Oil For Your Lamp - Message #4
Sent March 28, 4:10pm
I am standing here in my at my computer, thinking about all of you. Thought I would jump into your inbox and say, “Hi!”
How are you passing your time? Movies, news, a book, knitting, walks, touring the world on the Internet? Maybe napping? Perhaps working from home?
Perhaps you are alone? With your family?
Just know we are thinking about you. It’s Saturday afternoon. Here, John Wayne is filling the space and time.
Yesterday, when visiting a nursing home (They took my temperature and I had to have a good reason to get in), there was an elderly woman outside the locked door. She was hoping to visit her husband who is a resident in the facility. If denied, she would go to his widow and wave at him. Boy, this situation is so unfamiliar to us!
With the passing of our member, Chuck Arthur, the service may be at the graveside only. Others are doing the same. Another difficult thing for us.
And pray for the family of Zachary John Salewski, the grandson of Jack and Bev. “Heroic Zack”, passed to glory on March 23. You can read inspiring Zack's story here.
A young man from Milwaukee texted me last night and asked, “What do you think it will be like to be sinless in heaven?” My reply was this, “It will be like when we are in worship at church, that’s as close as we can get for now. Worship is an experience that is so Divine, we cannot tell if we are in Heaven or on Earth.”
I am sure looking forward to our gathering as a group, in person, again!
Well, you have a good rest. Don’t forget about worship in the morning. I double dog dare you to dress up!
Check this link out often, to see what’s up. Tomorrow, two Bible classes and worship.
God bless your rest, each and every one of you!

Humor for The Day - I heard that someone asked Albert Einstein why we had time. He is said to have replied, “If we did not have time, everything would happen all at once.”
