The Saturday that "got away"

Sorry for the late post today...neither one of us slept well last night. So it's been a rather lazy, try to catch up on some rest kind of day. But I didn't want to let the day get away from me without taking the opportunity to wish you all a most blessed Sunday!

My Sweet Hubby and I are so looking forward to church and Sunday School tomorrow...we've missed the past two weeks due to hospitalizations. We did our SS lesson this evening, so we're prepared - it should be a great class! Tomorrow's lesson focuses on King Saul and the topic is "obeying the Lord completely." It never hurts to be reminded of that!
"And Samuel said, 'Has the Lord as great delight in burnt offerings and sacrifices as in obeying the voice of the Lord? Behold, to obey is better than sacrifice, and to listen than the fat of the rams. For rebellion is as the sin of witchcraft, and stubbornness is as iniquity and idolatry. Because you have rejected the word of the Lord, he has also rejected you from being king.'" 1 Samuel 15:22-23
Let me know how your church service and SS class went..."See ya" Monday!

Church was great both times today. SS lesson was the Samaritan woman at the well, and Discipleship Training lesson was on supporting our missionaries, both in prayer and monetarily. Morning sermon was from Acts 3:19, and tonight's sermon was from Ezekiel 22:30-31, standing in the gap.

I hope you and your dear hubby made it to at least one service today. Both would be even better! Hope he's feeling better and has more energy after the transfusions earlier in the week.

Have a great new week, Gigi! :o)

Love and hugs,

Diane ~ sounds like you had a fabulous, worship-filled Sunday! We went to 9:15 service and then our 11:00 Sunday School class. Our church does not have a Sunday evening service. Pastor T continued our study in the Book of Acts (21:17-40). He spoke of Paul's humility and his willingness to compromise on non-essential matters in order to win souls for Jesus. The gist of the sermon was that we need to seek to find common ground with others...

Our Sunday School class is studying 1 and 2 Samuel this Fall. Yesterday's lesson was on complete obedience to the Lord (1 Samuel 13:1-15:35) and how Saul's deviation from the Will of God led to his downfall. Great lesson!! I think it's so easy to fall into the trap of picking and choosing how (or how far!) we will obey the Lord. A slippery slope for sure!

I wish you a wonderful week as well!

Thank you putz...and I agree - forward action brings a measure of hope. But we never forget that our help comes from the Lord! I rely on Him to guide my steps!
