FROM THE PASTOR’S DESK

June is the month that marks the half waypoint in the year. From here on out it is down hill. It won’t be long before we’re wishing people a Happy Thanksgiving and Merry Christmas. June is also the time for graduations, weddings, and vacations. It also happens to be the month when we honor our fathers. For many of us, we can only honor the memory of our fathers, but we do so with much thanksgiving. I hope that each of you will take the time to honor your father, to let him know just how much he means to you.Of course, we all have a father who is very much alive and does so many wonderful things for each of us, our Heavenly Father. We need to honor Him each day and let Him know just how much we appreciate Him. Happy Father’s Day!


My Dad

My dad was a kind hearted man who loved his family and neighbors. Daddy knew mama loved her soap operas. Every Monday through Friday, when you saw daddy back out of the driveway, you knew it was time for mama’s first soap opera. They started at 12:30. Daddy would make his rounds of the coffee shops and repair shops, and shoot the breeze with his friends. They always tried to solve the problems of the world. Daddy always managed to pull into the driveway when the last soap was going off which was 4:00. One afternoon I happened to be there when daddy got home. Mama talked about the characters on her soaps like they were family. She was telling me about all the troubles with a family by the name of Dixon. I didn’t think daddy was listening. All of a sudden he got up out of his recliner, and headed for the front door. I asked him where he was going, his response was to see about the Dixon’s. [There was a family named Dixon in the neighborhood.] I started laughing and told him mama was talking about one of her soaps. Boy was he aggravated with mama. Dag bob it betty!!!!!!!! You and your soaps. He never lived that down. Daddy had a wonderful sense of humor, and liked nothing better than to pull a prank on anyone.Happy Fathers Day to all fathers young and old.


Dad's Image

It seems to go something like this when it comes to dad;

At age 4: “ My daddy can do anything!”
At age 7: “ My dad sure knows a lot, a whole lot!”
At age 8: “ My dad doesn’t know quite everything.”
At age 12: “ Oh well’ naturally, my dad doesn’t know that either.”
At age 21: “ Oh’ that man, he’s sure not with it.”
At age 25: “Dad well, he does know a little bit about it.”
At age 35: “ Before we decide what to do, we’ll talk to dad and get his ideas first.”
At age 50: “ I wonder, what dad would have thought about that?”
At age 60: “My dad knew something about literally everything!”
At age 65: “I really wish I could talk it over with dad just once more!”

Thanks to Elaine Kee for this piece.

JOKE OF THE MONTH

 

A minister parked his car in a no-parking zone in a large city because he was short of time and couldn’t find a space with a meter. So he put a note under the windshield wiper that read: “I have circled the block 100 times. If I don’t park here, I’ll miss my appointment. Forgive us our trespasses.”

When he returned, he found a citation from a police officer along with this note. “I’ve circled this block for 10 years. If I don’t give you a ticket, I’ll lose my job. Lead us not into temptation.”

BIBLE WORD SEARCH:
NAMES FOR GOD



CREATOR, FATHER, FORGIVER, HOLY ONE, I AM, IMMANUEL, KING, LORD, MAKER, MASTER, REDEEMER, YAHWEH
