hinds Feet On High Places several times. Have you ever read In His Steps?

Barbara said...

Yes In His Steps is another wonderful book how a whole town can change when they put Christ first, we both have read it and loaned it out for others to read, a great old book for sure, thanks for all the comments, and these books are sure worth reading.

Hi Barbara, I always enjoy the church bulletin jokes/mistakes.... I've read them for years --and never tire of them...

That book looks interesting... Thanks for telling us about it...
