Revival Meetings Begin Tomorrow In Branford, FL

Please be in prayer for these services.

A Lasting Marriage

A couple was celebrating their golden wedding anniversary on the beach in Montego Bay, Jamaica. Their domestic tranquility had long been the talk of the town. People would say, 'What a peaceful & loving couple'.

The local newspaper reporter was inquiring as to the secret of their long and happy marriage. The Husband replied: 'Well, it dates back to our honeymoon in America,' explained the man. 'We visited the Grand Canyon, in Arizona, and took a trip down to the bottom of the canyon, by horse. We hadn't gone too far when my wife's horse stumbled and she almost fell off. My wife looked down at the horse and quietly said, 'That's once.'

'We proceeded a little further and her horse stumbled again. Again my wife quietly said, 'That's twice.' We hadn't gone a half-mile when the horse stumbled for the third time my wife quietly removed a revolver from her purse and shot the horse dead.

I SHOUTED at her, 'What's wrong with you, Woman! Why did you shoot the poor animal like that, are you crazy!?' She looked at ME, and quietly said, 'That's once.' And from that moment..... we have lived happily ever after.'

Church Restoration Project

There was a tradesman, a painter named Jack, who was very interested in making a dollar where he could. So he often would thin down his paint to make it go a wee bit further. As it happened, he got away with this for some time.Eventually the local church decided to do a big restoration project. Jack put in a painting bid and, because his price was so competitive, he got the job. And so he started, erecting the trestles and putting up the planks, and buying the paint and thinning it down with turpentine.

Jack was up on the scaffolding, painting away, the job nearly done, when suddenly there was a horrendous clap of thunder. The sky opened and the rain poured down, washing the thin paint from all over the church and knocking Jack off the scaffold to land on the lawn.

Jack was no fool. He knew this was a judgment from the Almighty, so he fell on his knees and cried, "Oh, God! Forgive me! What should I do?"

And from the thunder, a mighty Voice spoke, "Repaint! Repaint! And thin no more!"

Salvation by Annoyance

An exasperated mother, whose son was always getting into mischief, finally asked him, "How do you expect to get into Heaven?"

The boy thought it over and said, "Well, I'll run in and out and in and out and keep slamming the door until St. Peter says, 'For Heaven's sake, Dylan, come in or stay out!'"

76'ers Meet At Homecoming

I recently had the opportunity to preach the 60th Anniversary Homecoming at Mt. Zion New Congregational Methodist Church in Macclenny, Florida. It was a great day of music, food, fellowship, making new friends and rekindling old friendships. Oh, yes, there was even a little preaching too.

Pastor Tim Cheshire and his wife Susan (pictured with me at left) made me feel right at home. I even had the opportunity to see three ladies that graduated with me in 1976 from Baker County High School, then located in Macclenny. Our graduating class was the "Spirit of 76"! It had been so long since I had seen them that they had to introduce themselves to me. For some reason they remembered me, although I'm not sure how. It was great to talk to them again after so many years and learn how the Lord has worked in their lives. I was able to convince the ladies to have a photo taken of our 76'ers group. Pictured left to right are: Karen Sue Lauramore Matthews; June Davis Altman, yours truly, and Mary Faye Davis Griffin.

Homecomings can be a time to remember the past, but they should always be a time to worship our Lord and seek His Will for our future. If we give Him His rightful place in our heart and life we will certainly have an even greater homecoming celebration in the future!

I want to give a special thanks to Marie Johns for taking the photos.
