Sunday to Tuesday

96 dpi 4x6 laundrySunday, July 10 it was my good pleasure to speak for the West President Church of Christ in Greenwood, MS. During Bible class, I made my PowerPoint presentation about “2015 Asia & 2016 South America Mission Trips.” Neither visas nor passports were required! I’m almost positive that no one suffered jetlag, and anyone who might have fallen asleep did so based on other issues. For morning worship, I preached with the aid of PowerPoint once more, “The Deity of Christ.”

Various speakers are participating daily in the congregation’s Gospel meeting this year, and I was delighted to be one of them. Brother Nathan Wright, preacher of the church, texted me to make sure everything was set for me speaking and to invite me for supper. I replied, “Tonight?!” I briefly considered texting additionally, “I’m in Alabama!” However, instead, I assured him that I was looking forward to supper and to the meeting. I was accompanied by sister Betty Choate as well as brother Jerry and sister Paula Bates; we are fellow team members of World Evangelism in Winona. Rebecca, my daughter, is still with me and attended the supper and Gospel meeting.

In addition, I’m up to my elbows if not also up to my eyeballs in behind the scenes efforts for our Lord (e.g., printing projects, The Voice of Truth International, etc.). There is no lack of purpose in my life (and eternity), without which I would be adrift on so many levels.

Nevertheless, there crop up from time to time as I travel around the country some photo opportunities that bring about a pause and some idle reflection. Take for instance the outdoor, motel Laundromat wedged between a soft drink machine and an ice machine in a breezeway. At a remodeled Dairy Queen along the byways traveled recently, Rebecca and I deliberated about the advisability, esthetics and safety of hanging electric cords from ceiling lights throughout the establishment tied up and shortened with garbage bag twisties. I guess someone’s car suffered a burned out license plate light, which the driver resolved by taping a flashlight to the trailer hitch and aiming it at the car tag. Finally, I parked my car adjacent to a private driveway sign that reads, “Frog Parking Only! All Others Will be TOAD!” Smile.
