Well the temperature is dropping and the wind is picking up, so I guess it is a good night to make soup. I have the broth all thawed out, and there are a bunch of vegetables in the fridge that I have to do something with soon, so I will get out the slo-cooker and start cutting them all up. The soup can cook while I sleep, and in the morning it should be pretty much finished as far as everything being done. But soup is so much better after it has cooked for 24 hours. So I will just let it cook all day too. Then either make a loaf of french bread or go to the store and buy one and have nice home made soup for supper tomorrow night.
Still want to do some cleaning before I go to bed. The house is a tad messy been crafting in the livingroom all day, and the cat did his part by dragging scraps all over the house.
While watching a little TV on Sunday instead of going
to church, I watched a Church in Atlanta honoring one of its senior pastors who
had been retired many years. He was 92 at that time and I wondered why the
Church even bothered to ask the old gentleman to preach at that
After a warm welcome, introduction of this
speaker, and as the applause quieted down he rose from his high back chair and
walked slowly, with great effort and a sliding gate to the podium. Without a
note or written paper of any kind he placed both hands on the pulpit to steady
himself and then quietly and slowly he began to
was asked to come here today and talk to you, your pastor asked me to tell you
what was the greatest lesson ever learned in my 50 odd years of preaching. I
thought about it for a few days and boiled it down to just one thing that made
the most difference in my life and sustained me through all my trials. The one
thing that I could always rely on when tears and heart break and pain and fear
and sorrow paralyzed me................the only thing that would comfort was
"Jesus loves me this I know. For the
Bible tells me so. Little ones to Him belong, we are weak but He is strong..... Yes, Jesus loves
me... The Bible tells me so."
When he finished, the church was quiet. You actually
could hear his footsteps as he shuffled back to his chair. I don't believe I
will ever forget it. A pastor once stated…………….
"I always noticed that it was the adults who chose the
children's hymn 'Jesus Loves Me' (for the children of course) during a hymn
sing, and it was the adults who sang the loudest because I could see they knew
it the best."
