Saturday with the Fam, I think it was for Julie's birthday!

Ok, I was thinking of the tune "Saturday, at the park, I think it was the 4th of July....I've been waiting such a long time, for today!" Great day, starting with Lori fixing breakfast for Julie and me. It was an extension of Julie's birthday that Lori had planned. Then off to our first time of a manicure/pedicure. It was a nice one time thing for us to do. Smooth feet, cuticles removed from hands. I've never been one to take time to make anything special of my nails except clean of course.

Then across town to an antique store for a look/see. Then back into town to meet Rick for a special lunch and on to a small garden/landscape show in town, eyeing those garden and flower plants to get ready for spring.

Next stop, home and song practice and some fun together with the instruments. And on to be some with some friends at their church to hear about their missionary trip to Jamaica. It was an encouragement and a continuing of what God has been quietly speaking to me about.

The stories of the Jamaican Christians  being hungry for the Word of God, and tracts about Jesus. Excited about reading them and happy though their means of living is very meager or severely handicapped. How many people in America are that hungry for God, even in churches? We have so much in America compared to them, yet what we have can become idols because of the time spent with all we do have and leaving God for last.

For any who read this, having a personal experience with Jesus in your heart is more important than anything else we can do. It is not enough to say we believe in Him, but to believe in Him enough to ask forgiveness for sins and follow Him with all our heart and do what He asks of us.
